I wish they had continued with Thacker at 7. With some practise he would have been a terrific openside.

He is a really gifted player, but there does come a point when you can be just simply too physically small to play at top level in the front row. I don't think he will ever play internationally at number 2, regardless of ability.

We (Tiggers) are going to get dicked in the breakdown.

Not a fan of Slater at 6 at all - I just think we have too many 2nd rows at the moment.

Good to see Mulipola back on the bench.

And Williams back as well.

The 15 Englishman have been bolded to help less knowledgeable members of the forum pick them out :thumbup:

Good to see Thacker starting again, and in his third season Camacho makes only his second appearance and his first start for us.

I think we will make a game of it but i don't think we will be the ones to stop Sarries streak

Toyally agree with this and said so after the last game.

Bit of rotation again. Not sure what to make of it. All the players are capable, not so sure about the combos for Sarries away. The bench is really strong.

I thought Slater had a huge game against Munster at WR. Though not so great at Thomond. Don't mind picking him at 6. We are missing a ball stealer, but McCaffrey needs a rest, and I guess O'Connor picked up a knock. Will need a massive shift from the pack to win this one. Pleased to see Thacker getting 2 starts in a row. His darts were good last week, and the scrum was strong with our frontline props, not so much with Mulipola went off.

Camacho finally making his starting debut. Hope the worst is finally behind him for his sake. No Betham or Smith, though Tait was really good last week. Freddie seemed to find some form last week too and will get sharp service from Harrison.

I'm really looking forward to it; one or two selections that are hard to predict, performance wise, especially given Mauger's influence. Should be fun, though I expect Sarries to shade it.

Would be happy with a lbp, but looking at the teams I don't even think we will get that.

It's a shame as it would have been a decent game with two full strength squads.

We have obviously picked out Exeter and Sarries away as games that we aren't too bothered losing, I don't really like that mentality, but we have won all our other games so I suppose you could say it's working.

Lovely weather. Still get the impression a load of tries are being scored this season despite the wet - Ok not last night - hopefully the plastic will prove it's worth today.

When was the last time Sarries failed to score a 3-pointer in a first half?
