    Quins have a good record at Sixways (I'm not sure we've ever lost?) but Worcester really need a win so throwing the form book out of the window, this is the sort of game I can see us losing ...

    Huge game for Sale, Bristol was prob hoping Philips would start.


    A win should prob mean they are safe.

    How has Freddie Burns looked at 15? IIRC, he's started there for the last few games.

    2 excellent offloads from Zach Mercer in the first minute, he's looking very impressive.

    Burns has looked decent at 15 last week good factual kicking game, was never under pressure in defence though.

    I thought Mercer didn't look like much for the U20's but he is proving me wrong this season, shame Bath have a international number 8 ahead of him but he should get his chances, then in 3 years should def be starting. (Even if it is at Tigers ;) )

    Gloucester side for the Northampton game tomorrow:
    Starting XV:
    15. James Hook; 14. David Halaifonua, 13. Andrew Symons, 12. Billy Twelvetrees, 11. Jonny May; 10. Billy Burns, 9. Willi Heinz (capt); 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. Richard Hibbard, 3. Salesi Ma'afu; 4. Tom Savage, 5. Jeremy Thrush; 6. Lewis Ludlow, 7. Matt Kvesic, 8. Ben Morgan

    Replacements:
    16. Motu Matu'u, 17. Paddy McAllister, 18. John Afoa, 19. Mariano Galarza, 20. Ross Moriarty, 21. Greig Laidlaw, 22. Matt Scott, 23. Henry Purdy

    Not entirely happy with the difference in turnaround for the two sides (Northamton: 8 days, Glocs: 4 days) but nothing to be done about it now.

    Not able to watch it but the local paper's text updates are raving about Roko. I guess they would, but still. I bloody love him
