Afew interesting calls Olowefela over thompstone, and 2 young props named on the bench. Good to see Spencer back definitely missed him during his suspension. I’m still excited for the game even after last week. Gutted that O’Connor seemingly injured again surely it not sustainable for him or the club.

Happy to see Gigena get some time off the bench. Always been impressed with him and never got why he hasn’t had more time on the pitch. Better than Ma’afu!

Anyone else a bit worried about TV? That's 4 or 5 weeks missing now isn't it - must have been an extremely bad concussion.

Hope that Tonga let him recover.

Injured on 16th September Vs Wasps so nearly 5 weeks. Maybe there's additional concern if it caused any problems with his previously broken jaw?

Really looking forward to this match. Both need to win after having lost last week - Tigers particularly and preferably with a bp, or am I expecting too much? Let’s hope the ground is full and that Tigers supporters make loads of noise!!

I'd take a win right now, preferably with no LBP for Scarlets then the icing on the cake would be a TBP for us.

Just hope the master baker gets the ingredients correct and doesn't overcook it or leave it a soggy mess.

Looking forward to this one, expecting an open game in good weather.

Can't see there being a big crowd given our current form and it being a Friday night, which I love but others seemingly not.
Still that means there should be plenty of room on the terrace!!
