Away vs Quins Sat 13th Feb

Post by TigerFeetSteve » Sun Feb 07, 2021 12:34 pm

Next week away vs Quins is going to be a great challenge. Back to back wins for this team will be huge!

Got to see how Nadolo's hamstring goes, but Murimurivalu did well when he came on.

I'd go with a similar team, maybe start Wells over Green, if Nadolo is out, I'd play Murimurivalu and bring Porter onto the bench with his versatility.
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

I’d keep the same team too,injuries permitting. They deserve it!

Agree but play a proper 7 - and keep the props on a bit longer!!

Now the Tigers match was worth watching rather than the dire England tripe!
This to me is a must win game and I hope Henry can maintain yesterdays skills v Smith. I feel Nadolo should be rested to fully recover and Murimurivalu on the wing with or Potter / Porter on the bench. Wigglesworth v Care will be good but discipline will be the deciding factor there as they do have a lot of wind-up merchants. Go Tigers :smt023

We can watch Cole make a mess of Marler again.
There is an argument for picking Wallace with a point to prove maybe?
A proper 7 @ 7, Reffell v Evans will be good to see.
I wouldn't pick Wigglesworth but that's ever let alone Sat...he has a knack of creating slow ball for us, let alone the other issues.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

I wouldn't make too many changes, apart from starting either Reffell or Wallace to counter the threat of Evans at the breakdown.

Not sure Nadolo will be fit for this one so I’d go for:

15 Freddie Steward
14 Kobus Van Wyk
13 Matías Moroni
12 Matt Scott
11 Kini Murimurivalu
10 Zack Henry
9 Richard Wigglesworth
1 Luan de Bruin
2 Julián Montoya
3 Dan Cole
4 Tomás Lavanini
5 Harry Wells
6 Hanro Liebenberg
7 Tommy Reffell
8 Jasper Wiese

Replacements

16 Tom Youngs
17 Nephi Leatigaga
18 Joe Heyes
19 Calum Green
20 Cyle Brink
21 Jack Van Poortvliet
22 Johnny McPhillips
23 Guy Porter

Porter is a useful option on the bench as can cover multiple positions. Would like to see Reffell start at 7 with Brink impact off the bench. Would start Wells as he’s a bit more of a nuisance type player who will be able to get at Quins. Otherwise largely the same as against Worcester.

Will be a tough game for sure but I’m feeling confident about this one. Tigers by 5 :smt023

i’m really liking the fact that steve seems to be not wanting to change the team much and i love it! if we can build stability then once the england boys are back we should be in a very good position. :smt023

Not expecting much from this game. A cohesive team effort and maybe a LBP is a reasonable expectation.

.... Maybe if Smith and Dombrandt could be called up for England to replace Farrell and Billy I'd be happy.

This will be a real indication as to where we are. We haven't won an away game in the league for a very long time and psychologically it would be huge if we could get a win here.

The last time we didn’t lose an away game in the league was in December 2019....... against Quins. We drew 30-30

Not sure what Brink has done to be dropped, thought he ran hard and was really physical vs Worcester. This obsession with having a “genuine” 7 is bizarre if I’m honest. You’ll get turned over if you don’t look after the ball properly, by anyone. The way our defence has been improving, getting off the line and pressurising the opposition has been decent to force errors. I’m sticking with Brink.

Quins haven't been good at home of late, the game will be a real indicator as to whether their current form is a dead cat bounce or not in my opinion.

Just my personal opinion. I like having a natural 7 at 7. I think both Reffell and Wallace have been great for us and I think it makes for a more balanced back row. I agree that Brink has played well and deserves the spot too though.

It's great having a choice of high calibre options rather than having to shoehorn players in out of position. Strength in depth and if I see Reffell, Wallace or Brink starting at 7 at the weekend, tbh I will be more than happy with that.
