When are the U20 games? IIRC, in the past, they have clashed with the Low Value games? Which, if this remains the case, reignites the debate as to whether playing for Tigers in a cup game might be a better for our players' development than an U20 game?

Now whether they would get selected to play for Tigers is a different debate!!

Don't know but having more players in the U20's is a good draw for our academy.

Think we have the same amount of players in than Saints and wasps combined.


We should be able to have a good squad for the AWC anyway.

Anglo-Welsh Cup games get priority over the U-20 6Ns, so if we want them we can pick them. Good sign for the World Cup in the summer.

I'm not convinced on Lewis but I rate the Hardwick and Olowofela. I think Olowofela might get in our first team for the Euro games, he's looked very dangerous in the A team. Hardwick must be pushing J.Ford very close as he seems a cool customer and accurate kicker.

fixtures:

Italy (A), Feb 2 (AWC v Wasps 4/2/18)
Wales (H), Feb 9 (Prem v Glous 10/2/17)
Scotland (A), Feb 23 (Prem v Sarries 25/2/17)
France (A), Mar 9 No game/ AWC semi
Ireland (H), Mar 16 (@ the Ricoh) No game/AWC Final

Olowefela not in the euro squad at the moment. Can we swap players before this round?

Not a single one from Bath speaks volumes about Bruce's strategy which I think is very disappointing, and compare this to Worcester.
