Can see this being an A league team with a few more senior squad players in it.

would def like to see
Evans @ 7
Odogwu on the wing or on the bench.

At least.

Paraphrasing from the Radio Leicester interview. Everyone seems to be missing the bit where he said "we'll field a strong side, but..."

It won't be as bad as people are suggesting I wouldn't think. But players who need a rest will be rested.

I think it will be key starters and areas we lack depth will be rested.

That's my suspicion.

I suspect that rather than deciding who to play, they will start by deciding who can't play or who they don't want to play, then see what's left and tinker with them. Maybe play someone who could do with a rest if they are short in that position.

Looks like it won't be a crunch match like I hoped when I bought tickets..might have some money on Bath tryscorers to ease the pain of the loss :smt003

Surprised Toulouse want Ghiraldini for 3 years he has looked rather pedestrian this year... :smt017

I agree Bateman has been better so I wouldn't risk him against Bath as we are gonna need both him an Thacker for the Semi Final

Unless it is an editorial decision to only mention the more extraordinary injuries he sustained, I'm very surprised that he's not also suffering from concussion.
Progress requires that the fears of both sides be more fully aired, not that one side wins.

Would love to see Bateman start a game but understand your reasoning.
Haven't seen Odogwu since his try against the Pumas and be great to see him out.

Kpj, I would be a bit disappointed if your team proves correct and I think a few others would be!
