Lezana not listed in the 17 not available.  Has he gone?
Interesting number, 23 playing, 17 missing = next season squad,  no marginCry

I think majority of this 23 will be with us next season other than Kalamafoni and Javan all ready confirmed as leaving.

A good selection that garantees balance and good play...gutted Ed is out, but at least I prefer to see a complete recover of JW..
Their selection is so dangerous...

Maybe he just hasn't been selected, Eddie James hasn't been listed as not available too.

I like Ioan, but he isn’t a 12. Would like to see Eddie there going forward (metaphorically and literally!)

On the whole a good side but I'm a little worried that with Fifita in the second row we are somewhat lightweight and will have even more problems than usual defending our line from Munster mauls. WE must keep them running backward and as far away from our 22 as possible.

Reasonably happy with that side, but would definitely have retained Morgan Jones in the second row and Fifita at 6. Shame Eddie James misses out, but can appreciate the fairness/equality in selection in sticking with Ioan after a good run of results.

That's my point he has had 1 start off the bench which was impressive and i would assume Johnny is 1 of our bigger earners.

Johnny Williams is a better player than Eddie James at the moment so it’s understandable he’s taken his place this week.

Decent side - as so often, I don't know much about the other team except that you don't get easy games in Munster. So, not quite optimistic but not defeatist either - if the boys play to their potential, maybe they can get a result.

Looking forward to this - slight misgivings about Fifita playing lock away to Munster but nevertheless, hoping the bois can do the shirt credit out there. Ymlaen Ysgarleds!

Good to see Mcloud back. 
Looking ahead in the post Ken Foxy era,  he could  be one of the most experienced  players. His leadership  skills,  yet unknown,  and like many things probably,  he can develop.  Talking to, and building  rapport  with referees alone, is a skill.
Hoping he will do well.
Also good to see Jonny W back and Rogers  back.

Munster is a tough place to go, as Ospreys  found. 
Hopefully,  the pressure  they apply,  will not result  in poor discipline from us. They are so clinical,  particularly  in the Red zone, and consequently  we need to be as good as we have been recently. 
At the same same time  hoping  to see the same confidence,  and creativity,  which has been behind the recent upturn Iin Scarlets  fortunes.

Win or lose,  hoping for a good performance,  to maintain our momentum.
