Treviso Preseason Game

Post by kpj tiger » Tue Aug 14, 2018 1:40 pm

The game should be streamed here for those who aren't making the trip:

Also what sort of team are we expecting to see? Mike Williams seems likely to be involved but are we likely to put out our 1st XV like other teams have ?

I've changed my mind slightly from the initial team I said in another thread. I'm still going for a young but talented front row, followed by a very powerful back 5, good mixture of young and experienced players in the backline. Lot’s of seniors on the bench to get them back into the mixture of things.

1. Hills
2. Kerr
3. Heyes
4. Jordan
5. Spencer
6. Kalamafoni
7. O'Connor (c)
8. Tuilagi
9. Simmons
10. Hardwick
11. Holmes
12. Eastmond
13. Olowofela
14. Thompstone
15. Worth
16. T.Youngs
17. Bateman
18. Cortes
19. Williams
20. Mapapalangi
21. White
22. J.Ford
23. M.Tait

My feeling was......BOC? Evans, Mapapalangi, Kalamafoni, Thopson, Spencer.......?
Leicester Tigers 1995-
Nottingham 1995-2000
Swansea (Whites) 1988-95
A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.

Evans is just coming of the back of a major injury and is most likely still rehabbing.
Spencer prob don't feel like rushing him either.
Mapapalangi was playing for Tonga.

Yep. He's on trial apparently. Played in the Cardiff friendly and by all accounts didn't play too well. A last opportunity maybe?
I saw Marika Vunibaka play

I think we’ll struggle, I reckon old friend Pasquali will give Ma’afu a thrashing in the scrum, while I like the look of that back five I think the backrow will have its work cut out with the likes of Seb Negri and Tongan international Nasi Manu in the backrow. Backline looks good, but would have liked to have Olowofela starting and more senior players on the bench to get them back into the groove.

Doesn't sound good. Anybody watching who can give comment. Looks like the cork is staying in the Remy bottle.

Maybe since Tigers won all their preseason games last year and had a poor start the plan is to now lose in Preseason instead.....

800 IQ play by Tigers. :smt002 :smt003
