Tad harsh there Running, I think one of the reasons we've done so well this year is due to the standard of our back up players. I'd be looking to retain:-
- Welsh who has been a quality signing and who doesn't want to see a man at 19 clem running through holes in the defensive line and having a 40 yard dash!
- Harris being so unlucky with injury, but in the brief appearances so far notably of the bench against Bath was willing to carry and made a big impact on us getting that match winning try. I just feel bigger things are coming for this lad!
- Rogers play both side of the scrum and has done well in the euro campaign, if he was let go we'd need to replace him with a loosehead and there isn't many about
- Ryan looks like he's been hammering the cardio of late and looking a lot leaner, done great for lad because he looks a half decent scrummager. Again if jettisoned would need replacing
- Hogg has to stay, FULL STOP.
- Chisanga looks promising, not fussed though
- Young, another preseason working his boxing kicking and I'm happy. Some of his performances from the bench have been great this year and has Welsh's navy for a line break. I think it be a real shame if Young left
- TC for me has to stay, id like to see him reconcentrate on the back three again. He's a modern day Tom May, TC's versatility and skill are worth keeping
- C.Harris again unlucky with injury, but he's a quality 13 when fit. Just ask Pisi after his performance against him at the Gardens last year!
- Tait same as Hogg, sign him up for as long as possible!
- Penny from what I've seen a canny player
- Waldouck/Powell one of these boys if not both, both experienced and solid in defence which they're always vocal in organising
- Watson in the same category as Tait and Hogg but unfortunately think he's gone
