ComeAllWithin Board / Re: Team for the final!
« Last post by T-Bone on Today at 01:32 pm »
I understand what some are saying about the Lawday vs Chisholm thing, in that Chis would probably have a much greater impact as a sub than Lawday would. However, he is clearly the better player, and so really should be starting. If we can't impose ourselves on them for the first half, then I don't think impact subs will be enough. I just can't see Exeter letting us get back into a game if we give them a healthy lead.

I really do think that the key to this game will be discipline. Don't give them easy field position, even if it means long defensive sets and no competing at the breakdown.

Happy with that team. Well balanced.

Best team we could put out. Excited, nervous, worried, proud.

ComeAllWithin Board / Re: Greenwood's take on tomorrow

Good article. Two of the match ups won't happen initially, and possible at all, but good analysis all the same. Greenwood still does very good analysis and writes good articles. I don't like his punditry and all the "he's a rock star" hyperbole, but he certainly knows his stuff

Yes, I was expecting Marchant on the wing. At least Northmore can come on in the second half and hopefully capitalise on some tired players.

Murley is such a good player when on form and will defend doggedly against their back 3. Surprised they didn't start Hogg and move Nowell out to the wing. That back 3 battle will be immense.

Northmore is such a live wire when he comes on. Adds so much spark. The balance is good with the team, Northmore comes on at 13 and March slides out for Murley.

Very happy to see Andre back in the team. The guy is what weíve cried out for since JTH retired. Harsh on Taps but itís knock out rugby and we have to win.

Only preference to the team would have kept Chis on the bench, like Northmore he adds so much if the game isnít going our way.

Can baby Chis do what Lawday did in the first half last week? Yes and then some. Can Lawday do what baby Chis did in the second half/extra time? I don't think so. I'd have started Lawday. I appreciate any replacement can be viewed as a step down but for this game.......

Else that's a great side and I'm pleased they didn't blink and start Marchant on the wing. Northmore will get on and it may change then but it looks a great back line. Big Andre crashing through with Green/Lynagh/Marchant on his shoulder. Happy days.

Not sure the next 28 and a half hours can go quick enough.

I'm a bit surprised that Murley has bee. Selected ahead of Northmore. Murley is a good young player. But Northmore has really improved this season. So much so I would rather he starts ahead of Marchant. Joe seems to be better suited to the wing these days.

Problem (if you can call it that) is Marchant and Northmore have been very good. Marchant was brilliant last week, as was Northmore. I think Marchant was always going to play, just depended if it was Wing or Centre. That then decided who out of Murley and Northmore would play.

I wouldn't underestimate Exeter's ability to play attacking rugby.

I'm not - but Exeter play with a lot of structure, and Quins... don't. In many ways it's a battle of who can best impose the way they play on the game.
