Loving the bonus point or we are sh*thouse commentary that prevails when we go to Italy. A win will do nicely.

Zebre are playing for their pro future, both as individuals and as an entity.

The guys are expecting a real contest tonight..no quarter given.

Yes lets secure the win. We don't have a great record in Italy when it comes to BP's. Going to keep my eyes on the Zebre 8 who has had a glowing reference from Mr Ian.

Its going to be contest. 
We can not take them lightly.
We need to do exactly what we did v Kings, but better. 
We need to be patient. we need to take any chance we get. 
Also, with regards to penalties, what are everyones thoughts on going for goal if in range? versus the kings I am sure we turned down 12 points - one of which we had a try from.

At the time I felt we were disrespecting the kings and it was a poor call, always take your points etc, BUT Barclay must have sniffed a weakness in their maul defence because we kept going after them. We won't do that against stronger packs

Win the game I say. Build a lead, kick everything first half and see where that takes us. As shown in both games last night the final 20 minutes can be fill your boots time. Our fitness levels appear good and we should rely on that.

Just remind the 23 tonight of what happened at Gloucester when you take a game for granted.

Should make them focus on the 80 tonight and nothing beyond.

If the weather forecast had been good, I might have disagreed a tad - since it's our high-tempo, high ball in play style which leads to high scoring wins, as the opposition team tires towards the end - we don't have the carrying game to bully teams by running the ball through them all night. However, the Milan area (I hope that's the right part of Italy!) has predicted thunderstorms and flash floods for this afternoon, so unlikely to be an evening for too many 50:50 offloads. Given that, it makes sense to take any easy points on offer... for difficult kicks, it'll be a judgement call.

Just win the game, Scarlets. A BP would be... a bonus!

Be patient, keep the ball, wear them down and then unleash the backs as Zebre begin to tire.
