    Llanelli Scarlets v Cardiff Blues

    I've picked this game as it is the make or break match for Llanelli and for Cardiff aswell. Leinster have stormed to the top of the table, leaving both Welsh regions trailing below. Llanelli have won just one of their last four Magners League games, while Cardiff come into the game after a thrilling injury time win over Munster.
    The teams haven't been announced yet. This is probably going to be the last derby game in Stradey Park, so I expect Llanelli to put a lot of passion into their performance, and with the Blues playing Toulouse in a few weeks, I don't see them putting out their best side. I suppose this benefits the Scarlets in a way because I think Cardiff would be them even in Stradey Park based on this years form.
    Until the teams are announced, I'll predict a ten point win for Llanelli.

    I think the Scarlets are too unpredictable this season to even hazard a guess as to what the result will be. It's as though every match a different side turns up, or it depends on if the forwards decide to play. Hopefully this time it will be one of their good matches so I can continue on my rugby high from Saturday :)

    I won't be going, I live 30 miles from the Llanelli area and can't be arsed to get a ticket. >_> If it was a European Cup game I'd consider it, but I doubt we'll ever see Llanelli and Cardiff face off an a European Cup game (especially not a knockout game :().

    Am a bit worried, as Stephen Jones is playing well atm, and in general it's a strong Scarlets team compared to the Cardiff one. If MacLoed performs, then I think Cardiff can win, if not, then Llanelli will win by around 7 - 10 points.
  10. Pretty sad that we have to worry how one man performs? It's bad enough relying on your best player, but having to rely on the worse one? sucks.

    tell me about it...
    at least Dai Flanagan's on the bench, so hopefully we can get him as well as Nicky Robinson fit and ready for Toulouse next month. But yeah, hope MacLeod fronts up and keeps his confidence up (you could see how it dropped halfway through against Leinster) so we can get revenge for the hammering we had last time we played at Stradey.
  12. Well it is in the past now but he made a few critical errors at Bristol.

    Excellent first half.

    Scarlets 2 pts down at the break but I reckon they've shown more than enough to take the game out in the second half especially with the wind in their favour.

    Nicely poised 15-17 to Cardiff at half time, think the Scarlets are going to sneak this one though...

    Not sure what's a good result for Leinster here, probably a Blues win as that takes the Scarlets further out of the equation and since the Blues don't play Leinster not as many chances to close the gap.

    Scarlets 3 tries to the good now. 20 minutes left to try and get the BP.

    Flannigan playing not too badly, but seems a bit everywhere at times.
    Basic skills are pretty poor overall.

    Cardiff are due a try right now.


    Silly play by Cardiff, Stephen kicks a long penalty and the game is essentially over for the blues now.

    Great try! :cheers:
