Agree, can't see the point of the current two competitions.

It seems the tone has changed over the last two years - everyone had an opinion how it should be run but there was an overwhelming majority saying it was a good development pathway.  That result was extremely discouraging but sometimes these things happen. A different day a different result. Even though performance was poor on the day,  remember it’s it also an opportunity for players in the premiership to play representative rugby.

We were very depleted.  Most of those having any sort of game time against Leinster and Munster were given a well deserved rest. Those players involved in the Welsh and Scottish squads were likewise unavailable as were the 4 involved with the U20 squads and Patch and Bulbring recovering from injuries. However even allowing for these omissions this was a pathetic effort and a shameful result. Earlier in the season I had watched Scarlets "Reserves" beat Bath and Scarlets A beat Leinster A well in hard fought matches.
Fortunately I didn't see this match, and I haven't yet heard any convincing explanation of how we managed to lose and concede 84 points. There must have been players who weren't trying and unless they can prove otherwise in the remainder of the season we can only hope that their contracts are up for renewal and that we have seen the last of them, as they were either not playing for Scarlets or are useless and don't deserve to stay.

According to Morgan Allen (captain) in today's WM, "... the boys need to take a long hard look at themselves... there's no excuse... it was a lack of effort, and effort doesn't take skill". Allen clearly not impressed with the attitude of some players, then.

Some of the defence was as bad as I have ever seen. Maybe they were updating their Facebook statuses before the game had ended !! It was a long trip for that outcome.

Watching Wales' defence on Friday and then ours on the Saturday - you couldn't get much more opposite!

Just watched that. 

Can we please end this and go back to Llanelli Rugby Football Club please?

I have very little affiliation with this plastic entity anymore.

Sorry, but its true.

From those "highlights" I would guess that some of them had been out on the p*ss Friday night celebrating Wales' victory.
