Pack's looking good.
If our half backs click it could be an exciting afternoon.
Let's hope Castres give Jack some catching practice because I'm looking forward to him running it back! It's been a long time since we've seen him at 15 but great to have him back in the side.

That’s the most exciting back line we have fielded all season smiling smiley Good to see Joe at 10 and Devoto at 12. White just needs to give quick ball and make one or two snipes to keep the defence honest.

This has to be one of our strongest 23’s all season. If we hit the ground running and play like we know we can, it’s ours for the taking.

Obviously a big focus on the line out with Dennis, Hill, Skinner and Armand. This horrible French pack is going to meet one of the biggest and most physical set of forwards in England so there will be some massive collisions and sore bodies tomorrow. I can’t wait!

Excited to see J Simmonds linking up with Devoto and Sladey. These three between them have the vision, creativity and line braking ability to panic defences and make the most of a very potent back three. I hope Nowellsy goes well at 15 as this could be a solution to a few problems out there! He has all the attributes to thrive at full back but has never looked too comfortable. Perhaps an extended run there will allow him to flourish.

Our bench as always is not a step down. When these boys come on they will bring real pressure and intensity which could be crucial in a game like this. It’s all or nothing so we need to go flat out for the full 80.

Come on Chiefs!

I agree that Jack could be a good option at 15 for the rest of the season. On the wing we have Jack, Cordero, O’Flaherty, Woodburn, Cuthbert and Short to pick from while at full back we only really have Dollman (hopefully Simmonds will nail down 10). Dollman hasn’t look as sharp this season and playing Jack at 15 would also allow us to play more of our star wingers.

It would just be great for Jack to get some consistent game time with us. I’d add Bodilly into the mix for fullback.Looks like he is fit again and has always impressed me when he has had Chiefs game time. Over the international period he might get the chance to stake his claim.
