Intresting, should give the fringe players one last chance to impress. Can't see us putting out many (any) 1st team players.
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

They're optimistic thinking they can find 1,000 fans!

↑ seems a sensible selection. I would imagine Sarries are using this to give game time to their non-internationals so it could be a useful test of some of our youngsters and fringe players.

If that's the team I'd like to see Wallace captain

Just when you think things couldn't get any worse......

Why not play Nottingham?

Why help the cheats out?

& on the carpet, great for the players...
To win is not as important as playing with style!

Nottingham are semi pro and will be probably requiring a few borrows from us to remain competitive.

The cheats might well be offering a little fee to help cover costs and get the game on. Nottingham won't be able to afford that. It's also a great chance against tough opposition for our fringe players to show that they can do.

Looks pretty sensible to me. I’d go with Williams at 14 and Worth at 15 perhaps. If he’s not injured I’d like to see Lewis on the bench as I think he still has a lot to offer

Lewis should be starting. Most overlooked player in the squad. He might not be the size that everyone keeps banging on about but he has speed - see clips below. He needs a good run out so Borthwick can actually see what he's capable of instead of keeping him on the training field. I know we need to win and go up the table but the starting 15 from the last few weeks are going to start getting some knocks soon, the others waiting in the wings need to get some game time to take over from them.

I really like Lewis, think he shows real potential.. like a young Tom Croft. Including him against Sarries is a no brainer as it’s a ‘friendly’ so would be great to see him start. We are spoiled for choice with Liebenberg Taufua Wiese Brink Reffell and Wallace but I think Lewis shouldn’t be forgotten for sure. One for the future
