    Not sure how reliable this is. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/...rugby-18930197

      Thanks- there’s a surprising amount of hedging in that piece.

        Some talk that the Government is about to allow 'limited' crowds to open sports venues - a figure of 5,000 mentioned for the Aviva. If true, (I have my doubts) that would equate to an attendance of approximately 2,500 in Thomond Park. We should know more after the Governments 5 level plan announcement today.

            If correct, Scarlets will probably be on the rebound from a Challenge Cup beating by Toulon (this weekend) and be absolutely gunning for a victory over Munster.

            Scarlets will probably go full strength and be favourites.


            Lets hope Scarlets have somehow missed Munster's box kick strategy - if it is yet again the cunning plan for the game....

              And there’s an early opportunity to lose points at home to Edinburgh too- plenty to look forward to. On the other hand, a bruised and humiliated Scarlets, unable to hear the little black saucepan, wilt under the perplexing array of attacking moves we’ve been preparing, and Edinburgh, smarting at another knock out loss, cave in under the pressure of a revenge seeming Munster...

                a dangerous point - when anger gives way to ridicule...

                Do really need to win this one. Wonder if Killer and Kleyn back - and if Murray will start...

                  Max 500 at matches until March. And that’s if we go to Level 1

                      We went there last year for the Hcup game, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good stadium, great museums and lovely beach. Don't know what it's like in covid times, but I definitely regret now all of the times we drove past and never stopped on the way to the ferry.

                        I think this paragraph gives hopes of larger crowds in stadiums like TP and the Aviva. Especially with the IRFU, FAI and GAA setting up a combined group to work out logistics with the government.
                        For large purpose built event facilities (such as stadia, auditoriums, conferencing/event centres), specific guidance will be developed with the relevant sectors to take account of size and different conditions for events such as large national and international sporting events.

                            Any idea when the pro 12 fixtures will be out ? We have a match on weekend 3/4/5 oct and we don’t know who we are playing.

                                Is that still just based on the wales on line story?
