The club expect the game to go ahead as planned.
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Is Liam even our player yet?

I’m sure I remember AOB playing fullback for the Dragons at some point.

I'm quite shocked at the inclusion of O'Brien while Prydie has been deemed fit, I'm sure he played there quite a bit for the dragons.

   Whether they feel he is not fit enough ,I do not know .

Certainly seems to be a forward pack built for lineout, which was shown by Scotland last weekend to be absolutely crucial in appalling weather. Lousi, Rawlins and Shingler should be able to keep Edinburgh guessing while also in Shingler giving us an option just to throw and claim it at the front. My main worry is our replacement hooker, and whether he’ll be able to hold it together when / if he comes on. 
Moving on to our backline I see it very much as a safety first, kicking game backline. Fonotia should give us front foot ball, while AOB, Dinky and Steff Hughes should be able to pin us in the corner.
Even so I still am worried for this game, as Edinburgh will love a tight arm wrestle and I can see them using all their experience to edge us out. Whatever happens, it’s sure to be a tight game and I hope all the fans who are able and brave enough to make the game can cheer the boys on as they all do.

Vitally important to make good use of the wind and play for territory so that we can pressure Edinburgh and capitalise on the inevitable mistakes that will happen in the expected conditions.

The wind will be swirling all over the place.  Best team without the ball will win.

Our young full back will be in for a an abundance of up and unders no doubt. Plenty of dropped ball and knock ons across the park leading to lots of scrums ! How good is or scrum compared to theirs ? 🤔

  Forecasters now saying Storm Dennis going to be the most powerful North Atlantic storm ever, no player or supporter should risk there life to go to see a rugby game. Lets hope common sense prevails and game is postponed .
