Very strong looking team. Hopefully will be able to pick up at least a bonus point at Sale.

Sale look to be putting up their A team against us, although Faf is on the bench rather than starting, alongside Lood de Jager.

Hammersley; Solomona, S James, L James, Yarde; R du Preez, Cliff; Oosthuizen, Webber, Cooper-Woolley, Evans, J-L du Preez, Ross (capt), B Curry, D du Preez.

Replacements: Langdon, Harrison, John, Phillips, De Jager, De Klerk, Curtis, McGuigan.

Good to see WGC is likely to get some game-time.

I think he could be a significant player for us in the future.

FDVM is pretty incredible - the bloke is indestructible and always plays so consistently well. (Sm160)

Has WGC been injured? We were only discussing him last weekend as not seen him

Absolutely right. I thought FDVM was past it and wouldn't cut it this year. Delighted to have been proven very wrong indeed. Would love him to extend into next year too, even with Botha back.

I’m with you on that I didn’t think Franco would make that big an impact this season but he’s been fantastic all season, might not make the headlines but he’s been a great skipper this year.
Hopefully he’s signed on for at least another year.
Mafi, Coleman, Botha and Franco I’d take that all day!!!

The inclusion of Rogerson and Cowan on the bench suggest that they’re planning to pull SO’B off early in the second half which wouldn’t be surprising for his first game back. The 6/2 split on the bench also suggests we’re expecting an arm wrestle, although rather surprisingly it’s currently dry and not very windy at the AJ Bell, which must have come as a bit of a shock to everyone.
