Llanelli points machine Stephen Jones knows exactly how important his kicking has been to the all-round success of the team.
In the two previous European ties between Llanelli and Leicester, Jones has contributed every point for the Scarlets. If the Wales fly half were to repeat that feat on Sunday when the teams meet in the semi-final in Nottingham, it would be a first for Heineken Cup rugby. No other player has scored all their team's points in three games in one season.
"If it happened again, so be it, but I would only celebrate the fact if we had won the game." said Jones
"I've been fortunate enough to kick the goals, but it's also disappointing because in the two games we haven't scored any tries. Leicester are very strong and we're going to have to play more of an open game and look to be more creative behind."
In the first pool match Leicester beat Llanelli 12-9 at Wellford Road, Jones scoring three penalties. In the return match at Stradey Park in January, Jones thrilled the 10,000 crowd with a 100% kicking record. His eight penalties saw Llanelli though to the quarter finals for the fifth time in seven years. .Jones was the hero again when Llanelli travelled to Bath in the quarter final. Again his place kicking was immaculate, 8 from 8 and a last minute drop goal to see the Scarlets through.
Jones has had another impressive season. In all competitions this year he has scored 354 points. Furthermore, he is the top scorer in this year's Heineken Cup with 105.
In the Welsh Scottish League his 120 points have helped Llanelli to the top of the table, and the 35 points bagged in the Principality Cup, have seen the side through to the final in the Millennium Stadium.
And the Welshman is relishing the chance to play in the in two Millennium Stadium cup finals.
"It's probably the best rugby stadium in the world. It's always been a huge buzz when you play for Wales at home in the Millennium Stadium.
"If you asked any rugby player in the Northern Hemisphere what it would mean to make it to the Heineken Cup final, I think they'd all say the same thing. It would be a great achievement and a great honour."
As the countdown continues for RWC2015, Tournament Chief Executive Debbie Jevans visited the Millennium Stadium to discuss preparations for the eight matches and reveal the positive news that 100,000 tickets for games at the home of Welsh rugby have sold in the last seven days.
Jason Harries is targeting a first win on the World Series circuit this season with Wales. The series returns to action this weekend in Dubai where Harries is part of a team hoping to build from its efforts in round one in October.
Wales skipper Jevon Groves says his side have addressed a few points from Gold Coast and aim to 'hit the ground running' in the next two rounds of the World Series, kicking off with this weekend in Dubai before heading off to South Africa next week.
Wales Sevens manager Steff Thomas is hopeful his side can build from a quarter-final spot in the opening round of the World Series in Australia when his side take part in the forthcoming double header in Dubai and South Africa.
