Apart from Santi, that is a pretty much first choice 23. Shame no room for Tom O'F who for me along with Sean Lonsdale have been really good, having been drafted in to some big games this season due to injuries.

It's great that we are putting out a side that is pretty much the first XV as things stand, hopefully this will get the side match ready and used to the combinations before the semi finals.

It is also fantastic to see Sam Simmonds named on the bench, hopefully he can get a good 25 minutes or so on the pitch and all being well perhaps challenge for a starting spot for the semi finals.

I am far more confident now seeing this side!

Sarries reserves out against Wuss. So who would you prefer for the semi, Saints or Quins ?

Agree with all of the above.

And it sounds like we might have Santi back for the semi too!

The only missing link for me is Lees. Watching the Euro final I feel we could do with his physicality to combat the Sarries pack.

Rob said we would be putting out a strong 23.....looks good to me. Great to see Sam Simmonds and Mcskinner in the 23 and Santi on the verge of a return!
No injuries please and let's get that Chiefs Mojo back.



I drink and forget stuff!

Its a very very good Saints team who are on form with lots of players hitting their straps.. if we play to our potential im sure Well do fine but well need to be at 110% to win ..
Reinach and Biggar are a real handful.. possibly one of the prems best 9/10 combos..
its going to be emotional!!

I agree with the above. Quite frankly if we swapped 9/10s then we would win.

Great to have Sam Simmonds back in the squad...him being fresh for the playoffs could make things very interesting indeed. REgarding Saints or Quins in the playoffs...I'm not massively fussed...either side are quite capable of giving us a match so que sera sera.

The really important game is next week. Saracens and Gloucester have rested the front line players this week (because there us nothing resting in their games in reality) it will be Interesting to see whether that helps or hinders them.
