By my count we have the following out injured/unavailable:
International:
Reid
Campbell
Paulo
Hearn
Motu
Saulo

Injured:
B Atkins
Twomey
Franco VDM
T J Ionne
Trev
Max Northcote-Green
Coman
steele? Surely would have seen more of him if not
Theo B-C
Mulchrone
Stephenson
Macken
Fowlie
Nalaga (who knows)
Tommy Bell
Ben Loader
Tom Parton

17 players who lets face it you wouldn't be disappointed if they appeared on the first team sheet.

No wonder the backs haven't been able to gel.

I'd argue our 5 best centres are all on that unavailable list...!
Thought steele played against jersey off the bench?

I donít rate Steele that highly, maybe he coaches donít either. Heís not injured, just on the bench mostly

whisper it quietly but our forwards (already a cut above the rest) should get even stronger over the coming months.

The backs too should get stronger, so maybe we aren't in as bad a place as we thought....

sorry too optimistic I know.

There's no place for that sort of talk in these parts! Please keep it between glass half empty and glass empty or smashed on the floor.

Question for me is how many will be fit for the end of December and the next round, Couldn't care less about the cup, other than to use it to bring a few long term injured up to match fitness

Serious question though, will any of the above be match fit in seven weeks?

So frustrating that the club don't give medical updates

Probably even more depressing if they did and it seems (on face value) we canít even afford or manage to get any loan signings in....

I'm sure we'll get a few in over the next month or two. Either proper signings or loan/short term cover to give first teamers a bit of a rest.

I genuinely don't now if we can field a first xv with that many out, without delving into the first year academy boys as well.

Hay
Perocki
Baker
Collinridge
Donnell
Cooke
curtis harris
??
Brand
Atkins
Ollie Hassle Collins
williams
??
ojo
tonks

no idea if even all of those are fit/on loan but can't think who we'd have on the bench.

Most of us already have green shirts (and away shirts too), I suggest that we all also bring a pair of boots to the next few games so that Dec & Les can select who they think is fittest.

I would hope that most of our Senior Academy are equal to the challenge of the cup matches, especially if the other teams are without half their squads too.

as if by magic half of those re-appear in the cup team. It's almost as if the coaches know what they are doing and didn't want to rush anyone back in and risk further injury.
