Apperently there will be no Allen, Parling, Stanko or Hawkins. All ruled out by injury.

A few noticeable absentees there in our team...Allen, Stankovich, Parling etc and Flood being preferred to Williams...maybe Williams is still carrying a knock?

Front row replacements for Saints look much stronger. Allen is a huge loss. Wouldn’t be surprised is Flood was picked for experience rather than a Williams injury for this one.

Front row will need to do 80 mins.

The web site says Parling Hawkins Stanko and Scully are not being considered due to concussion protocols, but that does not explain AA's absence!

Also according to Cockers in the Mercury earlier this week we would have virtually a full squad to choose from - more smoke and mirrors...!

Still a great team though, well capable of winning!!

The injuries weaken the bench mostly (3 good locks anyway in 23 without Parling), but AA missing is the worst... Dan B will have to have one of his best games in a Tigers shirt... and just maybe he will, he has a settled future so mind set should be good.

And Crofty?

Even though Allen is a big loss in defence, Bowden is great in attack, and his defence isn't exactly poor. Floody will also be great at getting the ball moving. We just have to win the forwards battle now and we're sorted! :)

Has AA still got the knock on the knee he picked up at Sale ?
He was on a pair of crutches after the game.

Can only re-iterate others comments - starting line up looks good enough to win although I always have the heart in my mouth defensively when Allen isnt playing. Front row bench is a big worry for me. I know Dan is a big loss but I really hope chickens dont come home to roost tomorrow night! Probably not the best idea to throw him into a SF but Pascquali looked decent when he came on last week. Fingers crossed that Logo , Tom and Marcos can last 80 minutes ..... or at least to 60 mins when we get 30 points up :smt038

Very happy with that team........Dan Bowden(glad he is available - had a :censored: nose, suspected broken after last weeks game), Mafi , Kitchener all good.
Bit worrying on the bench but this team can compete and is capable of winning the game.

No doubt this team can compete but cannot understand why Tigers should be forced to lose so many players to injury protocol rules as a direct result of the match being brought forward. I would like to think that Tigers have made a formal complaint to Premiership Rugby?
Without hope we are nothing, keep the faith, a Tiger for eternity
