So what’s it going to be for the first game against Gloucester?

I think our internationals have got to come back in. Tough call on those that have stepped up during the AIs.

I don't believe LCD, Woody or Jonny Hill are game fit yet, I could be wrong. No room for Salmon, Townsend, S Hill, Shorty, O'Flats??

I think last week showed that the pack on the night wasn't mobile enough so depending on the weather I would expect us to tinker with the pack for certain and I would like to see Lawday start but the bench is better balanced with him on it and also with Whitts on there. Depends if Dave is fit I suppose?
Still worth sticking with Joe at out half as he had little or no ball to work with last week and I don't expect Gloucester to be so hot in defence.

I agree with Zyder, but, White has not impressed in the last 2 games so I want to see Maunder start, he has proved he can handle the big games and if he doesn’t start getting game time, we could lose him. There are several teams who I think would snap him up. For me, Maunder and Simmonds are our future at half back and also have international potential. Not sure what the position is with their contracts, but we cannot risk losing them.

I think Skinner will start. If Ewers in doubt may be Dennis at 6 if not on the bench.

+1
I think Skinner strengthens our lineout so I would like to see him start.
