Thought the atmosphere was great and it seemed quite busy in the north enclosure although looked less so elsewhere on the TV.
Hopefully crowds will pick up as the season goes on , it is still at an early stage and perhaps the lack of coverage on BBC Wales due to the new TV deal has slowed down the appeal to more casual fans?
Confident crowds will pick up on the back of such great performances.

I think walkups could be seriously put off by the 'at gate/online' prices?  

Just looked on the online ticket office at the walk up prices for this weeks game against Benetton.

For my family of 2 adults and 2 juniors it would work out at £46 (cheapest option).

That for me if I would need to pay at the gate would be acceptable as a 1 off treat but not realistic to attend regularly with the family at that price as it wouldn't be affordable. 

i know people will say 'buy season tickets' as they make it far more affordable but new fans aren't going to go out and pay for season tickets without knowing what they'll get for their money??  Again I know people will say you'll see the one of the best teams in Europe full of international stars but is that enough in these cash starved days for families to warrant £46 for 80 - 90 minutes of entertainment in Llanelli??

There's always a budget, and that's a given for everyone.

But if you can find a elite sporting event in Wales for a family of 4 for less than 46 pounds then please do let me know...

It would also be great to take full advantage of the barn for the kids so come up a couple of hours earlier...

To me it's far and away the best value for money sporting event/fixture I know of in the area .. regardless of the whether you have a season ticket or not...superb.

For a family of 4, Cardiff Ice hockey this weekend starts at 60 quid, Swansea City ( arguably no longer elite!) starts at 90, Cardiff City higher again.

This is not meant to belittle your budget at all, it is what it is, just not sure if you're going to find better vfm.

seriously...

have you been following the scarlets over the last 2 seasons? a brand of rugby that is by far the best in Wales.

Just rang the ticket office about the 46 quid. 

Benetton is a Category B game, had you been able to plan in advance and given 4 weeks notice, then this game could have been available for as little as 36 quid for 2 adults and 2 children. 

Worth remembering I think.

I have got my season ticket so I am fine with attending games, so yes I have been following the Scarlets for the last 2 seasons and many more before that Salmidach.  I appreciate the rugby we are currently playing and as a result am more than happy to part with my money to watch and support them the best that I can although that wasn't the point I was trying to make.

It was a thought that the walk up price may not be attractive to 'newbies' who maybe don't appreciate what they would get for the admission prices.

Don't even get me started on the ticket prices to take the family to watch Wales games!  That is on ridiculously different level again!!

i realise that season tickets to support the Scarlets are cheap as compared to the Gallagher Premiership but we as season ticket holders realise that but again'Newbies' may not?

People need to do the maths Munt. This season I get 14 home matches, and my season cost me 245, so that works out at 17.50 per match. Very good value I believe.

To compare:

A single adult terrace ticket for home games in Connacht these days is £29.
