 Two competitive games no tries, a huge worry .

  The absence of Cassiem and Tex in selection ,is mind boggling...Aside of Elias ,bench made little impact.

i'm hoping there's no issue between cassiem and delaney as he was our best player last year,when are we going to learn to close games out?if munster were only 1 point ahead they would have shut us out no problem.

Credit where credit is due Halfpenny was exceptional. His back must hurt from carrying this team.

Didn’t see the game, so this opinion is based on previous performances. Steff Hughes isn’t up to the top level of the games. He’s a great grafter and always a solid performer, but nothing else. He offers very little in attack and rarely has a try assist. Jonny Williams is clearly our first choice 12, then we have to go to Asquith as a second choice 12. Just my opinion. 
Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)

Attack area at the moment I think is the area of the team where there is a "work in progress". Last year Mooar surely tried on offensive aspect and Delaney on defence.
From this season Whiffin is the head specialist and give him the time to work...
My two cents on now Scarlets attack, I dont understand very well our structure attack, a 3 - 3 - 2, but first pod work ever for speed up the game and then play for backs. They play often with same number players in defence and have to invent something for make the break..
I would like to see more mixed line crossed of forward on the field and a second playmaker to help the flyhalf..maybe the 12, J Williams

Think everyone should read what Dic has been saying for the past few months. We don't select pace at 10/12 and our gameplan since Delaney has taken control is very conservative. That works when sides like Munster commit harry carry and given you 30 points but when you still lose what the f...

Our attacking play is dire - our forwards are totally pathetic in driving lineouts. Exeter would have scored two tries at least today with our positions. Our coaching ticket have lost the plot and we are badly led. Recipe for disaster.

No, he meant Harry Carry, the young scrum half from Cork. He's worth 30 points every game. Smile

Not scoring a try is a concern, but we were in full control of that game until the last quarter and being 10 points ahead, we seemed to be on the way to victory in what had been a tight contest. No need to panic in my opinion. 
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

We are obsessed with kicking the ball away. Cawdor kicking has been good but we need to play more ball in hAnd. Also need to sort out a driving maul in our line out especially when oppositon down to 14 men

 😂 He would come from Cork 😂 I really thought we were building up nicely for a try as we pulled ahead to finish off the game but then with the sending off and subs coming on we just deteriorated and lost control. I think to actually then go on to lose as we did when Cubby fell on their player did cause a lot of frustration and red mist from us all. When Ken goes off there doesn’t seem a back up leader in the pack since Barclay left.

Mark's first post in this thread really hits the nail on the head. If we had been able to score just one try in each of the last 2 competitive games we would likely have won them both. The most worrying thing is that we don't even look like like we can score them and have a "kick the penalty" mentality. We need to do some serious work on looking how we can unlock defenses using the player resource we have.
