Pro14 other games 18/19

Bennetton beat Scarlets away 38-29 with 14 men after a first half red.

Amazing result, I did think Scarlets would regress but Benetton's progression is awesome.

Other way around in terms of result.

Still pretty impressive from Treviso to run them so close, mind. They are looking good so far and will be tough opponents for us.

Leinster and Munster thrashing welsh opposition. Ospreys team was a joke and the dragons just aren’t good enough. And people wonder why our league is labelled a joke.

Not a great weekend for our Welsh cousins in general - despite being 21-0 up at one point, Cardiff have just lost 26-24 to Zebre!!

Fair play to the men in black and white though - terrific comeback.

This is a nonsense argument btw. They say the leagues a joke because the Irish first XV rarely play. But then they talk up the Irish depth. Same with Leinster. If the league was so bad the Irish teams wouldn't have been able to create such quality and depth.

In addition, the Italians are improving yearly, the Dragons have good players on paper and need the right coaching staff, the Ospreys and Cardiff just don't have the depth - yet.

South African teams a bit of a farce, I think if they're dropped the league would be up there.

French league is unwatchable, English rugby is eating itself with the union Vs the league. The English pundits and journos are just more vociferous.

Watched this today on the highlights programme and seemed to me Lloyd Linton let forward looking passes go in the first 3 Scarlets tries. Not easy to tell for sure as the Welsh commentators were blind to them so no replays. Perhaps Cockers can have a word . . .
