Surprised to see no George Worth or Jonah Holmes. Have I missed the fact that they are injured?

Worth was injured just before the sale game and Holmes is also injured

Thanks RB. I thought GW was just a tweak in the warm up obviously more serious and I wasn't aware of JH.

Its a local derby so anything can happen but our back line in particular is a curious mix of world class and distinctly average/unproven.

There have been enough times that the weaker team on paper has won so i'm not saying we won't win but it's not what i'd call a balanced team but hopefully my fears are misplaced!

Win without an lbp for Saints and Tigers’ll move above them in the table. A win would also be a confidence boost before the home game against Exeter. Dare I think Tigers could win that one too?

Can't believe that Owen is in the Squad ahead of Hardwick , I would also have picked Simmons ahead of White . Lets hope that the big Fijian wing has a mishap before the game . Saints favourites I think .

The last time I saw him play I thought that he couldn't catch a cold if he played the entire 80 minutes in the snow and naked!
Saints look there for the taking and it's Leicester at Welford Road, I fancy a Leicester win!

I most certainly would have picked Hardwick over White.

This is a match that could go either way, but I fancy Tigers to win a tight game, just so long as we are putting 100% effort in. Anything less, and we shall be in trouble.

BFG - you obviously didn't see him against Sarries on Sunday . If they couldn't cope do you really think we will ?

I like our forwards. The backs make me nervous with the lack of experience in the back three. (May aside).

So you’d have picked a 10/12 over a scrum half :smt017
