Cummins played well last 2 games. 4 strong second rows.

Yes, Cummins has come back well from obscurity. He has a better build for a mudbath showdown, more reminiscent of the Somme than Samoa. If everybody was available, I'd have Jake starting alongside Cummins with Tex starting at 8 and Lousi to help run in the tries after we've achieved forward superiority.

You have a better chance of achieving forward superiority with Lousi at lock IMO
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

I tend to agree. Ball, Louisi with Tex at 8, Aaron at 6, Mcloud at 7 with Cummins and Casseim on the bench. When you look at the way front row forwards play a huge part in the carrying process with other teams I can't help feel that we are underpowered in that area. From the little I have seen  Sebastian seems our best carrier. It also seems time for Ryan to be given more starts. He is our biggest and most effective carrying 2.

  Let's hope Brad gets his selection right with the weather as it is, he did not pick his heaviest 0ack to start against Edinburgh. So a 6-2 split on bench with Dan Davis covering the wing position.

I have heard worse ideas 157cb. Dan, in his school days, was an excellent centre - 13 and many thought/think he could make it playing there. Hell of a midfield Llandeilo had with Dan & Cory.Big smile

Nice to see Cummins hitting form.  When he first arrived he was excellent. Let’s hope his mojo is back and has a cracker
