Weather looks good, sunny intervals with a moderate breeze, wrap up warm because the temperature will be 6 to 7 degrees!

My pleasure BA, I do like to see like posts under the same thread.
As for the score I hope we win by a bigger score than in our recent games against Bristol. Hopefully our strong bench and returning Internationals will lift our game!

Impressively thorough preview! Should be a good game tomorrow look at the squads. Personally surprised to see Slade starting so soon but your team is looking worrying strong. All the best for the season anyway!

Good looking 23 for us and in truth Brizzles ain't too shabby. We've seen what they are capable of so need to be at it from minute 1.
Im also surprised to see Henry start and seeing Luke and Jack on the bench..... Thought they might have been given a couple of weeks off....... Not complain tho.
Come on Ex!!

I drink and forget stuff!

Good looking team with a creative edge back on show,lets hope the game plan reflects it. Im not overly supprised to see the lads back in,after all their game time in Japan hasnt been excessive and i expect they are rairing to go!. I also think Rob has an eye on Europe next week and wants em full up to speed.

Surprised, but good to see our England boys back in the 23.

Hopefully Sladey can help Joe create some action.

I thought Nic White coming on sparked some quicker ball last week, and he's a bit more robust against the big boys that Sam (at the moment)

And Don on the bench. Welcome back.

Always a tight one against Brizzle. They are playing well and are desperate to beat us.

Brix are on form so this'll be an interesting rumble but with that lineup, I'll be dissapointed if we don't secure the win.

It's great to have the England contingent back in our side and we have obviously missed them.
In an ideal world I imagine Rob would have liked us to be playing so well that we could give them a bit of downtime post World Cup without them being needed but personally I think it shows how we need them, especially Henry and it also shows how much respect Rob has for this Bris side as a threat.
It will have been a short training week so it is possibly asking a lot for Henry to step straight off a plane from Japan with maybe only 2 or 3 days training behind him and be bang on the money right away.
After the disappointment of last Saturday, getting it out of the system is probably what the trio want to do so can't blame them.
With Bris having had an extra couple of days rest having played Friday compared to our Sunday I expect this to be a tough match and we will need to be on our game straight away.

very happy with that line up. the England boys had to be involved if we are to be ready for Europe. could question why European games are being played 2 weeks after the cup final.
