That was one of the puzzling selections for me, He's hardly played since Christmas and when he has played he's hardly been international class

McGuigan was selected for the Baabaas game last year though, and has played for Saxons. He’s just a failsafe selection as George & Cowan-Dickie are still with club for the final, Hartley & Taylor are injured and obviously Tom Youngs is no longer in the frame.

David Flatman has been rating Rob Webber recently, well he is a former Bath player, does he deserve a recall instead of McGuigan for the Baabaas game?

Is the selection less puzzling as it is a non-cap game?

McGuigan didn't stand a chance here whilst they were trying to fit the Thacker name in.
Opportunity missed with McGuigan and if you believe in any potential for player development off strong basics then it can't be denied that he was wasted here.
Strong basics needed at international level otherwise they'll be totally destroyed.
He will strengthen Falcons at club level along with Mulipola.
Did I really read Webber's name above, first Morgan and now Webber, shocking stuff!

I only said that Flatman recommended him a bit ago in a XV of the Week video, I wasn’t suggesting him!
