Exeter Chiefs: 15 Phil Dollman, 14 Matt Jess, 13 Ian Whitten, 12 Sam Hill, 11 James Short, 10 Gareth Steenson, 9 Dave Lewis; 1 Moray Low, 2 Jack Yeandle (c), 3 Tomas Francis, 4 Ollie Atkins, 5 Geoff Parling, 6 Dave Ewers, 7 Julian Salvi, 8 Don Armand.
Replacements: 16 Elvis Taione, 17 Alec Hepburn, 18 Harry Williams, 19 Lewis Stevenson, 20 Kai Horstmann, 21 Will Chudley, 22 Will Hooley, 23 Max Bodilly

No Thomas The Tank for the Chiefs is a blow for them. Nice to see Kitch and Williams come back in for Tigers. Pearce announces he's off then promptly gets dropped, not unexpected. This could be a tough day at the office for a misfiring Tigers team as Exeter look very competitive.

Exeter themselves have not been in the greatest form since the new year. Must win game for us really - can we do it, who knows.

I rate Armond more than Waldrom when it comes to an arm wrestle.

Armond or Ewers will be told to stay opposite Manu the whole time (Like Wallace was), the other will handle the heavy tackles for Salvi to try and pilfer.

Waldrom wouldn't allow that dynamic.

Going to be tough with Mordt at 10.



Pretty strong Saints team, missing just 2 players.

Shows Saints strength in depth at TH that they can bench Hill.

Given the iffy nature of our defence recently I fear Waldrom would be barrelling through gaps far to readily. You're right though Armond is a good abrasive player.

It'll be a tough game. Just hope we can do some damage on build on last week. Our error count still needs work but with that bench we should be strong into the second half.

Going to be a tough game for Quins.

We can win if we play smart and tactically. But if we don't, if we play the headless chicken stuff. Then I expect us to lose.

I hope Botica survives the game!! We have no more 10s to use and are covering 10 using either a centre (Hopper/Marchant) or a scrum half.

Either way not good.

So far so good from Warriors but so very close. Worcester usually have a good first 40 so if that was it we're stuffed! Looks a different sort of game tbh. chin

I thought Worcester worked hard for that and deserved the win despite the very tight finish. It's going to make the bottom of the table very interesting indeed over the next few matches with London Irish due to meet both Wuss and Newcastle. I think Irish have got Bath tomorrow haven't they? If Irish win then things get even more interesting.

Going to be tough with Mordt at 10.



Pretty strong Saints team, missing just 2 players.

Shows Saints strength in depth at TH that they can bench Hill.

Saints reverting to the early season line up that just didn't work, Burrell and Pisi at 12 and 13 respectively. Last year it was okay, the year before very good., But Pisi has lost a yard or two and that backline couldn't score un-opposed in early season.

Sarries too showing strength in depth, I would give Saints the edge in the lineout with Matfield, Lawes, Gibson and Wood all excellent options, and possibly the front row although they are a bit smaller than Sarries, especially with Hamilton starting and giving real grunt from lock, also Saints having a very lightweight back row.

That's a huge IF given our away form ... I think that result could only have been worse for LI if both teams had got try bonus points ...

Looking for positives from a London Irish point of view I guess Falcons losing at home to a team below them and breaking their positive run of home form must be a good thing as it slows their momentum somewhat. Best thing that can happen now though is Irish beating Bath to drag them into the dogfight at the bottom. In fact, with my cynical hat on, if Bath do start to look in danger Wray might try to influence the adoption premiership ring fencing... Wink

9 - 7 to Sarries at FT. Sarries playing with a stiff breeze at their backs.

Saints had the possession and territory, but only a single try. Sarries not really threatening apart from a 10 minute spell. George showing up well for them as Wood is for Saints.

Spencer YC or handing in the ruck 2 m out from his line. Ref bottles a second YC immediately after when Sarries collapse a maul 1-2 m out for the third time this half.

Lawes couldn't walk off and had too be helped, couldn't put any weight on his left foot.

It will be interesting to watch Sarries play their kicking game against this wind.
