I was there and remember Frasier Clemo making an athletic catch over his head in the ingoal area to prevent a Racing try.

Could’ve been mistaken mind you.

Stayed in the nearby hotel that Racing used as pre match changing. Their presence meant a closed bar ☹️

Maybe wrong but I think that was the first time we did a rendition of Flower Of Scotland for John Barclay pitchside at the end of the game.

Four supporters buses left Parc y Scarlets at 3am Friday morning.
,with the game on the Friday night. I don't think the lonesome bar person in the Ibis knew   what hit her when we all turned up. The stadium was the location of the Paris Olympics where the film chariots of fire   was based on. It was also where Benny won his first cap.   Epic weekend. .

I was there. An amazing game, and two amazing nights drinking with fellow Scarlets.

The trip where French men were singing ‘we all dream of a team of Samson lees....’

I was there, the 3am start to get to a game that started at7pm GMT was truly an epic endeavour by all who travelled. As ever Bus 1 was the bus to be on, party central.

Wasn't there for the Scarlets' game - but I DID see Benny's first cap - one of the first substitutes in test rugby (maybe Wales's first? I forget) - came on very late for Gerald Davies, and I don't think he touched the ball! The ground was called Stade Colombes, back then.

(BTW - I don't think Racing 92 play there any more, so don't go to the wrong place!)

I think it was the first ever international cap. I wasn't there as I would have been several months old, but seem to recall from trivia questions he played fullback for that game. Not certain of course.

  Benny did Win his 1st Cap there in1969,it was brilliant to see Phil on one of the four supporters buses out in Paris for that historic win over Racing .

I wasn't able to find if Benny was Wales's first ever sub (though I think it likely), but had forgotten that Mike Gibson for Barry John in a Lions v SA test in 1968 was the first ever; Ian Macrae for Scotland was the first in the 5N.

I was there, sitting on the bird poo covered seats, what a disgusting stadium for a team with so much money that attracted so many expensive players just hope their new stadium is up to standard! LOL

I don’t think that you need to worry about bird poo or anything unpleasant at their new stadium. It’s an extremely impressive indoor arena in a very nice part of Paris. I’m sure those scarlet fans making the journey to Paris next weekend will find the stadium a vast improvement over the old one.
All the pressure is on them next weekend with Ulster beating them yesterday so who knows what will happen.

If we play same team as played Leicester I fancy us to do it! There was a significant change yesterday. But with Six Nations ahead I dont think it will be same team.

The forward power we will be up against next week in Paris is light years ahead of what we saw from the Tigers yesterday. Show the same intensity and desire and we will give them a game for sure. It will be great preparation for Leinster away.
