As strong as it gets, I'd be interested to know the ins and outs at Tighthead, I reckon Heyes and Leatigaga must be a very close call every week.

Also interesting to see Gigena ahead of Bateman in the pecking order....

Disappointed not to see Lewis & Kerr involved in the squad.

Leatigaga took a knock at the end of his last game, so this might be the reason Heyes is selected.

I wonder if in terms of scrummaging they come as a replacement unit rather than individuals

Re: Team's up

I'd forgotten that about Leatigaga, thanks Simon

‘ Calum Green has had an operation on a fractured cheekbone and joins fellow forwards Hanro Liebenberg and Guy Thompson on the injury list. ’

Me too - but I suppose in Lewis' case, if you pick Wells at 6 then his value as the replacement is compromised and I think the Boladau/Reffell combination on the bench makes more sense. Maybe if Guy was fit/selected you could have Lewis as a luxury option.

Don't know what Kerr has to do - unless he's still carrying a knock?

That's a pretty good side though all things considering. I'm slightly hopeful of having bragging rights around B**h on Saturday afternooon,,,

Which considered - that's not a bad pack we're putting out.

Both decent teams and both lost last time out, be an interesting encounter.

Shouldn't be too claggy at the Wrec, good job we're not playing on Sunday. Good team but fear a bit for our wingers against their big units. For once I think we have a stronger pack.

Re: Team's up
Rich W 24 January, 2020 14:27
I don't fear for Jonah.

Jordan's defence has been improving considerably too.

Re: Team's up
Rich W 24 January, 2020 15:07
Perhaps so but I still fear some of his decision making is insufficiently secure.
