Think we may see a few more first team squad members in action, who maybe haven’t had that much rugby this season. Harrison for example.
9 day break then to the Sale game so plenty of recovery time

Pakalani is in the Tonga squad to face the barbarians on Friday so won’t be available.

In that case I would bring on Olowofela at fullback and have Smith or Tait on the bench. Catchpole I believe is injured again.

Yet Harrison is a certain and necessary starter for the Sale and Wasps games, and routinely gets enough game time to be at Premiership level. They won't risk him. I thought Simmons deserved a second start but maybe they will rotate him and White. The same will apply to others who cover positions usually held by our internationals. However I reckon they'll want Joe Ford to have more game time ahead of those two games so expect him to start ahead of Hardwick again. All in all don't expect big changes. Worth to FB with Pakalani off could be the sum of it. Who would cover OC?

Considering both him and Olowofela play fullback/outside centre I’m guessing the coaches will flip the coin and decide who goes into both in terms of consistency I would keep Worth at outside centre and have Olowofela at fullback or bring Tait in

Grimlish I take your point about Sam Harrison, but wonder how much time he has had in a real match situation with Joe Ford

Agree, Sam Harrison needs some game time with Joe Ford as preparation for the Premiership games

Fatiaki sounds like Manu's injury replacement used to play for Worcester I imagine this is a trial for him

More likely just a loan option for this game to fill in numbers.

The difference is pretty huge in the squads esp the backline.
Burns has more prem caps than our entire back line together i believe.

Also suggests to me that Worth is 100% in the team next week not surprising though.
