Shame about Kyle but best not to take any risks.

What a world in which we can be first and second choice inside centres missing and still have an established pairing and a replacement!

How exciting must it be for the academy and development players seeing selections like that.

Hopefully they will prove Murphy's trust is well deserved on the pitch.

I admire Murphy for blooding the young fellas,it's what needs to be gone with the RWC approaching and never would've happened under MoC! It could get messy but I'm sure they will be all the better for it.

Hardwick didn't look of place for 50 minutes last week and Jordan took his medicine and bounced back. I am really excited about what this says about the club's direction under Geordan.

Is this an "unlikely away win so let's give it a lash" selection?

Good to see Owen back in the team

Agreed, let's hope he can stay fit enough to get into form, he has impressed in short bursts

Shame Toomua is going because imo our best MF is Harrison,Toomua,Owen,Tuilagi

Ford last weekend played the best game from a Tigers fly half in a long time IMO.

We will see though if it was a "bounce" or it's a constant thing.

A lot will depend on whether we can get parity up front. Their back row is a hefty unit but will it be fast? Gaskell plays more like a flanker in open play. I hope Bateman can recreate what Ellis did to Brookes

Exciting looking side, fancy we can cause an upset here.

I'm not sure that we should be placing too much hope on outlasting them.

I think we are gonna have to score 35+ to win this one but it should be a cracking spectacle

Really encouraging selection. Trusting the youth is great to see.

I guess Reffell is injured as you'd think he'd be preferred to Lewis given the other players picked in the back five of the scrum.

I'd have been tempted to blood one more of the youngsters in the starting team to strengthen the bench.
