Connacht v Llanelli Scarlets

Guinness Pro 12 Round 14

Sunday 15th February Kick Off 12:45 On TV: S4C

While Round 2 of the 6 nations will have everyone talking during the week ahead, Connacht play Scarlets next Sunday in a game which could have a significant bearing on which European competition Connacht will play in in 2015/16. Connacht edged out the Welsh side at the Sportsground but despite being more affected than Connacht by international absentees, Scarlets unbeaten home record is likely to leave them as favourites to narrow the gap to 6th place with a win.
