I used to be a big fan of Steff Evans but the game has become a lot more physical and competitive, and pretty much every opposition coach is familiar with his defensive frailties as well as his lack of outright pace. Now I find myself looking through the whole of our squad, academy, and our feeder clubs for an alternative, or at least, give an opportunity to, but, so far without success.

They’re still in training, at least I think 2 are. Wing and Flanker 

Diolch. So there's still a possibility we may have another wing and flanker to choose from before long.

let’s hope then for a couple of below the radar signings- but you might also expect them to turn out for the Rfc perhaps by now, if they are good enough to trial for the region? 🤔

Will be a tough game but if we can build on how we played in the second half on Saturday we could win this one.

Think the emerging Ireland issue is a red herring in all honesty (see what I did there). Of the 9 players for me only Doak & Balacoune are what I would consider top 23 players. Ulster will be a formidable team & with their attacking prowess we will get a good idea of how much progress our defence has made. If we start like we did last weekend and play that poorly for 40 minutes the game will be over. 

Play like we did from the start of the 2nd half for 80 minutes, take points when they are on offer, be disciplined and we can certainly win it. However that set of points would see us beat everyone in this league so consistency in performance has to be our aim & that bar was set at last weekend's 2nd half - tempo & attacking intent. 

GPR has nailed it, when he speaks of consistency.
This is something that has bedevilled Scarlets performances in recent years.
No side can be expected to be full and produce peak performances, all of the time.
What we should expect though, is an 80min performance, more regularly, particularly at home.
It's easy to say, but we must cut our errors, and defend well.
There were good signs against the sprays, but this needs to continue.

Ulster are a good side, who generally do the basics well.
They are far more consistent than we are & are also more expansive than they used to be
Belfast is a very hard place to win now, but away from there, they are far from invincible.
It will be a hard game, but if Scarlets play well, we can win!

The fact that Dwayne Peel is so familiar with Ulster's strengths and weaknesses should also be a big help in developing a successful game plan. However we have a record of poor starts, where our poor defence has given us a much harder task later on when the opposition can let us take most of the risks in trying to catch up, and at times take further advantage. Let's make sure that our defence is primed from the start and aware that mistakes and lack of concentration early on will affect future selection, even for the captain.

Lack of cover for centre/wings. Is Wyn injured? What's the background with Luca Giannini?

Our wafer thin resources/injury list at back three & back row being highlighted by the 2nd game of the season. Good luck lads.

Huge  amount of injuries already after only 1 game is worrying,
What's going on? Good to see youngsters given a chance but all coming on together maybe a problem. Maybe would been better to mix some youngsters in the starting 15 and have some experience  on bench

Disappointing for Hardy not to be rewarded for a superior performance on Saturday.
Foxy’s selection at centre will be excused by the injury situation, but I doubt it would’ve been any different regardless of injuries.
Inexperienced bench (in the pack, at least) - I think our squad is looking really thin.
Nevertheless, good luck to the boys tomorrow - would be lovely to get a win.

Good to see Josh start at 7. Hopefully keep those turnovers coming. 

Ioan Nicholas was solid in the games he played at 15 last season, but is Tom Rogers injured? 

We owe Ulster one or even two, remember last few games over there, Treadwell controversy, Gilroy, high hit on Rogers, home TMO and probably so much more...

Its their first visit to Llanelli for a while too?

Is a great opportunity for some of the home grown players to cement their places in the team... hopefully they take it

Chris, maybe it’s time to add a signature to your profile.
