With the majority of our first choice back line away who do we think will or should be in the squad Saturday?
I guess Don is injured at the moment although haven't read anything but with competition for places in the back row fierce even if he was fit i wouldn't think he would be thrown in without any game time behind him.
1 Moon
2 Yeandle
3 Williams
4 Dennis
5 Hill
6 Ewers
7 Kvesic
8 Simmonds
9 Maunder
10 Steenson
11 Woodburn
12 Hendrickson
13 Bodilly
14 Flats
15 Simmonds

I like Joe but I personally think Steeno is better at manoeuvring the pack around I think as others have alluded to that is what we will plan our game around.
Our back line has looked quite predictable so I personally would have Joe at 15 as a second playmaker and Bods at 13 with his footwork for variety rather than just crashing it up at 12 and 13.
A bit of a risk playing both our 10s from the start so I would think the coaches won't do this and Joe will be on the bench with Bods at 15 and Whitts at 13.
Any more injuries in the backs and we are really struggling.
I expect Quin's to give us a very hard game and I wonder if a little bit of rain might help us and hinder them on Saturday?

Not bad Zh, would sooner have Cuthbert on the bench (if fit), Short is not the player he use to be imo.

I would have to start with Vermeulen instead of Simmonds at 8.

I think we've got to start with Joe. He's the future.

Maybe start with Kev with Simmo on the bench.

It's not clear when the injured players are returning. Don, Devo, little Stuart, Cuthbert.

Since Devoto is featured on the poster for the game (see Twitter and website), does that imply he's in the squad?
