Of note is that Halfpenny still has his hamstring injury, but at the same time McNicholl is back.

Should be a good game, Glasgow are tough to beat at the little bandbox they play at.

Gla normally get a full house normally 7351 ;)
The stadium is also 'expandable' up to 10k and I believe that it is expanded for this game?

However the pitch has a reputation for L-o-n-g kicking ( maybe it's the size? ;) )

McNicholl is a huge plus and could be the difference.

It will however be very close and on balance, I think the Warriors may just shade it.

Glasgow 29 Scarlets 27

Yes, McNicholl is a huge plus. Scarlets will need total domination up front if they have any hope of winning this one. It's going to be tough.

Should be a cracking game however. I'm hoping the Scarlets can put the demons of the Leinster game behind them.

I've just noticed that Jonathan Evans has been preferred above Aled Davies for the SH bench.
It may have passed me by but I haven't heard that Aled was injured.
TBQH I prefer Jonathan to Aled.

Very tough game, Scarlets will have to be at their very best and get the rub of the green. I want the Scarlets to win but have a nagging feeling they will lose, hope I am proved wrong, it will certainly prove the Scarlets character if they win this one.
It would be nice to face Leinster in the final, if both team progress of course.
McNicholl is a big boost, he was on fire at the beginning of the season.

Not feeling very confident about this game.

Hope we show better than at Leinster.

Whatever happens tonight, it will have been an unbelievable season for the Scarlets. That home quarter final against La Rochelle really was something else - one of the best atmospheres ever, which will stay long in the memory. 8)
