I am very excited by the prospect of a myler theo 10-12 combo. Reminds me of the catt geraghty link in the golden days. Great to see fowlie back too, just overall a very positive vibe coming from that squad.

Yep loving the look of that back line in particular, shame a couple of them didn't start last week...!

Should hopefully be a fun one. That said hopefully the likes of Myler/Rogerson/Hoskins do manage to get a proper break at some point in the next month or two

Great to see Theo and Fowlie back

Just 1 prop on the bench? Is that even legal?

Would be great if we can use the cup to get everyone fit again and then have dullysquad to finish the second half. Still think Coman and Franco are missed

Really like that side. It has been freshened up, but not wholesale changes. Give 3-4 keys players a rest each week over the next 6 weeks. Get that balance right and we should be able to give players decent recovery time without losing team cohesion or said players losing match fitness.

Yes, we're back in the Championship so it's a team of 15 plus 7, not 8. In the Prem you have to have an entire front-row in your 8 subs.

Great to see some of the guys, Fowlie and Nalaga in particular who we thought might be crocked (and TBC, though we knew his return was imminent), but also raises more questions than answers in terms of where they were for the Jersey game given the backline we fielded. Just coincidence that they're fit a week later but weren't before, or something more?

Also, glad to see Max Northcote-Green getting a run. He's quality, and despite the obvious back-row strength, I'd love to see a lot more of him.

When you look at that team it's easy to think that we have about 40 players of very similar ability,and just a handful a cut above,either on ability or leadership.

Assume it's the same Harry Butler on the bench that was playing under 18s with us a few years ago. Now in the Gloucester academy iirc
