JC's back although I can't see him playing more than 60 minutes. Damn. But I hope he brings some spark to the team.

Looks like Grayson's got faith in the backs game with JC returning. Lewitt and Browne II are great ball carriers. I just hope they can turn up tomorrow. Having JC on Carlos' shoulder should help tremendously...he's just not had great support despite playing quite well recently.
Stuart made an annoying comment on the Rugby Club the other night criticising Saints for bringing in Labit and not using academy players. Do some research, Messrs Hopley, Rae and Easter have all been injured in addition to Browne. Didn't leave us with much choice really.
Heart breaking game today, Saints didn't really deserve to lose that. That post-half time 10 minute spell was just **** really...but the fightback was incredible. In the end injuries just took their toll I think. Story of our season really.
Such a difficult game to watch, I only remember a couple being more tense, and one of them was the World Cup final! I think Saints played well but it just wasn't good enough and I think a lot comes down to the Worcester result..... if they win then i think that is probably it.
