Great to see a few returning from injury / finally pulling on a green (well blue) shirt.

How large do we think this loss will be?

Usually I'd say pretty big with three teenagers in the pack, but Bath have a couple of schoolboys up front to our one (Donnell). So may just be a ten point loss.... In all seriousness, they have a few more U18s and ringers in their squad than we do, so you never know. We going to win one of these one day.

We should dominate that game. Our team is far more senior than theirs. No excuses, should be an easy win. Williams ransom and Theo all played in Paris and won convincingly, this shouldn’t be a massive challenge. If Theo can’t control a game like this, it’ll confirm the suspicions about him.

Agreed, our side is massively more experienced.

If we don't win by 15 then frankly there is very little hope for the future, as it would be clear that even the other sides' academies were at a higher level than our professionals are...

Thanks, but you're clearly new here. We haven't won an A League game in about three seasons. No matter how probable it seems, it won't happen.

de Glanville is indeed Phil's son. Featured for England U18s this year.

I don't want to alarm anyone but we are in the lead 0 - 7. Lovejoy in with the try

Edit - Now M Williams in, not converted 0 - 12

Nope, no alcohol involved. Basham has just scored 0 - 19

I'm going for a lie down

Quick exchange of tries (Brand for Irish after a Ransom break)

7 - 26

Edit - And that's the HT score

Atkins and Parton (in for his hat trick) score in the closing minutes.

7 - 64 the final score

I know we had a stronger squad on paper, but fair play to them for getting the job done in style.

Apart from Lovejoy, all the LI scorers were teenagers.

Great for the boys. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that a lot of these boys have played before many times coming through the academy. Shame ransom couldn’t get on the scoresheet, would like to see his name on the match day squads a bit more often.

You might want to replace 'start winning' with 'have won one'

I was going by the form book, obviously. Glad they ripped it up, hope the senior side do the same this weekend but I won't be predicting or putting money on it

On paper that was a lot of experienced lads up against several young uns and LI should’ve reflected that in the scorecard. We did. Great news. Hope it was a good experience / learning experience all round. Love this game.
