Crikey - that is pretty much the team I would have gone for. If fit, I would have had Kitchener on the bench (for me if Deacs plays he should start). If Crane is only 90% then it makes sense to have a proper number 8 on the bench.

Very strong team - and a decent chance of 5 points especially as Sale may have to go on the attack to get full points themselves

An excellent team. Agreed would have had Kitch on the bench myself.

Pleased Crane is fit, equally pleased to see TTTE on the bench.

Would have gone for Flood myself but it's a close call....

Surprised Scully is not starting, especially for the quality of his kick chase!

A strong-looking team for what is set to be a tough game.
Going to need to grind this out, stay accurate and hopefully play the ref sensibly.
Good to see Crane back - just hope he is fully fit; and,one in the eye for the conspiracists, TTTE on the bench. Just hope that he avoids a card if/when he comes on.

Is Kitch injured? I would have him on the bench for sure.

I would give Mele a start as well.

Can't wait for the game.....

Loving the 23 (apart from Kitch, Hawkins and the long-term injuries).
However, is it about time we started with Mele and used Youngs as a sub? It would send out a really positive message to both players, plus all of the fans who are increasingly suspecting cronyism.
Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely in the YBY camp, but he needs to know that his starting berth isn't nailed on.

I spoke to Kitch at the Awards Dinner this week and he certainly isn't injured!

Strong team so hopefully a good win.

Like most, I would have preferred Kitchener on the bench - so hope he is being rested and not injured or out of form (or favour).

Also think it is a bit hard on Scully taking the bench but I assume we want to get Morris match-fit. Scully has been a good player for us over the last few games (he's played).
