Its a big game for Tyler, pretty much his first start for us and a chance to really lay a marker down against a high quality back division. He's got the quality, just has to do it in a Scarlet jersey.

Strong side for us...Hughes- Morgan are a solid defensive couple. A natural pression over Morgan for fans aspectatives...he is class and how watched in last test matches, he can compete for 13 shirt.
Right decision about Conbeer e Morgan, they deserve to be selected .
A very hard match against a solid team, hope in a good refering

Forwards as expected... I'm a little surprised that Steff H and Tyler have been preferred to Asquith and Foxy, but in truth Foxy is still feeling his way back to match fitness... I also expected McNicholl on the wing, but he's out, so Conbeer definitely deserves his chance.

It should be a good contest.

We are going to be exposed for speed and size in our back 3 thats for sure. Time for Ryan Conbeer to show he has learnt defensively since being exposed by Duhan van der Merwe last season. Our best chance here is going to be to get after their 9/10 axis with Cawdor making a nuisance of himself like only Cawdor can do.

I see what you mean but I think the Scarlets back three can cause Bath’s a lot of problems as well. While their wings are very dangerous in attack the least said about their positioning and ability under the high ball the better 
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

if we kick to them we better kick and chase well, otherwise they will run all over us
 
Those wingers are a right handful and Watson is a top class player with ball in hand

  The Sarries 9 on loan, took over the kicking Spencer and did not miss a kick .
  The Bath wings are good going forward, not sure about there defence though.
   Conbeer and Steff Evans, are as much of a threat .

   Come on SCARLETS!!! A little worried about our  lack of attacking threats in midfield ,and I would have gone for a 6-2 split on the bench. I notice Bath have, as I said they will aim to dominate up front.

Bath obviously fancy their chances of dominating us up front.

It will be a tough game.

I would have chosen dinky for a defensive game in poor conditions. We may well get the conditions but with our backs selection, I doubt whether we're going to do anything other than try to spread the ball wide.

The Scarlets front five is stronger than theirs. Samson gave Obano a hiding a couple of years back. Biggest worry is coping with Underhill and Faletau and a lack of creativity at 10-12-13.

I think we can match them up front its the pace behind I am concerned about. By the way 157 Ben Spencer apparently isn't on loan from Sarries. He signed a long term deal which led to Aled replacing him at Sarries.

Agrree with you re.the pack GPR,although I think both Elias and Lousi need to have big games(had Davies not been injured I would have liked to see him start,and Lousi needs to justify selection).10 and 12 too static for me,but best of luck to the boys today.
