Great to see Tuilagi starting and RJVR back on the bench, just in case we didn't have enough power!

Tom Curry and Quirke probably deserving of a week off, however I'm never thrilled to see Hammersley starting.

Hoping for another strong defensive effort and some go forward through the centre.

Jono Ross - worth the wait (for 10 mins of action before he gets carded, optimistically 12 minutes of action)

On a serious note Sale should take this comfortably. However I think Quins are smart here. If they get lucky and this result + Exeter goes their way then they are still in with a shout next week. However assuming Sale get BP win then that forces Exeter and Sale to play strong teams next week in what would essentially be a copy of the semi-final. This would mean both sides can't give their players a rest and if Quins can beat Bristol, they will be facing either a Sale or Exeter side who haven't had a good rest. For Bristol they could be in heaven being able to rest next week and having Sake and Exeter going head to head 2 weeks in a row.

Yep. This is what I was getting at on another thread.

We have no chance of a home semi final so we might as well rest our most important players. TBH, I’m surprised Marchant is starting.

Form going in to the play offs is overrated IMO. They’re knock out games and we will still have a puncher’s chance even if we play our second string for the remaining league rounds.

Quins really looking like we're getting as close to throwing this game as we realistically can tbh.
I get the reasons why, but I still don’t like to see it.

It won’t be a Chiefs / Falcons, but what should have been a stonking game won’t be.

Never under estimate our ability to choke when the pressure's off

One of our physios has tested positive for COVID so Manu is out (negative test but close proximity so has to isolate)
RdP starts and Reed onto the bench


Getting serious flashbacks from last season

Not sure why so much is being made of Manu, clearly he’s pretty unique but it’s not like he’s been a constant in the Sale back line that’s suddenly not there....

Think he's the only player a lot of journalists know
Last week all the stories were about how he inspired us to victory when I'm not sure he even touched the ball

I hate being right all the time

Poor from Yarde, leaves way too much room on the wing then tackles RdP as he tries to get across

Not sure how Faf got the ball back there after kicking it. Feel it should be checked, I felt he dived on the ball after the quins player had it.

De Clerke must be soo annoying to play against, one of the few players that’s actually every bit as the pundits make out.

Don’t think Quinn’s ever had control tbh so kind of dropping and gathering a loose ball I think.
