Unbelievable, the whole Scarlets team where at not even half pace and Morgan Allen saying there was no excuse and it was lacking effort, I think he needs to look at his own effort as he didn't seem to be busting a gut in that clip!!

There is some merit in playing an A league so that sides get regular games together and perhaps accelerate the development of young players and also players returning from injury could build up their match fitness. I know that the Irish Provinces do play each other on a random basis without published fixture list.
Yes. They do on occaissions include Club players from the All Ireland League within their squads which has mixed reaction from the clubs. All academy players are allocated to AIL clubs and paid by the provinces but clubs complain of being deprived of these players when the provinces don't release the to play. The Irrish teams appear to be more organised than those in Wales but still are not a regular weekly side like Ealing playing in theChampionship.
The. Dates of quarter finals favoured the. Championship sides as they have no demand forUnder 20 & Senior International squads. A rearranged Pro 12 on Saturday night, plus a still sizeable injury lst of course. Further handicap
Ed Ulster, especially as we needed to secure. A place in the Top Four

Perhaps there should be some sort of A competition between you and us. We seem to have the same sort of structure and the same sort of tensions within that structure.

 Our tackling or lack of it was shocking,and Ealing attacked every lineout we threw into,they were an excellent well coached team who play together week in week out .
 
         Ealing are 4th in the English 1st Division,we turned up as a Regional outfit shone of 34 players,still no excuse for such a  tame effort in a quarter final of a cup competition.

How was the Premiership Select XV shorn of 34 players? Who?

I guess 34 players who are members of the Scarlets squad but not selected for this competition.
 
Against Richmond at home we had Tom Price, Tadgh, Emyr, Pete, Aled Davies - much stronger in key areas.
 
Even looking at the fringe players, Corey Baldwin and Ryan Conbeer with Wales U20's for example.

The B and I is a competition for Premiership Select players and not a 'first team' Scarlets competition therefore to say that 34 players were unavailable is nonsensical. The stark fact is that an 84 point defeat by players who are being paid to perform is completely unacceptable as has been said already.

 No dispute with regards been an A team competition,and probably a dozen of those would not be considered in this tournament,unless recovering from injury,the point I was making we cannot compete with a top 1st English team,been so depleted.
 
  No excuse for such a shocking and abject performance though.
