Like the look of that however I might be tempted to bench Foxy and Ken for Parkes and Elias so they can come on and secure the win/bring a boost.

Nor should they start. They will need to earn their places over the next few weeks

Think the only change will be Halfpenny to FB with Jonny to wing & Grabham missing out on the 23. Can see Foxy & Ken coming back into the 23 for Edinburgh home.

I've seen John Barclay wincing and favouring his shoulder after the latest dangerous clearout/big tackle on him since he's joined us. Hopefully he'll be fine.

No doubt it'll be something like that - I'd swap 1/2p and McNicholl, and I doubt that Foxy and Ken will start - so they'll probably bench with Parkes and Ryan beginning. If Barclay is out, then Macleod starts - that might be a problem for the bench as we'd be out of 7s, so Phillips or Rawlins (is he fit?). Not much to choose between Aled and Jon Evans at 9 bench, either.

The squad is looking pretty well stocked at the moment, with just a worry over the 7 position if Barclay can't play for a while.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Replacing players who have done nothing wrong is something I believe we will see quite a bit of this season, the coaches have already stated they intend to compete hard on both fronts, that doesn't happen by just having 1 first choice player for each shirt, squad rotation is massive in the game now to ensure players are not burnt out.
This is without doubt the best squad depth I've seen here since Regional rugby started were we have 3 or 4 options in most positions.
Whoever starts in Ulster it's a safe bet we will be very competitive in one of the toughest Stadiums to visit, let's just hope for dry weather and strong officials that won't be to affected by Ulsters 16th man.

And let's just hope competition organisers have had a 'quiet word' with the local TV people, regarding their ability to replay ad nauseam any ambiguous event which may reflect badly on the visitors, whereas they seem to 'lose' all evidence of brutality by the home team. (Nick Williams on Barclay, anyone?)

I'd go for-
15. Halfpenny
14, Mc Nicholl
13. Scott
12. Parkes
11. Steff
10. Patch
9.   Aled
8.  Barclay
7.  Boyde
6.  Aaron
5.  Beirne
4.  Ball
3. Samson
2. Ryan
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?

Nick Williams on A Shingler ? Roger Wilson on Barclay ?

Wilson got a 1 match ban for the punch. A pity that the Welsh ref Whitehouse that night didn't have the balls to give a red for striking an opponent  !!!!!

I thought Williams gave Barclay a forearm smash to the face a couple of years ago, conveniently 'lost' by the TV people - but I may be mis-remembering.

My understanding is that Ken is available for the trip to Ulster but Foxy will not be considered until the Edinburgh game.
