Tigers vs Falcons

Post by JP14 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 8:42 pm

Now I am not sure as to whether Owen, Genge or Toomua fit and if they are ok it isn't safe to risk them on a plastic pitch imo so this would be my team.

I guess it depends on whether the players have significant injuries or simple knocks/strains.

The England players should be available - pick the strongest fit team , then give them a complete rest while the AWCup is on .

I forgot about Pakalani if he plays Centre we should give him a shot

He should be given a shot centre or not, why buy him and not even try him?

Isn't that when they'd likely be playing for England? Not much of a 'complete rest'....... :smt003

However, I do agree that if they're available this week, and fit, they should be picked. Always pick the strongest available 23.

I believe he (TB) had to have his gammy foot redone?

I hoping that Tooma is fit to play? I think Gareth Owen is crocked for a while? Maybe he came back too soon? It will be tough to get points at the Falcons.

I know I've just said (above) pick the strongest possible 23, which Toomua would be part of, but I would actually be tempted to rest him on the artificial pitch unless he really is 100% - which I sincerely hope he is.

I thought it was a question of removing the plate/screws inserted over the summer, rather than a wholesale redo. That's what he suggested on twitter. If so, and surely he would know, that's probably not as bad as a full redo.

I mean't - rest the non English Internationals during the AW period . The 1st Autumn International isn't till Nov 11 so the likes of Cole etc will have a fortnight off.

Ok yes I probably should have phrased it better, if he is a centre than this could a be a chance to show to his worth
