    You criticised their attack in the post I quoted. They’re not “my” team.

    But no one tracks the runs. The lead up to the first try, your 12 didn’t track Williams, he wasn’t actually watching the play unfold.

    Meh, he looked out of his depth at age grade rugby - there was just distinct lack of competition, and he never looked all that senior level IMO.
    Looked great for LWelshin the Champ? Maybe, but are we really judging someone's international potential by their performance in the champ?

    I was criticising the defending. No ones tracking, just turning and jogging and not watching the opposition.

    Bath are so ******* lazy it is unbelievable. Nobody makes an effort to get back when the line is broken and nobody ever supports it when we make a break. As a team they look like they can't be bothered and haven't been taught anything except to do a slow, 1 out pass, run into contact, don't properly support the breakdown, get slow ball and repeat. It's amateurish at best and absolutely pathetic for supposed professionals. It's been this way for about 3 years now. Put some ******* effort in!

    Only Watson really looks like he is worth anything.

    How Williams goes on, you’d the Welsh players were in fact NZers

    This could easily be 50 points for Scarlets. Are Bath worse than the Dragons?

    Garvey has been pretty useless tonight,
    At one point he tried to jackle his own play, rather than just securing the ball

    If that is a try, that will cheer me up slightly ...

    If that’s not a try, that’s a penalty try.

    As much as Banahan deserves his name next to that for the jump that should be a penalty try and a straight 7pts
    Luckily they got the conversion, but they shouldn't have needed it

    Stephen Jones definitely needs considering for the Wales job, according to Andy Goode on Twitter.

    Anyway, to cheer up the Bath fans, in which year did this match between Bath and Llanelli take place:

    Scarlets have been so much more hungry over the game.

    Fair focks to Scarlets they should beat Toulon next week and go through. If they pull anyone but Ster or Clermont in the quarters they could nick an away win and reach the semis. They look to have proved me wrong anyway.

    From an Irish perspective, the biggest takeaway from this is Tadhg Beirne. Slightly jealous that he's going to Munster instead of us but at least he'll be available for Ireland. Can't believe we ended up letting him go, though. We really let one slip through our fingers there.

    Fairplay to Scarlets as well. They've really turned their campaign around from losing their first two games and being seven points down at home to Treviso with five minutes to play.
