Good news!

Great news for Harry. Interesting that Francis is playing and that Eadie plays at 7. That loanees are starting at 4 and 9 is a clear indication of the injury problems

Starting at 15 is an indication of where Boyd may see his future. There was surely the option to see him at any position in this game. I think 15 makes sense for him.

16/12/2019 13:26
Boyd spoke of harry as a 15 in a saints TV interview a couple of weeks ago.

16/12/2019 13:51
If Beauden Barrett can play 10 or 15 for the All Blacks I am sure Harry can cover more than one position for the Saints. Good to see him back. I really expect big things of him this season.

Makes sense to me. Furbank is fantastic but beyond that we only really have Ace who although he is not bad, he is 30 and already not as good IMO. If we had harry in competition then we would be well covered for the future.

It will be good to have cover for 15 again. Whilst Furbank has been electric this season, he has had to have games off with HIA protorcols. As good as Ace has been, an in form Harry fighting for a spot with an in form Furbank will be great for the side.

I know we've seen Furbank cover 10, but if Harry out performs Furbank and nails down the 15 spot, can Furbank cover elsewhere? 13? Possibly wing? Possibly look at covering 9 duties?

Great news
Welcome back Harry

If Harry can out performance Furbs we will be in an extremely good place as Furbs has looked absolute class this season and it won't matter where he can cover.

I'm glad to see Harry back, but I don't get all the Harry Vs George business. It's so exciting to see two young players in competition for a starting spot.

Tuala is 30(1?) and I don't know how long he has on his current contract. Will it be renewed? Does it need to be? Perhaps he's our updated James Wilson?
So with the style of rotation Boyd plays, two almost equal players in one position must be good for everyone?

If Beauden Barrett can play

"I'm Beauden Barret"

R 'arry can play all across the back as I remember. Welcome back arry.

3-12 Gloucester just before the break and Gloucester having lot more of the pressure overall. Not a particularly invigorating match or signs of anyone shining out above the rest including Harry so far. Our injury list taking its toll at 1st team level and Wandies level.

16/12/2019 20:27
I thought Harry was starting to grow into the game with a few deft touches. Difficult to do much with it being mostly one way traffic

Limping towards half time !
