Scarlets Head Coach Dwayne Peel said: “We are very excited. We have scouted the (Emirates) Lions through the Currie Cup and we took a lot from last week’s game versus Zebre. They were very impressive in the first half and punished Zebre every opportunity they got. The fact the four big South African franchises are in the URC is great for the league and we are looking forward to the challenge on Friday.”
Emirates Lions Head Coach Ivan van Rooyen said:“We appreciate that Scarlets will pose a different challenge for us, but we are confident the players selected will once more aim for a positive result tomorrow. The team has prepared well in the lead-up to tomorrow, with a few productive planning sessions on and off the training field. Last week we spoke about momentum and that’s what we would like maintain from here onwards,”
