Yes, just quinnell to league but that was just a few months after leaving Tarw go to the blues, that meant that we arguably lost to 2 standout back rowers in Welsh if not British rugby at that time, something we never recovered from fully.
Pegs walked away again and the above mentioned players also moved on.
Any team would struggle after losing player players of that ilk in quick succession, that back row combination would give any back row in Europe a run for their money, even today.

Incredible season all round. I remember being at Rodney Parade when we put 70+ points on them. Me and my mate were just laughing after a while as it was just ridiculous what was unfolding.

I remember listening to Radio Wales on the way to Cardiff to watch the game in which Ieuan got that terrible injury.Tarw was very bitter in the interview.

A great victory based mainly on tenacity and character. But the game has changed so much and I wonder how many of that starting Llanelli team would get into this season's much less successful Scarlets best XV. If I was being provocative I would say only Ieuan Evans would be an automatic choice. The S4C commentary from Huw Llywelyn Davies, Grav, and with occasional comments from Delme was excellent.

Roebucks kicking was very poor all over the place. Gave us a big platform. Colin Stephens played the game of his life. He is a tad bulkier now mind ! 

I loved the “ old days “ and I was there in 1972 , but when I look back at those low scores and the poor pitches and the wet heavy balls and untidy line outs ( loved the old scrums mind) , I am glad we are now in 2020. The guys are strong and fit and so skilled. Nice to reminisce but the modern game is so much better to watch I have to concede.

lyn jones would push cubby, dont forget quinnell was also available, youd also have to consider ricky evans and lamerton 
(btw I liked the the bit where delaney then lamerton runs back from a position so offside hes standing where marty roebuck should have been and he gets penalised ..followed by the exaggerated reaction of absolute, shock, horror and disgust from the grandstand, at this awful decision was classic stradey) LOL
