Very strong bench from Saints. Looking to finish us off in the last 20. Only third prem match in charge for Ref, you would have thought this match would have called for a more experienced Ref.

They have made 8 changes to the side that lost to Bristol, some forced. They have packed their bench so we need to establish a good lead in the first 60 minutes before they send on the likes of Reinach.

Pleased to see Alec back.
Puzzled as to Saints selection, that is a very strong bench from them. Really happy to see Reinach not starting, he brings something extra to their game.

Doable on paper but we have been done at home by lesser sides than Saints this season...fingers crossed.

Most saintly folk think you will win fairly easily. We are on 5th and 6th choice locks so no engine in the scrum so I can see you winning penalties, kicking for the corner and driving over.
Still if we turn up there is always a chance.(Sm128)

Our lock situation following more injuries is shown by Glynn joining us this week from Ospreys on short term loan and immediately into the match day 23. Ah well travelling down anyway so hoping for a good day out.

We do also have our own issues. front row and back line, not sure Saints have the monopoly on absentees.
Saints have a very strong bench, as mentioned we will need a lead, if we win then its well done.
