Interesting game between Scarlets and Blues. The home team were clearly superior without being anything special. Both teams were rusty but some promising touches.

Hopefully Gareth Davies and Tomis Williams aren’t too badly hurt.

Jonny Williams looks like a decent signing.

Otherwise it was great to watch some live rugby.

Yeah, great to see something. It was pretty decent too, considering the amount of rust you'd expect to have built up. Clearly they were not taking it easy in the lockdown.

Big question - what was that on Steff Evans' head? The unholy offspring of a mohican and a mullet? Is the mullehican a deliberate thing or just the cruel outcome of lockdown?

Surely a bet? It is ludicrous

Looks like it'll be the Pro 12 for next season, Both SA teams have withdrawn, Kings sound close to collapse, Cheetahs withdrawn because of travel restrictions.

I suspect the SA teams will be back in time. Unless they decide just to recreate their internal fixtures and be done with it.

Perfectly good try disallowed.

Bastard TMO.

Scarlets the better team and deserved a win, but that was terrible refereeing. What precisely is Basham supposed to do, lie there and be penalised for not rolling away?

Aye, a ludicrous decision which really took the game away from the Dragons with the 10 point swing.

Close match vs Toulon, tough loss for the Scarlets. Brilliant try-saving tackle from Halfpenny in the first half.

Absolutely perfect tackle.

Hopefully he isn't seriously hurt.

I was thinking Halfpenny's not big enough to stop that guy, he's got too much momentum. But no, perfect execution. Coaches should keep a video of that.

McNichol looked in a bad way, hope it's not as bad as it seemed.

It looked like he'd disclocated his ankle to me, Steff Evans also took a knock quite early on but appeared to shrug it off,.

The game itself was there for the taking had the Scarlets been a bit more clinical, whilst Johnny Williams made excellent ground with some hard carries he doesn't have the vision yet to put players through, McNicholl would have walked in under the posts from the one break, he also got turned over by running away from support on a few occasions, some things for him to work on for sure, Sam Lousi also gave a few silly penalties away.

Samson Lee looked like he's getting back to his destructive best, at last, so that's a good thing.

The Halfpenny tackle was textbook.

Why on earth did Toulon play Serin at 10, they were markedly better when he went off.
