This is the team I would be looking for in the opening game against Worcester. Even tho they have seemed of late to be our bogey team, we need to start with a solid 4/5points win. With our potential back line the premiership should be worried

2. Cooper
3. Welsh
4. Green
5. Robinson
6. Wilson
7. Welch
8. Latu
9. Takulua
10. Flood
11. Sinoti
12. Socino
13. Mermoz

I want to have a look at us against Rotherham first. There were some impressive performances yesterday from guys who weren't in the frame at all in May and Dean is always willing to reward a step up.

Dawson ahead of Young on the bench for me

Impressive performance today and he has developed well

I think a few others put their hand up for a starting spot, certainly the wingers impressed me.

Even the trailist th jack payne looked interesting. (what's happening with the Wilsons!?)

Young Stuart the sh looked quicker than young ever has.

Burrows will start at 8. He looks a class act and physical aswell.

Green was OK but Witty impressed me. I'd just like to see him carrying more in the heart of the action. Hes so fast and physical...and his offloads are superb for a lock.

Although I had a long drive home to London after the game it passed quick as I reflected the two games. I was well impressed with lots that I saw. Witty, Dawson, sinotti, Orr, all stood out for me. Then Flood appeared. Apart from the interception try he was like a breath of fresh air. Thank you to all concerned who brought him home. Bring on the season as I for one think we will be up there competing for Europe.

Forgot to mention Chris Harris. He looked very good and ran hard at the opposition. Good luck Mr Richards and Co when selecting the first league squad

To early to tell yet really, but some good performances out there yesterday. The new 9, Sam Stuart looked in really good condition and was really dangerous around the fringes, I was really impressed with his all round skills, looks a canny 9 as did Dawson, their will be a right tuff for the 9 shirt this season, should be some great competition.

Was also very impressed with Payne, I thought he carried the ball really well.

Chick was solid in defense made some great shots.

Radwan, The lads developing at a phenomenal level and will be full of confidence, wouldn't be surprised to see him playing premiership rugby this season.

Didn't see enough of Matevasi.

LATUUU! Guy just throws thew kitchen sink at the oppo, some great shots from him yesterday, really impressed with his workrate.

Chris Harris was awesome, but needs to show that against premiership teams as well.

I did write a preview for this match and sent it to monkey to post, unfortunately I forgot he's away this weekend and I didn't save the preview on my computer which is rather guttering! Looking forward to tomorrow night, hopefully all you southstand nutters are ready to give the boys a super loud backing! COYF!
