Chuffed that Fardy is on the bench

we are here again...nervous as last year...best team possible and happy for Rawlins selection.. Have to play a perfect defensive game as did Paris in CC final, we havent their phisical presence, but can be speeder then them to occupy the field the close all their attacking options, also the importance of the first tackle in contact zone close the breakdown...come on Scarlets, make we champions again

I know it’s easier said than done, but we have to challenge them at the 10 and 12 channel, as Sexton may not be 100% fit and Nacawa is not a centre.
Our second row selection seens to suggest a more up in your face defensive line, but Tadgh selection at 8 has probably been forced upon us due to injuries.
Prydie is unlucky to miss out but McNicholl, halfpenny and Steff is a very useful back 3.

Two strong teams there. Head says Leinster heart says Scarlets. I hope the coaches have learnt from the semis.

Yes Henshaw is a huge miss for them & as magnificent a player as Sexton is he always seems to be close to breaking down through injury - a price he has had to pay for his desire to play so close to the gainline. Fardy on the bench is a surprise. If & its a big if our forwards get parity & we patrol the gainline well then our 9-13 will do some damage allowing an excellent back 3 to thrive.

Thats a dangerous looking back line. Got to start well , no switching off at re-starts, make a statement early on we wont be bullied in contact, we have to counter them holding on to players at ruck time too, way after the ball has gone out

That's the best 15/23 available, IMO... they gave us a lesson last time, and in order to win we need to:

1. solve the breakdown problem - last time, they cleared out our jackals very effectively (and at times illegally, but the ref gave us nothing) - so, unless this ref is more inclined to quickly penalise players holding on to the ball (as opposed to allowing the cavalry to remove our jackal) and to penalise players for taking our guys out well beyond the ruck, we need to decide either to commit more bodies to the breakdown to either win the ball or at least slow it down, or not contest at all and spread out to tackle.
Whatever we do, far more aggression is needed in the contact area.

2. Get after Sexton - Rawlins gave him a hard time last year, and he and others need to spot blitz Sexton whenever there is half a chance of tackling him either in possession or just as he gets rid of the ball. Stop Sexton, and the job is half done - but he's world class and it won't be easy.

After the RCC semi, I would not have bet anything on a Scarlets win tomorrow - but we've played a bit better since, and they weren't that impressive v Munster. There is no question they will start as strong favourites - rightly so - but if we give it our best shot, we can win this.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Comparing player-player we do ok in all positions but lock, where they have a clear advantage.
Scarlets before Wales
