Poor game. A lot of jumping out of the defensive line in the first half. No ball carriers from second row or back row. Amos fumbling ball after ball. No leader there. Front row replacements not up to it. Decision making from centres not great.
Jackaling was ok. And Adams scored. No other positives.

You might say first game back. But Scarlets managed to play well.

What’s everyone else’s thoughts?

He’s an @#$%&. Loves the attention. Referees poor in parts yesterday.
I have to take my hat off to Scarlets defence. It was aggressive as they come!

The Steff Evans try was very dubious. Between them Owens and Whitehouse made a complete hash of it. By saying ‘is there any reason not to award a try’ he put the TMO in a difficult position. There is no way in real time they could tell whether a try was scored. The referral should have been ‘yes or no’. He later seemed determined to compensate by awarding a try from a very obvious forward pass😏

In fairness it was a tough call. Could of gone either way. What’s more concerning is that the defence were constantly in that position. We missed a few players. But as I’ve said before we need more recruitment. Won’t happen for another year though I reckon.

Whitehouse was incompetent to say he could see from his angle with any confidence that it was a scarlets try, Owens should have known better but as said before it's no surprise from his form in previous matches. Largely academical though, not much to add from Empire58s thoughts. Looking forward to the end of this disappointing season and a better 20-21.
