Would have liked to have seen a bit more youth in there, but this seems to be Dean Richards preferred bunch of starters, or there abouts

Is Josh Hodge away with England already?



Stay safe everyone, and look after each other!

Dean must view this as a tough game...as he's gone with many of the 1st XV

Seemingly more about the conditions according to his pre match comments on the offy.

Summary of: Crap pitch, floodlights and little rest since Sunday.

No youngsters amongst the forward starters or subs apart from Jamie B. Slightly disappointing.

Excellent that Williams is feeling ok to play consecutive games

9 changes and back to a stronger 15
Clearly do to with a 5 day turnaround as Dean states

Nottingham have only won three games, a two day turnaround shouldn’t have an impact really.

I commented on another thread this morning that I'd love to see Peterson and Robinson play together as I think they're our strongest combination... Deano must have been reading the chat. Cannot wait to see what a Williams & Wacokecoke midfield looks like.

Surprised but pleased to see Williams starting again. Strong team and no reason it can't be another decent 5-pointer.

Well that's given it the kiss of death.

Good side, fingers crossed for a bonus-point win

Another 5-pointer hopefully, but decent would make a nice change!

That backline is quite exciting. Williams and Wakcokecoke together could be a potent centre partnership.

5 day turnaround makes quite a difference. Lads probably only had a day and half worth of intense training if that. The way these boys throw themselves about in the contact they need to be looked after.

As people have stated , crap pitch , crap floodlights , 5 day turnaround only means one thing....... strongest team possible. Like the look of it.

Late change
Will drops out, Nagusa at 8 & Gary moves to 6
Chick on the bench
