Excited for this one. A strong team with CP and AM making their first starts. Hoping we can put in a big performance and get a W up in Coventry against a decent Wasps line-up.
C'mon Bris!

Well looks to me like we are playing the team we currently expect to put out against Exeter, so that they have a tough game together before that. C'mon Bris!!

I would go yes. Regardless though his performance last weekend made it hard not to pick him.

Tricky this as players need match fitness/practice.
But on a very wet and windy weekend in a nothing competition,I will be very unhappy if we pick up unnecessary injuries to any important players prior to the real battles in the next few weeks.
Would have played a more second team myself.

I know what you were saying Wickerman but they haven't played a proper meaningful game for weeks and need a run out for such a big game as next week against Exeter. Without it they will be out of the game by half time.

Well I hope the key players do 40 odd minutes and then wholesale replacements. Can't afford injuries in this competition

Just seen Exeterís team for today,only the scrum half playing from their last prem game so resting their whole team.........from one of the arguments for us playing our first team tomorrow in the above posts,does that mean They will be out of the game by halftime.
Somehow I doubt it.
Hope all our players come through unscathed tomorrow.
Interesting how currently the most successful team in the premiership at the moment are taking a different attitude to team selection this week than us.........I guess after next Sunday we will better judge the merits of those decisions.

Good team, I like the fact playing a strong team with many expected to play against Ex. Should be sharp for the big one next weekend.
Come on Bris!!!

You might remember our recent past from AR and Hilly's time when we rested the team and then played disastrously for the next few games. Injury is an ever present risk in sport but the team have to hit the next game battle hardened and match fit.
