As others have said it’s a decent run. 4 wins out of 6 during that period would put us around 70 points and just about qualified for the play offs

Yes I'm not sure I want to see
10. Burns
15. Hegarty
Hegarty seems to have to move to 10 and save us

Although nothing suggests that Borthwick will not keep the duel playmaking options of Burns and Hegarty together

I like Burns and Hegarty together. They can switch as required, like they did against Connacht.

But it's been more the case that Hegarty has seemed to bail us out. I'd like to see him start at FH ,his game management is better.

If Steward was available, I might agree.

Agree, but from an England perspective I'm happy
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

I would hope Hegarty is given the kicking duties, take a bit of pressure off Burns

In the battle of club v country, brought on by the fact that we play international and club games on the same date, causing conflict, I am biased towards club.

I’m the same: Tigers first as I’ve never liked losing so many players to England: especially under Eddie Jones as he breasted Cole and others) by rarely taking him off in games, has caused injury to other players by making them do strange activities in training, he also chooses players he probably has no intention of using so denying the clubs the chance to play them!
I also feel for the English qualified players who aspire to play for England yet know it’s their club that looks after them!
I’m off to Sale to support the lads who play but know we are now going to struggle without a third of our team!

Big Dai,
You're not alone in the Club before International debate.
I'm a club shareholder (like thousands). Can't recall anyone asking me if minded losing 'my' fly-half mid-season.

Not really selfish; it is perfectly reasonable to take a position based on where your passion lies and like you, mine is with Tigers. Put it this way, on 5 Feb at 1645hrs, whilst on my son's stag weekend, I will be far more interested in the end of the Tigers v Worcester match than the start of the Scotland v England match.
