Latu has had some game time to catch up after a long time off, so if all has gone well on the training pitch this week he may be worth a start. I agree about FH but not for the same reasons. I have seen Joel perform wonders as an impact player, a role you don't normally associate with a fly half, but for some reason it works. I would start Willis & Young, play a solid game for the first half, then bring on Joel & Takulua with a couple of other fresh legs early in the second half with the intention of ripping shreds out of Bristol for the last 30 minutes.

Last of all, Bristol only have to starve us of ball and we will be rubbish, so please don't punt the ball back to them unless there is no other option. Opposition teams have our territorial game sussed & know how to snuff it out, as Wuss did last week. If we want 5 points we have no choice, we have to keep the ball & use it with determination, otherwise we won't see the try line all game.
