What team for the Clash

Post by Chobbsy » Fri Mar 31, 2017 11:00 am

So with the wider faster pitch of Twickenham, surely TV is a must to start again Bath, who else should start and be our "finishers"

Massive call but I would be tempted to drop BOC,start LM and give Thacker the finishing role.

And Evans, a true open-side, no place for him?

I worry about Evans, after a great start he doesn't seem to have kicked on at all, I don't know if he is injured or what?
He certainly seems to have dropped out of contention.

It's a big old pitch. Perhaps FB and 10 with OW at 12?

Should be a decent game. I'll be at the Barmy Arms beforehand.

Fast back row will be a real bonus, Bath have a good back row.

Roberts at 13 for pace or stick with Tait who's defensively better? Does Betham come back into the squad? I'd stick with the same forwards in the 23 though with possibly Thacker coming in that's all.

I would have JPP, Thompstone and TV as my back 3 with Betham definitely on the bench

Tough one, I think Roberts has earned the right recently but then like you said Tait is better defensively which might be the difference :smt017

Defence and set piece is key.
Make the first up tackles and give them slow ball to work with and they will struggle.

You would have to go for Tait. More big game experience, offers greater cover and a good boot for a big pitch.

Id leave Betham out tbh and bench Roberts,he hasn't done enough lately to deserve a place for me. Plus Roberts is super quick and his pace will be invaluable late in the game
