Looking forward to seeing Le Bourgeois debut, plenty of firepower on that bench too.

Happy with that, as long as MLB goes well then that should be a good team.

Glad Gaskell in for Rowlands

Comparing bench for bench, I think we have more than an edge there.

Would be nice to see how Harris goes against Cole.

I must admit thereís only 2/3 tigers players I would have over Wasps players, so will be very disappointed it we donít win this

Great looking team, especially in the back row where I wasn't expecting Nizaam and Nathan to be available. Its maybe a bit lopsided there with Ashley as well but we will certainly have some serious physicality ! Will be interesting to see how MLB goes and at least he wont have to cope with Eastmonds twinkling footwork! COYW!!

Happy with that. MLB needs a go at 12, and Nizaam at 7 makes sense as young Joe A was too quiet last week.

No Kyle Eastmond for Tigers - is he injured? Kind of saw that as irony because 12 is our big problem position with Gopperth injured, yet Tigers potentially have Tuilagi and Eastmond. Wouldn't mind him back on loan!

This will be our third different midfield pairing in three games so not ideal. Sadly, I can't help thinking this is a season too far for Gaby as he's been injured a lot since he joined and wasn't great last week.

Desperately need to add a quality new 12 to the squad asap and hope MLB can develop quickly.

Should be a good match for Thompson against ultimately his replacement.

Johnson, Hughes and Carr is a massive back row, hopefully Thompson can try and control the breakdown.

Bit worried Guy gets MOTM actually. He'll want to perform.

Will be interesting to see how the Soapaga MLB combo goes, a high pressure game for both players to be getting there full debut and the inexperince is somewhat doubled by the fact they don't have an experienced player inside/outside them (if you see what I mean). Hopefully will go well but would not be surprised to see a few errors there early on.
Huge carrying back row, should give us some real go forwards, but lack a bit of balance going to need Tommy Taylor at his disruptive jackling best in defense, to turnover ball.
Can't wait to get to the Ricoh COYW

Yes Kyle is injured, apparently (according to Tigers Twitter) he went off injured week and hasn't recovered.

Kyle was reported as touch and go for this week, obviously didn't quite make it, hopefully that means he will be back soon.

I'm hope I'm wrong Stopsy but you may find that a lot with Kyle. Superb on the pitch, when he was on it.

Good to see Booj getting a start having featured heavily in pre-season and good to see Ben Morris get a seat on the bench. Dai is backing his new championship signings.

For any of you old enough you might recognise the Hardwick name for Leicester.. Dad being Rob, a Coventry RFC stalwart.. I suspect son is slightly quicker than his dad was.

Will be glad when we get our players back from the southern hemisphere, but our lads are more than capable of scoring a few tries, just need to tighten up the defence from last week though.
