Damn, I thought this match was tomorrow. I was going to go and watch. The bank holiday has thrown my internal calendar into disarray. It caused me to miss the bin collection today too. 

Sounds like it was a cracking second half.

Very good competitive game. Surprised not to see many faces I knew but it was largely families I think . Good to see President Derek Quinnell wandering around . 

This squad looks very good and taking the Ospreys scalp was especially satisfying ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘

Ha ha - thanks Steve! Thankfully the local mozzies are not as bad as your French ones but everyone was scratching tonight and a lot of Scarlets and Ospreys blood being exchanged by these blighters - and you never know,being blood brothers may help with a future merger ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ฑ

U18s complete stunning comeback to continue winning ways

Scarlets U18s produced a stunning second-half comeback to beat Ospreys 33-17 and complete their series of summer friendlies unbeaten.

After trailing 17-0 at the interval in front of a big crowd at the Parc y Scarlets training field, the home side ran in five unanswered tries to romp to victory, adding the Ospreys to the scalps of Saracens, Dragons and Cardiff over the last few weeks.

Whatever was said in the half-time huddle certainly worked as Scarlets looked a different outfit to the one that had been second best for the majority of the opening period.

The home side had started brightly enough, but failed to take advantage of early pressure and it was the Ospreys who took a grip on the game, making the most of a home sin-binning to cross for tries through wing Evan Morris, impressive full-back Lewis Edwards and prop Dylan James.

The second half, though, was very much a different story.

With replacement back-rower Keanu Evans providing the spark up front and pacy substitute Callum Woolley the cutting edge behind, Scarlets began to carve out chances and the comeback was started when replacement centre Owen Griffith crossed 13 minutes after the restart.

Keanu Evans powered over from a close-range line-out drive for his sideโ€™s second โ€“ converted by fly-half Steffan Jac Jones โ€“ and from then on, the final 10 minutes were dominated by the home team.

The Ospreys were guilty of giving away a string of penalties and losing a player to the sin bin in the closing exchanges and the pressure that followed led to wing Alfie Rodda-Lodder diving over in the corner with five minutes remaining. Jones held his nerve to nail a brilliant touchline conversion to put his side ahead for the first time.

It got better quickly with two more tries scored in the final three minutes from wing Iori Badham and full-back Elis Payne, who finished off a superbly-executed move close to the Ospreys line.

Jones converted both to complete a remarkable turnaround for the West Walians.

Scarlets U18s โ€“ Tries: O. Griffith, K. Evans, A. Rodda-Lodder, I. Badham, E. Payne. Cons: S. Jones (4)

Ospreys U18s โ€“ Tries: E. Morris, L. Edwards, D. James. Con: E. Jones

Great to have enough cool-heads and composure to score those 3 late tries. The results have been a lovely boost to the summer.

I think that these are โ€˜friendliesโ€™. S4C usually stream the U18s colleges league and U18 RAG league when it starts in January.

100% win including Saracenโ€™s. Good squad and coaching has changed hugely with Scott Sneddon being very hands on. There are some injuries and boys on holidays who will enhance the squad by the time the RAG starts. No TV coverage as these are pre season matches but College rugby is every Wednesday when season starts and then January for RAG season last year one game before Christmas

Haha! Just catching up with this thread from France following a 17h journey yesterday... brain not in top shape after that...

When I read your opening, in my befuddled state I thought for a second that 'mozzies' was a new slang word for Os supporters, until I read that they 'feasted on (your) legs', when visions of Cannibal Holocaust started... then I woke up and caught on.

Now to sort out the TV before the RWC starts... blasted broadcasters have stopped sending a SD signal so will have to invest in a new HD decoder...

Good wins by the youngsters - again.Smile

  After a pretty poor  first half  ,aside of the first 10 minutes. What  a fantastic second  ๐Ÿ‘  by this excellent group of players . The substitutions certainly made a massive impact!

    Some things to take from our nosy neighbours from across the bridge .
   1, Black shirts ,no team emblem .
   2, Ospreys players and coaches very chirpy , for the first 50 minutes.  
   3, Very quiet for the last Quarter has Scarlets run in there tries . 
   4, Great to see one of the Scarlets outstanding youngsters ribbing the Ospreys  coaches , when the tries were getting run in .

. The big guy coaching was particularly gobby but as you say he went all shy in the last quarter! ๐Ÿ˜‚

The Ospreys defended very well first half and their 12/13/15 were effective playing a pretty direct game and they even blew a few chances in building their lead, not sure whether it was the Scarlets or Ospreys changes at ht (or a bit of both) that made the difference but they really struggled with the Scarlets footwork and fitness second half.

Off the bench Callum Wollie looked sharp and hungry and Keanu Evans was very good.

Not sure if the ref has a word with 1 or 2 of the Ospreys players but first half some of the verbals were a bit excessive, I haven't got any issue with a little bit of confidence but one of their players was pretty much doing a commentary job on how the Scarlets were going to mess everything up, not of fan and refs need to stamp it out.
