So Gigena to TH is quite interesting.
Hardwick should be starting.

Outside that quite happy with the starting lineup for a first preseason game.

So in the build up to the Prem season starting, we give our LV cup team a run out!

OK, I sort of understand why but I've never really got why the club bother to arrange a series of preseason games and then not use them to get the first team a chance to gel. Maybe next week?

Well we can't play England Internationals also give Internationals in general a rest, so it would never be the first team anyway.

Well he has no club currently so can't be a loan.

Was rumoured to be joining a while ago, could be a trial thing as potential cover depending on Toomua and Manu situations.

I wondered about Macken - may be a trial?

And Joe Ford!(Sm164)

Like AW says - why isn't Hardwick starting this one?(Sm95)

Brendan Macken another genius signing.

I have never felt this flat or dread filled about a season ever.

Blimey. It's all gone completely Vivien Leigh on here.

A born optimist I am looking forward to the season and hope the small margins have all been improved over the summer

We will hopefully see the difference a full preseason and a fining tuning of the group by Bakewell has made on our forwards. If not a big step up from where we were at the start of last season, then I might start to worry.

I'd hope the lineout has improved. If that's still Panty McPantsface, I might end up clutching the pearls and reaching for the smelling salts myself.

As a born pessimist, I'm still looking forward to the season, but I hope we improve by quite a large margin, especially in the lineout. And I 've managed to wangle two trips down in September Falcons and Warriors. Having witnessed last season possibly the worst home performance I've ever seen against the latter, I'm hoping for a little revenge. But it's the hope that kills you Stopsy.
