For me - 1976, 1985, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1993, 1999, 2000 and 2003.

9 out of 17. We won 7, lost 2.

Really amazing how many finals we got to: 17/32 - over half. We won 12/17.

These were the best days of rugby EVER!

1972 Neath 15–9 Llanelli
1973 Llanelli 30–7 Cardiff
1974 Llanelli 12–10 Aberavon
1975 Llanelli 15–6 Aberavon
1976 Llanelli 16–4 Swansea
1977 Newport 16–15 Cardiff
1978 Swansea 13–9 Newport
1979 Bridgend 18–12 Pontypridd
1980 Bridgend 15–9 Swansea
1981 Cardiff 14–6 Bridgend
1982 Cardiff 12–12 Bridgend
1983 Pontypool 18–6 Swansea
1984 Cardiff 24–19 Neath
1985 Llanelli 15–14 Cardiff
1986 Cardiff 28–21 Newport
1987 Cardiff 16–15 Swansea
1988 Llanelli 28–13 Neath
1989 Neath 14–13 Llanelli
1990 Neath 16–10 Bridgend
1991 Llanelli 24–9 Pontypool
1992 Llanelli 16–7 Swansea
1993 Llanelli 21–18 Neath
1994 Cardiff 15–8 Llanelli
1995 Swansea 17–12 Pontypridd
1996 Pontypridd 29–22 Neath
1997 Cardiff 33–26 Swansea
1998 Llanelli 19–12 Ebbw Vale
1999 Swansea 37–10 Llanelli
2000 Llanelli 22–12 Swansea
2001 Newport 13–8 Neath
2002 Pontypridd 20–17 Llanelli
2003 Llanelli 32–9 Newport

2004 onwards was regional rugby so doesn't count.

Went to every one involving us since 88, also went to the 95 which we weren't in because, as we told the other supporters, 'Cup Finals are part of our season ticket'.

I attended the 88 Cup Final ( the best in my opinion)
89 i was ill.
I attended the Pontypool, Swansea and then Neath victories early 90's plus the defeat to Cardiff in 1994.
I also attended the final in Ninian Park. 
 
Since regionalisation I attended the Llanelli v Carmarthen Quins final too.

My favourite was Pooler. That 2nd half typifies Scarlet cavalier running cup rugby.

Ian Jones. Maybe not our best full back of all time, but that was certainly one of the best tries in our 15 shirt.

ScarletBear, do you think the title might be better phrased if you’re going to exclude regional rugby onwards?

I was about to pipe up about 2017 in arguably the finest performance in a final.

However, I’ll leave it there.

Understood, but then someone in Admin will ask me to move it to the Llanelli RFC Section, no doubt.

   Yes spot on sir! A real nail biter .


  As a 11 year old I remember going to the 1973 Final , all week the Cardiff press were saying they only had to turn up to secure the result . What a performance by the super Scarlets to secure a 30-7 victory .

The 73 final we smashed Cardiff though David parry jones in the commentary was of the opinion that it was neck and neck till the end.
The 85 final we were written off totally.  Cardiff shouldn’t have had their tries - cordle bounced the ball and Alan Phillips was a mile forward.

I went to them all. Great memories. 1985 sticks out for me. Gary Pearce's late drop goal and the heart stopping moment when Gareth Davies's last second drop shaded the outside of the post.

88, 89, 98 and 99.

88 was my first time at the National Stadium (I was 6) and one of my favourite games of all time. Ieuans try after kick ping pong and the reaction of the crowd made me fall in love with the game and the Scarlets.

99 was my first time at Ninian Park and probably my least favourite game of all time. Losing to the Jacks in the baking heat, sitting on uncomfortable wooden benches in a stadium which stank of pish was not an experience I ever want to repeat. Especially seen as we'd just battered Cardiff in the semi's!

As I recall, that was quite a strange game. We struggled for any fluency  for most of the match and then made a couple of substitutions (Finau, Luke Gross.....) and ended up winning 32-9.

It was the last one before regionalisation so fitting that we won it!!

Nigel played in six winning teams: 1985, 1988, 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1998.
I saw all the Llanelli finals apart from 1993 when I was admitted to hospital with malaria on the morning of the match. My personal favourite was the 1985 final which ended a nine year drought.

88, 89, 91, 92, 93, 94, 98, 99, 00, 02, 03.
 
88 - Ieuan scored immediately in the corner. The band hadn't even left the field. Jiffy's day
89 - Kevin Phillips theatrical lifting of the cup. Ugh. A classic Ieuan try nonetheless
91 - Very memorable, some scintillating long range tries in a dominant win. Spaceman
92 - Really big clash, Ieuan skinning Simon Davies the Jack winger, Moon inspirational
93 - Big favourites but never really got going after a phenomenal season. Tarw's drop goal
94 - Expecting us to win, but we'd peaked the season before. Boobyer fullback didn't go well IIRC
98 - Bristol. First win after a few years of wilderness. Not a vintage team. Madden's try. Showtime
99 - Disaster at Ninian Park
00 - A win to right the wrongs of the year before. We'd kicked on with major signings
02 - Should have beaten Ponty, but team on a downer after the HC semi
03 - Class team that easily despatched Newport
 
Does anyone remember how we went out in 2000/01?

Wasn't there some controversy over Tarw's drop goal?  Something like it was a tap penalty as we had no right to kick direct for goal, but he took the drop kick before the opposition had touched the ball, which in effect was taking a direct kick at goal, so should have been disallowed - or have the years totally puddled my brain.

My only recollection is the disappointment and the drabness of the game following three exciting finals. Pretty sure Neil Boobyer had to play fullback and it didn't work out too well.

100% correct, tarw made two game defining kicks in big matches this and what was the other one?

Yes that is correct, Rob. But prior to the DG, while Neath didn't fully regain possession, the ball had been competed for at a series of breakdowns and it was very unlikely that a Neath player hadn't touched it.
 
Also, there was around 20 minutes still to play, so it wasn't a last minute decisive moment really.

Wasn't there some controversy over Tarw's drop goal?  Something like it was a tap penalty as we had no right to kick direct for goal, but he took the drop kick before the opposition had touched the ball, which in effect was taking a direct kick at goal, so should have been disallowed - or have the years totally puddled my brain.
 
100% correct, tarw made two game defining kicks in big matches this and what was the other one?

Wasn’t it Tarw who hoofed it upfield for Ieuan’s try against England when he caught Underwood napping?

Been to every final even the defeat to Neath in 1972 I remember that one well, small crowd standing in the North stand. Robert Fouracre, a second row thrust into action at prop, disaster. Ball going through Roger Davies legs for a Neath try.

As passionate a Scarlets fan I am, nothing beats Llanelli RFC cup runs/finals.

Very small crowd 12000. If clashed with the fa cup final .
