Ma'afu will hopefully bring some of the fiji form with him.
Injuries and bans have been tough on us.

Like the look of the team on the whole.

Add Bateman, Veainu and Eastmond to the 23 and would be pretty happy.

Not betting our chances v Racing though.

Disappointed for Sam but otherwise a good 23 on paper, can they actually produce on the park?

Tough game but the side looks decent, glad to see Evans into the matchday squad and having the option of Thompson, O'Connor and Evans in the same backrow.

Nice to see us trying something different in the pack, at least we'll have an idea of whether it might work or not.

I like the back 5,our best second row partnership and Williams is a better lock than Fitzy and Fitzy the better six out the two so I get that call too.

I like the team and the bench split. But the Racing team is ridiculously good so will be a long day i suspect.

Is this Ben Young’s missing a game as per the England agreement?? Can only appear ffor last 20 or something??

Is White a better player right now than Harrison. Is this Ben White development or in on merit?
Is Harrison on his way perhaps???

Otherwise happy enough with the names...will have to see how they perform.
Racing will have been looking at our defensive performances with glee I Suspect!

We've got no chance so why not blood a youngster in the big, big time.

You never know it might just work.

Is Kitchener injured or have the coaching set up recognised his poor form?

Less than 40 mins.

Which makes two first half inijuries to outside backs very interesting, would you put White on the wing or Evans in the centre? Hypothetical hopefully!

I'd guess White on merit, he seems highly thought of by the clique.

Not going to be an enjoyable weekend for our travelling supporters. Riots, tourist stuff all shut, bad weather and a likely tonking on the pitch!

26-14 at half time.

Attack looks lively at time. Defence is absolutely terrible, so there is no chance of keeping the score to a beatable number.

Better teams than Tigers will get thrashed at Racing, and so I am quite happy with the performance so far considering the yellow cost us 2 tries. Without it this night still be a close game.
