I hear Gloucester have a few suspensions and injuries. Good time to play them.

Williams looked good when he came on, back row of Williams Evans O’Connor could work

There were 14 scrums in the match against Bath, but 406 breakdowns. Only Kalamafoni among the starting forwards made significant progress ball in hand. Tigers attempted 165 tackles but missed 31. Tigers need a back row that can tackle and compete at the breakdown and make progress ball in hand.

Evans made more metres than Cole, Genge, Kerr, Fitzgerald, O'Connor, Williams combined. I reckon he deserves a start.

I'd start Eastmond next to Manu and have Toomua on the bench
