When will this selection madness stop.
Hopefully when we're back to only having one half-decent (if that) option for each position and there will be no more selection headaches for Borthwick, c.2018/19 season.

I know I for one will be much happier then!
What connection is there between selection headaches and playing Steward at 14 when there are 3 proper wings on the bench?

None, its a just plain daft, we have quite a few good props as well, shall we play them in the 2nd row?
To win is not as important as playing with style!

Harry Wells is the co-commentator on the stream this evening.

Personally I have no issues with Steward playing some of the game on the wing. Possibly trying some new tactics with the 50-22 where you almost play with 2 fullbacks. Or even just practice of versatility, which can be vital if players get injured, with a distict possibility for example of a 6-2 split on the bench then an injury to a wing for example could put either Burns or Steward on the wing. With so many subs especially 3 wingers I expect that Hegarty may make way early on and Steward slot in at fullback for a while.
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

Still OK then for players to overrun and/or take men out to facilitate a hole to score through? Looks like Chiefs for the title unless refs do as Owens averred last week.

Scrappy and the amount of knock-ons points to a large degree of rustiness. Let's hope this game is the WD40

I also wish Martin would stop asking questions and feeding the answer : eg That was great, wasn't it? Good lineout there don't you think? etc
We moan about the pro commentators on BT etc but there is a huge gulf. Fair play to him for trying though.

If this was a proper match, I'd put money on Tigers rolling them over in the second half.
