Comment from Head Coach, Lyn Jones:

"€œI was pleased with the performance against the Blues although I feel we were little unfortunate in not getting the result.  We gave away too many points early on, but could still have won the match.  We must now put the disappointment behind us and look ahead to Boxing Day.  The Scarlets at home is the biggest game of the season for us and we are looking forward to welcoming our friends to a packed Liberty Stadium."€
