Sounding more and more like Louwís days are numbered. Unsurprisingly considering what heís put his body through. Our lack of centres is again causing concern.

Crikey, Ken, thatís writing him off before his time isnít it?

He was MoM only 10 days ago - gets injured in the next game and heís only good for the knackers Yard!

Some good players missing and back row & centres a concern, Wasps also got many missing Gopperth, Daly, Hughes, Mullen, Bassett just for a few. It is that time of year where bodies are exhausted and pitches heavy.

My concern is our lack of depth in the squad, but remain hopeful we can win this and do the double over Wasps, especially given the poor weather forecast may nullify their pace men.

Well at least the loss of banners, Louw, tapuai et al is more than made up for by the return of charteris. confused smiley do we actually have any 12s left? Rhys didn't go well last week, maybe obano?

Underhill is a real worry. These things tend to take longer and longer to recover from

FFS when will we get a bit of luck.

Wasps will rightly arrive full of confidence now.

I would give Dunn a go in the back row if we are short there. Other #2's in the AP and T14 have been used in this way and his tackle stats suggest he plays like another #7. Needs must etc...



Adopted players: 2018/19 Michael Van Vuuren; [18] T Faletau; [17] D Denton; [16] H. Agulla; [15] L Houston; [14] W Spencer; [13] F. Louw

Heís still quality when heís fit. Heís 32 though and the time spent on the physio table has not been inconsiderable these last few years. Neck, hamstring, shoulder, knee all in the last few years.

I donít want him to be winding down, but his style of play doesnít exactly scream ďlongevityĒ and I personally canít see him going beyond next season.

It seems that the average for players "unavailable for selection" remains at a constant.
For whatever reason this number seems to hover around 14 or 15.

The injuries week upon week do not diminish - and these are serious mishaps to bodies.

With this persistent situation how on earth can you build team continuity and understanding between players?

Blackadder spoke about reviewing the S&C if we had another season riddled with injuries, must be crossing their mind now.

Is it Flo's fitness or is it overplaying generally, it's not just Flo it's most of our back row!

Itís actually a worryingly large proportion of premiership rugby players full stop.
