Not encouraging about Baldwin.

Not to me, sounded more like he almost didn't mention him as in 'and obviously there's arr' type of way.

Would find it very strange if we let arr leave without a significant signing at scrum half.

I hope he has.
Has been on a par with Hougaard recently.

I think many need to be reminded need that we have Arr as many donít seem to think him worthy of selection. Good pairing with FH. Hope FH can actually counter de Klerk and impose his game on Sale.

He's been a good servant to the club, but I don't think he's ever really added that extra spark we've needed to climb the table, he's a solid championship player in my opinion. I do agree that he has been on par with Hougaard, but a below par Hougaard that is. But I wouldn't mind if Jonny did stay on but five 9's, six if you include Shilly isn't really necessary.

Have to ask why FH has been below par? Maybe the novelty of playing for an 11th place side has lost its shine. Not the talisman of previous seasons. Need him to be full tilt.

Comparing Hougi's form to that of last season where he was on fire! One performance in particular springs to mind, that game against Bristol, which I do not think we have seen him replicate at Sixways since his bad experience with SA in the Autumn internationals. However, he's still world class and I seriously hope we can get him to resign next season, which is probably likely as he really seems to be enjoying his time as a Warrior.

Hougaard has been below his best as he has played a lot of games with his only breaks being due to injuries then getting rushed back into the side.

If he gets a rest after the season and a good pre season I think he'll be great again next season.

Tbh I think Faf is a better all round player than Franny.

I think you're spot on about FH needing a summer off and a proper pre-season. It can't help having so many different people outside him. I suspect that he hasn't trained a lot with Shilly because of his injuries and little knocks and niggles week to week.

He and Lance seemed to be clicking before Lance got injured.



Whatever you do, do it safely!

I personally think FH is at his best, like any scrum half, when the forwards are going forwards and providing quick release. Recently our forwards have been going backwards and not giving quick release. FH spends most of his time wrestling forwards, which surely isn't really his job.

Regarding Arr, recently he's been spotting gaps and running through them, which is the opposite to the biggest criticism he usually gets. Maybe those gaps are there as the other teams don't expect him to snipe, but the bigger problem is that none of our own team can read it, possibly as none of them expect him to do it.
