A decent bench front row, hopefully.

Good team, hopefully enough to get the win. The 10/12/13 will be worth watching, interesting call. Maybe they do read these forums!

Maybe MOC has decided to pick the fans choices so that they won't criticise him if it doesn't work ?

Well, on current recent showings, we do all know far more than him!

It`s taken MO`C how long to understand that Toomua is an international 10 and should play there when Golden boy is unavailable. At least the penny has dropped now and I fully expect to see a far more cohesive unit take the field tomorrow and actually think we will win this game now.

Glory-effing-be!

Shame about Wells but at least he's on the bench and should make an impact. Is Malouf crook?

Thanks Mike.

Have lost track of the multiple identities some feel they have to resort to. Not that I really care anyway!

Last chance saloon isn’t it? He’s finally cottoned on to the fact that he needs to do something different as opposed to rinse and repeat

Congratulations on having the insight to know that Wells wouldn’t start! No one else saw that coming.

But “Knowing” Toomua wouldn’t start at 10 was genius.

Oh wait....

But if Bakewell can get our forwards being a bit more direct and physical while coming from deeper we might see enough front-foot ball to allow that midfield to play.

A big North Lincs posse coming to this game on their tractors and trailers, biggest posse since 2003 I think at 10...could be messy later

See the wrong change comment in Advice on beers in Leicester thread, sometimes you win, mostly you loose.

I think (hope) we will win this one and perhaps one other. For the rest we'll be scrapping for LBs. I still doubt we'll make 6th though. Even with our best pack (almost), it's weaker than most, but surely not Quins.

Since Georgie Ford's last game we've had two dead rubbers in Europe and two development games, so much as the players getting to know each other might have been advisable this is the first 'important' game Toomua is truly needed at fly half - could be argued as actually being a sound decision, good timing?

Have read on FB that Toomua has been playing with a broken toe, couldn't play 10 as couldn't kick.
(Can't confirm whether or not it was a sweary guy called Matthew from Australia)

Yeah, fair comment, but Toomua did play at ten latterly, so not just dropping Joe Ford
