Great to see Will Welch back after the birth of his first child ..Congratulations WW.
IMO Big miss when he does not play.

Glad to see Common get a game, as he is well overdue a chance to prove himself.

As I have said elsewhere, I believe that Brett is the best 10, we have at the club and should have been our starting fly half at the start of the campaign.

Echo the congratulations to Will Welch above!

I see Ampthill have a few weíll known veterans in their pack 3 of them being Maama Molitika aged 45 , Shane Tongauiha aged 38 and the youngster Dave Ward aged 34 all very good players in their pomp.

Even when the pack gets shuffled it looks strong.

The backs, other than the centre partnership, donít look very frightening.

After the utter shambles that was last week's game, it will be interesting to see if Connon at 10, and Welch in the pack will settle things down.

Wouldn't it have been better to give young Obonna or someone that spot on the bench instead of Owen?
Just a thought. Aside from that its a team that should get the desired win.

Was thinking along those lines with a couple of them myself Geordie but I didn't want to bore myself or anyone else going on about young players!

Ha ha ha i just think its a missed opportunity to give some other youngsters some extremely valuable first team rugby rather than a guy whos probably not going to be with us for long.

6 points clear of 2nd place now as Pirates got a LBP. Great opportunity to extend our lead tomorrow.

Intrigued to know why Alex Tait has fallen from grace.
Seems to be good enough for the A team but doesn't get a sniff at the first team ( as an alternative to Arscott?)

Can't be age as he's actually younger than Arscott!

Obonna played today against the Bulls. We will be paying substantially more cash for Owen then Obonna so we may as well use him. Rotation is good and giving youngsters a chance but too much rotation can also be negative too.

Ah i agree..i dont actually like too much rotation. But i just think certain opportunities need to be taken in this league.
