    What's happened to Jordan Williams? Doesn't seem to be anywhere near the match day squads anymore. Such a shame, so much talent....

    He's been in the squad frequently,played against Leicester a couple of weeks ago, not sure how much as the club website doesn't have a stats section. Was unlikely to play in the European games

    Ellis is way behind Louw for the 7 shirt he seems to be being groomed for now.
    Clark is behind Tapuai, JJ and Freuan.
    Lahiff I'd suggest is 3rd choice on either side of the scrum.

    Batty - yeah, fair play, pretty evens between himself and Dunn currently.
    Neither Louw or Watson are available, I agree on both counts but based on what Blackadder has available to him both are first team selections.

    You're right about Ewels, given all the back row injuries we've had he has been first choice in a lot of scratch packs but really he's a bench player, true.

    Batty Vs Dunn ... it's the classic loose Vs set piece hooker question. I'd go for Batty personally, Dunn prob has higher ceiling though

    Yes, but that still makes them 2nd XV players. Oh, and Louw's off the injured list; just given an extra week to get his fitness up (not wirth risking in the Useless Cup on a plastic pitch); Watson due back around now, but yes, still on the injured list (9 weeks and counting, prognosis for a jaw# is 8-10 IIRC).

    Gods, we must be board if we're reduced to arguing this one.

    Sheesh, even Pro12 basement boys Treviso can pick up a routine away win in this competition against a team from a "top" league.

    Anyone know where I can find video highlights of the Ospreys v Grenoble game? Heard Keelan Giles scored a magical try. Would quite like to see.

    Bath Vs Cardiff, Thursday 7.45 on Sky

    Bath:
    15. Tom Homer
    14. Jack Wilson
    13. Jonathan Joseph
    12. Ben Tapuai
    11. Aled Brew
    10. George Ford ©
    09. Kahn Fotuali’i

    1. Nick Auterac
    2. Ross Batty
    3. Max Lahiff
    4. Charlie Ewels ©
    5. Dave Attwood
    6. Tom Ellis
    7. Francois Louw
    8. Taulupe Faletau


    16. Michael van Vuuren; 17. Beno Obano; 18. Shaun Knight; 19. Elliott Stooke; 20. Zach Mercer
    21. Darren Allinson; 22. Adam Hastings; 23. Max Clark

    Finally - an injury list that is shorter than the previous week.
    Not considered due to injury: Henry Thomas, David Sisi, David Denton, Matt Banahan, Chris Cook, Rhys Priestland, Dan Bowden, Anthony Watson.
    I think that's the first time it's dropped below 12 all season. Surely the first time our injured list is smaller than the opponent's

    Rotated out (unenforced): Nat Catt; Tom Dunn; Jack Walker*; KPN; Luke Charteris, Matt Garvey; Guy Mercer**; Paul Grant**; Will Homer**; Robbie Freuan*; Semesa Rocco & Jeff Williams


    * More likely just given a little extra time to heal
    ** Look, we're actually leaving people out because they can't make the squad! (though I'd still prefer WHomer to Allinson)


    Cardiff:
    15. Matthew Morgan
    14. Cory Allen
    13. Rey Lee-Lo
    12. Willis Halaholo
    11. Blaine Scully
    10. Steven Shingler
    09. Lloyd Williams

    1. Rhys Gill
    2. Kirby Myhill
    3. Taufa'ao Filise
    4. George Earle
    5. James Down
    6. Maceuley Cook
    7. Sam Warburton (c)
    8. Josh Navidi

    16. Matthew Rees; 17. Brad Thyer; 18. Scott Andrews; 19. Jarrad Hoeata; 20. Seb Davies
    21. Ellis Jenkins; 22. Tomos Williams; 23. Nicky Robinson

    Yarp, though only with one eye as I try to do paperwork in a different window - do we post naughty-links here, or are they banned?

    If you mean porn I'm pretty sure it's banned.

    Batty just butchered a guaranteed try... No defender in front of him 5m from the line, all he had to do was catch the bloody ball.
    What is the sin bin? Is it some kind of Catholic skip area?

    Not sure it was as clearcut as all that, there was a gap but there were defenders. You're right that it was a terrible balls up though

    And what happened there ... he seemed to drop it onto his foot then forget to kick it?!

    Not Ford's day so far, looking a bit blunt in attack as well

    Bath feel like England from the start of Lancasters era, uninspiring and going nowhere for ages then suddenly find ourselves in a prime try scoring position just to then butcher it.

    Yay - some execution, finally.

    I think you're being harsh again RR - we're playing all the rugby, it's just not been quite coming off.
    We look the better team, just a bit rusty, and unaccustomed to playing together.

    Burt's England looked like honest toilers that could take any point given them, but not create anything for themselves - we're creating plenty, just finding a forward out on the wing, dropping the final pass, or slightly miscommunicating for an offload.
