Team for the weekend vs Newcastle

So back to the Premiership this weekend at the Ricoh, I fully expect the big guns to be back out where possible. I'd personally like to see something like:

1) McIntyre
2) Johnson
3) JCW
4) Symons
5) Rowlands
6) Haskell/Thompson
7) Young
8) Carr

9) Robson
10) Jimmy
11) Bassett
12) JdeJ
13) Macken
14) Wade
15 WLR

Tough call with the back row actually but then with a bench then made up out of some of Charles or TJ, Marty, PDJ, Gaskell, Willis, Simmo, Miller, Armitage, anyone know if Kyle/Gaby are fully fit again yet?

Still another must-win game in my opinion - we need to take advantage of still having a strong squad during the internationals!

If Falcons play the game that they have over the previous two matches, it should be a cracker.

I am thinking we will see Nathan Charles at hooker with Ashley on the bench. I also think Lovobalavu with be fit, and, for good measure, I think Cips will be too. His latest Instagram walls show him running up and down stairs/steps. I suspect Kyle is now fit also.

Suddenly we have a squad in the backs.

Nathan and Ashley will be good to be able to switch between them for sure

I definitely don't think we will see Cips until maybe the Gloucester game on 23rd December, maybe not until after Christmas. Rehab is a slow process and I would rather he was 100% before starting him again.

Being able to select Kyle or Gaby in the centres again would be a big boost though!

This is going to be a really tough game that we must win. I thought Gaby will be back for this game so would definitely have him playing. Hopefully Kyle is fit.

Must play Guy Thompson at 6 or 8, itís between Haskell and Carr who will be on the bench.

I will be amazed if Cips is available I also believe the Bath game is likely to be the one he come back. At best the week before

Will be interesting to see who's fit after a couple of weekends off. Also is there not a chance well have Launch back? Maro will be back in for England so only room for 2 more locks, and currently seems to be Kruis and Lawes in favour. Could end up with one of Maro or Lawes starting at 6 and Launch keeping his bench spot though.

Given the pretty good news from Broadstreet this week I think I'd like to see:

1 McIntyre
2 TJ Harris
3 JCW
4 Gaskell
5 Symons (or Rowlands if not fit)
6 Thompson (I think I should be saying Willis...)
7 Young
8 Carr

9 Robson
10 Gopperth
11 Bassett
12 JdJ
13 Gaby
14 Wade
15 WLR

16 Charles
17 Ben Harris
18 Marty Moore
19 Rowlands\Symons
20 Willis
21 Simmo
22 Armitage (shaded over Macken given he is more versatile)
23 Miller

Did I miss an injury to AJ? If not, AJ at 2, Charles in the 16 shirt.

Wot no Ash? Or are you giving him a rest?

For some reason I thought I had read somewhere that he was carrying a knock... But given I can't find anything to confirm that think I must have imagined it.

If he is fit then Ash would certainly be in, probably ahead of TJ Harris, I just thought that it would probably be beneficial to bring Charles in as a replacement.
