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.
The level of noise and cheering and backslapping was pretty high as well from both sides ( even unenforced errors)but more so the Osprey boys I felt . It’s becoming a habit likely to stick unless refs apply some sensible damper on it all


It's bred into all Ospreys to be choppsy its in their dna.


In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

Good summary we were poor first half and the Ospreys would be disappointed they weren't further ahead,their 15 was very good..2nd half a total turn around we looked a different team with the bench making an impact...Looking forward to more games after Xmas

   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! 😂

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

nothing there last night. We have played all the regions now except RGC I think and won them all. 
I think that these are ‘friendlies’. S4C usually stream the U18s colleges league and U18 RAG league when it starts in January. 

100% win including Saracen’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

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