This championship squad must be costing us a pretty penny.

So assuming Myler does not play and Atkins is off to the U20 6 Nations, does he come straight in on Sunday or do we try Alivereti Veitokani at 10. Personally I would be interested in seeing Alivereti Veitokani given a go. Plus where is Tonks?

J Atkins won't be involved in the 6N. He's two old now and never really troubled the selectors when he was young enough. His brother is on the bench for them on Friday night against Ireland.

May be wrong but don't think either Keatley or Alivereti are eligible for the cup.

Tonks was tweeting from a golf course in Portugal. Donít know the problem but guess it must be an injury

The whole squad seem to be in Portugal this week going by Instagram, so wouldn't read too much into Tonks' situation by it.

Golfing in Portugal, signing cover players when we have at least four others who can cover the position..... we are in a twilight zone when it comes to money now. Cost does not seem to be a problem

Worth it IMO - we have 9 championship games left and we can only afford to drop one or two games, depending on Ealing's bonus points, and we've had some pretty close games this season - so I welcome the insurance.

bazzo how many specialists do we have at fly half who are not injured 3 at most, others are part time so he is a insurance policy and money well spent against the lose of promotion.

I just cant fathom the desire to see Veitokani in the starting team far less at 10. Poor tackle technique, poor kick and has not really impressed me at all..

To me, this is an absolutely cracking signing. Myler is out, short term hopefully but you never know. Why do we all wish he could play week in, week out? He has a talent for putting the ball between the sticks. Who in our squad is fit and has the proven ability to kick points when we need them? Tonks? Certainly not, McLean? Not that I'm aware. Freddie? No. Atkins? Not proven at this level. Personally I'll be feel much safer with Keatley travelling to Bedford and Cornwall.

I would agree on performance so far. But I think he needs a chance.

He lit up the league he was in previously and won awards

He coming and being asked to use his attributes to play in a completely different way. If K&K can use his natural talents to be working in a more structured way he will turn into gold.

I'm sure he can come good, but at the moment that has to be from 15 rather than 10.

Its a fair call. Lets see how he goes over the next few weeks but on present form its a worry

Sorry, was referring to Veitokani. Unsure if Keatley has played 15.

Is he eligible to play this weekend given that it's a cup-tie competition?

Maybe it's allowed as he is injury cover

Cup competitions usually have a break going from pool to knock-out stages where you can augment your playing squad. Don't know when the cut-off would have been, though. Would be very surprised if we got him registered.

Unlikely to play


6.5 A Club may only play or select as a replacement in the knock-out stage players that have been selected in a match day squad in the pool stage.
