  Its bad enough the Rfc sacrificing  home games ,now we have Scarlets A switching Sundays Home fixture to Clifton,Bristol .

   What a bonkers situation,yes the weather as been terrible for weeks now,but surely there must be a pitch in the Region or Wales fit and available

Crazy decision to move this to Clifton,i know Llandovery's pitch is in bad condition after last Sat's game against Cardiff but surely there must be a pitch in the region available...Not great on the Scarlets this....

Bristol Rugby’s B&I Cup clash with Scarlets Premiership Select on Sunday has been moved to Clifton RFC (3pm KO).
Inclement weather conditions resulted in an unplayable surface at Llandovery RFC and despite extensive enquiries, the Scarlets Premiership Select management team have been unable to identify an alternative WRU venue on the scheduled date.
In an attempt to maintain the fixture, both clubs have agreed to stage the game at Clifton RFC, Bristol Rugby’s training base.
The fixture – which remains classed as a home game for Scarlets – is £5 entry for adults and free for U16s.

What about The Liberty as a home game? ;)

So do we keep all the revenue from this fixture?

Surely it would have been cheaper to play at Parc y Scarlets than pay transport etc to get to Bristol

Is there something wrong with the pitch at the Parc again? Surely it shouldn't need this much protection, it's hardly used !!

I'd assume that Bristol is the cheapest option that has the required ground standards and is available although a fuller explanation wouldn't go amiss.

The article says an alternative suitable pitch couldn't be found. I'd like to know why Parc Y Scarlets isn't suitable or not available.
The stadium may change, but the dream will remain the same!

I can only assume as there was no game scheduled there for this weekend they have probably done something to the pitch which means it cant be played on or they may not be able to get staff in at short notice

The decision to move the game is not one the club would have taken lightly so surely whatever reasons they have are sound.
