It was nice to see that the introduction of Homer and Costelow, in particular, really livened up our back play, and presented the Dragons with new problems that they hadn't been coached to prevent. This is not to take away from all the other young players who made positive contributions in the limited time they had on the pitch. Same goes for Prydie (who I'm afraid to admit that I'd almost forgotten about) Rob,Sebastian and Brew.
The only real negatives were our still sub-standard lineout and our "ability" to lose possession in good attacking positions through minor infringements and fumbles.
Today, for once, we actually seemed to gain more from the ref's decisions.
Oh, If only we'd had even a zero gain impact from Murphy and his
assistants" on the weekend.
Still there's no use crying over spilt beer so let's just make sure we give them less excuse for penalising us in future.

Btw, any comparison between Louis Carbonel, the small, young, 10 for Toulon and Sam Costelow?

Deft feet, good kicking, small in stature but courageous in defence.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

How was the 1400 Zoom meeting?
Went quite well thanks Steve. I kept my bottle of Stella just below the desk though. Smile

Very crafty. I see you've been down this route already. Smile

  Good workout and a lot of positives. It was nice to us looking to play the Scarlets way , with pace and tempo and players suited to that style .

More positives than negatives. Some sharpness shown by the backs at last. That should build some confidence in the squad. An enjoyable affair for Scarlets fans, not so much for the Dragons but well done both clubs for getting it streamed.
What's going on?

We see a Carwyn Tuipolotu stepping off the bus before a game and I can just hear my old Uni coach saying to me and the other back rowers...'right lads, remember now... always go low ok?'
...and all of us thinking, oh aye, no problem, right in to the spokes...you must be joking ..no chance bud...

Guy looks a right specimen.

Looks a good value addition fixture.

Brew pace is interesting. In the 2011 RWC squad he, Scott, Halfpenny and North were the paciest. Time catches up with everyone I guess.

Although on the meet the coaches Crys event they did say Brew has only been in training for 10 days.

So he might be blowing a few cobwebs off the hammies there, much like myself when in my pomp. Took me a few weeks to be back to 'rapid'.

Boy, when I think back if I could have only harnessed that pace with basic ability, a rugby brain, directional sense, a restrained response to being tackled and a gaping shortfall in my kicking and passing game, I'd have made it I tell ya.

Which games would you want streamed?
I was thinking about games just like this one - teams made up of players just below the radar who never seem to get much rugby (granted there were quite a few first team players on show today). Not sure how feasible that is.

Havenโ€™t seen the game yet but it seems encouraging from the posts on here. Clearly no need to get especially excited as it was only an A team game against a Dragons squad that lacks strength in depth. The misfiring at the lineout is beginning to worry me, letโ€™s hope that the coaching team will have a solution by next week. Otherwise a similar performance and result in Treviso next week is the most important thing that can come out of this game.

I had my doubts but Brew looks quite good also

He's looked sharp

He has spilled the ball a couple of times, but he seems hungry for the ball and keen to get involved
Really lacks pace though

Give him a couple of games to get up to speed.

Since when can you learn to be fast?

Yes he's lost some of that pace. Conbeer would have been over from that move in my opinion. Our back 3 choices for Benetton, with Prydie really putting his hand up for a FB start today, should be Prydie at FB, Steff on one wing & Conbeer or Tom Rogers on the other. I would start either AOB or Costellow in Benetton unless a deluge is forecast. If top of the ground running conditions play both in the 23. Homer will push very hard for the starting jersey after today. 

Indeed,Homer certainly caught the eye.Great to see the boys play a bit...enjoyed that a lot.
