I really hope the saints can win this game. There are quite a few in the Warriors side that would like to see saints slip up.
I do try and understand the game plan from the coaches perspective but I am struggling.
I don't think there is much option with the front 5 due to Internationals and injury.
The back row is a mystery, Wood and Gibson tread on each other's toes and play the same game in the same space. T is a 7 playing 8. We have an 8 on the bench. I presume as the game progresses we will see T revert to 7 and Eadie take the pitch.
All in all a fairly light weight pack that will not boss the game particularly with Worcs looking for their first win.

Nine Cobus or Nic will have to be on their game against Hougaard who is probably the best 9 in the premiership

Why are we playing Myler who relies on a dominate pack to play his territory game and has been pretty rusty in the last two games.

I just hope we are not relying on the shovel pass to 12 to try and gain a few yards.

Hopefully Francis gets a look in without needing to chase the game.

Great to see Horne back lets hope he gets some decent ball.

Collins is the only real gas we have and despite some silly defensive cock ups goes looking for the ball.

All in all are we playing a territory game without a dominate pack or will we be relying on Myler to set the backs alight.
