Getting Taute integrated at 12 and 13 will be huge for the season. The midfield has missed his quality enormously with Ford and Manu away. I hope we see Reid playing 12 over the next 2 weeks as well.

Lenny has usually played his best club rugby when his England place is questioned so going into a new World Cup cycle I wouldn't be surprised if he plays the best he has for Tigers in years.

There's not a lot of back three cover in the squad so Aspland-Robinson getting on the pitch is great as well.

I very much doubt Taute will play at Cardiff.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

I can't quite figure out how Genge can be on holiday when he's the one of our England contingent who has played the least rugby with the England squad. The others have been back for a while although not played last week.

It opens the speculation as to whether he is injured or he's leaving?

He’s training with the squad now.

This, from what I understand, is Pau's side that shows a lot of changes from the side that won away at Bayonne last Saturday.

Fisihoi-Rey-Corato/ Pesenti-Delannoy/ Waqanoborutu-Erbani-Gunther// Daubagna-Taylor/ Votu-Dumoulin-Nicot-Pourrailly/Pinto

Reps : Barka-Moïse-Adriaansse-Metz-Habel kueffner-Le Bail-Hastoy-Nueno

Not many household names in this team. Fly half Tom Taylor apparently had 3 caps for NZ back in 2013.

As an aside, Pau are better known in France as Section Paloise. The word Palois means a native or relating to Pau. A multi-sports club was founded in the Béarn region of SW France in 1902 and the rugby section of the club was called Section Paloise.

If Tigers field a close to full strength side, and as the opposition doesn't appear to be so then Tigers should win (famous last words, so I'll keep my head down if it all goes titz up!!!)

When will the Tigers' team be announced? Maybe Geordan can't make his mind up?!

I hope we pick a full strength squad, tired of watching make-weights slog out 80 mins of uninspiring lateral motion.

He can't even manage Lavanini. His attempts at Mapapalangi were a joy, I thought we had 4 extra players once!
