Based on the news that Veaniu and Taufau are probably going to be unavaliable, but Jonny May will be fit I amend my line up:

15. George Worth
14. Jonah Holmes
13. Manu Tuilagi
12. Noel Reid
11. Jonny May
10. George Ford
9. Ben Youngs
1. Ellis Genge
2. Jake Kerr
3. Nephi Leitigaga
4. Calum Green
5. Tomas Lavanini
6. Guy Thompson
7. Tommy Reffell
8. Sione Kalamafoni

16. Tom Youngs
17. Facundo Gigena
18. Dan Cole
19. Will Spencer
20. Jack Coughlan
21. Ben White
22. Tom Hardwick
23. Jaco Taute
Good side the only change I would make is that Lady Gaga will be more of an impact off the bench than Cole, who unless injured will always start anyway

Matthew Carley is ref. His name doesn't mean anything to me, although I see he is relatively experienced and has taken charge of Tigers match before. I'm hoping that is a good sign as bad referees seem to last longer in the memory than good ones.

No real issues with Carley.
Does anyone know what’s happening with Sir Wayne. All the other English rwc officials are back, but last time I saw him was on YouTube at a Springboks junket

Well the ref could of been worse (CMK or father Ted's house keeper)

Isn't Carley rather home team biased..

It should be Sir Wayne, although I would enjoy Nigel having charge of one of these games.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

Hmm - I still remember Sir Wayne doing a match us v Saints several seasons ago - at Welford Rd. Absolute shambles of a match and I felt sorry for both sides. It might even have been the one where Flood chickened out of a last minute drop-goal to draw level, so Geordie stepped up and blobbed it over.

I know Barnes has improved massively since those days.

I recall Barnes being a bit below par last season, especially that Naiyaravoro knock-on that Saints scored soon after from.

As long as you are humble no matter the result Scott I firmly respect your opinion.

That was Sarries away.

I remember it vividly. Our rumoured soon to be Head Coach got yellow carded it that match too!

Ah, my apologies. Was Barnes ref for that match or have I mis-remembered that too?

I thought I could remember Murphy dropping a very ugly drop goal here at Welford Road :smt017
