Teamís up

Iím a little surprised by some of the selections. No Nic David for a start playing Heward instead. As some had suggested they are trying the Venter Lawrence combination and Du Preez in the back row. Must have decided that physically was really important. No sign of Batley or of Fidow.

I like the feel of that side, we have a chance.

Is that Harlequins' second team?

Iíd like to think we have more than a chance. We should be winning this with relative comfort.

Back row says a lot to me as to how weíre going to play the game.

That is a pretty good Quins side to me.

Beck Cutting is young and put in a big shift on Friday so a little surprised to see him on the subs bench! They are certainly giving him experience! Yes I agree we need to win this fixture.

More than happy with Cornell du Preez at 8, still feel he's the best pick in that position. I would've like to have seen Nick David in again aswell, looks a talent.

I like the look of our selection, and on paper we are the stronger of the two team selections. We'll still need to play our best if we want to win.

As everyone else has mentioned, the only possible surprise is Heward for David. Perhaps Heward is such a talent we need to give him game time, whereas we already know what David can do. My only concern is our defence out wide, not normally a strong point for Howe, and Heward was caught out of position a few times against Wasps. I don't think there is any lack of endeavour, though.

Pack looks strong, I'm not too bothered who plays in the back row as I really don't think we've a weak player. The front five looks like it's our strongest choices, so we should fair pretty well in the set piece.
