Pleased to see Tom Howe and Huw Taylor get starts. Probably the strongest team we've put out in the ERC for many a year.

I hope Tom Howe clicks in tomorrows game. From what i have read of his Academy appearances so far, it hasn't gone so well, He has pace, so it will be interesting to see how things go.

Agreed, a strong team which will be enough to banish the recent poor showings in this Competition, and make attending the game, a more meaningful spectacle.

I like the side, some continuity but a bit of resting done too.
I like rotating the front row, be good to see what Taylor and Howe can do in a good side.

Hope Waller, csw and Humphreys use this to nail down a place in the first 15

Brive team very different to the one that started (and won!) their last Top14 fixture so I presume they're not especially strong.

Like that team but it leaves me with a number of questions, back row is looking pretty thin with Matti Williams covering the bench. Poor GJVV having to go through another 80 mins! Where are Denton, Kirwan and Faosiliva?

I also thought Chris Pennell was injured and Will Spencer was going to play, WN playing games again.

Personally thought Lance might start, but no problems with building up Shillcock's confidence. Will Sp

Good to see Adams, Willison and DOC all rested after a grueling few weeks.

Interested to see how the Teo/Olivier partnership goes! If they click it could be really effective.

Glad to see Shilcock getting a bit of an extended run at 10. It's great to have Lance in the squad, with him not being here past Xmas we need to get Shilcock game time at 10

I expect Brive to be 'abrasive' as is the style in France.

No matter how unfamiliar the names are in their team, due to the lack of a salary cap, their 'reserves' may be better quality than our own.

Any team that has managed to get game time out of JJ and Lelei in T14, must be miracle workers.

Why do we have 2 hookers on bench?
Or is Williams there as a backrow?

I think Williams covered 7 in pre season as well

Yeap, Hogg gets Euro games, Vesty gets the AWC and GG gets a chance to USA homegrinning smiley

Similar to the arrangement last year (GG to USA excepted).

Brive are bottom of the Top 14, [www.bbc.co.uk]

Conceded more on aggregate -141 (against WWs -115). If we can't beat their second team with a scatter of first team players then we have no hope!

Perhaps after missing last season GJ still feels he needs matches to get up to speed, I'm glad Spencer gets a rest I'm sure he picked up a knock against bath and he's too valuable to risk, with pennell I guess it's good as it shows he's not concussed.

I'd say Faso misses out due to the 2 none European rule
But as we've more than two that rule isn't right.

MSR,

I’d like to be certain that will be the case. However I am wary of not recognising many if any names in their side and feeling that must mean 5 points in the bag by this time on Saturday. Been there before and not liked the outcome....Zebre anyone?

They will have a big front row and fast wings.
Well they are French after all.
