Irish animal rights protesters broke into a turkey farm near Brentford tonight, they escaped with over 5000 turkeys.
A spokesman for the Irish gang said " We will be releasing all the birds back to the wild just as soon as they have been defrosted!"

Agree that Irish aren’t far off full strength and their front row and backs look strong.
I’ve no issue with Ryan Bower as a replacement but doubt his ability as a starter!
Irish are missing Naholo, Coleman, Hepetema and Ioane all of whom would be likely starters. We are missing a fair few too but I like the look of our teamsheet more than theirs. If we don't win this then it's going to be a very long season with a real scrap at the bottom again.

Have faith. A repeat of the performance last weekend and we'll be alright :smt023

Bower doesn’t have to do anything flashy, he just has to do his job and not give anything in the scrum.

That's what he did last week to be fair to him. Some times you don't have to reinvent the wheel just do your job. Charlie Clare has been doing that really well also. It's what you want from the back up players, particularly in the front row. Scrum, lineout and work hard in the tight. Just do that well.

Technically you could still be right. Irish could be 'missing' TJ Ioane, in the same way that I still hanker after Jenny (Surname reserved for reasons of discretion)

No, not that one!

Good to see Jordan Taufua and Nephi Leatigaga back and Brink in. And if we play the attacking rugby we did last week Matt Scott should be in his element. All in all positive on positive.
