Good to see we are taking it seriously. No doubt Eif will comment on the Lawes at 6 selection

Thatís really spooky! Just as the clock ticked round to noon and the much anticipated ďTeamís Upí post, the postman dropped a Toolstation catalogue though my letterbox!

Good team, Courts at 6 is a bit odd as Woody had a great game there last week.

Still, COYS!

Picked a big pack to try and negate their perceived dominance.

I'm a little bit meh about this game tbh I'd rather see us stop Sarries getting out of the group next week to help the healing of having scored over 100 points against us in 2 games

We need to make Franklins a fortress again.....


Having seen the Clermont team (sorry doesnt copy and paste well from twitter) we are well in this. Slimani starts which we will have to take on the chin. Their bench doesn't look great up front, I fancy us last 20 mins.

A good home performance will help build momentum and confidence.

I appreciate that theoretically the result is irrelevant but for me performance and momentum are crucial.

A spanking will set us back in progressing in the Premiership even if we have no remaining chance of qualifying in Europe.

Whilst a good showing (even if it's not a win will help belief inside the squad, relieve pressure on the coaches and send a message to future opponents.

obviously very happy to see Tom S get a start, a big test!

good to see involvement for Mitch and Nafi too - presumably a rest for Gibson

i know that there are injuries, but it looks like a few more of the Wandies are being drip fed into the 1st team.

this can only be a good thing for the likes of Grays, Tom S and more recently Eadie.

Perhaps Gaffney is hoping that the Wandies momentum and confidence will help drive the 23. I didn't appear to have done Ken much harm!

I worry about Brookes, I worry that my tv may be out in the drive if the usual belly flop happens.
Great to see Stephenson in, has all that is required to be a great player.
Can't be there but COYS

riverlodge, I hope Stephenson will be less childish and better behaved than he was down at Swansea.

Falgoux and Slimani I fear will destroy our scrum.
