What do we think the team will look like tomorrow?
« on: Thursday 14-Feb-2019, 15:05* »
So it's been quiet on here lately. No games for a while, no Prem for a looong time. But it's BACK.

Who do we think Gussy will go with when the team sheet comes out tomorrow? My attempt at guessing (taking into account Sinckler and Clifford still with England, suspensions to Bothma and Lasike and questions over Smith/Murley availability)...

1 Marler
2 Crumpton
3 Collier
4 Symons
5 Merrick
6 Dombrandt
7 Robshaw
8 Chisholm

9 Care
10 Smith (if he's released from U20s - if not, Lang)
11 Earle
12 Saili
13 Marchant
14 Ibitoye
15 Brown

16 Elia
17 Boyce
18 Ibuanokpe
19 Glynn (or could we see Horwill?!)
20 Wallace
21 Mulchrone
22 Lang (unless Smith is with U20s - in which case R Chisholm)
23 Murley (unless not released by U20s - in which case Alofa)

I was thinking about that earlier, and getting very excited! I pretty much agree with what you think. I reckon Horwill might start in place of Merrick, but I won't hold my breath. I hope Smith will be in. He has been improving really well throughout the season.

I think it is a bit different with the U20s.  Its up to the club if they select him, not England.  If Quins want/need him, we will have him.  Plus, I dont think Clifford was retained by England, he is free to play??

Good point. In which case, if Clifford's fit, I reckon he'll be on the bench ahead of Wallace given the fact that he's coming back from the knock picked up in England training camp. I'd personally have him starting ahead of Robshaw if fully fit though. The team sheet above is what I think it will be. If it was up to me it might look slightly different, but not much...

I'd really hope Horwill starts unless something bad happened on his return in the cup.

Murley got injured, assume no Smith given his U20 appearances so it'll be Lang (if true about being able to keep him then assume Smith on bench).

Clifford isn't with England but had that head knock that kept him out so lord knows. If he's got no ill effects I'd expect him to play and be disappointed if he didn't. He's played no rugby in ages.

Otherwise agree.

No but he’s played a lot of rugby - I’d be surprised if Gustard starts him. Could be totally wrong, maybe U20 isn’t as demanding.

I’m totally wrong (steady) Smith will play - they posted a video of him talking about this week’s match.

I'll be there, in my souped up Massive Tarty.

Really getting excited now, especially as for once the Driving Butler hasn't called in sick.

COYQ!

Looking forward to it and hopefully a good result too!

Is Cat injured at the moment or just not getting a look in? I get the feeling he may depart Harlequins come the conclusion of the 18/19 season or when his contract expires whenever that is.
