This is it, here we go. One thing is certain, if we kick the ball away against this team, they will return it with a purpose and with interest. Having said that, I don't think we are going to do anything stupid now. A win will take us to a last game decider, a bp win will put us in the driving seat. Whether we are on the pitch, on the bench or in the stand we have but one purpose, get behind the team and get them over the line, with all due respects to Deano, Wells and Newcastle.
Well as idle intimated, no place to hide now, if we have any ambition to win the payoffs we have to win and win big tomorrow night, no excuses, as near a first fifteen as we have put out for a long while , at home , last home game of the season , Friday night lights. If we lose this then Skippy is a bust kangaroo.
Tigers getting a TBP and preventing Falcons from getting a LBP is an extra 2 league points which might have some say at the end of Saturday next week.
Plus, whilst Tigers have their first choice 23 pretty much on that team sheet, Falcons do not. At home too, we should win. But, it's sport, and, on paper, we should have beaten Saints last time out and didn't.
If only the game was played on paper instead of grass!
The only argument for a change to that 23 might be a fit Gareth Owen for Mat Tait on the bench and that's a close discussion tbh. Malouf for Holmes? I'd go for the latter in a tight big game only for his greater experience in 15s. Not sure where Tino would fit?
When was the last time we were just discussing who is sat on the bench?!!
