Johnny Williams. I think it’s his middle name. 
Yep. Already too many Williams in the squad, and we have another Johnny, so Bleddyn it must be!
Future legend JBR Williams! Just needs the chops.

Watching Wasps v Sale now. Sale look competent, but not unbeatable. Faf de Klerk not playing, not sure why.
I think we can beat them, the question is how many changes Glenn will introduce with the Wales players back, and how well we gel.
We're still still here!

An atypical Prem sides for me. Lots of contact skills, proficiency in the set piece, solid defence, not so much invested in flair,

Could be a question of who keeps their discipline best. Sale have just given away three yellows in eleven minutes

3 yellow cards today for Sale, 11 (if I heard right!) for the season. Discipline definitely an area we could target, although I’m sure they’d be saying exactly the same!

Credit to Sale for winning that game but Wasps were tactically naive and if you can’t score a try v 13 you deserve to lose

  They will bring De Klerk, De Jaeger, Johnno Ross and Tom Curry into that 23 .

   We need to them up front, possibly target there scrum . We will need to bring Wyn ,Ken, Jake up front ,possibly Blade on bench to cover lock, if fit ??

   I would start Sanjay at 15, with Halfers on wing ,for his counter attack from deep . Sale defend very narrow,I felt they were sealing off a lot ,and looking to seal off at breakdown .

      This will be a titanic clash, we have won our last four games against English opposition .

Gosh Sale must be almost as indisciplined as us, we may end up with a game of 7s in the end😂.
I wonder whether bringing back any of the international players will make any difference if we go into the game with our recent game plan.  First half against Connacht and in most of the games this season our game plan seemed to be kick deep and back our defence and pick up penalties or turnovers in or around the opposition 10 mitre/25 mitre lines.
In the second half it seemed like the players threw that game plan away and went for bust (in order to save their European cup qualifying hopes), and we really looked useful.  Play with that freedom we could surprise Sale, play to the first half game plan and it could be a very uncomfortable evening for all involved.

I hope that all returning Internationals feature in the starting 15. Also I think we have to seriously consider having Tom Rogers in the back 3. We are a team who lack real pace & he showed what he can do 2nd half against Connacht. Don't see them putting Johnny Mc straight back in so an interesting selection dilemma from Halfpenny, Liam, Steff Evans & Tom. 

To win against Sale as all Premiership teams we will have to be solid in the front 5. RR has highlighted above where they will go for us for sure. Pieter & Javan have fronted up well recently in all fairness & Steffan Thomas has done all asked of him - admittedly this is going to be a big step up for them.
