Cheetahs can qualify for playoffs but not Europe.

Rest anyone carrying a niggle or who has played a lot of 6 Nations.
Play everyone else. I would like a team of:
1) Rob 2) Elias 3) Samson 4) Bulbring 5) Cummins/Rawlins 6) Shingler 7) Cubby 8) Boyde
9) Jon 10) Patch 11) Tom Varndell 12) Scott 13) Steff H 14) Asquith 15) Tom Williams

16) Ken 17) Phil Price 18) Gardiner 19) Cummins/Rawlins 20) MacLeod 21) Aled 22) Dan 23) Ioan Nicholas

Meaning we rest Kruger, Beirne, Barclay, Gar Dave, Parkes, Steff, Halfpenny as all have a big part to play vs La Rochelle.

Honestly not sure whats best to do against munster. Fair few will need the week off id say but we don't want to be in a situation where the team are not quite clicking in the first half against la rochelle. The good thing is that so many scarlets players were in the welsh camp together.

We could always bench the ‘big name’ players and use them for impact.

I think a lot will depend on the team that play France. If Gareth and Steff start I'd bench them for Munster game. Other than that I'd start everyone so they have time to gel back to the Scarlets way of playing.

Yes, especially if we have a lot of players on the field this weekend.  I expect at least 4 backs and 4 forwards to start this weekend, with 2 or 3 on the bench.

Very good point. They can rest for a few weeks after the QF!

Just a thought but how definite is the story that Munster won't be playing their Irish Internationals?

  Read the story on the Irish Times Link  yesterday, it said Munster and Leinster would not be expecting there Internationals back for there Pro.14 games prior to there European Quarter Finals a week later, after an agreement with the IRFU .

So if Leinster are not fully loaded after 6N, perhaps the O's can do us a favour by beating them !!!

Hopefully they can but that’s not a cert the way the ospreys are playing at the moment. They may stand a chance if they pick their Welsh players but their fringe players are not capable of beating Leinster on their current form.

Tongue in cheek comment? Been on the Double Dragon early?


Or, a serious comment?


Hope you’re right, btw.

I'm fine thank you. Hope you and hours are too.

Ospreys internationals normally go straight back into the starting 15. AWJ apart, their internationals have been lightly used during this 6N.

Cheers, yes indeed 👍 thanks.

That’s good to hear. We can but hope.

Maybe their season ticket launch will coincide with an improvement on the pitch.

Fingers crossed.
