Bit of a cup final feel about tomorrow!

What we lose with Faletau, we (just about) gain with Louw. Toulon - Vermeulen, especially - won a hat load of penalties over the ball last week, so, hopefully, Flouw can have a real impact.

Keen for us to give it a real go, attack wide with Banahan and Brew like we did last week, and, if we get the upper hand in the scrum again, at home, we might just have enough to see us through.

Allez allez allez.

would ahve liked to see zach start, good to see Fran back



Andy Goode's body double.

Bring back rucking and speed up the game. Simple, for rucks sake.

Ashton to the wing - why's that then?

Best possible 23 so itís all about getting them playing. Good bench again, Zach and Freddie etc against tired bodies sounds good to me. Hopefully the French wonít like a cold (potentially wet) night.

Don't laugh, that is a far more dangerous proposition with Ashton on wing and Bonneval at FB

Our kicking had best be on the money or else we won't be en riant

Forecast is chilly 4 degrees, dry with a light westerly wind 8mph (BBC weather)
Not your South of France, but not bad for time of year

I was more optimistic about winning last week given our patchy home form this season.

I take it you didn't go to Toulon where it was 15mph North Westerlies, 3į with a windchill that made it feel like -3.

Always feels colder at the Rec because of the damp from the river!
Anyone know if Toulon came over last night. Maybe stayed at Celtic Manor?

No Triki, I didn't - one of these days!
Didn't realise it could get that cold down there - I'll retire somewhere else now!

There were a few wandering around Bath last night about 2000hrs so assuming they were staying somewhere in the city.
