Forwards need to dominate from the get go. Their halfback experience vastly outweighs ours we cant let them dictate the game.

I’m a bit surprised to see Rawlins on the bench covering backrow. I would’ve preferred to see Jac Morgan or Dan Davis on there so we have 7 cover, with Macleod being able to fill in at 6 or 8.

Dan Davis is listed as injured. Lewis Rawlins will bring great energy to the back row. Good player.

Missing Naholo, Jackson, Cowan for example compared to a recent league match but it does seem a strong side considering there is nothing on it for them. I would say that an almost identical team (if not stronger) got dismantled by Bath last month at the Madejski

Sorry but unable to get excited or enthused by the backs selection.Whether we win this game or not,I no longer have any faith in Mooar.Just like last year,I can't wait for the new coach to start.

That's a pretty strong team - don't know the LI squad well enough to judge how near that is to a top 23... the boys should know if there is any chance of qualification by KO - if there is, all guns blazing!

High tempo game with lots of tries I reckon. It's usually the case when we play them at the Madejski......looking forward to it :-)

In 40 years I don't remember a  less effective centre pairing.I think that deserves criticism.If I'm wrong,I challenge anybody to prove it.Don't dismiss my criticism and my very real disappointment as "trolling".....prove me wrong and name a worse performing pair of centres to have played for the club in the last 40 years(or more).

How many games are you based that centre partnership on? can't be too many they have started together.

I personally agree its not particularly exciting. But I don't understand the instant writing off of Brad Moar, seems more than a little pessimistic.
