I would love Burns to start at 10 with Watson at 15 for this one - see if they can get this backline unlocked.

I really hope Louw is available - he and Underhill could do a passable imitation of England's back-row set up. Alternatively, he could give Mercer a rest. Zach is in danger of running and battering himself into an early retirement. He's heading for the full 'mummy' (Egyptian rather than Dearest) look, and we're only a quarter of the way through the season.

Irish officials (Sm124) Both our record and their performances (Irish officials) has been absolutely shocking to say the least and from what I saw last week I am not filled with any optimism.

I am sure Zach will be rested but alas not until TF is fit and raring to go - I know Louw has played for the Boks at 8 but he is not a natural and we lose a lot of his qualities.... Personally I have been really impressed with Mike Williams as a 6, he seems to have discovered his Mojo again and is the presence and force we have been missing in that position for a long time.

Why worry who plays at 11/13/14/15 when we have an impenetrable blockage at 12, and a 9 whose sole purpose is to continually kick away possession.
Burns must play 10 to, at least, give us some modicum of hope.

Chudley has been OK this year to be fair. He has passed a lot more and run a lot more.

Chudley has been better in the attacking half. In defence he is still glacially slow at setting up box kicks and usually does not put them in a contestable position and therefore ends up turning over possession. We need to improve our exit strategy or at least the speed of same.

We will lose a lot without Mercer, though he must be carrying a few bumps & bruises. The trouble is that without Faletau we have no-one to break through effectively & take opportunities. We have to win this to have any chance of progression. Maybe the rolling maul can return.

Quins have been mixed this season, sounding good one week and not so great the next (like us, I suppose!). I must admit I haven't seen much of their play, apart from some of their game v Clermont, where they showed plenty of fight but, unsurprisingly, were always pressured and on the back foot.

Are they a team we can get on top of in the set piece? I see they've a few injuries in the backs, including Tapuai, so wondering what we might be up against.

Hopefully JC and AW will be back to bolster the backline. Given how well played Freddie played at the Stoop last year, I'd be tempted to go AW at 15 with Fred at 10.

Not sure, but was in a knee brace two days ago so if he’s fit then he heals very quickly. Hopefully just precautionary and nothing too serious.

Zach's knee did appear to take a nasty turn in that final tackle. Hope he hasn't done ligament damage.

I'd like to see us going all out to win this game and would prioritise it ahead of Sarries. If we lose this we are as near as dammit out of the HC and we could pick accordingly down the line based on that. If we lose to Sarries it is one game out of 22 and there is time and opportunity to make up for that. And - as a general rule - i don't think you can assess the importance of the next game but one until you've played the next game.

I think Zac's knee was hurt in the first half, you might remember he took a low pass that was going behind him, turned to catch and pass on then was tackled late whilst crouched stationary and facing the wrong way. The right leg was badly twisted but he carried on.

'Game Changers' - what an absolutely awful euphemism that is. Their job is to 'change the game' - well you wouldn't want to change anything if it's going ok. So the implication is that the starters have stuffed up and your job is to come on and rescue it.

“Joe is a phenomenal talent and a powerful athlete, and we must manage him very carefully in the coming months to allow for the issues he has come back from Japan with to begin to be resolved.

Very dad news also for Henry Thomas - I wonder if we will see him in a Bath shirt again with his contract up at the end of this season. He tore his ACL before and needed a couple of ops.

He wouldn’t have had the game time at Bath anyway so he would have gone the way of Jennings (Brett Heron?) and others IMO. Going back to Scotland was definitely the right decision for him and from what I understood at the time there wasn’t much discussion to be had?

I've just realised what the problem is, our coaches didn't travel with the team today.

If they were at the ground they'd have done something about our standard of play.

Before the game Mr Hooper said or words to the effect of “ We’ve had a really good week in training and identified what we need to do beat Harlequins “ so what happened Stuart ?

Ref really badly suckered by Joe Marler - top refs shouldn't fall for something so blatant.
Gives 3 to Quins - thanks ref.

Bad hit on Watson.
Player knows Watson is falling, but Quins 2 stays high deliberately.
Yellow given.

Poor game.
Poor performance.
Poor result.

Still no win in the yellow jerseys?

We sneaked into Europe again so that’s no surprise given our seeding. It’s the manner of it which grates a bit.

Boyce et al haven’t done themselves any favours at all - Obano, Dunn and Stewart are well in front of the race now.

That really was an awful performance, almost matched by the Ref but not quite. Add in injuries to Ewels and Watson and it truly is a night to forget.

Anyone still think that our work experience DOR is the right man for the job?

Come to think of it what is our attack coach actually doing?

A key problem is that too many of our players lack basic skills and therefore make too many errors. - knock ons, poor passes, poor decision making under pressure. The best players have those core skills and therefore the error count is significantly less - simple really!

No idea, but since he took over we have been nothing short of uninspired, lacking ideas, creativity and absolutely impotent in the backs.

All very depressing, especially as a West Ham supporter (Sm147) I wonder if a 35 point cushion will be sufficient to save us from the drop, especially as our players are dropping like 9 pins as normal.

You old cynic, Hooper will no doubt say we’ve had a really good week in training and identified what we need to do beat Saracens.

However this will be followed by the inevitable loss.

Hooper said before the game he was looking forward to us scoring as many points as possible. 9 points was as many as possible apparently.

That game was a great advert for Super Rugby.
