Sale vs Tigers

Post by JP14 » Sun Mar 03, 2019 4:03 pm

It’ll be interesting as to what will happen at Sale on Friday, I’d go for 1 point, although we did perform very well there last season with injuries, absentees etc I can’t see it happening. This time though Sale won’t have Strauss or Tom Curry, so only one Curry to deal with on Friday (and that’s just my dinner - I’ll get my coat :smt003).

1 Gigena
2 Youngs
3 Cole (could be called up for Italy?)
4 Spencer
5 Kitchener
6 Williams
7 Thompson
8 Kalamafoni
9 Simmons
10 Ford
11 Olowofela
12 Eastmond
13 Sarto
14 Holmes
15 Worth
16 Kerr
17 Ma’afu
18 Heyes
19 Wells
20 Tuilagi
21 Evans
22 Law
23 SAR

Gigena looked injured when he came off not sure how long Bateman is out for.

Would like to see Worth at 13 with a back 3 of SAR and Sato on the wings with Holmes at 15

Pretty sure Gigena’s injury was just a tight hamstring.

Listening to Mat Tait on the latest podcast, Greg Bateman should be going down with a bad cold right about now!

I'd have Sam Aspland-Robinson ahead of Olowofela

and leave Worth at 15, let him make the position his own.

What's the point of shifting Worth when he 's just starting to settle down ? . Tuilagi on the bench when Fitzgerald is fit ?

Don't like the 5 - 2 split on the bench - would not have Tuilagi on the bench at all - look at what happened yesterday with the 5 - 2 split. Choice between Fitz, Wells and Evans as to who misses out and would have Hardwick on the bench if fit as well as Harrison again if fit
Hehehehehehehehe

Fitz cane off the bench and got stripped in contact near halfway then knocked under in a routine tackle near the 22. Kept the pressure on us needlessly. Unsure of his other stats and how the two players are doing in training but no senior player should be guaranteed a place.

Personally I'd like to see a backrow of Thompson, Evans, Kalamafoni. Sale like to compete hard at the breakdown so we should be ready to do battle there.

With a bit of luck Hardwick and Owolofela will be fit to come on to the bench. Move SAR into 13 and Sarto onto the wing. Keep Worth at 15 and Holmes on the other wing.

I was simply making a prediction based on the poor performance of Fitzgerald off the bench and the people I saw training yesterday before the match.

It was a 6-2 split. I think that it may be the last 23 standing who will be at Sale!

I know some posters have a soft spot for him but Freddie Tuilagi should not be anywhere near the premiership match day squad.

Any further news on Denton
