Pro14 Semi-Finals - Gla v Sca Fri 19:45 & Lei v Mun Sat 15:5

Postby The Feral Goat on Thu May 17, 2018 2:45 pm

First match teams are out.

Glasgow:

S Hogg; T Seymour, N Grigg, S Johnson, DTH van der Merwe; F Russell, G Horne; J Bhatti, F Brown, Z Fagerson; T Swinson, J Gray; M Fagerson, C Gibbins, R Wilson (capt).
Replacements: G Turner, A Allan, S Halanukonuka, R Harley, C Fusaro, H Pyrgos, P Horne, R Jackson.

Scarlets:

J McNicholl; T Prydie, S Williams, H Parkes, S Evans; R Patchell, G Davies; R Evans, K Owens (capt), S Lee, T Beirne, S Cummins, A Shingler, J Davies, J Barclay.
Replacements: R Elias, W Jones, W Kruger, L Rawlins, W Boyde, J Evans, D Jones, S Hughes.

Good weather, artificial pitch, two teams that like to play running rugby it could be a cracking match or a massive let down.

Glasgow probably favourites being at home although Scarlets possibly in a bit better form. Back row and 9/10 battles should be good.

Can see why Ali Price might be open to a move.

Scarlets/Wales have got his number and Rennie must be petrified he throws them another intercept pass! Good idea to keep him out of team until he recovers!

Thought a good few of them looked nervous as they came out, occasion perhaps getting to them, but after conceding first try had settled.

They have the ability that tear Scarlets apart as much as Scarlets can them but the Glasgow back row really need to start asserting themselves on the game with Barclay off.

Few Lacey classic SteveWalsh decisions for me but Scarlets value for the HT lead they have the chaos factor dialled back just enough to have sufficient control and make good decisions, Glasgow just a bit frantic.

Not game, over but Glasgow have to score first and pack have to impose themselves more.

Matt Fagerson in the Scotland squad is pure Glasgow bias. Any big match he gets totally washed out.

Very talented 19 year old - should be a main man in the under 20s. Not a full international.

If this is future Glasgow we'll be ahead of them in the league next year
Don't mention Rory Hutton. I did once but I think I got away with it.

Got to agree, their pack is not competitive, the backs score great tries because they have to as they get zero platform at any phase. They need to do the opposite of us and let some star backs go to balance the squad better.

Couple of poor decisions from ref but Glasgow 2nd best everywhere.

Lacey was stinking, further enhancing his rep for astonishing incompetence. However it had nothing to do with the result. jamesmatthew tackling, jamesmatthew defensive alignment, constantly looking for the pretty ball and miracle offload and most importantly a powder puff pack.

I know I like to wind the weeg up but I take no pleasure in that.

Didn't think Lacey got much wrong to be honest. Glasgow were just their usual selves when they come against a good team. Headless and ill disciplined. Scarlets just had to wait for the mistake all game.
