No Robshaw? Is he injured? Or nursing his wounded pride at not being selected for the Lions tour? :smt010

Pretty much their strongest team available, the only weakness i can see is the quality of some of their subs compared to the ones we are likely to pick

Slater and Ayerza missing are a big blow as both have been in fantastic form.
Of course this is my own opinion and other posters may have a different perceived factual viewpoint.

Front Row battle will be key. Which way the ref decides to penalise at scrums could be an issue if he targets our front row!

Spot on Wiggo IMO. Hopefully Mr Garner will not ignore Johnston's regular inability to bind :smt023
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

Glad Ant Allen is fit too.
Could Smurphs have made the bench instead of Dossers lad? or is that just sentimentality.

You're too sentimental TB. He said on East Mids TV (which you prob do not see) that he doubted whether he run out again after last weeks game!

Some Quinns fans point out on their unoffy that they don't do well when Easter is skipper, all helps in the cause,their confidence might be knocked.

You're right there wiggo, no East Midlands tv up here, though I do try to catch up on the Mercurys web site, maybe the tv is on the web as well, never looked.
