  So Leinster lose at home to Treviso 15-17 tonight,another interesting result in the phoney war leading up to next weeks Semi, Scarlets 2nds get a beating to a clinical Edinburgh team despite dominating possession and territory and the home team making twice the tackles as the visiting Scarlets .

  Hugely disappointing was that the Scarlets  seemed  poorly prepared, despite Edinburgh been known for there rushed defence that  the Blues ruthlessly exposed there flawed defensive game a few weeks back with a  clever kicking game disappointing

So all we need is to score about 20 tries against the Dragons and Leinster lose in Connacht and we finish top and get a week off.

So with all the nonsense spouted about the pshycological effect of todays defeat, what is worse losing by 40 odd points with a second side away or losing at home to a side you should be beating with a half tidy side

What's worse is the 3rd option, which is "crap, if we'd put our first team out, we'd be top of the league now".

The best season of Treviso from 2012, when we beat us in the last match of the season at PYS

I know what you mean but this is called masochism! Proud to have you call the Scarlets US.

Pro 14 Twitter says Leinster will have to wait to try and clinch a home semi final after loss to Treviso?

What if we get 5 against Dragons and Leinster get nothing against Connacht? Both finish on 70 points?

Points difference is currently 126 points in their favour. They're finishing 1st.

Benetton are no mugs this season, remember that they were 2 minutes away from knocking us out of the european cup at home, so you underestimate them at your peril, as Leinster did yesterday and we did a few weeks ago.
It’s ironic that we have both lost games on the same weekends in recent weeks, so neither teams have benefited on the other’s losses to either pull away or close the gap to each other.
Benetton have beaten the top 2 teams in our conference and were a penalty kick with the last play of the match away from beating Toulon in the european cup and are breathing down the necks of Ulster for a top 4 finish.
It’s just a matter of who gets over this week’s defeats better.

Exactly - all this talk about if would have won today we would be within a point, same points as Leinster is superfilous. We had to rest players. So did Leinster. Even if we finish level on points, it goes to games win, where we would be equal and then points difference. Leinster are first. We should be second. Lets get the Euro SF out of the way, see where we stand re players, and then pick our best team to ensure we at least get 4. I seriously doubt Edin will get a BP win against Glasgow but we may need to go for 4 tries. We have played the Dragons 3 times at JD and won 3, scoring 4 tries in each of those 4 games. History is on our side. Application is what is needed. 
Scarlets before Wales

The highlighted sentence doesn't quite make sense. In any event we only beat them 21-16 last season. From memory we only managed 2 tries.
