So 2 visits to S Africa without our internationals.

And the Welsh derbies 14 days before the Autumn tests start. We should be okay here if the ruling is 13 day release.

We're getting shafted with S.Africa trip the week before Euro round 3, and Glasgow getting similar treatment before Euro round 1.

Funny how it hasn't happened to any of the Irish teams but hey-ho....

And during 6 Nations we play Leinster twice, Munster and Ulster it's almost as though they're scared of our first team.

Will we ever get to go to Rodney Parade again? That was the best trip on the calendar.

I have missed it. I genuinely have no idea how they work out who plays 11 home games one season and who plays 10, and whether they switch it year on year. I must have missed it in the copious amounts of information the Pro14 have released in the last month to keep us informed.

Can you enlighten? Thanks

Doesn't every Welsh and Irish team have 10 home games (6 in our own conference, 4 against half of the 8 in the other conference)? The odd numbers only applies to Scottish, Italian and SA teams surely.

Ah right thanks, I hadn't seen that.

Given we don't know who we'll be in a conference with, and all teams in the conference need to play home and away, is this easy to do?

Apologies if this has been covered.

Not having seen the complete fixtures for the last weekend. Maybe they've got round it by all Conference A matches kicking off at say 15:00 and all Conference B games kicking off at 17:30, that's if that weekend has all matches being played within the same Conference (except one game will have to be
A v B (maybe SA v SA )

8+8=16, it's the Pro14...... with only 7 teams per conference.

we have 6 home games from our conference teams + 2 home derby games and then this season we have 2 out of 5 teams at home and then next season we will have 3 out of 5 at home.

No, it's impossible to guarantee, due to the change in the make up of conferences each year, as you rightly surmise. Also - aren't the Yanks joining next season? Confused

So we could play 6 home games less than cardiff over the length of this new Pro14 agreement? That can't be right can it?

Another relatively interesting one, number of games covered by our providers:-
Obviously some other games covered by ALBA and TG4 etc.

The reason we have a total of 14 from 11 games is because some games are covered by both Sky and S4C for example. But same logic/totals applied across all four.

Hello out there,
The published match schedules have been the final straw and unless things change for the better, I'm going to be a TV-based supporter only  Here is the text of a message I sent to the Scarlets by e-mail. 

It's another complaint, but I feel I need to speak up.

Okay, I know I'm beginning to sound like a grumpy old man.  I've become that way for a reason, and some of it has to do with the PRO12's money grubbing and the Scarlets connivance in making rugby in Wales more like the business of football than the sport I know and love.

The Scarlets are supposed to be a regional team and draw their support from west and mid Wales.
I live between Lampeter and Llanybydder - look them up on a map - and you'll see it's right in the heart of your region.

I'm a season ticket holder.  Have been off and on for 12 years, as circumstances allowed.

But this will be the last season I come to watch Scarlets matches.

Why?  Simple really, you make it easier for me to watch the games on TV.
You schedule matches to suit your television audience, not the fans.

Timings are geared to the TV audience, not the fans that should be filling the stadium watching the most exciting team in the PRO12 (or 14 if you count the South African interlopers).

At 1935 hrs on a Saturday evening, the kickoff is pretty much ideal, if I watch the match on TV.
But not for the travelling fan, as it takes well over an hour to get to Llanelli for us by car (by public transport would be about a day). 

Then after the game getting home - if we are not still stuck at the car park exit -  we are close to midnight.
That's not a fun drive on an autumn or winter night.  You try it.

So both my wife and I will continue, after this season, to be Scarlets supporters but from our sofa and not in the stands.
TV money rules, and the fans who made the club, come second.

No wonder you are finding it so hard to fill the stadium. 

Come on Scarlets management, get a grip. 
You have talent on the field, but none in the boardroom.

Bit harsh that Scarlet in Drefach. The boardroom have done a magnificent job in the last 6 or 7 years. I'm as frustrated as the next man at the new format, kick off times, lack of tv income, lack of games featuring our best players. They do not suit me in the slightest, and I will not make 50% of the home games. But the Scarlets hands are tied here. It's the sacrifice all the pro clubs have to make (except Ulster of course) to enable us to keep in existence in the short term. Your anger should be directed elsewhere.

Hello out there,
The published match schedules have been the final straw and unless things change for the better, I'm going to be a TV-based supporter only  Here is the text of a message I sent to the Scarlets by e-mail. 

<font size="2" color="blue" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">
It's another complaint, but I feel I need to speak up.






Okay, I know I'm beginning to sound like a grumpy
old man.  I've become that way for a reason, and some of it has to do
with the PRO12's money grubbing and the Scarlets connivance in making
rugby in Wales more like the business of football than the sport I know
and love.







The Scarlets are supposed to be a regional team and draw their support from west and mid Wales.


I live between Lampeter and Llanybydder - look them up on a map - and you'll see it's right in the heart of your region.






I'm a season ticket holder.  Have been off and on for 12 years, as circumstances allowed.






But this will be the last season I come to watch Scarlets matches.




Why?  Simple really, you make it easier for me to watch the games on TV.


You schedule matches to suit your television audience, not the fans.






Timings are geared to the TV audience, not the fans
that should be filling the stadium watching the most exciting team in
the PRO12 (or 14 if you count the South African interlopers).






At 1935 hrs on a Saturday evening, the kickoff is pretty much ideal, if I watch the match on TV.



But not for the travelling fan, as it takes well
over an hour to get to Llanelli for us by car (by public transport would
be about a day). 







Then after the game getting home - if we are not still stuck at the car park exit -  we are close to midnight.


That's not a fun drive on an autumn or winter night.  You try it.






So both my wife and I will continue, after this season, to be Scarlets supporters but from our sofa and not in the stands.


TV money rules, and the fans who made the club, come second.







No wonder you are finding it so hard to fill the stadium. 







Come on Scarlets management, get a grip. 



You have talent on the field, but none in the boardroom.





With all due respect, the Scarlets are incumbent on the tv companies as to when matches are played. If Sky, BBC or S4C say they want a certain game at a certain time, there's not a lot we can do about it.

It's not always about where you end up, it's about how you get there.

You're punishing the Scarlets for things beyond their control. You speak of the scarlets making rugby "like the business of football". At the end of the day it is a business. One that employs hundreds of people.
"Scarlets are supposed to be a regional team" yet we just won the Pro12, on a tiny budget, with boys from Llanelli (Samson), Pembroke (Rob), Carmarthen (Ken) etc. Not just that, these boys are all internationals too.
The scarlets run outreach to schools around the region and lay on buses to pick people up for games.
The board have just signed a British Lion to add to the two we already have, from the three we sent on the last tour. They put together a superb coaching team and get them playing superb rugby, and most importantly have put money in their pocket year after year to stop us being the Dragons.
The Dragons have an early afternoon kick off the first game of the year. They also have hardly any international standard players, are in huge debt, have an uncertain future, and have finished in the bottom four of the league how many years in a row?
The board don't deserve this unwarranted stick.

I'm a bit disappointed that we play 7/10 of our home league games by 05/01/2018. Of the remaining 3 games, 2 of them are played on consecutive weeks.  Surely the games could have been spread out a bit more.

Scarlet-in-Drefach - You're absolutely entitled to your rant, Richard, if you feel that strongly, but if any of SospanMawr's more-than-valid counter-points cause you to send a slight apology to 'the board' for some of your comments, I think we'd all understand. Hug

I've just booked 7 tickets to the opening game, including 4 for a former Os ST holder & his family who are minded to come to PyS this season (well, the teenage son, an ex-Ospreys ball-boy, may need to be sedated to get him over the Loughor), and I hope many people can get along to support this remarkable team, despite the fact that the TV times often make it less convenient for the local fan. Have to say, the 400-mile round trip isn't too convenient for me, but I'll make as many games as time allows.

How am I punishing the Scarlets if I choose to stop being a season ticket holder?  It's my only method of protest (other than forums like this).

Who else in the Scarlets should I hold accountable for the acceptance of the playing schedule?  Not the players or on-field and back-room staff.  It's the board who are the managers and organisers. 

And yes, I accept that for the Scarlets there has been a tremendous on-field success steadily built on a low-budget plan over the last couple of years, and I'm as happy as Larry that we secured the services of young Mr Halfpenny.

But that still does not make me believe that the next seasons kick off times should almost all be geared to the TV companies bidding.

If we don't want Parcy Scarlets to be an echoing and half empty venue for each home game then we need to consider the fans. 

Some fans, like you, may make a round trip of 400 miles for the occasional game.  But how many hundreds more would regularly attend if the games were held at more convenient times for those who travel?  But then again I suppose the bean-counters weigh these potential additional 'bums-on-seats against the revenues from TV and guess who wins?

And given the attendance at last seasons games it seemed to make little noticable difference.
But why?

I think that the balance is wrong, and it's skewed by TV money away from attending matches to the TV watchers.  I would like to believe that the board would consider each home match as a spectator event, with TV coverage as a nice to have.  But money talks.

And I'm realistic enough to know that's not going to happen while the big Englsih clubs spend money they haven't got, to attract the best players, from wherever they want. 

So what do we, the fans, do about it?
I for one write snotty-grams to the Scarlets in an attempt to make my feelings known.
Others just don't go to the games any more.

Really? You're punishing them by taking away income and support. Your reasoning is like refusing to buy a Ford because you don't like the speed limit - you're punishing the wrong people.

Neither do I. But no TV money = no Scarlets, in all probability.

How do you work that out?
Unlike you to mis the detail of the league's approach to fixture planning.

OR

You might not trust the message.........


I have missed it. I genuinely have no idea how they work out who plays 11 home games one season and who plays 10, and whether they switch it year on year. I must have missed it in the copious amounts of information the Pro14 have released in the last month to keep us informed.

Can you enlighten? Thanks


Quick answer: as per the 6N.


Ah right thanks, I hadn't seen that.

Given we don't know who we'll be in a conference with, and all teams in the conference need to play home and away, is this easy to do?

Apologies if this has been covered.
No, it's impossible to guarantee, due to the change in the make up of conferences each year, as you rightly surmise. Also - aren't the Yanks joining next season? Confused

if you listen to the video put together for the Pro 14, there is a part either vrbally by eddie butler or in the paperwork Pro 14 have put out that states, any time that plays less home games this season, will play more next season

Yes, they officially state on their website that any team playing 10 home games this season will play 11 next season.

Is that easy to ensure, given that the conferences will be settled via league placings?

I dont think they can say any team playing 10 this year WILL play 11 next year, as it could end up with every side who played 10 in the same conference next year (mathematically), however I believe the intention is there to try to make it fair.  Guess it will be up to our reps to push the case in to them that we are entitled to 11 home games next season when the scheduling convos begin, and hope that we shout louder than the rest of the 10 game sides.

It does specifically state that on their website. They should probably say "we will do our best to ensure teams alternate", rather than imply it's guaranteed:

Yep it would make more sense for them to admit that it will most likely not be possible, but I think they would rather just go on the grounds that the TV fans dont really care, so there wont be too much of an uproar when it doesn't work.

Just noticed this, back to the bad old days of ridiculous fixture scheduling I thought we'd sorted this out. I'm off to the Ulster website right now - I'll be back.

Are the Anglo-Welsh games included in the season ticket? In the renewal pack send out at the end of the season it said that the season ticket was for 11 Pro 12 games and 3 Champions Cup games with no mention of the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

Also good for those who bemoan our loss of a trip to Rodney Parade because of Judgement Day. I'm severely suspicious of the way this competition is drawn that must be Sale 4 out of the last 6 seasons and, unless I'm very much mistaken, we've never drawn the Ospreys which would give us a half tidy crowd. A nice day out in London though and a Charity Shield type clash of the champions. But I really, really want Newcastle away.

They usually are and i can't see any reason they'll change it this season especially given the loss of 1 home league match.

It would be disastrous to make these games all-to-pay I'd have thought. Crowds will be low enough as is.

Am I the only who has noticed how, compared to many other teams, far too many of the Scarlets' fixtures, both in the league and in Europe, are late evening ones?  Especially considering how short, cold and wet the days are by then, and how Scarlets fans often have to come from remote and poorly-connected rural areas in West Wales, it really is unfair!

Does anyone know for certain what time the Cheetahs game kicks off on December 2nd? My 3 sources:

Scarlets website - reckons all KO times are local but has it kicking off there at 21:35, which would be 19:35 UK. I believe this one to be definitely incorrect as the whole fixtures section seems broken.

Pro14 website - has KO time as 19:35, though i cannot see it stipulated i believe they put the times as local KO, so therefore would be 17:35 KO UK.

Superbru - KO times are definitely set to UK time but this goes against the other two entirely and has 15:30 KO time UK.
