We do need depth back.

McGuigan and Mulipola look good additions so far. I think our biggest miss is Robinson at lock. Not because hes necessarily better than either Green or Witty and would start but to have one of them on the bench. Cavubati looked suspect to say the least when he came on.

Would be good to have some idea of what is going on. For example Lockwood was announced n bench against Doncaster. I know we wont though for reasons made clear by Deano before and I respect him for that.

I am not concerned at all, the team actually performed pretty well in both games & it is a long old season. The league table is meaningless until well into the season.

Sarries will ship 50+ points past some teams this season, we actually confronted them very well. I don't think any team would have stopped the mental rampage by Tiggers for the first 15 minutes on Saturday. After that we did well, especially considering the 20+ points deficit to be made up.

Psychologically we need a win at Wuss, but then Wuss are in the same boat, so it should be a tough old game.

I think we just looked very rusty v Edinburgh in the friendly and have continued that on in the last 2 games...but we'll find our feet again.

Fix the defence first and foremost...then the rest will come together.

Agree above...can Tait please start at FB. He's a rock solid premiership FB which would be better at the moment.

My one big concern is Mr Flood. He really isn't on form at the moment and he needs to find it quick as he's dropping a few clangers.

I thought Flood was good against Saracens?

I don't think he was great Steve, I felt he lacked a bit of imagination in attack that I would expect from a 70 cap former England international.

I think that if Johnny Williams is fit he may be brought into the midfield as he looked good in attack and great in defence and could offer different options.

I agree with that Pit, he looked very sharp the glimpses we have seen of to break the lines...

Williams certainly won't miss any tackles if pre season is anything to go by. Massive in defence
