Wish I could be there on the terrace, so if you're going, cheer 'em on for me!

Just an afterthought - do you think Peter Tom could nip down to Toulouse and pick me up? If he's going to the game, of course!

Just put a tenner on Tigers to be relegated at 8/1. Got a good price for Red Rum in the National too! The bookie was a smashing bloke :smt003

No Wells to add to Ben Youngs,Dento, Thomo, Smith, TV, Bateman: and the finishing power of Jonah Holmes is a serious blow.
Lots of my friends who are City supporters cannot understand how we never seem to have a fit team out! I must admit, having watched most games that are on TV( except Tigers because we are there), it is frustrating to see other teams with almost full strength squads: even if they have seemed to pick up long term injuries those players recover.

Chiefs by turning up. Still I'll try and enjoy the day,Sarries have fielded a strong team,let's just hope they can restrict Newcastle to zero points so they don't gain anything on us.

Perhaps we don't stuff them full of painkillers, and pay attention to protocols.

With Chiefs playing such a multi phase game perhaps the idea is to bring on some pace a bit later when they tire 😂😂

With our team selection, from the fit players available, we can do no more, so lets hope those with big names have big games, we might just get something out of this. :smt038 I like Toomua at FB, he has to be in the side. As to Guy Thompson, it just has to be rotation I assume, although Brendon rarely lasts a full game so we could see Guy soon, so its is the best way to start! Come on Tigers give us something to cheer us up and take away this dreadful fear we have as to what the unmentionable could bring. :smt001

Toomua at 15 was hinted at by GM a few weeks ago in an interview, so it’ll be interesting to see how he goes.

I think Thompson is unlucky, but I can see why he’s gone with the bulk of Williams and Fitz. O’Connor at 8 is tried and tested too.
