several of us did voice our concern that we were short of an experienced front row
Now three fairly long term injuries to front rows leaves us with no more wiggle room to cover another injury and a lightweight but mobile pack.
There is no way Cator,Savelio and Lane can maintain the form and effort they are putting in playing 80 min every week


We need to bring someone in unless we have an academy player ready to step up. Those 3 players can be used through the middle particularly Savelio but leaves us short in the back row.

Difficult though Marcus, as we’ve no quota spot, and any available in England are probably cup tied.

.... and a £2M+ debt carried over from last year won't help.

I like what our new coach is doing, he’s evaluating our squad, don’t know what’s up with Tag & Brownie, or how long the prognosis is. These big guys could do with the scrums returning, a lot of them are on their knees after games.


I think we all like what Hodgson is doing with the club.
The problem he has now is we are missing Taylor,Bowden, and Masi for a fairly long period.
Brown is fit so will have to come in next week but the point i was making was you cant expect Savelio,Cator and lane to continue playing 80 minutes at the energy level they are now playing without having Subs on the bench to interchange and give them a rest.
Mao coming back will help but we are really short of some size once Satae and Sao come off.
Just hope we can also get these two signed up for one or two seasons more

Have to wonder if Bienek would have impressed once given a run of games

He's played the last two for Cas off the bench, I think. Interesting to see if he plays tonight.

EDIT: No, he isn't in the XVII.

We have other options if necessary, like shifting Mahe to centre, and “you will like this” move Griff into the pack.

Fash has certainly improved and will never let us down. As Marcus intimated, have we another academy starlet who could make his debut?

We’ve gone in with a small squad, and BH has only recruited Reynolds & Mitch, but we’ve almost had the perfect start, another addition up front, would certainly bolster us, it was discussed a lot on here, Even BH said Remi Casty was considered, but I think they thought his age was against this.

Just hope Tag Josh & Massi get themselves back asap.

Yes Griffin is the only back we have who is capable of moviing into the pack unless Fonua fancies himself as a tackle busting front row.
Dont think we have anyone in the academy even ready for reserve level never mind first team.
Luckily if we lose Connor to a ban then Connor Wynne will have finished his two week loan arrangement at York and can slot in at full back

FC had a recall clause on Wynne anyway.
