13. Beck
12. Mills
11. Nanai

10. Weir
09. Heaney

01. Waller

Unless our other second row options are injured Fatialofa shouldn’t be anywhere near the squad for this game.

He will know and understand what he’s done.

He now needs the opportunity to redeem himself and put the record straight.

Little Kitch should be on the bench instead of Fatialofa, providing he is fit. That doesn't even take into account last week - Andrew played seriously well against Exeter in the prem cup and 1st half vs Wasps.

I don't think that Van Veltz is injured is he JP but Montgomery is ? Kitcherer A has been training so may be on the bench.
I wouldnt put Nanai at 15 especially with Fidow included, very dangerous IMHO. I would go Shillcock, Nanai, Beck, Venter, Humphries.

I agree Rollo that Shillcock would be safer at this stage. I would be disappointed if Howe didn’t make it as his pace would be very useful against Quins.

According to WN Caleb Montgomery may need an operation and Kitchener A wont be involved , neither the new tighthead.
I agree about Howe shrewsburyman, but it was always going to be a choicebetween him and Humphries and we cannot sta that Perry has not taken his chance.
IMHO we need to try to get Lawrence involved.

I haven't got Montgomery in my revised selection Rollo, which means we have all 3 7's injured that's why i have moved Hill to 7 as I feel he is more athletic than GJ and Du Preez

His injury has also created an opening at full-back and Solomons said Melani Nanai, Perry Humphreys, Jamie Shillcock and Jono Lance were all in the mix to replace him.

“There are guys that have played there like Melani, Pezza, Shilly and Jono so there are plenty of options,” Solomons said.

“Scotty (van Breda) can also play there but is away this weekend (on loan) with Southern Kings.”

Nanai is a strong alternative for Solomons having starred in the number 15 jersey with Blues in Super Rugby before moving to Warriors.

But Solomons primarily sees the 26-year-old as a winger and he is expected to remain on the flank for Worcester’s clash with Quins.

“We have to work out what is best for the team — I think that’s the important thing,” Solomons said.

“Melani is a winger that was moved to full-back in his last season at the Blues. But he can certainly play there.”


Reading the article indicates Fidow is definitely in there somewhere meaning Humphries or Nanai won’t be on the wing and may move to fullback. However he sees Nanai as a winger.

So could we see Lance or Shilly at 15 and Humphries steps down??

That would not be my preference.
