I would start Manu and Eastmond personally.
Olowofela looks very good especially in attack BUT still has a bit to learn in defence.

Also think Tait might be injured.

I'd let Bateman concentrate on playing loosehead because that's where he's going to be for the next few months until Genge is fit. Cole and Cortes are both specialist tightheads and Fe'ao is supposed to play both sides.

Is he, we might have to start Eastmond, only being precautious.

Also I think F Tuilagi is injured, is he?

So many injuries!

Any chance of a stream for this game? It was interesting seeing Connor O'Shea jabbering away in Italian even if we did get pumped in Treviso.

Looking at the training pictures it seems that Kalamafoni, Spencer and Eastmond are all fit for the weekend.

You'll know on Friday. Mind you, it may well be that Tigers will save some firepower for Falcons.
