I would guess something very similar to last Friday.

Doubtful. The entire back 3 will change and I can see the props being the same as played against Australia

We have kind of run out of props - I guess the new guy (De Robertis) will get a start with maybe Bucknall or Harris.

Back 3 will probably have Manu & Robinson replacing Alex & Agulla, but what about full back ??

Would probably want to rest JC as well, but with Woods in plaster ... ?

I guess some (more) Academy lads will get a run out, but as BJ says it will be the core team from the Quins game.

I still think we can win this one as ospreys are struggling too !!

Seems to be sold out though - but with very curious wording:

"The ticketing system currently indicates that no seats are available for this performance. This performance may not yet be onsale, may be sold-out or have other issues. Please try at a later time or contact customer service."


What a performance.

There is only something like a 6,000 capacity.

Watch out for Alex Lewington at 15, he has looked really impressive in the Academy games, shame Charlie Clare the Academy hooker isn't on the bench - another great prospect. Awesome to see Robinson starting at 14, I hope he repeats his pre-season hat-trick!! :smt023

So.... who is Camilo Ocampo?


EDIT: Forget my question - I actually went to the original article. 20-year old London-born prop.

I was kinda hoping he might be a gnarly veteran of many Spanish internationals. But it appears not.

I had to read our team slowly to recognise it!! Good opportunity for some of the squad players but does show the priority of the LV Cup. :smt039

Good to see some of the youngsters get a game.

I'd be in favour of handing it over lock stock and barrel to the Academy Squad personally, as they seem to beating everyone put in front of them.

I notice Ospreys aren't exactly pulling up any roots with their selections either!

Good luck Tigers!
