that is close to our best back line - with Sin Sin, tait and Flood in the 23 it would be there

Looking forward to seeing Willis and Socino junior in the side, against a very strong Bath side.

Have said for a while that Willis is the future of this club at ten, and although Hodgson has been excellent so far, look forward to seeing what Willis can do.

What has happened to Callum Chick, is he injured?

With Rokoduguni for Bath we need strong wings.

Whatís happened to Maxime Mermoz he wasnít injured when he adsconded to France for a couple of weeks and he was on the plane to the USA but not even on the bench.

RR, Chicky went off with an injury early on against Sale.

Pityacker, Max travelled to the USA but suffered some sickness while he was over there, and barely trained during the week.

Mermoz was going to play our last friendly against Edinburgh but went back to France for personal reasons. Now he is back has he picked up an injury? I expected him to be our starting 13 over Harris this season.

Sincerely hope that Flood is available for the London Irish game.

I'd have Tait over Hammersley when the former is available again, with Goneva and DTH on the wings with Sinoti on the bench for impact.

Thanks for that Smithy like a lot of fans have been looking forward to seeing the classy Mermoz start in the league but for one reason or another he hasnít so perhaps next week.

If you go from eating French food to eating American food, well it's just going to happen.

Hi Kath, the team to play London Irish will be named on Thursday of next week. We're not going to aid London Irish's or any other team's preparation by telling them which players may or may not be involved in the game until we absolutely have to.

Cheers

The main thing I want to see from this game is be aggressive and actually go at Bath hard and attack!

Despite the wins I've seen barely any of that so far...

Or maybe not, hence Mark's post.

Deano likes to keep them guessing, which is a pain in the rear for we supporters, but if Deano believes it might sometimes help, even a little bit, then I will go along with that.
