Tuilagi too, and I suspect Ben is only on the bench because the cupboard is bare

Not a bad team, good to be testing the six nations replacements and some game time for others really no point in using players we don't have to cover the knocks add a few back in next week to keep the team evolving.

Yes, stronger team next week, as they will want to win at home.

Suspect it is a test run for the 6N's games.

Not bothered about winning this one then!

Good chance for some players to show what they can do.

Really that is the team that will most likely be playing during the 6N's with Holmes a 50/50 and Kalamafoni/Thompson/Denton hopefully at 8.

So the chances are Murphy might be wanting these two games to get them to gel.

Can tomorrow’s game be used as the rest game/time under the EPS agreement? Thought it had to be premiership?

Good thinking, Batmen

Be interesting to see if Blake = brake [1/2], break [5/2] or flake [11/2]



The referee is the final arbitrary

Simon, I can see no logical difference between resting for one comp or another, so you’re probably right
