Richmond match

J-Lo's team selection:

Stevie McColl will start at full back in place of Chris Elder who is serving a three match ban. Fred Burdon misses out with a neck injury so Tom Casson comes back into the starting line up. Josh Bainbridge is also ruled out with a cheekbone fracture which he suffered in the teamís last game against Hartpury.
On the bench Mike Mayhew returns after completing his loan spell with Quins.
15. Stevie McColl
14. George Watkins
13. Andy Forsyth
12. Tom Casson
11. Louis Brown
10. Pete Lucock
9. Alex Davies
8. Richard Beck
7. Richard Mayhew
6. Ben West
5 Mike Myerscough
4. Jack Whetton
3. Kevin Bryce
2. Joe Buckle
1. Marc Thomas
16. Mike Mayhew
17. James Thraves
18. Charlie Beech
19. Matt Smith
20. Trystan Lloyd
21. Will Homer
22 Callum Irvine

So Pistol Pete holds onto the fly-half shirt whilst Calum Irvine sits on the bench. Mike Mayhew is now back from his loan spell from Quins meaning Mike Bidgood has some more wage money to stump up. Not sure if MM actually played whilst down south, but welcome back.

I don't know why we are still playing Pete at 10 when the we have Davies and Irvine fit. Answers on a postcard? Cos I am lost with it!
If the attacking performance mirrors that of the last home game I will be extremely disappointed.

Maybe if whoever does the post match interviews asked Jimmy?

Just a thought ;-)

Expect some jet-lagged interviewers; not sure when the Rhino's plane lands from Melbourne.

I think that flight sargeant Leeming should stand in (if available, of course, without jeopardising the defence of the realm) and ask some really piercing questions; not like the "well you played really well and what a shame the nasty opposition scored more tries than us".
Or is John Humphryes (ultimate grumpy old man, to which I aspire) available?
