  1. The team selections will soon tell us – Franco will rotate and still put out a very strong team (back three cover getting thin tho). But this is a bit of a dead rubber for Scarlets so expect them to keep their powder dry and deprive us of any psychological advantage by keeping their stars rested….

    • Then again, maybe got that wrong as they still have a fighting chance to qualify for Champions cup next year….

  2. Regardless of the outcome, and I think we’ll narrowly win, Smith has brought a welcome change of fortune and a spark to our game.

  3. Strangely the ideal URC position based on current rankings for Glasgow is 3rd vs Connaught or 4th vs Munster. Both Bulls and Lions would be a much harder draw. Assuming positions remain the same.

  5. It will be interesting how Glasgow treat this Fridays match, they need to win to stay in the top 4 for a home tie in the URC and they need a marker for the cup game later in the month. Do Scarlets who look to be unlikely to make the top 8 send up reserves and keep their powder dry for the challenge cup game. Time will tell, but playing Scarlets is an easier game than Toulon in the semi-s.

    • good questions Al
      Smith will rotate as he does, Scarlets will I think be all in for the Challenge Cup, having little chance of gaining HC qualification now so will also rotate
