Williams wants to push on

Scarlets scrum-half Rhodri Williams believes his team can find the away form that they have been lacking to push on in the Guinness PRO12.

The Welsh region hope to ensure the coveted top six spot that would ensure they make European Rugby Champions Cup action for next season.

Speaking ahead of Scarlets’ LV= Cup clash against London Irish on Saturday, Williams says that the region is heavily focused on the upcoming Guinness PRO12 fixtures and using the LV= Cup campaign as a springboard to the coming weeks on the field.

“The Guinness PRO12 is obviously the huge focus now, as we can’t dwell on what’s happened in the past. So we need to turn our thoughts to the rest of the season and getting into that top six,” said the 21-year-old scrum-half.

“We have a couple of games in the LV= Cup now, and we want to build some good momentum going into our next league fixture at home to Connacht.

“Now we can push on in the Guinness PRO12 and look to qualify as high as we can for Europe next year.

“I’m not sure why our form has been so mixed. We have a very good record at home but we are struggling away a bit at the moment.

“I don’t know why that is, but when we play at home we seem to lift our game and we need to do that when we go on the road to beat the same teams away. It’s just a mentality thing, I think.”
