Neither are on the injury list, don’t know if they’ve been playing in the prem though.
As long as you win it once, you'll never be forgotten

Very happy to see Blacker and Jones in the squad, I’ve been begging for their inclusion lately!
Good team selection, what’s up with Revs?

Bordeaux playing their first string for this one….massive front 5, as befits all Top 14 teams.

Missing Jalibert at 10, but Trinh-duc is no bad replacement. Moefana at centre is a terrific talent, already capped.

I'm not sure how wise it is to start with Shingler in the second row against a "massive" Bordeaux front 5. To me it would make more sense to start with Morgan Jones and have Shingler coming on later, when there was more chance that the game was opening up.

I think Shingler is there for lineouts. Nervous about how our scrum will hold up.

Aye they have a 6’9 lad in the row.

Morgan is very short of game time and we clearly have no more fit flankers.

The lad up against WGJ would normally be employed in ‘security’.

No neck as such.

Getting battered at scrum time is a big concern here. If we can avoid that, we have enough pace and skill to give them a game.
We're still still here!

I really hope so. Leicester did just that, against pretty much the same side.

My biggest concern ( apart from that) is they will just be well drilled and match fitter. They have played 13 games to our 6.

Their bench is immensely strong.

Nothing to lose.
I am already in buoyant mood due to being able to go to next week's game, so I have a very positive feeling about Sunday.

Will explain my workings later, possibly!
We're still still here!

  We have 14 internationals starting! And two on bench.

   Go out be positive! Keep ball and run them ragged!

Is the game on tv? I’ve checked BT sport and it’s not on.

So, you know Hardy is not vaccinated then?
