Regan King moves to outside centre to allow Gavin Evans to return to inside centre, with Matthew Watkins missing out. Ceiron Thomas moves back to full-back with Stephen Jones returning at fly-half. Phil John and Daecon Manu miss out and are replaced by Iestyn Thomas and Craig Dunlea. Skipper Simon Easterby moves to blindside to accomodate Gavin Thomas while Vernan Cooper comes into the second row.

    Scarlets made their intentions quite clear with their win in Reading tonight, comprehensive in the end with them running out 25-32 winners in the end and a bonus point to boot.

    Not the hardest stadium to win at is the Madejeski, but a 5 pointer away from home certainly won't do their progress chances any harm.

    Plus it's always nice to see the, ahem, eejit OIrish fans squirm.
