Full strength for this one, a win here will go a long way to securing the top 3 place in the conference. I read there will be a minutes silence for the 5th anniversary of the Spence family tragedy, it will be an emotional occasion so we'll need to be prepared for that.

A lot of calls to be made with niggling injuries and a few Lions coming back. I am happy to say I don't really care which way the calls go because with the quality involved it won't detract from the team either way.

The best selection in Belfast for the first serious test of the season...Against Edinburgh at home, Pivac can use from the start players not completely fit like Foxy or Ken.

He's a tough bugger that's for sure, but I do worry about how long he can keep going with his dodgy shoulder. Which does give some concern as to the depth of our back row as we already have one player carrying a serious ailment in Condy and Cubby already out. We need a further back row injury like we need a hole in the head I'd say.
 
We have Rawlins who can play 6 and Tom Phillips who is showing signs of progress for the RFC. But it ain't half going to put a burden on Wil, Shingler and Josh. Even if Barclay soldiers on he will be away with Scotland.
 
Aside of the boys mentioned above who else is there? Shaun Evans, is he ready?

  I would be happy with Foxy and Ken on bench for Friday of course,a massive game this early in the season I feel.
 
  Any news on Rawlins and Condy's fitness ??

1.  Rob
subs Ken, Wyn, Krugger, Bullbring, MacLeod, Cawdor, Asquith, Foxy.

Despite improvements in Cawdor's distribution I still think Aled is the best 9 to get the backs moving. Cawdor is a tremendous try-scoring replacement, with his power pace and acceleration against a tiring opposition. What better combination could you ask for?
Wouldn't even have Aled on the bench. Gareth to start and Evans on bench. I feel you're massively underestimating what Gareth brings.

Aled is a more rounded scrum half than both Gareth and Johnathon and demonstrated it again on Saturday as well as on tour with Wales in the Summer.

Cawdor keeps defences a little more honest and his passing has looked sharper this year. Aled does have a quicker service but is not a threat to run.

Personally I would go for the same team that started against the Kings, but with Boyde in for Cubby.  Put Foxy and Ken on the bench, in place of Rhys Jones, and Emyr (and Mcloed on the bench cos Boyde is starting)

A good choice apart from a couple of things - Rhys Jones at the moment is our back up 10/kicker. I think Asquith has played 10 before but not for us. Don't think we'll see Foxy until Edinburgh as he had the biggest work load of our Lions.

Parkes was our back and 10 for the semi and final last season and did surprisingly well, so he'll do.

In the most general way, I'd agree with you - Cawdor is definitely more of a running threat. TBF to Aled, though, he did turn one game single-handedly last season (forget which), including a searing break. He also scored a good try on Sat. by running an intelligent support line - something the whole team has been developing under Stevo, by the look of things. 

We are very lucky indeed to have such strength in depth at 9 (with Jon Evans as well) - or maybe, that's planning and good recruitment and retention! Well done to the coaches and scouts.

Yeah, it was Munster, and I've got a soft spot for Aled but to be honest, at the moment I don't mind which 2 scrumhalves get into the 23 and feel sorry for the one that stays out, so little there is between all 3.

Speaking of which (and a bit out of topic, but) are any of them out of contract at the end of the season?
