RECAP: Scarlets v Southern Kings
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our coverage of the Pro14 Round 12 encounter between Scarlets and the Southern Kings at in Llanelli.
Brad Mooar’s Scarlets return to home turf this weekend no doubt hoping for a swift rebound from defeat to Edinburgh last time out. They now lie third in Conference B, three behind Munster and six behind Edinburgh, and will hope two of the Championship stat leaders come to the fore – Josh Macleod leads turnovers with 16 and Uzair Cassiem leads carries with 124.
For the Kings, meanwhile, it’s another tricky tie on their European tour but they did win the last time they visited Wales (at Ospreys in Round Six) and Robbi Kempson’s men can take advantage of Six Nations absences.
