Just seen that myself. Providing they are all able to play of course, we should have a decent team out on Saturday.

Ben Earl released by U20s suggesting he will be in the 23 this weekend too.

Chris Wyles now confirmed as back this weekend so winger wise we are in great shape.

Well with news of Vainula back from injury (exceptionally early as I thought he was put for a month?

I originally said in the preview a likely line up:

1.Barrington
2.Spurling
3.Figallo
4.Isiekwe
5.Skelton
6.Clark
7.Burger
8.Wray
9.Spencer
10.Loz
11.Earle
12.Barritt
13.Tompkins
14.Williams
15.Goode

Replacements
16.McElroy
17.Thomspon-Stringer
18.Longbottom
19.Flanagan
20.Earl
21.Stirzaker
22.Malins
23.Bosch

So given news of Injury returns

I'd change 20 to Vainula and 18 to Koch otherwise as is

If fit get Sione in the side! In his initial run arounds for the club he looks useful

^ This.
Given I wasn't sure when some injuries were back and who Jones would keep I thought this might be somewhat of a skellington (rather than Skelton) crew. Obviously wait for the side to be picked but potentially looks like we can put a good squad out and some of the young guns will get a go.

If we can it makes sense to rest Chris Wyles again this week whilst we have Nathan and Liam available and fit. Either or both of them could get called up at a moment's notice so I would select tactically just in case.

He got a neck injury while training for France last week. No idea how long he will be out.

The french medics said Tolafua will miss all six nations & I was under the impression Scott
spurling was injured so Tom Lindsay would play?

Sione is in a feature bid so he must be starting

You may be right but I think it will be Clark - Burger - Wray with Sione on the bench.

Whatever it is it looks better than we thought at the beginning of the week.

Must have been a partial miss diagnosis for Vailanu surely? Thatís a blisteringly quick return, even for our known physios of healing

Lack of big ball carriers I think they will start SV and Wray at 6. We shall see!

Skelton, Wray, Tolufa and Burger (plus Baz) as ball carriers seem enough to me
