Best we can put out at the moment, hope to be proven wrong but suspect the losing run will continue to 8 before Worcester at home where I would fully expect a first win in circa 2 and a half months!

cant help thinking Ben Earl should be getting more first team action whilst Billy is out

Excellent to see Rhodes back, the way we played last week, the belief is back, oh it's Christmas so why not go to Welford Road and grab a win!

Disappointed that Brad is not back this week as we need his captaincy and ability.

His return to play protocol obviously has not gone well, lets hope its not a long lay off.

Good to see Mike back in the fold.

First impressions are pleasure at seeing Rhodes back in the 23 but slight frustration at seeing Maitland and to a lesser extent Bosch backed again. Unless he's offski Earle needs a run of games and when another payer is out of form would feel like a good opportunity to give him a run.

Feels like Heresy even to suggest it but given the breakdown of our midfield defence in the past couple of games and the threat there from Leicester would Farrell at 12 and leading the defence (as he does for England) have been an option?

Our backrow has lacked balance in Billy and Rhodes absence. Playing Isiekwe helps slightly but we have struggled most when we have had two "workhorses" at flanker. We really need another proper carrying option there and not sure that is Earl who has struggled to make an impression at Premiership level. Maybe he just needs a run of game? maybe he's not ready yet.

Will watch the game from (Sm159)

If Jackson got a knock we would be knackered at 8 its been a problem position for a while (not sure Burger playing there was a great success)
I would have liked Earle,Spencer,Thompson-Stringer & Ben Earl,all to have had more playing time

Agree about the issue at 8 Highbury Saracen just don't think Earl is the answer. Wasn't Thompson-Stringer a flanker before he moved into the front row?

Agree about giving all those player time just feel Earl is the least ready for a step up. I look forward to him proving me wrong this weekend smiling smiley

On the ‘Fish it says "Schalk Burger replaces Calum Clark at openside flanker" but in the list he doesn't, which is correct?

In the email, Clark was both starting and on the bench!

They don't like CC at Tigs so perhaps it's a wind up.
