Bob

Is that

a) Your prediction?
b) On your Christmas list for Santa?
c) Inside knowledge?
d) A rumour?
e) A 'fact' that can be verified and sourced?
f) WUMing?
g) Something else entirely?
h) Some combination of the above?
i) All of the above?

You can but dream.

Mat Tait will be in the mix according to the Mercury here.
Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

According to Cockers on the Podcast (18th Dec), Tait and Matera will figure in the squad, Mafi is back in the country this weekend, but he implied that Steve will not be in the squad this week. Fluffy will not be ready until Sale or Bath. Toby has a tight glute, so Cockers was being quite cagey about the likelihood of his being in the squad.

You obviously do not listen to the Tigers Rugby hour on Radio Leicester. Cockers explicitly said that he came through his run out with Nottingham and will play some part this weekend. :smt003

is anyone else having problems finding out how to get to Allianz Park? The link from the Sarries web site to the page on how to get there does not function, there is only a voice mail function when I phoned them and I've not had a reply.

I think you can get a shuttle bus from Mill Hill East station, but not convinced as this information seems to be quite old.

anyone got any information? thanks in anticipation!

In any case I'm looking forward to seeing lots of Tigers fans there.

sorry folks, missed the other thread. slap wrist.

I predict some changes.
New front row, Boris Briggs and Balmain. Matera to start at 7 and Lamb and Tait both to start.
Still a very good team and easily good enough and hungry for the win.

[quote=http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/Tait- ... story.html]We will rest some guys and rotate the squad a bit," said Cockerill. "It has been two very tough weeks in Europe, certainly in the forward pack.
[/quote]

I get the sense that Cockers will do some rotation. I don't expect Tait to start, but I wouldn't be surprised if Hamilton and Deacon are rested completely, whilst I'd expect the Youngs, Ayerza, Cole and Salvi to drop to the bench:

15. Niall Morris
14. Miles Benjamin
13. Matt Smith
12. Dan Bowden
11. Niki Goneva
10. Ryan Lamb
9. David Mele
1. Boris Stankovic
2. Neil Briggs
3. Frasier Balmain
4. Ed Slater
5. Graham Kitchener
6. Jamie Gibson
7. Pablo Matera
8. Jordan Crane

16. Tom Youngs
17. Marcos Ayerza
18. Dan Cole
19. Seb De Chaves
20. Julian Salvi
21. Ben Youngs
22. Owen Williams
23. Mat Tait
Richard Burnett

Cover at Fly-Half from David Mele I presume, so Ben's likely playing the whole game. Owen Williams wont be happy. Not forgiven for forgetting his passport?

Tait, Matera and Hepetema all in the 23 returning from injury, de Chaves and Schuster too. That's a BIG rotation!!
