22Dropout That's an excellent team - a few will be rusty, but hopefully all raring to go.
"Stade 23 for tomorrow really doesn't look too shabby..." I know they have a bit of a fixture pile up, but playing saturday and sunday is a bit extreme?
abendanon-anon-anon I thought we had a good side for the Wuss game last week - so much depends on whether they turn up or not. Our away form is abysmal. As you can tell, I'm not very optimistic about this one.
Unless its a twickenham, no hang on that was a home game
Apart from the front row, this is an extremely strong line-up & probably as good or better than the Stade squad. However, if we let in 2/3 tries in the first 20 mins, not an unusual occurrence this season, we will be struggling big time. Hopefully we will have a different attitude & will be up for this one.
ken_jnr There's a good chance I've forgotten someone, but Henry Thomas and Garvey apart, I think that's our first choice XV were I picking it. No excuses not to put in a performance this weekend!
That said, I sort of hope for a "plucky loser, controversial finish" affair so I don't have to trek up to Scotland on a Friday night...
This season Banners is the right call over Homer. Next year I wouldn't be surprised if his lack of pace out wide [his tries and assists mainly come from cutting inside] will probably see Home preferred on wing and Banners possibly more at 12
I think the prospect of a final against Glaws is very exciting and should be strong enough motivation.
Hope you have reserved your flights because the demands on Bristol Airport will be very high..
C'mon Bath you know you can do it!!
Just visiting to wish you all the best in Paris. Im hoping to watch a West Country derby in Edinburgh in three weeks time. You look to have your strongest lineup for some time and provided they bring their A game, which I think they will, you should be optimistic. C'mon Bath. Enjoy the day.
