Instead of the relegation fight being the topic, any word on injuries? There are players that Iíd forgotten we even had.
Whatís wrong with Palf?
Smallbone hasnít been mentioned of late. I know the doctor did a list at some point this season but I canít remember the extent of most of them, aside from the season ender for Nalaga.

I was wondering the same any updates on Hobbs-Awoyemi? I know it was a long term injury but was wondering whether there were any positive updates

Hobbs may have been another season ender. Without injuries weíd be top of the league.....

I know its been ridiculous, we always seem to have had bad luck on the injury front but this season has been crazy unlucky - dukey, Macnally , Nalaga and though he's back fit now but Fangia breaking his foot in a cool down. All freak incidents of injury or health that statistical shouldn't all happen at one club in one season.

We must be due some good luck soon from the rugby gods (fingers firmly crossed)(Sm1)

I'm glad Fainga'a is back. He seems to be making a difference to our game.

It would be great to see what we are like with a fully fit squad?

The player for me who always makes a difference is Mike Coman, we missed him when he was out injured for a few months. We are always better when he is in the team. Think that he is huge and has done a good job as Captain since Paice ban. Faingaa is just getting better with game time. You never want to moan and injuries are going to happen, but you want your best players on the pitch.

Is Palf any good? I canít remember the last time he played. In th pics he seems a bit top heavy compared to a lot of the props out there.

Palf did his job in the tight and was quite dynamic in the loose. A pretty good ball carrier from memory.

Not to mention the prop we havenít seen in the AVP yet, Manasa, who we signed from Toulon!

The player we are really missing is Mulchrone, who is to me anyway our most important back, our defensive lynchpin. He goes under the radar most of the time but keep an eye on him during the game, his workrate and organization in immense

Seventeen players injured? That's a hell of a lot for us to lose.

Agree with jekyll... Mulchrone has been our biggest miss. It is no coincidence that our defence was so strong in the first game against quins; then after losing Mulchrone and Coman we resembled a leaky bucket.

We have been better with Mike back in the side, but we still need Fergus to shore up the backs.
