The teams aren’t hugely different from October when we gubbed them 46-7

Very decent looking side given the 6N is progress. But surely the game is going to be postponed? The weather forecast is terrible, with storm force winds and heavy rain. What is the point in trying to play a professional rugby game in those conditions? It would be awful for players and spectators, and the game will be a lottery. Hopefully sense prevails.

That's a very strong team so important for us it goes ahead as a postponement would likely mean a weaker team (given both sides still in Europe only available weekends would be the last two 6N weekends in March when we'd have fewer international releases (possibly none.)
Again assuming the team is on the way by bus (and back) a heck of journey to make if game off (and possible travel difficulties on way back if forecast proves right.)
Presumably the Dragons/Benetton match was called off early to save the Italians flying over today but ironically our bus trip today will take much longer than that flight!

I'm starting to think that Charlie Shiel must have offered the boss a free hair cut once too often. He's obviously done something to annoy him.

Someone on the Scarlets forum was wondering if it was called off because they were worried that Dave Parade was going to blow over.

Made I laugh, anyway :D

Two terrific tries, but we aren't playing well, hopefully it's the conditions and we will have them in our favour in the second half

conditions been dreadful. Couple of over ambitious kicks for VDM didn't help. But defence excellent

Trying to follow via text update on the ER site are we conceding loads of turnovers and quite a few pens?

Plus kicking poorly and now the scrum is on skates at times.

I thought VdW was poor and then Hickey came on. Christ.

Overall not great. But defence was superb and a win is a win on those conditions.
