Mark,its great that you are doing these rallying calls but how about one to the coaches and players as it's them that have let the fans down not vice versa.

I've gone for the Scarlets allocation; upper tier behind the posts.  I'm hoping that's where all the singing will come from. 

It's going to be brutal and bigger than a normal derby -  so much at stake for both sides.  Now's not the time for negativity, we have all summer for that. Smile

Purchased x 4 same section as yourself. Completely agree with you, none of us would have wanted this to be the play off that we would competing for at this end of the season but slightly ironic that we play our biggest rivals to secure our place in the top tier of Europe with everything that has taken place not so many weeks ago regarding the dreaded merger. Not for me to tell people what to spend their hard earned money on but I hope that everyone who made noise at the time of the merger suggestion shows what the scarlets existence means to them by going and supporting them at the Liberty. Whilst our current predicament isnt ideal, at least we have our identity and a chance (coaches, players and fans) to put in a solid away performance to put this season to bed and start with a clean sheet in September. C'mon Scarlets!!!

We are in NU5 the bulk of people are in the North as I understand at moment .

I agree Nigel, I hope the coaches and players give us the attitude and performance they are capable of and the supporters deserve and have been craving for all season,if not they will be the first Scarlet clad team ever to play outside the top level in the Europeans Cup.

Our chances in this game are pretty low in my opinion. I appreciate the drum beat of supporters for the game but you cannot hide from the facts. Players and coaches have in no way fulfilled their potential this season. For us to expect them to somehow turn that season long form around is a little desperate.

Most things are going in favour of the Ospreys for me at the moment. They have the momentum of some good match winning performances over the past weeks; they have a front 5 which will really fancy their chances against a dodgy lineout & front 5 lacking power. Admittedly having Jake, Aaron, Blade & Cubby back will be helpful but would be asking a hell of a lot for them to hit the ground running. They also have genuine leadership in the team whereas we are totally lacking. 

There is no doubt in my mind that our team this season do not deserve to qualify for the Champions Cup next season. Will I be pleased if we somehow win next weekend - of course but it will be that type of pleased which will be easily & quickly forgotten. 

For those who are ready to call me a fair weather supporter please resist as I have supported our boys through the last 50 years and have just renewed my season ticket - just call me a realist.

The Ospreys are an average side, if the Scarlets bring their A game they’ve a tidy chance. Big if I know

I don't but into this 'we don't deserve to be in the Champions Cup' next season narrative.  We came 4th in our group and have earned the right for this playoff.  If we win, then in my opinion we deserve to be in the Champipons Cup next season. 

If we lose, then yes, we don't deserve to be in it, but that's a debate for next Sunday. For now, we should all be 100% up for this.  It is effectively a knockout game for next season's Champions cup - lets treat it as such.

Well said, we finished 4th and earned the right to play in this game, so we do deserve this play off, just because we haven't been playing well we have managed to get into this game , its a one off game and one im sure the team will be chomping for after the way this season has gone

 100% agree its been a poor season but we finished 4th and entitled to our play off game, another footnote if it was not for that shocking double movement try in Treviso we would have finished third, only Frank Murphy and the Italian TMO will know how that was awarded .

if we had played our internationals at the arms park we wouldn't have been 38-0 down at 38 minutes we won 2nd half 17-3 so a poo decision in Italy is irrelevant.

  There is no way you can say we would have won that game in Cardiff even if we had picked our strongest 23,even allowing for our bonkers selection.

    What is unforgiveable is those match officials got it wrong after viewing the blatant double movement try on at least four occasions, despite all the commentary team picking it up in full speed as a Scarlets penalty, players and coaches jobs and clubs survival are dependant on such decisions .

Well I would question our deserving of a spot in the Champions Cup next season. OK technically we qualified for a play off. But surely we should be looking at ourselves and admitting that the Blues proved beyond any doubt that they are a better team than us by hammering us not once but twice. Oh and lets not forget the most embarrassing bit of all - losing to the Dragons who had 50+ points put on them by a combined 2nds/3rds of Leinster.

Many contributors on here are welcome to get excited about Saturday's game and describe it as one of the most important in our history - I just don't see it that way. I see it as two very average teams scrambling for a place neither really deserve when all 4 Irish regions qualify automatically. The WRU powerbrokers should be hanging their heads in shame.

I have some sympathy with your view GPR, but we shouldn’t judge whether or not we should be in the Champions Cup next year based on how we played against the Blues in the League this year. Our Champions Cup team would put the Blues Champions cup team to the sword for sure.   In fact, I’d rather be playing the Bleus than the Ospreys this Saturday.

But come on, you just have to get excited for thsi game on Saturday.

We can't change past results, but we can pave the future, and this game is an absolute starting point for next season. 

We have every chance to make Saturday night our best game of the season, and there is no reason why we can't do that. The boys need to dig deep, believe in themselves, and believe in their team mates. They have the ability, in abundance, they just need to back themselves and do what they are best at.

Bring it on I say!!!! ClapClapClapClap

Rob of course I will be excited when the game arrives but I get excited every time we take the field. However I am under no illusion that :-

1. We are favorites to win on Saturday;
2. A win will in any way disguise what has been an appalling season for players, coaches & supporters. 

I really don't agree with those who believe that this group of players & coaches can somehow turn around the way we have played all season for this one off game. Yes we do have a chance to win mainly because the Ospreys are not much better than us. However they did beat the Blues last time out whereas our last performance was our most embarrassing performance since Pivac took over!!!!

Much as we got stuffed by Cardiff, they stuffed up elsewhere and could only finish 5th in their conference.
The season has given little to smile about and plenty to get cross over.
Yet, we finished 4th so have rightly got this last chance saloon play-off for the Champions Cup.
It’s a European Knock Out game.
We need to give it our all.

Just got my ticket. Managed to get out of work earlier on Saturday and will make the 3 hour drive from South Devon only to drive back at 05.30 to start work the following day. As I've said previously it's not the playoff we would have wanted to be in but it's a massive game none the less. I hope everyone on here (and their friends / family) can do everything they can to be there and cheer to boys into the Champions cup next year. Really hoping my drive home will be reflecting on a memorable scarlets performance to end this season on a positive.
