Is Kitch fit?

Louw and Underhill can destroy teams at the breakdown so I'd start two opensides. Possibly:

1.Genge
2.TPN
3.Cole
4.Williams
5.Wells
6.Fitzgerald
7.Evans
8.BOC

9.Youngs
10.Ford

11.May
12.Toomua
13.Tuilagi
14.Holmes
15.Worth

16.Kerr
17.Ma'afu/Feao
18.Heyes
19.Kitchener
20.Kalamafoni
21.White
22.Owen
23.Olowofela

I’d go along the same lines, but with Kalamafoni at 8 and BOC at 6.

But that would leave Fitz on the bench as the BR option (harsh after a couple of decent performances) and Williams in at lock, which hasn’t seemed to be his position of late - even though I’d rather have him there than at 6.

Please no more humiliating defeats at Barff Hq.
Bout time we dished one out to them. So a TBP W for me would bring .....a) bragging rights - b) momentum - c)an end to a period of self doubt - d)round the year off very nicely


Come on you TTIIIIIIGERS :smt055 :smt055

I will say this though,and you can quote me,if one of us gets that TBP win we are one million % safe! Then the pressure has gone and we can target that 4th spot.

No reason why we cant win, that's a good team and I don't see anything special in the Bath side.

Their back row is a formidable unit. Especially if we get isolated at the breakdown and sir doesn't penalise lack of a release and hands past the ball on the floor.
A narrow inside defence "brick wall" was highlighted by the pundits at the Bath game last week. Get outside that and in behind and I could be on the Remy. Run into that wall and we'll get turned over.

Now I thought the same when I saw Zach Mercer, Rhys Priestland and Cooper Vuna on the bench 😁

I’m hoping Manu get’s round the corner and really put pressure on that back 3

Yes we have to get to the edge of their defence as quick as possible,another tactic should be to sit Ford deep at times and put a few balls on top of the 7s guys head and pressure him with a good chase. BY should be putting his kicks to him whenever possible too.

Putting the ball in behind Wilson with May chasing should be a tactic, he's 35 and whilst a good footballer is only in the side due to so many injuries. He's not got much pace and will turn to the boot rather than trying to play out.

We should be able to generate plenty of pressure at the scrum but I doubt our lineout or mauling game is going to see much joy even with Kerr throwing in.
