    London Irish will be looking to match Leinster's result at Parc y Scarlets and set up that winner takes all clash at Twickenham the following Saturday.

    Given the injury problems for the Scarlets it's hard to see them putting up much of a fight.

    You can't see anything but a London Irish win and they'll also have revenge to motivate them following the first result at Reading.

  3. How do London Irish fans feel about this as in some ways it is a tricky game for them?

    Sometimes an injury-hit team can be a nightmare to play against!

    wasn't the case for Leinster and even for those games Jones was playing, without him they're really up **** creek.

    Bad miss from Priestland, shows how much they'll miss Jones this afternoon, to stand any chance of winning this they'll have to score plenty of tries.

    Missed the very start.

    Who's in the Scarlett's backline and backrow?

    Edit: less than 3 minutes and Homer in for a try.

    Homer in for Irish's first try, looks like it'll be an annihilation if the Scarlets defence is anything to go by.

    Scarlets: Daniel Evans; Morgan Stoddart, Sean Lamont, Jonathan Davies, Andy Fenby; Rhys Priestland, Martin Roberts; Iestyn Thomas, Ken Owens, Deacon Manu, Lou Reed, Dominic Day, Rob McCusker, Josh Turnbull, David Lyons (capt).

    Looks like there was a knock on in the buildup to that try but missed by the ref.

    London Irish winning 12 -7 at the mo. Very entertaining match.

    Have Scarlets had a full house at Parky Scarlets yet? For a 15,000 all seater stadium they rarely seem to nudge above 7,000!
  13. Good comeback from the Scarlets. 22-22 with a conversion to come. This blindside McCusker looks a fine player.

    EDIT - 24-22 to the home side now.

    Well I didn't see this one coming 24-22 Scarlets with twelve minutes left. Come on boys!

    Scarlets have reall stepped up!
    If Priestlands kicking had been on target earlier on, they'd be well in

    If Scarlets win and Leinster get out of this group then Leinster should be writing them a thank you letter.

    I missed about 15 minutes (yes...the good bit): Did London Irish get a bonus point try?

  18. 31-22 Scarlets win. Leinster top the pool by 5 points going into the last game.

    bonus point for Scarlets denying Irish one as well, they now need to win with a bonus point and deny Leinster one in the process to go through.

    And no Losing bonus point. Leinster Through with a losing bonus point next week.

    Start writing the thank-you letter now.

    Jonathan Davies try and an easy kick to follow. Surely no bonus point for LI. Delighted

    Final Score: Scarlets 31- 22 London Irish
