Wasps bench looks strong, but in general yeah you have a good chance.

Big amount of rotation for Wasps with all England players rested, makes senses with the 6 day turnaround. Big ask but doable if we stay in the game as that bench will do some damage.

Christian Wade seems to have really fallen out of favour. While he played last week, as a late change for Watson, he did look short of confidence and a shadow of his former self.

Young lad, in the centre / Fb. A strong defender, and pacy. Another who's creating a lot of talk.

Watson was ill overnight and Wadey got a call at 7am that day asking him to play. He didn’t look himself & I would put that down to the last minute decision to play him.
He gets this week off instead. We want our best players ready for Glaws & Europe.

Wasps rest their England players with the local press saying they came back too tired to train. Falcons select Wilson, though in an interview with the Times he talks about how tough England training is and if it was replicated throughout the season at clubs, players would break pretty quickly.

If Mark Wilson is feeling it, then its tough training.

Im really not sure what Eddie Jones is trying to achieve with this constant insanity in training.

Im really not sure what Eddie Jones is trying to achieve with this constant insanity in training.

I would have thought that what should happen is that almost all conditioning work would be done back with the player's own clubs, so that the training sessions will focus on integration (and to an extent skills).

Eddie feels some or all of the following
- That the players are not fit enough coming from the clubs
- That he wants training to equal or exceed test match intensity, so that the players will be more hardened to that intensity
- That an 'ordeal by fire' will help to pull the team together

I can see the point but there is obviously a cost in 'attrition' - which is OK when you get bumps and bruises but not OK when you get career ending injuries. I also think it is hard to find the right line in all this, but would have thought that it is not easy to both run the players into the ground to improve their conditioning and to teach them the finer points of coordinated team play at the same time.

By all accounts Mark wasn't complaining that it was too intense...in fact he was saying it NEEDS to be intense.

Maybe the players don't mind it as well think they do?

Oh Wilson was not complaining (and in someways was suggesting it was to be expected as the players try and outdo each other), but was pointing out you cannot sustain that level for very long.

True as well, but then with the adrenaline flowing they don't always know what is best for themselves either. It is not easy.

Yeah I'd take those comments with a pinch of salt, no one wants to publicly admit that they struggled or that they don't want to be in that environment. I doubt Eddie would look on that very favourably

Almost home wins all round, but I can see Saints winning at Bristol. Clearly Ashton Gate is a tougher place to play than it once was, but there is a large argument that their two wins came down to Bath and Quins ineptitude rather than Bristol's fine play. I think Saints' pack will come to the fore in the 2nd half.

It'll be interesting to see how Glaws react to last week. Frankly, Sarries were amazing and there are times when you just have to applaud their intensity. Nevertheless, I'm expect a few players with some bruised egos to make amends tomorrow against Quins.

Good Quins team. Good to see Horwill and Bothma back in the pack and Brown at 15. I'm pretty confident for this game, bit then I was the last two weeks so, who knows?

From Murphy's interview the other day I got the impression that they could have patched him up to play but they had planned to rest him at some point anyway and this was a good time to do it. I suspect Ben Youngs is only on the bench because Harrison hasn't passed the HIA protocol and will play a minimal amount.

Given the crazy nature of Jones training sessions it's probably for the best Manu didn't go.

Falcons unlucky there - the scrum that led to the try should really have been a penalty for Falcons as the ball was dislodged by a Wasps player on the ground knocking the ball out of the Falcons players' hands ....

This ref needs to up his game - nearly gave a drop out instead of a try (albeit Wasps shouldn't have been in that position in the first place) and then nearly gave a try when the ball was dropped ... for once the assistants are doing their jobs by stepping in.

We should be well ahead.

I'll not mention the ref today..oops. he's actually been ok to be honest. Better than the last two whos been here.

I can see wasps winning this in the second half and us rueing our chances on the first!

Thought the Wasps 12 regathered it before it but the ground.

Dickson has missed things for both sides I feel. But that is to be expected.
