Although I'm sure there will be more pressure to get the 'cup final' team on the field towards the end of the season Boyd does seem keen on rest and rotation and trust in the squad. Hopefully we will do what Wasps used to do in their winning years and get everyone fit and firing for the last few games of the season and render the poor performances earlier in the season completely forgotten!

I am also slightly concerned for Piers and his concussions, he's not the biggest for a 12 but doesn't shirk the physical stuff. Many more head knocks and he'll have a very difficult decision to start making. I don't want to be disrespectful in terms of speculating but I think that Dylan's retirement may have had as much to do with that side of things as the grumbly knee. I think most players accept that their bodies are going to be held together mainly by tape towards the end of their career but head injuries are an entirely different kettle of fish. Reading the interview with Furbs someone kindly posted elsewhere on here it seems like Boyd was in absolutely no hurry to push him back following his concussion and involved his parents in the discussion given his relatively young age.
