Replacements: Neil Briggs, Lee Imiolek, Jack Forster, James Gaskell, Kristian Ormsby, Will Cliff, Matty James, Rob Miller.


Changed up team, El Capitain on the bench with Seymour taking over the duties (must be expecting a torrid time in the scrum, as Gaskell not the heftiest of locks), Aston Croall starting hooker (maybe his strength will make up for Sheridans love of a lie down?) - Would've preferred Croall to be at 1., but he's a solid hooker, and it's good to see Imiolek get some time not in the 'A' team,.
Cohen at 13 (makes sense, as Tait and Tuilagi are injured and Bell is very average) - will be good to have more speed on the wing after Cueto/Cohen last week,
Also Tonetti starting at 12 (where he got a try last week in a few minutes playing there :p )

Good luck to them without Lewis-Roberts in the front row!

ELR would've started on the bench anyhow, and I'm happy to see Imiolek get his first gametime of the season. He did well at the end of last season, and for England U20s over the summer
But the loss of ELR against one of the stronger scrums in the Aviva isn't great, even if he would only be on for 20 or so

Terrible

Bath 31 - 16 Sale Sharks

Dicked in the first half, better in the second (spent about 20mins+ in Bath half) but only got 3pts from it, loads of knockons in Bath 22m and Sheridan poor in the scrum (surprise surprise) don't think he got much sleep last night as he was just having a lie down at every scrum. Got stronger when 20yr old Imiolek came on. Bath got a try in the last few minutes, and three in the first (one an intercept, one a big run for Hape). Wame Lewaravu with a try at 85 odd minutes. Won the second half 10-7, but it was a poor effort all told.
