Team Prediction for Sunday
SparkyBris 06 November, 2019 15:30
Given how Exe muscled their way from behind to beat Wuss last weekend, we're going to need some beef to be competitive. Jake Heenan was also in the press conference, so I guess he's starting?!?

I'm going with:

1. J. Woolmore
2. S. Malton
3. J. Afoa
4. D. Attwood
5. J. Joyce
6. S. Luatua
7. J. Heenan
8. N. Hughes
9. A. Uren
10. C. Sheedy
11. M. Protheroe
12. S. Piutau
13. P. O'Connor
14. L. Morahan
15. C. Piutau

16. H. Thacker
17. Y. Thomas
18. M. Lahiff
19. C. Vui
20. D. Thomas
21. H. Randall
22. W. Hurrell
23. I. Lloyd



Supporting Bristol since... since... Oh, not enough fingers.

I’d like to see Ed Holmes as well as Shaun Malton, both ex Exe involved
I’m not sure PL will use our perceived first team.

We do need enough beef but also enough skill and speed to score against them - tricky balancing act - so not sure if we need Chris Vui &/or Harry Thacker starting if Dan Thomas isn't.

From memory, how it played out last week with Exe against Worces is not that uncommonwith Exe matches in that Worces held their maul well enough until the end of the match. So it maybe we need some beef to come on near the end rather than starting with too much of it.

I’d start Thacker and Vui, but that’s the team I’d pick.

I’m very pleased with Woolmore, starting to think he’s a real player.

Agree with Luke Smith, feel we may bulk up the midfield and move O'Conor out wide. Protheroe wasn't listed as injured last week so would have him on the bench over Madigan but apart from that would go with that team.

As it is the last league game before the first European fixtures though I wouldn't be surprised to see Attwood start.

One thing we must still do is play to our strengths. We are not going to win an arm-wrestle with Exe so we need enough creativity and skill to attack them with speed, be that from speedy and skillful forwards or speedy and skillful backs.

I agree with sparkybris other than Hurrell instead of o'conor to start.
