I’m looking forward to seeing Ioan Lloyd have a runout at 10. 

Harry Wilson is a quality 8 for the Barbarians. He’s a very powerful carrier. Daugunu is a dangerous runner in their backline.

I am not sure how often Llanelli/Scarlets have played the Barbarians, but I do recall seeing them once in or around 1965/66 when Barry John was just starting out on his career. For a half, he made mugs of the Baa-Baas and iirc Llanelli led at half time. Second half, the word must have gone out to what was probably an all-international test back row to mark the out-half and forget the rest! English wing-forward Taylor and the rest tightened up considerably, ant the Baa-Baas won in the end.

That's an intresting  one Aber, but there will probably  be someone on SF,  to give an answer.
Personally,  I cannot  remember  too many fixtures. 

Its a wonderful way to remember Benny, who played with such verve & exuberance  for both teams. He would very happy .
Looking forward to the game.  Not expecting  too much, early doors in season, but will prove a useful run out, and hopefully can enjoyable  spectacle for all

Thanks to the wonders of Google, I can now confirm that the game was played on 2nd November 1965, and as I thought England flanker Bob Taylor was involved. The Barbarians won 28-15.

I am sure I saw the Barbarians play Llanelli at Stradey in the early 70s as well. So maybe two previous games.

They played them in the 1972-3 centenary season, an evening game, won handily, I think we scored 30 pts.  Dai Morris played for the Baabaas after a full day shift at work.  Mike Burton was on hand also.

In the end a satisfactory  result for an early  season game.
The Barbarians  had allready convincingly  beaten  Northampton  and Bristol.
They tackled ferociously,  were full of niggle so this was no classic 
Barbarians  type game,  which would not have served us well, in term in terms of pre season prep. 

Scarlets  controlled  possession  and territory  well, in the second half,
but we're not able to turn that dominance  in to points.
The forwards tried repeatedly  to drive over the line   but were repelled by stubborn Barbarians  defence. 
It took a great interception and turn of pace from Eddie James to seal the win .

What concerned me, and most others  at Parc, was the apalling line out , which malfunctioned all game. 
Shaun Evans, wonderful  around the field,  but struggles to throw long , which we continued to to, and failed to execute.
If somthing  is not working,  why continue to compound the frustration with yet more inaccuracy. 
Of the top ball , is the best attacking  weapon,  but the major prerequisite,  is to actually win the ball.
Our new South  African coach has a lot of work to do, together with the scrum  which although OK, was creaky at times.

We should not undestimate the quality of the opposition  , littered with quality Aussies  , and therefore quite a few would have known each other, if not played regularly. 
In that context we can be happy with win with some decent performance,  even though there remains plenty to work on.

How many yellows did the BaaBaas have? Was it 3 or 4?
