Looks better than I expected to be honest. Mainly because I was expecting most of the first team that played last week to be rested after Exeter bruised us up!

Great seeing Flood is able to start after coming off early last week. Mark Wilson is absolutely relentless. He is probably due a rest.

Would expect the side to be quite strong this week and more experimental next.

I'd expect the players who started against Exeter and are starting again on Sunday to be rested, but that's only 5 and there are some experienced players who could come back in as well as youngsters.

If they get the full points on Sunday then they top the group and a different team will surely make the long trip to Enisei

The 23 for the away game will still have to be registered for the competition and the Falcons will want it to be heavily EQP. Although a win on Sunday will secure a home quarter final it would still be useful to pick up 5 points in Georgia. Keeps the winning run going and and if they finish no. 1 or 2 seed there's a chance of a home semi-final. No 3 or 4 seed would play away in the semi-final. [www.epcrugby.com]

Robinson, Graham and Chick are the only other back five players registered and are probably all unavailable. Payne has played second row in the past.

As to the team, I like it a lot.

Theres some big carrying with Burrows, Sowery and Uzokwe, plenty of grunt up front, and plenty of creativity and pace in the backs.

Looking forward to the game.
