Bullying pack, not a massive amount behind sadly. Guessing we're just going for the win and not BP which i'll be happy with.

By that backline and the subs in place, Iím assuming Irish are trying to arm wrestle the win. I doubt the backs will see much ball. I know weíre light on fit backs right now but what is the point on having Tonks on the bench? We already have Meehan in the squad who can move to ten if needs be. If we need to change the game, we need the likes of Nalaga, not Tonks.

Another injury in the backs, this time to Macken?
Looks about the strongest pack we have but the backs will have their work cut out

Quite intrigued why we are playing our best tighthead at loosehead, with DHA on the bench

Did this with Franks and he was never as effective

Wait, wait, wait. Number 18. Am I reading that correctly?

To be fair Cilliers played loosehead last week very effectively and has played a lot in the past. For me Hoskins has to start

Huge pack. Canít recall anything bigger from us for the least few seasons.

Canít see the pretty one-paced backs doing too much other than put in the tackles.

Considering the last time we went there we lost and this is a meeting of the two best defences in the league, it is likely to be an arm wrestle and the team picked is one to do that. Will be happy with any sort of win.
