We look considerably nearer to full strength. Hopefully a good derby victory coming up. If we do get 5 points and win well, we'll put ourselves in the mix for a home semi. COYS!!!

Making the trip over from Brancaster tomorrow with friends in the enemy camp, got a good feel about this, a BP win against Tigers would push the whole squad on for the remainder of the season
lets hope T keeps himself on the paddock as he's captain again
COYS!!!!

Its crazy to think that we no longer have a distinct Wandies or First Team.

Absolutely agree, so pleased with the opportunity everyone is getting. The success of the Wandies in the past has highlighted our failing as a first team. You could even see a "them and us" stance on social media at times.

Credit where credit is due, Boyd seems to really be building for future. I not going to say we'll win the league, but the blue prints are there to develop a success academy and bring home grown talent through.

As I see it, Saints need a five point win to get in the mix for a home s/f. We do not want Chiefs to get anything more than four points at Bristol as I think Wuss will get all five at home to Wasps. Thère are other permutations !

Great looking team. Good to see Tuitavake and Pisi both back but integrated with the young backs and great to see Tei as captain, thoroughly deserved. Tigers back 3 looks good so will be interesting test of our younger combination.

Just had a look at the respective Bristol and Exeter sides. Bristol to me look fairly near full strength, Exeter more mixed and are playing very inexperienced half backs. Hope Bristol can do us a favour.

Everyone involved with the Wanderers deserve a lot of praise as they have instilled such a positive attitude in these young lads. I can’t think of a single occasion this season when one of these players hasn’t shone when given the chance to play. They have such confidence and belief in themselves and you can easily see international honours in their futures.

How many of these would we say are first team starters?

Collins, Reinach, Gibson, Harrison (Capt)?

The rest being a mixture of first team benchers (in the forwards particularly) and youth.

Would of liked to have seen what Mitch Eadie could do and Mitchel starting at 9.

Great to see Pisi and Haskell back and hearing Craig is about to return too. The only two positions where further injuries could mean needing injury cover are fly half and hooker. But we've coped admirably well through a lot of injuries and the youngsters have shone. Surprised we are risking Reinach.

On paper we really should win. But a young Tigers team in a derby with nothing to lose could make it tasty! The Tigers forum are despondent about their team's chances (Sm13)

Is it on TV?

BT are showing the Bristol vs Exeter game. Hopefully we will get some decent highlights at some point.

Joe Ford, Ross McMillan and Campese Ma’afu are all ex-Saints, returning to the Gardens.

Where they will meet former Tigers, Barrow and Gibson.

They will all be ‘up for it’, as they say...

We are consistently the top 1 or 2 reserve league side for a reason (and arguably the cap should be more spent on the core first team than wider squad) but it does mean we have depth.

Plus frankly it’s very important psychologically to win games right now, and to beat our bigger local rivals. I think it’s an error on your part. So I applaud the selection, no mercy!

enjoy the game, interested to look out for some of your younger talent whilst Evans vs Brussouw should be fun

Interested to understand the route Tom Hardwick followed to rock up at the roundabout.

Apparently he is from Olney? He's not the first from there to play for Tigers, either.

His younger brother is with us Tigers too, presumably his Dad thought Tigers academy was a good bet at the time

Went to rugby school, which is a school that Tigers look at (Him and Jonny Law our academy 9 on the bench today are from Rugby).

Thanks Stopsy, Ayerzawannabe.

Will have to have a word with the committee at Olney. Club history should tell them. Only one club to feed.

Should know better!
