Shall I pre-empt the usual "No Estelles?"
Takes me back to the days of "Wot, no Digger?"

And I'd completely forgotten North would be available.

Happy with that. None of those players are being over-played. Ace maybe an exception but Foden needs a rest and Harry is on England duty so there are few alternatives given it's Collins first game in 2 months.

Good luck lads.

Mainly a mixture of underplayed players and players on their way back from injury. Not a bad approach. Really think we should have rested Api this week instead of last.

Looking forward to seeing what that back row can do.

Gosh thatís strong, not what I had expected. Interesting that Eadie is no where to be seen, did he pick up a knock vs Sarries that Iíve missed.

One person who I am looking forward to see have some game time is Clare. Heís looked like a good prospect and hopefully he can get some good game time.

After Estelles inability or lack of inclination to chase down A W Jones against ospreys Iíd opine heís got some work to do to get back into the side.

Mitch Eadie got smashed in a tackle by Itoje just after he'd passed . He was limping badly for some time and the scrum really suffered with him unable to push strongly. He went off and we ended up with a hooker at 8.

Reece Marshall has overtaken Charlie Clare in the pecking order.

James Craig injured again. Poor chap can't seem to stay fit.

my only concern is what happens if we get an injury to a centre.

I guess Collins would come on at fullback or wing, and we'd have to shoehorn Ace or North in at 13.

Personally, i like to see a little more utility on the bench which we would see had we had the likes of Francis or Harry available. Neither is really an option with Myler and Grayson although i believe that Grayson has played at 15 on the odd occasion.

but fingers crossed we'll come through unscathed

I donít think Estelles is flavour of the month defensively. When he played a few weeks ago (Falcons I think) he jumped out of the line and we conceded a try, the coached were really not happy with him. No doubt he is exciting with ball in hand.

Shame about Eadie if he is injured, not having a lot of luck.

Like the team think itís a good balance, Saleís looks decent too could be a good game

Are any of our players flavour of the month defensively? Without doubt it has cost us many games this year, I think to not pick one for defensive failings of the many would be harsh

I donít think Luther would get picked if that were the case.

I don't think Eadie is injured because he's not listed as being injured on the t'offy

Looking at the backline, 4 of the 7 played in the Premiership Final we won in 2014.

He's listed at the bottom of the story as being unavailable for selection.

Him and Piers have had rotten luck with injuries since joining us.

Rotten luck. Or poor management of the players conditioning?

Flippin heck. If they'd have been played for 80 mins each game but they've only just joined us. Piers's latest was due to a poor tackle by the oppo player.
