Just hope that this can be seen as "not 1st XV" games, would you expect Baff and Sarries to field 2nd and development teams?

Of course it clashes with international games. They play these games over international match weekends! It's done deliberately.

I expect Baff to target this type of competition with predominantly their 1st side as they have won .........what ? Just cos it's in the international period is immaterial!
