SCARLETS OFF TO A RED HOT START



A modest crowd, some 7,000 lovely people, but those there were in good voice to see the beginning of a great season. 

My Home Counties-accented ‘Come on you Scarlets’ doubtless stood out from the Llanelli man-shouts.

On the pitch Wingers George North (Wales) and Andy Fenby scored two tries apiece as the Scarlets opened their RaboDirect Pro12 matches with a 45-20 victory over Leinster at the Parc y Scarlets. 

There were also tries for man of the match, and new signing, Liam Williams, Scott Williams and Kieran Murphy.

We had arrived early and made a tour of the retail park next to the stadium -  prior to the match’s start enjoyed a grand feast, eaten in the car and purchased fresh from Morrissons moments earlier – a perfect prelude to great rugby.

The season has started!
