If they're not fit/available for Boxing Day against the Falcons I would say it would be better to leave their return until we play Treviso, or at the earliest, a bench appearance against Saints - but we can't risk both of them on the bench.
Newcastle have a plastic pitch too, I believe.

Are they rolling it up and bringing it with them for Boxing Day, then? :smt044 :smt044

I just realised my mistake elsewhere and thought I'd better come to have a look to see how much abuse I'd got. Thanks for taking it easy on me :-)

Trimmers, I would think rested as he has put in some really big shifts, and with our upcoming fixtures we need him at full fitness.

So Benjamin and Camacho - are they ever going to play for Tigers again? I thought there was a comment a few weeks back that Camacho had been looking good in training so what's happened there?

Also I understood that Manu and JDV were supposed to be fit for this one?
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

Cockers stated this week that JDV and Manu would not be fit for this fixture.

Two men who will not be featuring in the Newcastle game are centres Jean de Villiers and Manu Tuilagi.

Tigers supporters are itching to see both internationals back on the pitch after long-term injuries but, although they are edging closer to a return, Cockerill said it was "too soon" for both men.


Camacho played for the A team on Monday night, looked a bit rusty - understandably.

Really like the look of that side, great to see Logo and Tait back! Excited to see Pearce and Fonua and what a bench!!

Maybe I'm over confident but would be disappointed if Tigers didn't get the full 5 points!! :smt027 :smt027 :smt027

GK Sorry to say it but Camacho is not good enough for our A Team, you would not like to see him selected for the 1st. Benjamin must also be way down the list, we have better.

He was good enough to be considered to play a first XXIII part away against Munster. Albeit a couple of minutes off the bench.
