Borders v Scarlets


An Tarbh

Borders will be looking to get off the bottom of the table in this clash at Netherdale while in contrast to them Llanelli will be looking for a bp win to see them join Ulster at the top on 29 points.

Scarlets only show 2 changes from their win over Munster with prop Craig Dunlea replacing fellow Kiwi Deacon Manu while Adam Jones moves to the second row from the replacements bench, swapping with Vernon Cooper.

Ross Ford misses out for Borders after picking up a 7 day ban for punching.
Thought the Scarlets would get the bp here tonight and join Ulster at the summit but not to be but as Leinster proved getting a result at Netherdale isn't too easy so I doubt the Scarlets will be overly dissappointed, plus they have a game in hand as well.
Yeah, i've not seen the highlights yet, but from the sounds of things it was probably a converted try a-piece and then it was penalties the rest of the way.

Can't have been a good night weather wise!
