Harrison will be back on the bench probably, Wells performed better than Kitchener when he came on despite the latter running the lineout quite well. Stevens injury is disappointing as Youngs is nowhere good enough at the moment.

1 Bateman
2 Youngs
3 Cole
4 Williams
5 Wells
6 Denton
7 Thompson
8 Kalamafoni
9 YBY/White
10 Ford
11 May
12 Hardwick
13 Owen (Even if it’s just a niggle I’d still rest Tuilagi)
14 Thompstone
15 Vieanu
16 McMillan
17 Fe’ao
18 Heyes (Cortes will either be called up by Los Pumas who will be out with muscle cramp suffered yesterday anyway)
19 Lewis
20 Mapapalangi
21 Harrison
22 Eastmond
23 Olowofela

Tigers can't lose this one as Sale look even worse.
Everything will be alright again, Mavis9 can go on the Tigers To Be Crowned Premiership Champions topic and tell everyone that she told them so, a Young'un will tell us it's all back on track and Diamond will blame the ref, all back to normal!
I tried that belittling tactic for the Worcester game but it kinda backfired :smt018 :smt009 :smt003 :smt002
It will be fine, Jonny May will play at prop, scrum half and wing!

I'd be amazed if Eastmond doesn't start.

I don't know what to think any more either, we get battered even with our full strength squad so what's the point pondering over who plays lock or blindside.

...who knows what’ll happen with Sale. I think we all thought the last game would be a win. I hope we do NOT add significantly to the 158 points already conceded. Just can’t believe that number after 4 games: hope it’s pinned up somewhere prominent at Welford Road...

Until someone puts some structure into the shambles of what is supposed to be a defence, then the 'A" column will continue to increase rapidly. With players like Ross etc, Sale will be chopping at the bit and probably take the 5 points.

Keep going like this and come February the Tigers will be fighting to avoid the relegation place, Europe goodbye by Christmas and top six finish just a dream!! IMO, clear the decks and get a fresh set of coaches in that really do know how to run a Prem side. The 'nepotic' attitude of the club has failed the supporters and players alike for too many seasons to the point of embarrassment.

We need a defence coach. We need some luck with injuries. And the BoD need to accept they've caused the whole scenario by failing with the provision of top coaching staff from when MOC left the first time.

We also need the players to buy in to whatever that defence coach requires.
Without that buy in from players a coach is left with two choices, get new players or get a new job!
I get the impression certain players here are only prepared to buy in to whatever their Dad might tell them!

Tempting fate again but maybe things aren't all that rosey at the Sharks

Of course the article is very one sided and Diamond isn't everyone's cup of tea.

On another note is rumoured Dorian West is going to be given a job there.
