Sale away (Yes...Enya...zzzzzzzzz)

Post by strawclearer » Tue May 01, 2018 1:44 pm

MO'C discussing potential missing players for Saturday’s trip to Sale:

“Both Sione and Fitz are looking good. Matt Toomua should be fine and the rest of the boys were just a bit battered and bruised.”

Which is MOC code for none of them will be fit to play. Smoke and mirrors.

If Fitzgerald isn’t does that mean Wells will start or will we see Williams moved to 2nd row?

This would be my IDEAL (Mark62 :smt023) matchday squad...

1 Genge
2 TPN
3 Bateman
4 Wells
5 Kitchener
6 Williams
7 BOC
8 Hamilton
9 Youngs
10 Ford
11 May
12 Toomua
13 Tuilagi
14 Holmes
15 Vieanu

Kerr, Gigena, Mulipola, Evans, Mapapalangi, Shazam, Worth & Tait

If it’s a dead rubber (ie if we have already qualified for CC), might I suggest an experimental midfield combination of Toomua at 10, Tuilagi at 12 and Olowofela at 13?

Great news, now all we have to worry about is whether the team can remember what the word "accuracy" means and how to achieve it.

We can get away with a few forward passes then. If only our forwards could pass. :smt001

Can't see Tigers getting a win here, will a LBP be enough for the RCC next year?
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

A bonus point of any kind will be enough for top 6

I'm not watching it. My poor old nerves, blood pressure, wine cellar and bank balance (Swear box) won't take it. Not after the last two efforts!

Catching has been the issue not the passing. Not just the forwards either.

Rugby ability has been the issue. I do not see any points coming from this game given the last few outings
