Looks good to me.

Looking forward to seeing Pincus get a start, and bringing George Smith on as a replacement rather than starting could make quite an impact?

Pretty good side. Unfortunately Iím going to be a fair weather supporter this week and avoid it as weather looks positively foul and Harlequins game was not fun sat there out in the rain in the Lansdown

I would guess that there will be so many empty seats at the rear of every block, that you should stay dry, with or without alcoholic refreshment.

The people I saw being stopped were trying to move into the dry seats in W13 which are the most expensive seats.

Probably would have had more luck in W12/W11.

Something came up so won't be going tomorrow so it got me thinking; I know some of the challenge cup games get TV coverage, are we getting any at all? Worst case I'll watch Wigan vs Warrington and follow on here so could be worse.

Aside from that rotation will be a good thing, team should put in a decent shift and that injured list is worrying but impressive we can still field a decent side all things considered. Welcome back Biagi, know he was looking forward to this from his Twitter after fixtures were first announced.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that Centre partnership... when it performs!

Zebre have had some good victories his season and the weather will be a leveller so I think itíll be a tough game. Donít be surprised if that team doesnít get the win.

After last weeks debacle I won't be going. If the team can't be bothered turning up then neither can I.

"When it preforms" as with any other partnership, IMO it would more of a case of not being predictable. Using this tournament to bring change in preparation for when we don't have S piutau or Pisi ..

Youíre seriously comparing Wasps being humped by the incredible European champions (one of the greatest club sides ever imho) to us getting humiliated by a lower prem side. Baffling!

Agree, that same combination that looked bad (along with the other 13 players) last week I thought were impressive against Northampton. Still think they are our best centres and like the power of Leuia on the wing.

My point was that with squad seeming tired and both: siale being not exactly young and will becoming quite a precious resource, i was hoping to see us mix it up a bit and potentially try a new combo. i geuss there are 3 more weeks to come where we can do this so no harm no foul

It's not my spirit that's the problem.
