Wasps backline is bloody tidy. Simpson starting again, presumably to give Robson some incentive to up his game after two subpar performances against Connacht. Hughes is EQP by the way

I shall watch as much as possible before being dragged off to watch my daughter being a shepherd (with no lines) during an interminably long Nativity play during a dreary Mass.

Luke Pearce such a competent ref at a young age. Should be given more internationals

Agree. Makes a nice change from Tim 'I hate rugby and every rugby player' Wrigglesworth and Matt 'you leave me no choice but to ask you nicely again' Carley.

Ford is brilliant at those delayed passes - almost impossible to defend against.

Quite. Pace + accurate passing is doing the damage to both sides.
