Bath at home start at favourites.

But we are capable of engineering an upset.

Not having Foxy available for the rest of the season is our greatest loss. 

If we were also without Steff, Halfpenny and J-Mac I can't see us winning.

Am I the only one who fancies our pack to do a number on theirs?

Not sure if a number but yes I believe we can be on top. They are missing both Louw and Faletau, that's 2/3rds of their best backrow by a country mile. Beirne, Barclay and Cubby could have a field day.

No your not. If both packs play to their full potential including benches then we have a definite edge. I can't imagine either team is going to not be up for this game. It will depend on who can keep thinking and performing when the pressure comes on. I worry a bit about Rob Evans' discipline but that comes with the position I guess. It seems we are going to be missing at least 3 of our best back 4 players which means that we are very unlikely to blow teams away a la Munster last year.

We still have match winners behind in Cawdor, Scott, Asquith & Patchell; we still have one of the best back rows in Europe for dry weather rugby. All in all a tasty prospect.

Scarlets clearly have the better front row and back row while our locks are decent. Lets not make the Bath pack out to be something it's not. It will be tough but there's no reason why they Scarlets pack can't gain the upper hand

Bath scrum very vulnerable and our back row are far stronger,Bath have also leaked a lot of points and tries this season .

Last 6 games they have conceded a total of 175 points (against Worcester, Wasps, Sales, Toulon twice & Exeter, whereas we have conceded a total of 101 points (again last 6 games).

In terms of scoring we have managed 155 points against Baths 156.

I am travelling I feel if we had both Halfpenny & McNicholl playing we would win, but I feel without those two, we are struggling a bit, It will be very close, and I hope the 2 games over the Christmas period helped us.

Bath are a very strange side, I have friends who are season ticket holders and they were like the Scarlets a few years ago, when good very good, and when bad, awful. Lets hope they are not at their best.

No. We have an all international front row who are hitting form and a strong front row bench. Beirne and Cubby even though they are not internationals are two of the best in Europe in their positions. Barclay and Shingler who are both international class and an in form Dai Bulbring most likely. That is serious quality.
