So we are 3 weeks into the new season and Munster are fielding pretty much a 2nd team. I can see the logic given the new Euro qualification rules, but surely this is to the detriment of the URC?
Thoughts??

Surprised that Munster have not selected Beirne or Murray along with Carbury etc. Certainly not their first team. Get our performance right & we can win this one. Welcome to the Scarlet Lloyd - go well.

2nd side, I think you might mean some different players.
Teams like Munster can afford to give the whole squad game time in the first month of the season, with the expectation of similar outcomes.

Hats off to them.

Not bothered as long as we win and hopefully a bonus point as well. We are clearly thin at 8 as we keep on playing Sione for 80 minutes and also at 7 where Dan plays yet again. Likewise locks where Shings possibly has to play as there’s no one else, despite him being 50 -50 ish earlier in the week. The fact that Lloyd starts on Sunday is further evidence of this problem. 
And it’s only 3 games into the season 😱 I hope Ashley shines for obvious reasons- fresh chance for him as well!

7 changes by us, 11 by Munster from last week's 23.

Saying this is a Munster 2nd team is off the mark.

Certainly not Munster's strongest squad, but they are no mugs and I'd hate for the Scarlets to go into this complacent. 

Good to see a few first teamers back for us, and welcome to Ashley... subs interesting as no back 3 cover for a change... presumably, Rogers would play 15 if needed, with someone else playing on the wing... Scott probably, or Johnny Williams. 

Our front row subs look especially powerful, and could make the difference if brought on around the 50-55 min mark.

No judgments here, but I feel a bit better about our chances than I did this morning. 
We're still still here!

I’m a bit surprised that Lloyd Ashley has gone straight into the team. Is Morgan Jones carrying a bump? I would’ve expected the player who is familiar with our lineout, maul etc to be starting with the newbie on the bench.

I like our starting XV and the bench is pretty strong as well. Fancy us for this one as long as we don't have a repeat of last season where we wiped the floor with Munster for 60 minutes and then totally caved in.

I thought Jones looked good last season. He seems to have slipped down the pecking order lately.

Some comments from the lovely lads on the Munster forum:

Quote Barely an A side. Could be a long night.

Quote I hope I’m wrong obviously, but it could be a long afternoon. That’s not even a second 15 in most positions. I’d take a losing bonus point if it was on offer.

Quote That side is liable to be hammered, they've cotton wooled our strongest 23.

Quote Not happy with that selection. Doing our best to throw away league points

Quote Disappointed with that selection, I was hoping to see more of a mix between younger players and experienced players both in this game plus the Connacht game. I get rotation has to happen as does development, but seems too black / white. Scarlets went from +2 to -5 in the handicap beating.

Quote Jaysus, I've just now seen the team. I'm no longer looking forward to Sunday.

Quote Terrible selection. The squad is big enough to rotate while not really weakening it
