couldn't get to the game myself tonight but I'm assuming this is the final score, very dissapointing if it is, that's the double they have done over us this season.

Total crap.

Haven't seen our forwards out-played like that this season, backs got little ball due to poor performance by the forwards.

Handling was just damn awful. It was like watching my 10 year old play. You expect them to drop the ball a few times when they play rugby, but not these boys, the ones that are one step from full professionals.

What was worse, in my opinion, was the attitude of some of our "supporters". I know the ref wasn't the best, but was there need for one person to constantly hurl what could be classed as abuse towards him?? There were young children at the game, and as ambassadors to the club, it's not the sort of thing that needs broadcasting. We've had masses of bad press over the last few months, we don't need more, do we? I felt that making these jibes against the ref was un-necesary, and whoever was doing this, as loud as he was doing it, needs to sort themselves out. I'm all for giving my vocal support to the players, but when it comes to ***ging off professionals and semi professionals alike, I tow the line, unless I can do a better job, and since I do not have the required refereeing qualifications, I assume that I cannot do a better job, so I leave it at that.

our front five were munched! the ball the halfbacks rceived was very poor nine times out of ten therefore they could do nothing with it. very dissapointing but you cant win them all.   llanelli rfc have done us proud all season, and i'm certainly not going to start slating them after one poor performance.
The stadium may change, but the dream will remain the same!

Well said redeyes, there a far to many here that just can't can't cope with the odd loss. Remember people, it's a game you cannot win them all.

I agree RE!

I think people who are not happy with the Scarlets season are placing too much hope on the semi pros. The obvious disappointment of no trophies this season (let's be honest!) has transfered hopes to the semi pro division, To expect the same amount of success for the semi pros is unfeasible given the difference in competitions and standards. Obviously I hope the semi pro side does well, but I feel the title is slightly beyond them this year. Let's be honest, who thought they'd be challenging on two fronts after last season? well done llanelli RFC this season, not winning a trophy will not be classed as a disappointment, this season has been a huge success in it's own way.

Was there a good crowd there by the way? as a part time supporter myself I didn't go.

Fully agree but thats still no excuse for p*ss poor play. We beat ourselves and thats hard to take as on paper the jacks had no right to the win but we seemed to just expect to win if we turned up. Sadly, the game's now over as I can't see Neath dropping silly points like we have

Front row was dreadful and Aled's throwing was very poor - doesnt look good for the rest of the season when 2 out of 3 hookers can't hit their men.......
