If not in the squad or a late replacement on Saturday, he may be drafted on to the bench for the Irish game on Sunday
Problem is we have to announce the team Friday lunchtime. The whole point of international teams retaining 25 not 23 is to ensure they have cover in case say Tuilagi injuries himself in the warm up on the day.

IF we got special permission to announce a team after the game proving he's not needed then maybe, even so it throws team run prep etc out the window.
teams have changed after then have been announced before

It isn’t out of the question it depends on who else Tigers have available of course

You don't need to record.

If you just go onto Prime you can click on sports and under Autumn Nations series all matches are available there from all the weeks no recording needed.
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

Just want to put this out there from my POV. Regardless of those missing for SA there's is still an incredibly strong team so if we win its a very good one and if we lose we've lost to a very good one.

Think seeing Guy Porter in the tunnel with the England lads puts to bed if he's a travelling reserve or not

Malherbhe wasn’t pushing straight - he was boring in. Easy to smash a loose head that way - I used to do it all the time if I could
