That's a strong lineup!

I honestly think that's our 1 and 2 FH's now at 10 and 23.

It'll be interesting to see if Gary Graham can continue from where he left off last week....

Great to see Michael Young back. Interested to see how the back row get on. Hope Flood looks more at home at 10. It didnít look like he enjoyed playing second fiddle to Hodgson last week.

Strong looking lineup there, it's going to be a tough one like most French teams they have a huge pack. smiling smiley

Blimey! I wasn't expecting that. Looks like we are taking this competition seriously. I assume the younger lads will get their boots dirty in the AW cup. It would certainly be good to see us compete in this cup without endangering our Premiership form. If the injury gods are kind to us me might just manage it.

I hope Michael Young puts his running boots on when he gets on.

Hit the edges and get in behind them.

Decent looking team, but it will be tough to get anything out of the game. Not sure Michael Young fits with the game the Falcons are now trying to play. It needs a scrum-half with a quick pass.

Been impressed with Stuart though and happy with him as second to Takalua. Nice to have strength in depth at scrum half too.
And that's a strong looking team. Onwards and upwards.

Itíll be a tough afternoon. Will need to come out the blocks fast. Bordeaux are having a good start to the season and have been racking up a fair few points. If the boys perform itíll be an entertaining game.

Good to see Noah at FH. Need someone in control who has experience of playing against French sides. I am in France, but at opposite end of country. Will listen online I hope.

Genuinely great that at last a cup game is taken seriously. Very powerful looking line up, let's see how they get on.

As an older stager (not that old, but you get the gist!) I've seen the huge benefits a cup run can bring, here's hoping this season will see such a run.

Really excited about this comp.
