Great experience for the young players. Win or lose, we will hopefully reap the rewards for playing them in the future.

I thought Varndell might have had a run out with Jonah rested.

You could do that next week, its nearer international time and we would know how we really stand with Europe.

Varndell, S Lewis and O Hills all lent to Nottingham. Good to see a lot of younger players given the experience, BUT... can't help feel that we could be in for another Euro spanking. Scarlets team, despite having a load of injuries, looks decent.

Aye. Hands tied by ERCC regulations though. Glad Geordie has backed Aspland-Robinson.

Now we are definitely out, hope we don't pick up any injuries in this dead rubber.

Not a dead rubber for the young lads being given a chance. Shine today and stake a claim for more chances and new contracts with long term places in the squad going forward.

Man alive the commentary is one-eyed.

Good battle in the scrum and our defence has looked solid so far, although we're making an awful lot of tackles

Kicking away a lot of possession; slow from the base of the scrum; very predictable - onwards and upwards!
