Gloucester vs Tigers

Post by JP14 » Sun Nov 11, 2018 2:43 pm

A backrow of Kriel, Ackermann and a second row of Slater and Grobler, we could be in trouble but elements of inconsistency still plague the Cherry and Whites. I think something along the lines of this will be chosen.

1 Bateman
2 Youngs
3 Cole
4 Spencer
5 Wells
6 Thompson
7 Evans
8 Kalamafoni
9 Harrison
10 Hardwick
11 Olowofela
12 Eastmond
13 Owen
14 Thompstone
15 Worth
16 Kerr
17 Fe’ao
18 Heyes
19 Fitzgerald
20 Reffell
21 White
22 Ford
23 Forsyth

6. Williams
7. Thompson
8. Kalamafoni

Would also have cortes on the bench for Heyes.

On paper, that looks a reasonable side.

I see why you would Cortes on the bench but I’m not sure about Williams’ fitness or was his halftime substitution tactical? Plus I like to have two breakdown operators.

Williams appeared to be coming off with a knock / injury at Half-Time, looked like left shoulder (could be wrong) and in a bit of discomfort.

Hopefully just a precaution.

Apologies for not keeping up RB but is Kalamafoni back with us from the AI's? What about BOC's fitness? If he has recovered from injury maybe a bench slot for him though that's tough on Evans and Reffell.

Whilst we are talking injuries anybody know the position with Telusa?

Finally what about Holmes in place of Olowofela who has looked a little off the pace in recent matches?

Last I heard (Tuesday or Wednesday just gone) he was still going through the return to play protocols following a head knock. Can't remember where I read or heard it though. Senility catching up with me.

I would really like to know an injury update on Telusa, BOC, Denton, Genge and Tait.

Also Holmes must play if he's released by Wales.

Just looking at that possible side really does enforce my opinion that playing massively important league matches during the autumn international is a complete farce. This game could go a long way to deciding who finishes fourth this season. :smt013

If that is the case I hope we are looking at an injury cover signing
