Felt so positive in the first half. We seemed to be coasting along quite nicely. BP tied up, good gap of air, seemed to be in control.

Life went out of things in the second. Just, wow.

Scarlets had something to play for, and they fought hard, but it looks like we totally switched off.

Don't think Whitehouse gave us very much - the yellow for the tackle against Fitz shoudl have been a red under the current rules and I thought their intentional knock on should've been a yellow - but really have no one to blame but ourselves.

A very dispiriting end to the Pro14 season.

Well that was.........just as the attachment shows!
Some great moments in attack but our defense was Shocking.....I know it was a dead rubber match but wow, throwing away that sort of lead and only scoring 3 points in second half :(
Feel for Ben O'D as I thought he was trying too hard to make something happen. Just needs a bit of luck (and more game time!!)

Good points
Murray is turning into a fine player and still only 21.
Some great plays by SOB 3.0.
DTM made his debut (2 very good throws early as well).
Minutes for players who needed it (clutching here!)

Monday games are great if they’re away games and on tv :)

Should be a good game. It's strange to have it be a bit of a dead rubber - we've had a good season all in all, I think, but weird that we're not scrapping down the end of the table.

Monday matches?
