Ospreys aren't used to teams having a better kicking game than them. 
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

That Osprey loss to Treviso changes everything I think.  The table on page 1 has them down as winning three of the remaining 4 games but they are capable of losing 3 of the 4 if not all of them.  And before this weekend we needed them to beat Ulster, but now its not so clear.  Ospreys game against Leinster will be a key game for them - lose and they are in trouble.

As long as we stay on track to win our remaining games, and if Leinster beat Os then the fifth spot will more or less go to the loser of the Ospreys v Ulster game.


I agree with all of that but there is another dynamic as well and that is their game against Stade next weekend. There are alot of possible outcomes from that game in the way it affects their run-in-not alot of them good for them at the moment. The key thing is our situation is no longer two teams battling for one place but three teams battling for two places.

Yes, Dai, they're still in the mix but they have to go to both Munster and Leinster for the run-in.

We're all set for the most exciting finish to a season for years. There were signs against Edinburgh that we can produce a high tempo threatening offensive game. It misfired later on but first game back there was bound to be some rustiness. One game at a time and all that, but we must surely fancy ourselves to beat Traviso and Dragons which then leads us to Connacht away. That game should be an absolute cracker as Connacht like to play an open offloading game. However its up front that we have a point to prove over there. And then... the finale to the regular season, the Ospreys at a sold out Parc Y Scarlets.

So first up Treviso, let's hope for a good crowd and then the Scarlet Army moves on to Cardiff, that should be a great day out. Huge pressure on the O's that day as there were signs yesterday that the Blues were coming out of their rut. 

Game on!

We have been lucky with injuries and. Look one of strongest squads in the run in.

Even leaving aside yesterday's travesty, I actually predicted that Scarlets would eventually overtake Ospreys, because (1) they have an easier set of final fixtures, (2) they have fewer injuries and the second string players are arguably better than their Ospreys counterparts, (3) they can rest more players now that they are out of Europe, (4) most crucially, Scarlets' record against the Irish sides in recent seasons has actually been better than that of the Ospreys.
