Over reaction me thinks. We will win don’t panic. Our second rows always step up on these occasions.

Asquith unlucky, hope Prydie performs. Speight is a handful remember so may he’s picked to mark him?

Great to see Hardie - reminds me of Gar D in younger days. Expecting a big game out of Cassiem too, he’s slowly getting better.

I would say "not at his best". His worse is better than a lot of centers out there on a good day. Dreadful.....That was a bit harsh imho

Best team available. Yes, it’s a shame that Asquith isn’t in the 23, but Parkes is someone the Pivac relies on heavily, and has great confidence in. I agree his form has been ropey this season but I wonder whether he has recovered fully from his very serious finger injury sustained in the first test against Argentina.
Fonotia deserves to keep his starting position based on his performances this season, and like I’ve said already on another thread, he can only improve by playing in a settled backline.
I’m also concerned about our lack of physical edge up front. Ball is our only real ball carrier in the pack and he’s unavailable. If we are going to win we need big games from Cubby, Bullbring and Cassiem, something I’m confident they have in them.

I hope Cubby can steal some ball, something we’ve been lacking all season. Crucial to the way we play best.

And no stupid mistakes, poor decisions or basic errors please (some things we haven’t been lacking recently).

For their mega pay cheques, you'd expect a bit more.

Half right - or half the story. Scarlets not at their best, but Ulster haven't been pulling up trees, either. At home, I fancy Scarlets to win... the rather lightweight scrum is the main point of concern.

Yes, that's fair - Hadleigh is one of several players yet to hit top form this season, but even then he's usually tidy... and he'll provide some leadership off the bench.

Difficult decision to drop Hildago-Clyne for Hardy (or is he injured) and I wonder what it will take for Asquith to get into the team. Saved our bacon several times last season, at crucial times.
Unfortunately we havent gelled well this season. But I hope we can get the win evenif it makes little difference to the european group. Would be a good platform for the rest of the season.

I hope we are going to play the conditions. It's supposed to be very windy with showers, so elaborate, multi-phase passing moves will not be easy and we've managed to make more than our usual quota of mistakes recently in much better conditions to those predicted for tomorrow.

There is no mega bucks in rugby. Raheem sterling earns more in a day than some rugby players get in a year. Compare that to the top earners in the club, he most probably earns more in 5 days than they do in a year.

Depends what you call 'Mega Bucks'

Quote online
"Halfpenny, Jonathan Davies thought to be earning around the £350-375,000 a year"

Pretty hefty in my opinion, but I agree with you, it's minuscule in comparison to football.

Think it’s a good team actually with a good bench the only eyebrow raiser for me is Asquith think he’s the best utility back we have and consistently reliable. Just hope that we have had our post international pile of poop game gone out of our system no pun intended and crack on!!

Was frustrating watching the Glasgow game, I hope they're all fired up for tonight.

Love seeing Rawlins name on the team sheet, gives us that little bit of a spark, does anyone know what's up with Ed Kennedy, is he out for a long time? Good ball carrier.
