If you build it, they will come.

True - but wasn't all this a result of some weird fixture fiasco, so that both teams were 'officially' first teams, whatever their respective strengths?

I'm sure someone out there knows the full story...

Newport refused to rearrange the fixture, Delme Thomas came out of retirement to play his last game for Llanelli.

ADZ-GWS ...... Obviously someone who rarely, if ever attended games in the glorious "amateur" days gone by ......
 
From the "SCARLETS" website ....
 
 

Llanelli is one of the most famous rugby clubs in the world. 

The Scarlets celebrated our centenary in 1972, although there is doubt as to whether the club was actually formed 100 years before. The first recorded game occurred in 1876 at Peoples Park, and the home side played in blue.

The famous Scarlets shirt was worn for the first time in 1884 against an Irish XV, who had stopped off in Llanelli having played Wales in Cardiff a few days earlier. It has been worn ever since giving us our nickname "The Scarlets".

Llanelli first came to prominence when we were victorious over an Australian touring side in 1908, and ever since we have gone on to lower the colours of many international sides including the mighty All Blacks in 1972, and the world champions Australia in 1992.

But it's not just famous victories that have made us the great club we are.

Llanelli has produced an almost endless list of talented and world renowned players, from Albert Jenkins in the early 1900s to legends including Ken Jones, Delme Thomas, Phil Bennett, Derek Quinnell, Ray Gravell and, in more recent times, Ieuan Evans and Scott Quinnell.  In total 169 Wales internationals and 21 British Lions, as well as Lions coaches including the legendary Carwyn James (New Zealand 1971) have been bred at Llanelli.

Llanelli were the undisputed Cup Kings of Wales having lifted the Welsh Cup 12 times in 17 final apperances.

In the 1992-93 season the club won the Best Team In Britain Trophy after achieving the unique treble of winning the league, the cup, and defeating world champions Australia.

It is a remarkable story of success in the world of sport.

Herman Tours ... Still the best way to travel !
