With Genge and Cole being retained we have to hope that Bateman Cilliers and possibly Logo are fit for Saturday or it will be a hard day at the coal face for the pack

Why wasn't Veaniu playing for Tonga? Surely they don't have better full backs/wingers. Unless they're trailing people.

Sorry if this has already been done.
Schhhh!! They probably haven't missed him yet

Sky sports mention Te’o one of the 9 released back to there club, hopefully he was rehabbing with them, as I don’t fancy him running at our possible back line.

Sorry JP he is no where near good enough for premiership rugby. It’s all very well saying put him on the bench but if there was a match ending injury 5 minutes in to one of the starting back row, that could potentially cost the match
I wouldn't called Baumann premiership standard either but injury and international unavailability will mean that he is probably on the bench this Saturday.

I respect your opinion but I do believe that Tuilagi Jr deserves his chance, maybe not against Worcester but at some point during this premiership season
I respect your opinion too and that is what forums are about
Oh the irony..... :smt046

So if F Tuilagi isn't good enough to play in the AP yet (and he isn't) then why would you include him in a match day squad other than against Worcester?

I think we better hope there aren't too many scrums .Batemen and Cilliers will do a decent job but if we have to use Bauman and Traynor it will be a bit tricky .

I haven't seen much of Worcester this season, but what I have seen has left me a bit confused as to their lowly league position.

I know they don't have a big squad and they have had injuries to some key personnel, but they do play some nice running rugby and their forward unit is pretty strong. They look to have turned a corner with their win on Saturday and will prove a hand full whether it was a false dawn or not.

Might be a game that grinding out a win is the best option. Nothing fancy.

"Leicester Tigers' Tom Brady, Logovi'i Mulipola, Matthew Tait, Pat Cilliers and Dom Barrow all fit and available to face Worcester, Matt O'Connor confirms."

According to BBC radio Leicester

I read it, funnily enough, I also understood it - hence my second paragraph. It doesn't alter the fact that they play some nice rugby and despite adversity, should be higher up the table.

Looks a highly likely prediction RB - but why Owen out? Not seen that. Assume Brady more likely to play Sunday in A game. Incidentally agree with general view that Baumann not set things alight so far but Traynor looks a handy no 3 L/H to me.
