They are all employed by the same organisation. The IRFU own the 4 x provinces. The IRFU pay the players. The IRFU pay the Irish officials.

Still, some will tell us to shut up and get on with it as per usual.

The league doesn't do itself any favours when this happens. Yes, you want to believe that the officials will be scrupulously fair in their decision making but, on the other hand, there's always that tiny doubt from me that it is in their employer's interest to get as many teams getting a home play-off tie as possible.

Hope they play it fair.


 
I saw the full official list for the weekend elsewhere, they are flying in two SA refs for matches in Wales this weekend, couldn't one of those swapped with the ref for our game?

Anyone got a spare day they’re not doing anything to do a list of games, the refs, and the results from this season and last.

As expected, only Cubby and Elias released. Really could have done with Wyn back at least but not to be.

We need to win this. Huge game for us. I bet the players are eager to put last week's performance behind them and bounce back.

Will John Barclay be back for this game?

I am relaxed, with Leinster losing last weekend also it nullified the full effect of our loss in in Treviso.

Not expecting us to win, but as long as we are within 4 by the time Ulster and Leinter come to the Parc, then i will be happy.

One good point is we normally have a good reaction after any poor performances under these coaches.

Biggest disappointment was not picking up a bp in treviso. We need a performance and any sort of points in dublin.
Edinburgh and ulster have quite similar run ins so maybe hoping for a edinburgh win with no bps.

It’s just a case of which team reacts best to an unexpected loss last weekend. Leinster players looked shocked at the final whistle in Edinburgh but I’m sure that they too will be determined to get back to winning ways, just like us. I’m a little concerned that we have only had 2 players released from camp WRU, and expect the IRU to release more than that to Leinster as they seem to put a greater emphasis on their provinces doing well.

Would have thought Wyn would also have been released but I suppose we have to be grateful Cubby and Ryan are available for us!

Wyn jones has played 60 mins of very intense rugby over the last 2 weeks. I think he is a valuable player coming off the bench for wales and im sure they would not want to risk him getting injured. after nicky smith who do wales have ? I completely understand not releasing props unless they have to.

That last part is a good point.

Thought we were well in with a chance of topping our conference particularly after the Edinburgh win but we blew that on Sunday. We really must now aim for 2nd minimum so we get a home play off quarter. With Leinster's run in top will be beyond us. Home quarter against Cheetahs is probable. All of that, of course, depends on us proving that last Sunday was a blip.

From a financial point of view, a home quarter final playoff spot (for 2nd place) would mean an extra home game which isn’t part of the season ticket. This would mean another bumper pay day for the club and may be the difference between signing another play or two.

Here's Wayne's interview about Benneton and the way forward:

The Scarlets’ Guinness PRO14 challenge continues in Dublin on Saturday where they take on Conference B table-toppers Leinster.

Pivac’s side will be desperate to bounce back from their sub-par display in Treviso last weekend when they were well beaten, 22-12, by Benetton.

“We have had a good talk about where we are as a group,” said the New Zealander.

“We are a little bit different from where we were this time last season because we had the likes of Aaron Shingler and Hadleigh Parkes and some senior players who ran the forwards and backs. We are a lot younger in terms of leadership.

“It has been rammed into them after last weekend’s performance that we can’t just take the field and expect to win.

“It takes a lot of work to churn out these results.”

Wise words which really make me wonder what has happened with Emyr, a natural born leader. It doesn't bode well.

You can't turn followers into leaders in a week. If they are leaders now they are unlikely ever to be leaders. We are doomed in Dublin 🤕
