Scarlets And Liam Williams Won't Be Red-Faced Against Cardiff Blues Again, Insists Glenn Delaney

Glenn Delaney believes his 14-man Scarlets side have learnt well from their defeat to the Cardiff Blues earlier in the month – and can now extract their revenge. The regions met at the start of January at the Cardiff City Stadium, with the capital region running out 29-20 winners.

Wales Coach Wayne Pivac Tries To Lock In English-Based Stars For Entire Six Nations

How Long Before Bigger Clubs Notice The Job Being Done by Swansea City's Steve Cooper?
