Scarlets comments about having to play ULSTER RUGBY

1 minute, 39 seconds Read

Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac has showed confidence in the side that secured a mammoth victory over reigning champions Glasgow last weekend sticking with an unchanged starting XV for the first home game of the 2015-16 Guinness PRO12 campaign.

Speaking ahead of the game Pivac said: “It’s very early days, but Ulster certainly they put on a very good performance at home last weekend and on the evidence of that whilst the Rugby World Cup is on they’ll still be a very strong side and one of the leaders.

“They are one of the top sides, we played them four times last year and had three real battles and one where they got on top of us at home. We know we’re in for a tough day at the office on Saturday.”

The only change comes on the replacements bench with Rhodri Williams unavailable due to concussion. Last weekend’s man of the match John Barclay has been named captain for Saturday’s clash.

Saturday’s Guinness PRO12 clash will be Scarlets’ first outing at home this season and a win against champions Glasgow in the opening round last weekend has been a welcome boost for both supporters and players alike.

Pivac went on to say: “The boys love playing at home, every side does. We love getting out here in front of home supporters and familiar surroundings.”
