Re: Gloucester Gameplan

As long as we match the intensity with which we played tigs and barf, we should have enough.

The games against Irish as Quins, whilst winning left a fair bit to be desired. On both occasions, we allowed the opposition to be in with a chance. This we need to sort out. Start well and end well is the key.

I'm not sure how the missed A league game will have effected the like of Wood and Francis so i can see them on the bench.

I think the Myler vs Harry choice is a tough one, but it's a nice one to have.

Gloucester have some electric backs so Mylers typical kicking game may not be what's needed, it may also be exactly what Gloucester are expecting with Mylers return to fitness.

So, for me, I'd rest Courtney in readiness for Europe or at least have him on the bench. If we can load up on our forwards sizing we should get some dominance at scrum time.

So id go with...

Ace
North
Horne
Burrell
Collins
Harry
Groom
Waller
Dylan
Brookes
Ali
Ribbans
Paterson
Gibson
Harrison

Assuming everyone is fit.

Bench would be

Haywood
Ma'afu
Ford Robinson
Lawes
Wood
Reinach
Francis
Foden

Whenever Dylan comes off, Courtney to come on as Captain. Harry to continue as he has done previously with Francis to come on and hopefully exploit some tiring legs with his Super Rugby experience.

No half measures... go for the jugular!
