Did you know?

Scarlets have failed to register a single league point from any of their last four fixtures in the Guinness PRO12.

The Welshmen have lost their last three games at Parc y Scarlets but have never lost four in a row at the venue since moving there in 2008.

Connacht’s match at Zebre on Saturday was abandoned at half-time. The defending Guinness PRO12 Champions have also yet to record a league point this season.

Each side has won its respective home game when the two teams have met in the past two seasons.

Scarlets have won their last eleven home games against Connacht, at three different venues, with Connacht’s most recent success on Scarlets soil being at Stradey Park in the PRO12 in October 2004.
