Scarlets ball handling skills looked pretty sharp out west at the weekend must say. I would prefer to avoid them in the semi if possible. Them V Us could be a cracker of a final though. 16 wins in 18 games in the Pro12 is an impressive run.
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Scarlets deffo looking more dangerous than the O's - O's still looked a little unsure dispatching an off colour Ulster..............and the Scarlets are peaking at the right time and were impressive v Connacht.

Neither will be easy but either should be well within our capabilities in the RDS.

Ideal would be O's in the semi for me and either team in Red in the final !!

Have we ever beaten Ospreys in a knockout game?
They beat us in 2010 and 2012 - any other clashes?

No. Will be good to have the chance to finally beat them at the RDS in a knockout game (if, as seems likely, in-form Scarlets beat them at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday).

Not enough though, is it! We still have to finish above Munster in that case. A Munster and Ulster win will (almost certainly) see us finishing 2nd.

Yep, we beat them in the Celtic Cup in 2003. Game was played in Donnybrook.
