Correct. Luckily we have Toomua back. Hopefully he will play as well as he did in the away fixture v Racing.

I'd be tempted to mix it up with Manu inside and Toomua outside on the odd occasion.
Give Russell some tackling practice as the Racing forwards didn't always seem that eager to get out and cover the 10, if they are in place then Toomua will pull them wider still and really test their desire to spread quickly and will have Manu inside and whoever can get outside him to play with.

I'd rather Harrison on the wing than JF in the back 3!!!

I would assume Holmes will be back for the weekend. J Ford at full back is a terrible shout. White deserves to start again

There are frost sheets out at Welford Road and Oval Park for tomorrow & Saturday training sessions.

Can't believe they don't use straw anymore.

Shame - the name "sheetclearer" (with stress on the "sheeeeet" syllable, in case anyone gets the pronunciation wrong ) won't seem right, will it :smt002

What's Apsland-Robinson been up to since he joined in the summer? There was a fair bit of fan fair at his signing but I've not seen much of him since.

Gareth Owen can play fullback can’t he?

Injured as far as I'm aware.

I think that was several years back before he picked up the knee injury that robbed him of his top end pace. Might be able to do a job if we're short.

Hopefully Worth will have recovered sufficiently, he's not the quickest either but he's good under the high ball.
