Really poor backrow selection.
But all our 2nd rows are selected in the 23.
We should be able to win this game...but I am struggling to see how we will.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

What was the point in getting Clayton Blommetjies if we are not even going to include him in the match day squad? Don't the powers to be realise we are fighting for our premiership lives here?

I fear a BP win for Falcons. Jersey here we come.

Yes a 5-0 loss would be the final nail imo.

Two home wins would see us stay up. A 4-1 loss would definitely not be the end of the world, and is what I expect. I think we will get 10 points more in total, which, unless both Falcons and Wuss go on staggering winning streaks, will see us safe.

Nottingham 1995-2000
Swansea (Whites) 1988-95

Definitely lose this one. How Wells doesn’t start I don’t know. Same with BOC. I appreciate Matt Smith has been out a long time but I’d still pick him over Owen any day of the week. Toomua is not a full back. Senseless selection. Probably means we will win now 😂😂

I'm starting to come to that conclusion now with some of his team selections!

You can't say that its heresy and bordering on high treason :smt002 .
Without hope we are nothing, keep the faith, a Tiger for eternity
