I completely forgot Vermeulen and Kirsten! Oh well they’ll get their places soon!

Vermeulen and Kirsten would have to be in my 23. I just don't want the job of deciding who wouldn't be!

I wonder how big a loss Nic White will be, especially with Bristol now with the likes of Radradra, Sinckler, Earl, Malins etc

Nic White is a massive loss, but in my opinion hey haven't got the front five resources, or arguably back row options in depth.

On rethink Vermeulen in for Armand, Kirsten on the bench with Armand in place of Dennis and do without a replacement 10 relying on Slade or Devoto to step in if necessary.

Injuries and fitness may make the job easier(?) , but two of our best players pre-lockdown were Elvis and Kirsten. Even so Elvis will only make the warm-up squad, but Kirsten must challenge the 15, let alone the 23, and Rob has always found it difficult to exclude Ian Whitten.
Any of the names suggested could be permutated , but perhaps the most important, and pivotal, position is the scrum-half. Has Townsend regained his confidence and form (he's had little chance to properly test and mold it) ; will SH-C do likewise, as well as integrating into a new team ; and then there is the legend's son, or sons if you want to push it!
Without knowing the fitness and form of the 9's my guess for a first game back goes to Jack.
