Clough, OB, Roche and Ferguson back for this one- not sure if they will want to risk any of them on the 3G pitch, esp Ferguson and Clough but it would be good to Clough or Roche back for English who only played as we were desperate, if both are able to play we can have taai play 80 at second row which would allow OB to go on the bench
Be nice to have
Darnell
Jerry
Innes
Turner
Uate
Gaskell
Frawley
Clough
Leeming
Matagi
Taai
Wardle
Lawrence

OB
Roche
Seb
Mellor

What do we think about switching positions between innes and uate? Would allow innes to drop back for the kicks and uate might get a bit more ball. Yet to see this guy in space.

Thought this for a while Jools didn't he play in the centre for Fiji?

Harsh to drop Innes I know as he had a great game against KR. But I reckon Jake Wardle will go back to centre with Uate on the wing. Id like to see them get a couple of games together but in a couple of week Leroy will be back and Turner will be partnering Uate.

dont think we will see anyone back apart from maybe obrien and roche.

innes senior played well last time, what a great try saving tackle!!! dont think he deserves to be replaced, but sam wood never did anything wrong and he got dropped so who knows.

bigger turnaround than london , we seem to be fairing ok on that score this season!

roberts maybe out so can see roche coming in for him, that london pitch could suit roche, but he will prob get injured again :roll:

I know this will get shot down, but i haven't seen any rugby ability from either of the Innes twins yet that suggests they will make the step up. They are big athletes who have matured ahead of their time, but for me with young players i'm looking for more than physicality. Take for example Gleeson and Conner, you could see ability with both of those backs straight away. It's early days but i can't recall anything from either of the Innes twins to suggest they are more than just good athletes.

Seniors are totally different to Connor. They are both big and athletic and when they develop further and their frames fill out you will see the best of them. I think they are both along with Jake Wardle are ready replacements for Leroy/Jerry/Uate when the retire.

Woolford has said he think Jake Wardle can stay fit and after another pre season will be right up there with the best centres in the league. Keeping him fit is easier said to than done, though.

Could we see a back line of the following in 3 years?

Darnell
Louis Senior
Sam Wood
Jake Wardle
Innes Senior
