Reading the match reports (what a pleasure after a great win) it seems that for the last ten minutes we had two hookers on the field. Can somebody tell me why, and secondly, how did they fit in?

Matt Williams came on for Sam Lewis in the backrow. This is where he was due to play as Haupt was on the bench for Hooker cover.

I thought Matt Williams was a hooker?

Maybe he played occasionally as flanker for Saints.

Matti is but he obviously knows how to play blind-side flanker (Sm14)

He is/was but was originally a backrow player before becoming a Hooker. As we seem to be completely out of backrows and had a 6/2 split on the bench, he was in when we rang the changes.

Suspect the project might be over at the end of the season. He's filled some gaps really well for us, but doesn't seem to be featuring exclusively at either position.

He is more an openside(7) than a blindside(6)

Mind you, the Scots sent their scrum-half to fly-half. Incidentally, I thought David Denton's cameo was superb, which means we've seen the last of him I suspect until the internationals are over.

I guess he was a travelling reserve as you need the specialist positions covered props hooker and half backs . We had already two second rows named on the bench and when spencer pulled out he was brought on to the bench
