8. Taufua

1. Gigena

16. Genge
17. Mamukashvili
18. Leitigaga
19. Green

I agree with the rest of your team from 1-10.
But then:
11. Murimurivalu
12. Scott
13. Nadolo
14. Williams
15. Steward

Ellis is unlikely to be available.

Explain? Paternity leave, too many minutes on the pitch, p'eed off at last nights performance or injury? :smt017

Last update on Brink (I think in an LTTV bit) was that he's still rehabbing and wont play until the start of the 2020/21 season.

Not sure Mamu will be deemed ready, I hope he is and would love to see Muri feature in some capacity

I think whatever team SB selects will likely be the one, injuries permitting that he wants to face Castres a week later

Might be too soon for Murimurivalu potentially.
One thing that I do get from the Current Tigers team is that they do not plan to play anyone who isn't 100% in the rest of this seasons games.

So will depend how he gets on with Walters S&C.

Also honestly think Henderson has earned a right to the First XV squad IMO. Maybe too soon with playing a whole 80 v Wasps.

But 0 missed tackles 11 made (Most in the squad)
Scored a nice try.
One of the few players who looked to offload in his carrying.
Stole a line out.

Agree with that, he's one who has enhanced his reputation over the last few weeks and should be around the first XV next season.

Maybe Henderson will be our best Scottish player since Big Jim! :smt003

In all seriousness though he was good and I felt was unfairly penalised in the maul for doing something that Jack Willis had done exactly the same later in the game and was let off with (in my head that makes sense).

A class signing though by McGinty.

Interesting one really this game, both teams have only won one game in the resumption and who’s 2nd choice teams have just been on the ends of 45+ points thrashings by a Top Four team. Shame there isn’t a crowd.

I am quite chilled about results to date - SB rebuilding, testing his squad, development above results, preserve the squad, losing is not the end of the world but a place to learn etc etc etc

HOWEVER, the opposite applies for all Saints games. This one is all about the win.....
