I don't get this obsession for dropping players from a winning team.
Harry has been part of a team that has won 4 games on the bounce and which has secured 19 out of a maximum of 25 league points.

On what basis can anyone here drop any player from the team other than for injury or rotation? (Fly half is hardly a rotation position)

By all means have Francis or Myler on the bench and bring on as needed but don't start dropping players just because you don't think they are the best in that position. After all, for all we know Harry's style might be perfect for Luther!

Itís not dropping itís sensible rotation. Look at the games these players are playing, since 12 August there will have been a game every weekend until the first rest for the first team being 11 November when the AWC starts. Considering we have Clermont, Sarries, Exeter and Wasps after Gloucester there needs to be other options available. With all due respect to Harry, weíve had some good wins but face tougher opposition to come. Whilst there has been some good, there has been some aimless kicking and game management which will be important in games to come.
