What I have seen of Radwan suggests he has serious gas but some way off in other areas of his game.

In the era of restricted salary caps I suspect wingers will find that only the very top ones will command the money they once did.

No seen the highlights but wondering if WW and in some reports Ford having off games affected the rest.
Lenny must be fit as was training so hopefully he’ll be in against Wasps with JVP on the bench.

Any signs of any returning players warming up with the side beforehand

I don't think Ford had an off game. He was solid but nothing special, kept looking for a pass that wasn't there. I think he and we (the team) are really missing Dan Kelly. His defensive class has been talked about a lot but how often has he run back against the grain and made the hard yards. Porter can carry powerfully but he looks more comfortable at 13, he doesn't quite have the guile that Kelly has. Prime example being the big Mulipola hit on Ford, Ford is trying to throw a pass and Porter is steaming up but too late. Kelly I'm 100% certain would have been there for that pass and gone into the hole Mulipola had vacated.

Kelly has been such an ever present this season, well until his injury, it's the one position we don't seem to have an instant replacement to drop in (apart from maybe Genge).

What I will say for Ford was that you won't see many flyhalfs putting their bodies on the line to make a try saving tackle like he did on Basham.

Which areas? I thought he did well defensively yesterday.

Kicking game. Defence under the high ball.

Just watched the game, Martin was again so impressive in defence, dominating the opposition every time.
Wiese was a wrecking ball and is desperately missed when not playing.
Chessum with some great lineout steals, and would love to see someone with Radwans pace in our squad

Is Chessum our best lineout forward, defensively, since Crofty?

Fair. If he can develop those areas, from being an all out gas merchant, he would be the ideal replacement for Jonny May.
