Although we scored try's when mike came on against Saracens I don't think he played well at all, he still crabbed across the pitch and took the space of the wingers, JPS doesn't seem as comfortable with mike as the 10,

Probably because the way Socino is as a player, a barrel like 12 who likes to run hard lines to a flat defence, not from deep... if you had someone like Adam Powell or Dom Waldouck outside mike, I think it would work out very well, solid distributors...

I think you could stick Delany at 15 on Saturday, although taits been exceptional he has dropped some shockers in recent weeks and having Delany at 15 may take some pressure of Hodgson at 10.

I remember seeing mike playing 15 earlier in the season against Quins and he played his best game for us imo, floated out some lovely balls to the wide channel for Socino and made some great breaks and dangerous carries...

I change me mind. This is what I would like to see Saturday aha-

1. Rob Vickers
2. Kyle Cooper
3. Jon Welsh
4. Evan Olmsted
5. Calum Green
6. Mark Wilson
7. Will Welch
8. Callum Chick
9. Sonatane Takalua
10. Joel Hodgson
12. JPS
13. Chris Harris
14. Goneva
15. Delany

Taity on the bench.
