Out of the current options in the back row, who makes way for Robshaw's return?  Does his near-certain return to a starting position affect Clifford's desire to stay?

Clifford is small??? He is 6ft4. Bigger than Chisholm.

He's not. The internet might say he's significantly taller than, say, Chris Robshaw, but:

Chisholm is clearly a bigger bloke than Clifford too. Significantly beefier. The internet will tell you James Chisholm is 16 1/2 stone - that's about 4-5 years out of date. 

The Quins site, which like all rugby sites likes to exaggerate for the players sake, has both JCs at exactly the same height and weight, which is good going considering how much wider Chisholm is!

FWIW, Chis Jnr has bulked up but unfortunately at a cost as when I saw him at the big game I thought he looked quite ponderous and unathletic, to such a degree that I wasn't surprised he was subbed. Think he should loose a few pounds really to get back to his best.

You don’t think he was just a bit tired from all the games he’s played at full tilt so far.

I believe the U18s won again today, 3 from 3.

Alex Shaw is quite up on his U18 stuff. has tipped a Quins v Tigers final

These are tweets from him today

"Plenty for Quins to work with in lock Elliott Powell. Only player in defensive pods today that looked at both the hooker AND the knees of the attacking jumpers/lifters."

Here he is talking about Hooker Sam Riley
"One-man army at times. Saracens just couldn’t contain him and some of the offloads were sublime. Pinpoint, back of the hand stuff. Also, only player in both teams to warm-up in a shirt, not a long-sleeved training top. Nails."

You know they’re not standing next to each other in that photo right?

...It's Robshaw I'm comparing him to.

Correct, Blucher - Clifford's closer to the camera.

Having stood next to/talked to many players over the years it very clear that clubs fib about players' height and weight stats.

Just noticed this - he's 6'2 on the Quins site, which seems about right.
