@Geordiefalcon, is his contract up this year? Maybe there's a decent offer on the table that he's not taken and therefore heading off to France etc and Deano ain't impressed and dropped him.

His contract runs out in 2023 WIll. So he should be ok. Hes not been visible in many games this season, and its just been confirmed that hes not injured on the Falcons forum...so who knows. Maybe hes just not performing as well as the others in training....

Anyone know what the story is with Joe Simmonds? He’s barely played and looked a way off the pace when he has. Harvey Skinner actually looking the better of the two right now.

It is puzzling. Maybe his repeatedly being snubbed by Eddie while his brother (as well as Smith, his main rival as a young England 10) went off with the Lions all got a bit much for him and he's struggling to find motivation.

Regardless, I think we can classify this match as "Cripple Fight"
I stand by this comment.
With Tempest back at the Rec... you could say the same for the man with the whistle

Wasps starting side and Baths backline couldn't be classed as cripples (on paper)

Falls apart a bit beyond that - but nothing ridiculous

AJ back <3

That backline is an AJ and a Faf/Raf away from being my first choice
Surprised Schoenert isn't starting - Coenie is a liability tbh

Do like the side, though - hopefully put in a full 80 performance, rather than 20-40

Manu's been crap for us, tbh

His ceiling is higher than Rohans, their tackle technique is equally dodgy, but Rohan is in better form, and is significantly faster

Also i'm sure i heard that Manu doesn't play on artificial pitches though that might be BS
