Tigers v Wasps Sunday March 25th

Post by Robespierre » Mon Mar 19, 2018 10:49 am

Will Ellis Genge be available for selection and will Tigers have more or less their first choice side?
Hope so because I'll be over for this game!

Don't see any reason why we shouldn't have a really strong 23 out for this one. Genge starting or on the bench will be a welcome sight. Big big game.

Yes I'm sure MOC said Genge would be available.

What's wrong with BOC? It was Williams and Holmes that went off injured v Wuss.

Big, big, game, hope I can find a bar with it on in Switzerland!!

O’Connor went off remember as Malouf had to go to flanker, I’ll be in Barcelona unfortunately so I’ll have to catch up using the app

After our last two results I'd feel a little bit teased if we fail to beat a Wasps side who are far from 100% and are actually vulnerable to a good old fashioned good hiding given their current situation. I'd given up on this season but the Saracens and Worcester performances have got me dreaming again :smt001. Please let the dream continue.

If Genge is available for selection then he should be No.1 on the team sheet literally. Don;t see the sense of just
putting him on the bench if he is fit enough to play, though Bateman has done well in his absence. My squad of 23
would be:-

1.Genge 2 Youngs 3 Cole 4. Kitchener 5. Fitzgerald. 6, Williams 7. O'Connor 8, Kalamafoni,

9. Harrison. 10. Ford 11. May 12 Toomua 13 Tuilagi 14 Thompstone. 15. Veianu

Replacements

16, Tau Nua 17 Bateman 18 Mullipola 19 Wells 20 Hamilton 21 Simmonds 22 Joe Ford 23 Tait.

I think that this team could deliver the win. :smt026

Yes - both props as well as hooker, 7, 9 and 12!

At a push, he could probably play 10 but, in any event, we've got Toomua and Harrison who could cover 10 if George gets crocked on the day. So - I wouldn't have Joe Ford on the bench. I'd rather see Malouf, Holmes, Smith or even Hardwick! Otherwise, I like Noddy's selection and we really ought to win this one.
