Bath next week ....

Post by Scott1 » Sun Dec 23, 2018 6:14 pm

Not going to attempt a 23 because of potential injuries but a win coupled with very likely losses for Wuss and Newcastle and we can really take the shackles off and not worry about the chasing pack for the near future. Thoughts? Your 23?

Definitely a winnable fixture imo, I’m thinking this

1 Genge
2 TPN
3 Cole
4 Williams
5 Wells
6 O’Connor (Against Bath WE WILL NEED TWO BREAKDOWN OPERATORS)
7 Thompson
8 Kalamafoni
9 Youngs
10 Ford
11 May
12 Toomua
13 Tuilagi
14 Holmes
15 Worth
16 Kerr
17 Fe’ao
18 Heyes
19 Fitzgerald
20 Denton
21 White
22 Owen
23 Olowefela

Agreed. Fitzgerald to 6, O'Connor to 7 and Thompson to bench to come on for O'Connor early 2nd half. Or do it the other way round. Thompson to start, O'Connor off the bench. If Denton is fit ease him back in by putting him on the bench in place of Lewis. Fitz can cover lock if needed.
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!

Wow you've changed your tune. A win against Bath would give us at least 9 points from 2 games, just 4 (or 3) short of my prediction of 13, which you said we had no chance of getting. :smt023

He's unrecognisable to the Fitzgerald of last season. The Murphy mantra of funding holes rather than running into brick walls suits him down to the ground.

I'd drop Williams from the squad and have Fitzgerald take his place on the bench with Thompson and BOC at 6 and 7. Evans onto the bench as well.

I know Spencer was injured and he shifted but it's certainly helped him,and us,with him in his best position at 6 and Williams at lock. MoC decision to persevere with those roles reversed astonished me!

You love Gloucester don't you?!

I know it isn't over yet, which is why you shouldn't keep inferring that we won't finish above Gloucester. We are only 9 points behind them.
