I guess you're looking at 6 weeks at least for Young and Lockwood, including rehab if they had casts.. Obviously depending on when the injuries happened. That's not good news.

I believe Sam's is short term, nowhere near 6 weeks.

Sam did say pre game in the tap & tackle that he hoped to have a run out prior to the season starting.

That's nice to hear Davidten. You don't want to start the season with one of your key players out.

The Edinburgh game is likely to be the dress rehearsal for the premiership team to face Sarries. Wouldn't expect many or any who have been away on international duty to start before then. Don't expect to see Sexton and co for Leinster either. Probably more like their PRO 14 team when the internationals are rested.

What was your point about your list of players?
I'm sure you're aware that some of them have already had a run out

That list I posted was the players I think didn't get a run out on Saturday and was wondering if they would be involved against Leinster

Cavubati, Green, Davidson, Young, Chick and Uzokwe got a run out and I thought I saw Penny out there as well. I thought you said on another thread that someone was calling Uzokwe ‘Izzy Wizzy’ ?

o
Yes you're right i knew I'd leave some names in there who had run out.

I quite liked the look of Cavubati as well

So those guys shouldn't be in my list
