Team vs Bath

No Billy V for this weekend according to Smally. Possibly ready for LI and very sure for Glaws. That's fine with me.

Good news is that both Vincent Koch and Mike Rhodes look like they're coming back for the Bath game, again according to Smally.

It's all coming together at the right time.

If they're both fit then they need to be in the 23 or they won't have enough game time. So my guess would be Vincent on the Bench for Longbottom. Mike Rhodes to start instead of Isiekwe who drops to the bench, Dom Day gets a day off.

Could potentially a start Isiekwe at 4 with Kruis at 5 and give Maro a rest... But then again they get a rest next weekend, so on the assumption Itoje Starts... who would be a coach ?!
Lots of options now

Potentially a team like

1. M Vunipola
2. George
3. Figallo
4. Itoje
5. Kruis
6. Rhodes
7. Burger
8. Wray
9. Wigglesworth
10.Farrell
11.Maitland
12.Barritt ©
13.Lozowski
14.Williams
15.Goode

Replacements
16.Brits
17.Barrington
18.Koch
19.Isiekwe
20.Cowan
21.Spencer
22.Taylor
23.Wyles

With Billy returning at the end of April (hopefully) Saracens could be in a great place come end of season!

I wonder how Exeter would cope against a first team?

And of course, were Saracens to win, PRL would have to re-schedule the final for an international window so that Exeter retained their customary advantage smiling smiley

Wouldn't you like to rest a few more of those guys for the end of season finals? Don't want Billy V returning too soon do we! That's a hell of a team, hope you can put similar out against Exeter at Twickenham.

It would be nice if Vailanu was available this week too

Will you be in attendance, dear boy? Always good to welcome the Bath faithful.

As Brad B had to leave the field early and for once we have plenty of centres I don't think it beyond the bounds of possibility he might be rested this week. That would give him 3 full weeks between matches for his face to repair fully.

He'll probably play smiling smiley

Our West country cousins are running a score prediction thread. There was a suggestion we might go all out to secure the TBP then coast the 2nd half. This was the response.

"Not sure I've ever seen Sarries coast - once they have you by the throat they start to have fun".

The predicted score I like the most was;

"I think it will be the same as the date:

Bath 14, Saracens 2018".

Clearly sense of humour alive and well over the Avon

Sorry TOKS, one humiliation in London this month is enough for me, thanks.

If we face Exeter in the final, PRL will discover that we haven't rested our players enough and bar most of our first team!
