I like the look of our side. Massive game for Trevor Davison playing at tighthead. No need for Deano to provide a team talk before the game, the players will be fired up for this one.

Any news when Mark Wilson/Gary Graham are returning?

Northampton side looks strong. It'll be interesting to see how George North performs, doesn't send a good message to the rest of their players that he starts as soon as he has been disciplined.

Looks like a strong side, and interested to see how Trevor Davison does at tighthead. Could save us a few quid in the summer.....

Saints scrum was@#$%&for 3 years but the last handful of games it’s actually been pretty solid. I guess Dorian is polishing up his CV

Fat lad at 3 who loves Nando’s had a proper good game at tighthead today.

Shame he couldn’t do that all season.

Yea, they gave us a bit of a hammering. Looked to me more like Davidson struggling tbh, although it was Lockwood who got pinged. We were quite lucky there weren't too many scrums as it was an area Saints were targeting. It would interesting to see Welsh and Lockwood get a good run as they seem like our best props by a distance imo.
