The Scarlets will attempt to become just the second side to beat Leinster in the RaboDirect PRO12 tournament this season, when the two sides clash at the Parc y Scarlets Stadium in Llanelli on Friday Evening, in Round 9 of the competition. The Welsh Region made a miserable start to the campaign, losing all of their first three fixtures, at home against Munster, and then away to Edinburgh and Ulster. However, since their defeat in Belfast, they have five straight victories to their credit in the PRO12. Three of those successes coming at the Parc.

In total from their record of five wins and three defeats, the Welsh side have accumulated 22 points, enough to place them sixth in the table going into the weekend's fixtures. They are just four points outside the play-off positions. Leinster have proved an almost unstoppable force in this season's tournament. The only defeat that they have suffered in eight fixtures, came in Round 2 when they travelled to Glasgow and were beaten by the Warriors by 25-33. Since the loss at the Scotstoun, the Dublin based Irish Province have won at Edinburgh, the Cardiff Blues and Zebre, and they now top the table by three points.

Scarlets sit proudly at the top of the Guinness PRO12 table, with three wins out of three, as they go into Friday's match at the Parc y Scarlets Stadium against Leinster from Ireland. The only time that the Welsh Region have suffered defeat at the venue since Boxing Day 2013, was against the Scottish outfit Edinburgh last March. When the two sides met in Round 17 of last season's RaboDirect PRO12 tournament, the Scarlets prevailed 23-13, which ended a run of six successive losses in all competitions to the Irish Province. However, if they make it four wins from four games, it will be the first time that the Scarlets have registered consecutive wins against the Dublin based outfit since 2004.

Scarlets continue their pursuit of Connacht for the final automatic qualification position from the RaboDirect PRO12 tournament, for next seasons Champions Cup, when they play the reigning Champions Leinster at Parc y Scarlets Stadium on Saturday. The Welsh Region are unbeaten at their Parc home in the PRO12 since Boxing day 2013, when they were beaten by West Wales rivals the Ospreys.

Welsh province Scarlets face a tough opening game in the Pro12 as they take on defending champions Leinster in Round 1. Watch Scarlets v Leinster live on your computer by joining watchliverugby.tv today. The men from Llanelli will only have to look to last season’s opening clash for inspiration, when they thrashed Leinster 45-20 to register their first win over the Irish side since 2009. Scarlets outscored Leinster 7 tries to 2 on that occasion, but big winger George North, who netted a brace that day, will not be playing this time as he has shifted base to Northampton.

Since then, normal business has resumed for Leinster, who beat Scarlets twice in the Heineken Cup and demolished them 32-5 in the returning league fixture in February. Leinster has some problems out of their own- they look a little thin in the backs, with Luke Fitzgerald likely to feature at outside-centre in the absence of the legendary Brian O’Driscoll. The clubs no longer have Fionn Carr and Andrew Conway on their books, with injuries also forcing Eoin O’Malley to retire. Will Scarlets emulate last season’s opening day triumph against Leinster?
