Any reports yet? With the snippets I've got it looks like a one sided loss bar catching them cold early,not good!

Game is up.

Not bothering to watch it tonight, but some might want to give it a gander.

The video is a bit naff, there's 15-20 mins where the stream must have gone down

Also to put a bit of perspective a similar strength Exeter team just lost to Cornish Pirates 29-21, Leinster also lost to Newcastle 42-17 at home, not sure either of those sides will be panicking yet

Keeping them scoreless down to 14 with some good defending stands out

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
May I suggest when you do your prediction for the Irish game you leave O'Connor out of the team? I probably wouldn't replace him with Guy Thompson either. :smt023

evans was pretty obvious given he was in a wheelchair and crutches over the summer, some seemed to think he would be ok for pre-season though.

It looked as though Voss and Williams had good games, rewatching the match now.

I know it’s preseason and all but to be caught out by tap and goes two weeks in a row is simply not good enough.

Edit: Despite the yellow card which I thought was a bit extreme, Reffell had a really good game, Fitz looked assured in the carry, not sure about his leadership qualities and Denton put in a good debut shift.

All I'm saying is think about why Reffell started at 7 and not one of the above ones mentioned.

Bigger injury list than known publicly. Thompson out for a while apparently, very concerned about 12, 13 too. Olowofela may be pitched in early.

Yep! So when it comes to team predictions, it's probably not worth bothering! :smt009
