Toomua took a bang didn't he.
Would prefer Hardwick on the bench over J.ford.

Glad Holmes is starting.

Holmes pulled his hamstring just when he was cementing a place in the XV. Hoping he can score some tries in the last game of the season.

Tbh Ford/Toomua with Tait is better than Ford/Toomua so could be a blessing

MT is a big miss, his defence is much underrated as is his general leadership of the backline. That puts even more responsibility on George Ford's shoulders - let's hope he's up to it.
I saw Marika Vunibaka play

No. Play to get the win. Any kickable penalties, kick them.

When I watched the reverse fixture at Welford road earlier in the season, I was shocked at how physically bigger the sale team was compared to us. Their second rows were massive. I have a feeling we may struggle this weekend.
There is never any points for 2nd place...

I am ambivalent. I believe no good will come of the coaching etc but equally is it worth the disruption? Cockers was sacked for less, and in my view a far better manager/coach and especially motivator.

How and why is Joe Ford on the bench ahead of Hardwick?
