Players we need most

Of the 18 or so players absent through injury or international call ups, my selection of the 3 that we need back most urgently to help us at this time are:

Vincent Koch
Michael Rhodes
Jamie George

Interested to see alternative suggestions, but no more than 3 please

What other positions would we play him in if we had three billies?

I'd rotate them. One at 8, one at 20 and the third refuelling in Nando's. I think a fresh Billy2 replacing Billy1 on 55 minutes might demoralise any opposition.

In answer to Gerry's question I haven't a clue! I think we'll need more than 3 if we're to win either competition and I'm not sure I could argue against anyone's choices if forced to pick 3 - we're missing a huge amount of top quality talent.

Out of interest who do you see playing at 7 from the returning players?

I personally the only 7 in our squad is Burger, as this is a gap we havent filled since Will retired.

We have 2 6s (Callum and Mike) and 2 8s (Billy and Sione) with Jackson covering both, I know I am missing players but they are the 1st team ones in my head.
But I struggle to see who plays at 7 when all our backrow is fit, as harsh on Jackson as that is.

Chris 87 imho our best Back row is Rhodes 6, Burger 7, and Billy 8 with Wray on the bench

The 3 players who would be useful are Billy Owen and Rhodes for me.. game changers and match Winners (Maro only just misses the cut)

Seany_Boy0511 - Sorry but I cannot see how Burger is a more valuable asset than Wray - Wray carries better, has a better engine and very, very rarely makes a mistake unlike Burger who is susceptible to forcing an offload that just isn't there.

I agree that we have missed Will and having a genuine 7 who's strong over the ball, unfortunately Joel Conlon has been unlucky with injuries otherwise I thought he could have stepped up to the 1st team more this year. I really think we need a Hamish Watson esque figure to balance up our back row a tad ideally.

Can we have 3 Makos too?

1 Mako.8 Billy. 12. Mako (distribution and kicking) 13 Billy (crashball and offloading)
I endorse the view that the extra Vunipolae do their rest and recovery in either Nandos or the Jelly Baby Emporium.
