    Both teams will be boyued by their first day victories but will need to back it up here with a second win to keep any chance of qualification alive, a must win game alright. Could be a cracker and a great way to get the action started on matchday 2.

    Aslong as Deacon Manu fronts up we should be ok. The demolition of tolouse does worry me though

    Granted but the second half performance won't be striking the fear of God into the Scarlets.

    Scarlets looked impressive in patches but need to put away teams if they really want to progress, Ulster were there for the taking, obviously the score would have been a fairer reflection had they not knocked on twice.

    Best though had a serious game and has to start the Autumn Internationals for Ireland, surely Eddie can't ignore that performance even it did come against his darling Easterby.

    no better place to start then at home to Toulouse, will be interesting to see what Toulouse turns up given their bp win on Sunday.

    Scarlets pulled out a good win with this one.
    It was an ugly game and Ulster were doing their best to never have to run with the ball if they didn't ahve to. Humphries boot did a hell of a lot of talking and i applaud Scarlets for trying to keep the game the way they like to play and amangeing to get 2 tries against them.
