    BT Sport are talking about the new tackle laws enabling more offloading which could be a big plus

    Stands to reason I suppose. If tackles are lower, the ball is less likely to be locked in by the tackler.

    19. Jonathan Mills
    20. Ben Curry
    21. Mike Phillips
    22. AJ MacGinty
    23. Josh Charnley


    I imagine Tuitupou is doing one on one off, as he returns from long term injury, but I'd have really liked him in the centres and Addison on the wing (still his best position imo).
    Not too keen on Ioane at 7, he's a 6 or 8 for my money - understand why he's there, to add some more physicality and an extra carrying option, but I'd have started Curry with Neild or Ioane on the bench.


    It's incredibly mildly irritating that Bristol do their teams in a video.
    I just wanna see the team not spend 30s as they all pose for the camera
    @TRF_Olyy ask diamond what is his problem with Odogwu, as he hasn't been injured. (Well according to a mate of his).

    They do, the improved surface up there has contributed. Used to be able to rely, if that's the word, on it being a mudbath from October to February. Now they have the surface to play a style thats contusive to getting points.

    Signing players like Goneva also helps
    I don't know, apathetic bloody planet, I've no sympathy at all.

    Jesus, well played Newcastle, but this is as bad as I've seen Bath play since Mike Ford

    Priestland for Brew, Watson to wing, Priestland handed the tee?! I expect not, but that's what I'd be doing

    Ford's kicking is unacceptably bad at the moment, seriously has he even practiced? Brew is so **** it hurts, how many times has he knocked on or dropped a high ball? He is utterly useless and we need to get rid of him asap.
    What is the sin bin? Is it some kind of Catholic skip area?

    I've been pretty happy with him in general, he's been gash today though. Along with half the team

    I'm as puzzled as you
    Only thing I can think is them trying to get their money's worth with the league guys
    If he doesn't play in the next two Europe games then something is wrong

    That said he was signed to the academy so maybe his run of games early doors just raised our hopes for where he is in Dimes' plans...
    But he did look really good




    Not watching the bath game but it sounds like Ford is adjusting his kicking to suit being a Sale player already

    That is another stunning finish from Roko! Maybe he made it harder than necessary though?

    Plus Bladders clearly had a cunning plan at HT

    Hahaha. Got to admit I don't get this Sale and Ford link it just does not make sense to me from Ford's point. Surely if he does leave then Wasps, Saints, Tigers will all be in for him for one reason or another. With all respect to sale who are a great club they can't be 1st choice over the above teams.

    As a Wasps fan I'd take him over Cipriani anyday and let's face it we are after anything that breaths. I like Cips but he bloody scares me at times, does daft things every game and I just know at some point he will cost us big. I prefer Jimmy at 10 for us.

    I think Saints will eject Jim and surely Ford at 10 could start a new "dawn" under a new DOR

    Tigers again same story as above.
