Any thoughts? I guess some of the walking wounded may be fit.

Tait
Sinoti
Harris
Matavesi
Goneva
Flood
Takulua

Wilson
Cooper/Lawson
Lockwood
Green
Robinson
Wilson
Graham
Latu

Lawson/Socino
Davison
Vickers
Witty
Hogg
Hodgson
Young
Hammersley/JPS

Barring injuries, a similar 23 for Twickers, depending on who we get. (Dare we dream?)

Be interesting to see who's fit. Think the backline picks itself if all good to go but the forwards may not be so easy.

Hopefully the 2/3 week break that some of the guys have had will have helped clear up one or two niggles.

If Cooper is unfit I would play Socino. The key to competing with Exeter is to stop them on the gainline as far as possible and his chop tackling would be useful. Hammersley has started ahead of Tait just about all season and I don't expect that to change.

I don't get why hammers is always ahead of Tait? Hammers has been average at best all season and isn't reliable under the high ball

Vickers
Cooper or Lawson
Wilson
Green
Welch
Graham
Wilson
Young
Flood
Sinoti
Matavesi
Harris
Goneva
Tait

Although I'd be tempted to maybe put Goneva in at 13 and play Kibirige or Radwan as a curve ball and added flyer to help us take chances.

The bbc interview with Mark Wilson says he'll captain the side so I'm guess Will Welch won't be playing

To clarify, the reference from the interviewer to Mark captaining the side was just based on him captaining the team in Will's absence the last few games. It wasn't to say Will Welch was definitely out.

I'm saying that nobody at the club has said publicly that he isn't fit.

The team will be named on Friday at noon.

I completely agree. He is such a threat at the fringes as well. Picks some great lines and seems to animate other players with his movement off the ball.
