Ah yeah keeping Welsh should be a he push for Dean. I think he's a class player...not to mention his line breaks put the backs to shame!

I think our scrum has been fine this season. Don't forget the scrum isn't all about the front row...the locks play a huge role in it aswell and we have locks now that appear to be very strong scrummagers.

We had a big blow with Lockwood going out so soon in the season as he looked like the one, and Rob Vickers could then have been managed suitably with his gametime. As it is Rob isn't getting any younger and im not convinced Rogers is the answer. Brocklehurst and Davison are just academy lads. Maybe we need to add 1 seasoned option - talk of that French LH.

Can Chisanga be as good a change as Beast Mtarriwara (he moved from back row to LH) or Vickers move from hooker to LH?? Who knows.

I think at TH we are fine (Jon Welsh is quality!) long as Davy and Scott Wilson both stay fit and injury free! But that just looks unachievable from this seasons showings. For me the jury is out on Ryan. He's one big unit...and sometimes he seems to smash everything in front of him...but then other times im far less convinced on him.
Young Foster is still a work in progress.

Hooker we are in very rude health.
