Was Owen not just a case of cramp? I hope so as he's looked more than useful in the games he's played.

Ye that's what I thought. With Toomua still out December could be a big month for him.

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 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
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 only Tait and Barrow return to squad - Logo, Brady, manu and MT still a little off....

...and OTY going through the HIA protocol so not a certainty for this weekend?

Sounds like generally good news on the injury front! Brady must have gone behind Holmes in the pecking order when he returns.

Shame to be without Ellis but really chuffed for the man to be in the mix for Samoa. It seems that the Tigers will have a good stall to pick from come the big games over the next few months.

Like most on here upset from a tigers point of view but made up that genge is in the match day team, completely deserved he’s having and amazing season. I’m just wondering where’s he playing/covering as both mako and Marler have also been retained.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but I chatted To Telousa Veianu when he visited the try line club just prior to the Anglo/Welsh fixture against Gloucester and I'm positive that he told me that he would be away on international duty for the Worcester match as Tonga had a fixture against the Barbars on that day?

Yes it was just cramp. Confirmed by Owen himself on last night's Leicester Tiger's Rugby Show. He said he is good to go for this weekend.

According to this list Tonga don't have a match this weekend.
