TV definitely. Kalamafoni meh.

Rome wasn't built in a day. It will take a while for the pack to come together and gain the required cohesion. I'd be tempted to go for a 5/2 split on the bench though, use Kalamafoni instead of the additional back. We have some utility backs that cover multiple positions.

The injury to Taute is worrying. Fact is he was out for a very long time with an ACL, and it's a knee injury that's keeping him out for us. Hope he makes a full recovery and soon.

So, I admire your thinking JP, however I don't see the Golden Child (White) being dropped. I'd like to, as IMO, he's not good enough.

Would have liked to rest Kalamafoni and Veainu, but given we lost at the weekend don’t think we have that luxury. Murphy also needs to trust the bench and bring them this time round. I’d go with:

Bateman Youngs Heyes
Spencer Green
Liebenberg Kalamafoni Thompson
White Reid
Eastmond Viljoen
Olowofela Veainu Holmes

Kerr Gigena Leatigaga Wells Reffell Harrison Hardwick Taute

Am always a little bemused over White, never better than Simmons and a street behind Shazam IMO. Just never seen anything much to get me purring.
Eastmond was ill on Saturday.

For me across the team we need to raise our game another 50% at least, from the Worcs game.
TV would be a welcome inclusion as he can read a game.

Kicking needs to be 100% better as getting over the gain line is going to be our undoing on last game proved.
Turn them and play in their half please.

Anyone know if the King Power will be open for parking? I'm making the assumption that it won't with the memorial garden opening on Sunday as well but just wondered if anyone had any confirmation?
