Looks like it will be...
9. Cobus/ Mitchell / Davies
10. Biggar/ Grayson
11. Nairyavoro/ Pisi
12. Francis/ Burrell/ Hutchinson
13. Nafi/ Symonds/ Dingwall
14. Collins/ Kellaway
15. Harry/ Ace

Thats not a bad backs squad. And ive not considered the likes of Hutchinson or Strachan.

Potentially a player in each position under 24. Shows great signs for the future

Added Davies (recent signing) in at 9.

For a very long time saints played a fairly limited game, forward domination particularly in set piece, followed by a short pass from 10 to a bulky 12 who put his head down and charged at the defence. reset repeat look for penalty and take points. Fairly simplistic but it worked. There where attempts to play a more expansive game we tried with Geraghty, Lamb etc but the skills and mindset just wasn't there, it did not work.
I fear it also did not gel because it was alien to the coaching set up and the way they structured the game.
This became even more evident when our forwards couldn't get on the front foot, did not compete at the breakdown, and started to backpedal in the scrum. There was no plan B.
We also lacked pace and power in some of not only the forwards but noticeable in the back line.
My reason for optimism, of course it may take its time to work through to match day, is a new coach with an eye for attacking rugby, see his present team.
A back line of pace and power, I would play Harry at 13 with his skills and Kellaway outside him they would frighten defences.
All I want to see is a rugby playing game plan that shows where the team are heading, we will lose a few along the way, in the early days probably more than we win, there have been a lot of changes.
But I for one can not wait.

What about the lad Worley, signed from Racing? He looks a prospect.

Forgot about Worley. As for Harry, im sure he could play 13 but i tried not to repeat players.

If Harry is to play 13, then just 13! Not a few games at 15, a few at 13, a few at 10 and a couple somewhere else.

Thanks Saint Swill. You, Wilson P and just about everybody else seemed to get it. Of couse Biggar doesn't have anything to prove.
You confidence is misplaced Tedge so if you don't like it please don't start the personal abuse.
