Llanelli Are The People’s Choice

Llanelli Are The People’s Choice

With Round 2 of the Heineken Cup this weekend- this week on wru.co.uk we’ve been asking the question- “Who will progress furthest in this year’s competition?”

Share this page:

Last week 59% voted for the Scarlets to be our top team, and after Llanelli’s magnificent 45-15 win over Glasgow, it seems they have convinced more people! 62% of the vote this week has gone to Gareth Jenkins’ men.

Neath’s draw against Leicester has convinced 19 % of you that they will be our top side- while Cardiff’s disappointing defeat to Biarritz means just 11 % of you believe they can do well in Heineken Cup rugby this season.

But Swansea and Newport have not convinced many people they will do well in the tournament- both sides polling just 4% of the vote.

Here’s what they’re saying on the streets of Cardiff.

“Llanelli are my tip of all the Welsh sides- but honestly, I don’t think they’ll do it. They had their chance last year.” – Stuart 44- Cardiff

“Cardiff are in trouble- they’ve got a poor front five, and I think that will cost them. It’s no good having good backs- which they do, if they can’t ever get the ball.” Chris 30, Cardiff.

“Neath had a gutsy game against Leicester, but they were lucky to get a draw…I hope they do well but I’m not confident.” Mark 42 Penarth.

“I’m very disappointed in Newport- it looked good last year but the wheels have fallen off haven’t they…” Terry, 61 Cardiff.

What do you think…

Can Newport finally get the win they’ve been looking for with success over Toulouse tonight?

Will Llanelli win in France against Bourgoin?

Can Swansea prove everyone wrong and qualify for the knock-out stages?
