I think it would be sensible to field the majority of our internationals to reintegrate before the La Rochelle game. I'd be more tempted to rest them in rotation for the Glasgow, Edinburgh and Drags games. Especially as Edinburgh and Drags games could be dead rubbers as we could well sit in no mans land between 1st and 3rd.

May be rest Steff, Parkes and Cawdor who've played a lot of rugby, none of the rest of them have really been hammered by Wales though.

The season is a balancing act from here on out, I really can't see us topping the pool at this point without Leinster slipping up so it's a difficult call, do they rest all internationals ahead of LR game or integrate them back risking injury at the possibility of a win? 

The other plus point of integrating is that the side will have played together once ahead of LR and hopefully aired out any rust, but it won't do much for the confidence if they still go on to lose in Munster.

It needs to be remembered that most of our first choice players have been training and playing together with Wales all these past few weeks and although not all have played all the time I don't think they will be rusty. I know match condition is different of course.

we play different way to wales and we will need the players to at least start the game I think to get us back into our plays. let the players get back into our coaching system.

I'd consider starting Aled ahead of Cawdor, just based on game time.

I think we need to pick our Rochelle starting 15 against munster to wash wales out of their system.

After the AI's we nearly lost at home to Benetton. By the following week we'd sorted things out and won comfortably. So I'd play ours bets 23 and rotate during the game.

Going by what pivac has said previously about players taking time to get gatland out of their system. Id guess 3/4 will start v munster maybe 3/4 more on the bench and the rest will come in v la rochelle

 Aside of Barclay would have all the others in our 23 if fit, they also have Farrell,Kleyne and Clote  out .

Got to be heading out there looking for the win, even if that means selecting a strong starting fifteen.

12 points behind Glasgow, Munster probably feel that first spot is out of their grasp. They are 6 points ahead of Cheetahs, but with a game in hand. However that game is away to Edinburgh this Friday. If they lose that one they may change their minds about resting internationals against us.

They don’t have to worry about the Cheetahs as they are not playing a full role in the playoffs and european cup qualification. I’m sure that whoever finishes 4th behind the Cheetahs goes on to qualify for the playoffs - although I may be wrong and they just get replaced when it comes to european places.
