Sigh.

Predictable. What we see in Traynor is totally beyond me. Why we persevere with those locks regardless of how they play is beyond me. Why we want Ford starting ahead of Toomua at 10 is beyond me.

I'm not particularly convinced by that Gloucester team though so we've got a decent shot at the game.

Ford hasn't played with Toomua this season, so perhaps having him outside him will take of a some of the pressure and bring out his best. I hope otherwise it's last chance saloon really.

Rizzo was pretty smashed up front by the Wasps youngsters. (granted Baumann prob didn't help him) but he hardly put his hand up.

Really don't know what Harry Simmons and Harry Wells have to do to get a starting shirt.

Looks like Greg will be playing the full 80 minutes.

For me, start Toomua at 10 and bring Owen off the bench into the centres.

Think the school boy lock would have had a pretty big impact too.

That was my biggest worry with the Wasps team selection. Good performances ignored as "only the AW", bad ones noted down and held against players in future. Gigena's been a bit of a nothing in his few games but that's still better than Traynor, at least he's young enough to kick on. Hopefully reserve looshead won't be the decisive factor.

The undroppable Kitchener whilst Dom Barrow on the naughty step it would seem.

Gigena was good IMO in the game v Cardiff.

Wonder since Mulipola and Cilliers both can play LH if Traynor will be 4th choice LH in the end.

Barrow is still injured, but could be fit next week.
Whether the fact he is leaving impacts selection we will find out after that, unless recovery has taken a knock back ?

Traynor comes on. Gets "injured" at first scrum so gets replaced by a replaced/rested Logo? About time we started abusing the system like others. Did you know your head is by your knee?

Not too sure why so many think that Toomua is the answer at FH ?
Presumably he isn't interested, or doesn't look good enough in training ?
Unless the coaches haven't even considered it ?

We have an international 10 who we say is a 10 or 12 on our website but we won't play him at 10?!

Daft

Good enough to wear ten for Oz and Brumbies but not Tigers?

At last, Tiggs - someone questioning the Toomua at 10 idea. He may have played there before, but I was never convinced when it was tried in Super Rugby. In addition to general play, his goal kicking has always been incredibly streaky, prone to disastrous off-days.

Ok, fair enough. But it's got to be worth a try hasn't it? None of us know how it would go but we need to shake things up, don't we?

What price losing by 20 points or more?

I need a consolation from this impending debacle.
9 and 10 is not a combination to inspire anyone, we have better alternatives and still we are passing up on players who deserve to be starting with the 6 Nations in progress. I would be starting Simmons at 9 and TPN as Hooker. If we have to kick from hand I would rather Toomua was the option and not Ford.
We seem to be persisting with Traynor on the bench and any injuries to any of our front 3 will mean we call up a player who is no way near this level and a liability in the scrum.
