Watched the highlights yesterday, there were a lot of youngsters playing, their back line seems quite naive but full of youthfull exuberance. The score line looked good but the 10 (Dan Newton)kicked 19 of the 32 points and a prop scored wide out the wing so I don't see any major headaches as long as our forwards front up !!!!
The Scarlets are there for the taking !!!!!!

Yes...I'd say this will be a relatively low-scoring match.  Scarlets' forwards are better than their backs at this point (as are ours).  Our pack has proven themselves to be worthy of any challenge thrown at them.  I'm hoping to see some more creativity and explosiveness from our backs on Saturday.

I saw the second half and it was a poor game under tough conditions. Very hard to tell if Scarlets are a threat or not based what happened.

Scarlets have lost two years in a row in the Sportsground, but they have been close games. This is going to be tough. But with a settled backrow and a bit more dynamism in the back line I think we'll come out on top. We have to, this is the RWC season and we need to get the max out of these games.

Not to mention the Clan factor - hopefully a great atmosphere will help the lads get an opening home win.

Absolutely agree... nothing annoys me more than yelping when someone is going for a kick. I'm sure the kicker probably doesn't give a hoot, but it's a nice tradition.
Drums... yes. I think Breifne is bring a bodhrán.

It will be interesting to see how many people show up now hope for 3000 + obviously.

The 7000 at the Toulon game was just epic " Dreaming of a team of John Muldoons "  ;D

Yes...I'll have my bodhrán with me, but we'll need a bunch of people that have their own cheapy ones to bring theirs or go spend a few quid and acquire one.
