Tait misses far to many tackles to be our starting full back, cooper was injured last night so not sure he will travel to US, like Harris at 13 but would have JPS as 12, as mentioned above flood will have to earn his place so take him for the bench

Tait misses to many tackles?

I saw him stop Sale scoring a try last night by flying out the line and dislodging the ball 5m out.

He made a try saving tackle last week as well when Ethan Waller made his break and looked to score. Alex Tait clobbered him.

I don't think there is nothing wrong with his defence imho, that Is s bit harsh on him as he always puts out.

Cooper was injured last week, not last night so he might feature for sale. We could use his explosiveness like.

Agree re Harris, he is a warrior in defence, he's so dominant in the tackle. Aye I would go with Socino this weekend he's been impressive off the bench, although matevasi has been good.

Cooper didn't play last night as he was injured, taits tackle success rate against wus was 57% and was 75% last night not the best for your last line of defence
