I like it surpised that Rory Brand miss out on selection, would love to see get more game time. Also could have been a great game for Matt Williams to play gutted he's injured. Great to see Keatley is back. Hope Ben Loader can have a game like he did last was absoultely robbed to not get try of the week for last weeks game!

Standard powerful forwards and solid back line set up. Should be a regulation win.

Personally don't like mclean at 12 as think he has been one the most consistent performers all season in the back 3.

He's been at the club for at least the last couple of weeks going by his social media posts.



Sponsoring Ollie Hassell-Collins for the 2018/19 season.

That’s a decent Scottish side, we’ll need to be on our game.

He's probably here to spy on our academy.

Looks like we're sticking to our traditional plan of out-muscling them up front and then relying on Keatley's boot with a few flashes from Loader and, I hope, Freddy Veitokani. Michael van Vuuren's set piece and line-out throwing will be pretty crucial to this plan, so let's hope he has had a couple of weeks to bed in.
