Whos going to start v Sale?
« on: Saturday 25-Aug-2018, 11:38* »
So based on my knowledge (very little) about availability for Saturday heres how I see us lining up:

1. Marler
2. Elia Elia
3. Collier
4. Symons
5. South
6. Robshaw
7. Wallace
8. Bothma

9. Care
10. Smith
11. Walker
12. Lang
13. Marchant
14. Earle
15. Brown

Game changers
16. Crumpton
17. Auterac
18. Swainston
19. Glynn
20. Ward
21. Mulchrone
22. Tuapai
23. Chisholm Snr or Ibitoye

I can see Visser fighting his way into the team if hes over the man flu he had and Id assume Horwill if fit will play too.

That still leaves Sink, Baby Chis, Cat, Sialli, Alofa, Dombrant to come back/into the team.

That's generous.  I think Quins aspire to be able to put out an average side.

I don't think so. On paper I think it is a decent side, problem is they have not been playing up to the level they should be.  International FR, Exciting backs with plenty of pace.  Problem has been the sum of the parts not living up to it.  The bench is not great but I think that a few of the players missing will be available.

When I went into the Honours Bar last night Merrick was hobbling out with an injury boot on , along with Luamanu ... presumably they had been doing a Q and A in there , don't know if he gave an update .. anyone hear it ?

It ought to be a very exciting side. Maybe the locks are average (but that's not a bad thing) but front and back row look good. That should be a good attacking back line. On paper, a tough side to beat. On grass...?

I think one key will be whether the Cat is close to game fitness. If he is, I could see us starting with Lang at 10, Cat on the bench. If our 12s are all fit, I'd prefer to have a straight 12 rather than a 10/12 as Inside Centre.

If that's in reference to my using the phrase "straight 12", I meant a player who plays only as an Inside Centre, rather than a player who plays as a 10 or a 12. There was certainly no element of homophobic abuse meant.

Don't worry, I'm sure it was a joke. :)

I hope so! I certainly would not wish to be thought of as in any way homophobic.
