Time for Foxy And Liam to stand up and show us they still have what it’s takes. 
So it’s 4 open sides out, and yet again Blade. We really need to figure out our back row stocks.

  Surprised we did not look at Cracknell and Robinson on loan, with so man injuries in back row all season long .

Cracknell plays for London Irish, he isn’t available 
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Not a bad side, although I would have preferred to see Steff Hughes in for Foxy and either he or Scott as captain.
Unfortunately with so much back talent on both sides I suspect that it will be forward set pieces and tackling that will decide it. I pray that we have started to sort out our lineout as we can't afford to squander limited possession the way we have done against Bordeaux and others.

Someone like Will Jones ex ospreys on loan could be an option. We are really seeing our back row stocks dwindle.


Sure we will bring someone in for next season, boyde back from cardiff, or tempt reffell back to wales hopefully with Pivac name checking him for being close to wales squad selection. 

And cubby still out ? 
Lezana injured quite a bit so far 
Josh aswell unlucky with injuries

 When Ospreys released him in November, I meant . Tough as teak and never injured .All ready scored at least 3 tries for Irish and Welsh qualified?

Robinson would have been ideal, think me missed a trick there

This season's signings -Baldwin, Will Griff and Lezana, haven't proved very durable.
To be fair to Lezana he has made a heck of a lot of tackles and it is not that surprising that he is occasionally injured.

We have four opensides who never can stay fit, our third choice TH will miss internationals, our top two blindsides are over 30 and one frequently suffers from concussion. We desperately need to balance our squad, right now I doubt it’s cheap, but what are we getting from it?

We should look at Ben Fry at Dragons. He’d behind Griffiths and Basham, and absolutely hard as nails.

They’ll be a handful in broken play with that backline though. 

Semi Radradra is going to cause us a huge amount of problems if he's given the space we gave Bordeaux last weekend. ConfusedConfusedConfused

Josh Helps over Jac Price is interesting.
Running low on 7's, Iestyn Rees not on the injured list so should be in contention for next week.

Ioan Lloyd at 12 has to be targeted, though they wouldn't put him there if he couldn't do a job.
Couple shots at him outside, inside and through him should give us an idea.

They haven't been even close to their best this season but are still very capable.
We cannot kick the ball aimlessly, Piutau, Radradra and co. will punish us

I'd be shocked if Jac Price wasn't injured or unavailable.

Starting team looks good, remember Shaun Evans doing well when he replaced Dan Davies in the team not too long ago.

If we get enough ball our backs should cause some damage.

I don’t think Blade had major concussion issues when we signed him initially. The problem was extending him last year in light of everything, while releasing Kennedy.
