Perennial Welsh flagbearers in Europe, Llanelli Scarlets have finally secured a place in next year’s European Rugby Cup. In a thrilling match, three second half tries for the Welsh Standalone Club secured the Scarlets place at the European top table in 2010/2011.
“It was a nervy finish with Toulon throwing it all at the Welsh team in the last few minutes, but after a long hard season, I’ve just sat the players in the bar after the match and told them that I believed in them. That helped us pull through in the end.” said Llanelli boss Nigel Davies as he was mobbed by over-joyed Welshmen.
Regan King, who didn’t even make the plane out to Marseille, was overjoyed. “I’ve hid a lut abit pishun ind proid ov the Wilsh, but it jist goes to showe wut you cin do win you mix the Wilsh haaaart with Kiwi grut.” he said, speaking through his translator. His views were echoed by Scarlets all time top scorer, Stephen Jones “It’s not often that I don’t get on the scoresheet myself, so I was a bit nervy but the lads pulled through. This is a proud day for all of us here at Parc Y Llanelli. It just goes to show that West IS best.”
