Good luck to Ammanford in the cup tomorrow 

Ammanford 35 Newbridge 43 Full Time
Ammanford
 played well but they were a much bigger outfit.

Hard luck Ammanford and well done !
What is it about us west wales boys, , outsized by our cousins from the east.Confused
Even when I played youth district rugby, we were up regularly against East Mon....huge packs.
Had to think of ways to combat it.
Newbridge always combative opponents for Llanelli, in times gone by, very physical and never easy .
Been there twice and seen us lose TWICE !

Hope Ammanford build on this now going forward, will give them confidence

I dot mean this in a derogatory way, but probably more English stock being close to the border and the valleys being flooded by English miners back in the day.
Scarlets before Wales

This will be terribly unpopular on here, but I do believe we will end up with an east and west pro region that is totally unattached to a particular club. Our 4 regions are totally imbalanced.

Dragons, utterly useless region but Gwent has most clubs
Scarlets' biggest town is 50k at best
Ospreys picks up Swansea, Neath, Aberavon, Bridgend
Cardiff should sustain itself but doesn't use the valleys well enough

This Elite 8 has to be the feeder teams for the pros and should come from historically important rugby town such as Llanelli, Swansea, Neath, Aberavon for west and Bridgend, Cardiff, Ponty (or Poola) and Newport for east, playing in grounds of 5,000 capacity. There should be a central pot so that no rich men cant fund them.

The ties with Quins have always been closer with Scarlets than the Drovers . Perhaps the influence of the excellent and caring Brian Jones but a lot warmer.

Unfortunately, a combination of injuries and unavailability of players has meant we are unable to fulfil Saturday’s Indigo Premiership fixture against We would like to thank Merthyr and both sets of supporters for their understanding

And we promised a couple of weeks back that all fixtures would be honoured! Let’s face it though we were going to get hammered by Merthyr. What an embarrassment to the town created by the Scarlets as owners. Sad indeed

Premiership going to 13 Clubs next season 

Western mail 

Fewer teams than expected will participate in next season's Premiership after Llanelli's withdrawal from the competition.

The Welsh Rugby Union's original plan was to increase the amount of teams from 12 to 14, but after Llanelli's decision to go into hibernation for a season they have settled on 13.

yeah they would be. And they should be promoted. Why 13 when it was meant to be 14. Welsh rugby rotten from the bottom to the top
