It appears that guys like WGJ, Morgan Jones & Rhys Patchell just aren't selected. Rawlins still out leads me to think he will follow Cubby into retirement.

We have a very strong team, that’s very pessimistic of you and I hope to come back to that comment tomorrow.
I hope you are correct but on paper the Ospreys are definitely stronger.
I’m struggling to see apart from speed in the back row where they are stronger. We more than match their front row, second row I would say we are stronger. Our front five will be quicker around the park no doubt.
We have the better ball carriers upfront for probably the first time ever against them. 
I would put the backs on a par, with us having more pace in the back three. 



Yet you predict an Ospreys win Why.  You can change your predictions of course up until kick off. Perhaps with both of us taking the Ospreys we can both take pleasure in eating humble pie on Sunday.

Not in the match squad or listed as unavailable.

News on WGJ is....turns out he's not very good! Other than that, I think that is a big, tasty mobile pack, front row should scrummage well, Wyn, Josh and Daf off the bench....I'm happy. Foxy at 13 worries me. Should be a good game though. Home advantage, us by one score.

TBH I am not surprised WGJ isn't selected, he has been a bit of a disappointment since he signed. Have seen nothing of his scrummaging power whereas the likes of Sebastian & O'Connor have excelled.

Plus the famous GPR home grown veg.

WGJ might be having a small op, unless I dreamt it.

The missing names on the match day and injured lists may suffer from no checking to make sure no one’s been forgotten. No surprise in a stretched business.

Even though it seems Newcastle trump us for unavailables, I would still wager we are top 3 in europe for consistent levels of unavailability. Going into a fresh season with 14 unavailable is disappointing especially when we have had the longest summer break ever.

While it’s not finance and accounting, it does seem a Kid A kind of task for research and analysis.

It may be annecdotal but i would be astonished if any professional side has the consistent level of injury to senior players that we have - year on year

That is a destructive back 5 I would say the strongest and best ball carrying back 5 we’ve fielded in a long time

I think the starting 15 has a nice balance to it, possibly the most powerful Scarlets pack I've seen in years with 6 genuine ball carriers, 2 powerful props and a pair of livewire halfbacks to make best use of that behind them, and an exciting back 3- I don't rate Giles or North as that great defensively so hopefully there's joy to be had out wide.

I'm also in the minority here in thinking Jon Davies is a good selection, he knows he needs to play well to get to the world cup and he's a big game player- I think he'll turn it up to 11 for this one.   Dan Jones is a very different style to Costelow and I like having that plan B on the bench too.

The Ospreys pack options are formidable. We need to match them and obtain some decent ball. I will take M.M’s “ one point win “ here. Let’s hope it’s a great advert for rugby and we sneak it . 🙏

north and giles are pretty quick in fainess, valid point about our carriers though

Formidable but front five very immobile apart from Smith we must run them around park. Keep it away from tight totally negates Beards, Baldwin, AWJ and Francis game. 
Granted their back row lively but our second rows along with front row are very good around park.
