Fonau has been named in the Tonga squad - along with Steve Mafi also. clap

Rizzo is one of only 5 props still in Italy's expanded squad so is also almost certain to be at the RWC.

O'Connor and Kitto are involved with their respective ITM cup teams.

Owen Williams, Benjamin and Morris are still coming back from injury as far as I know? Manu is still struggling last I heard as well.

That to go with the obvious world cup absentees of Ayerza, T Youngs, Ghirildini, Cole, Mulipola, B Youngs and Goneva. Bai is in Fiji's 38 man squad so no confirmation there yet.

What side are we expecting for pre season? Below is the squad:

1.Brugnara, Sio
2.Bateman, Thacker
3.Balmain, Pasquali
4.Slater, De Chaves, Barrow
5.Kitchener, Fitzgerald
6.Croft, Williams
7.McCaffery, Thacker
8.Pearce, Crane

9.Harrison, Tresidder?
10.Burns, Bell

11.Betham
12.Roberts, Bryant
13.Loamanu, Catchpole, Smith
14.Thompstone
15.Tait, Bell

I'd like to see Roberts and Catchpole both given a go with a more experienced player beside them, i.e. 12.Roberts 13.Tait or 12.Loamanu 13.Catchpole.

In the forwards I'd really like to see Farnworth brought in for pre season at hooker so that we have the capacity to give Thacker a start at openside.

With Goneva on international duty, Camacho unconfirmed and Benjamin/Morris injured we could see Loamanu or Matt Smith on the wing.

Also, looking at Argentina's squad I notice that Camacho isn't in there. That means he won't have another chance to prove his fitness and form unless resigned for preseason or longer. I personally hope he resigns as he offers something different to our other wing options.

From years gone by Matera, Amorisino and Agulla are also involved.

We also have the veteran prop/coach to cover the RWC as well. Parr wasn't it?

Camacho I hope gets sent to play in the Sevens. Would be a good opportunity to show his fitness and earn a new contract.

Fonua looking like he has lost a lot of fat this off season:

https://instagram.com/p/6l7q5MkZr4bZ5xLqwuZBcuZkgWev1yeeCKIvU0/

Sounds like on RL he is thriving in the challenge training Leicester are doing.

Fitness was the main worry with him and it has been addressed by the looks of it.

Can't wait. Fortunately the WC in England means we can keep an eye on him.

He still looks monster sized and to be fair when he played for London Welsh his work rate was pretty good it seemed to be his fitness that let him down. Be interesting to see how he goes for Tonga before coming over to us. Would have been nice to have him on board all of preseason as we do like our tight game and he'll need to show his lifting, scrummaging and mauling skills.

Post by Welly Fri 21 Aug 2015, 9:29 pm

Kitto had a good game this morning.

I think it is working out alright with him at ITM he gets good game time there and we can have Harrison and Tresidder getting game time here, hopefully we will have 3 scrum halves all match fit and plenty game time ready for the season.

O'Connor starting tomorrow.

Guess for Argentina game sounds like we will have a team of:

1) Ayerza/Brugnara
2) Bateman
3) Balmain
4) Fitzgerald
5) Kitchener
6) Croft/Williams
7) McCaffrey
8) Crane
9) Harrison
10) Burns
11) Betham
12) Bai
13) Camacho
14) Thomsptone
15) Tait

16)Thacker
17) Bruganra/Sio/Parr
18) Tiz
19) Williams/De Chaves
20) Pearce
21) Tresidder
22) Bell
23) Loamanu/Catchpole/Smith/Roberts.

I reckon Bai will prob start ahead of Roberts and Camacho will prob start to prove fitness etc.

Leicester linked to a SA player (not mentioned).

NOT Olivier or Steyn.

De Villiers mentioned.

De Jongh would be amazing still out of super rugby contract and Meyer will prob snub him again.

Can't think of many other Backs that will be out of contract.

Francois Hougaard signed with a Japan rugby team but will be free between that.

Could be a lesser known player or might be a forward though.

Big Bok prop on short term contract?

Mauger didn't say we'd necessarily sign a centre so it could be a full back. Don't know anyone available mind. I was hoping he'd know a gem or two from the ITM. The next Milner Scudder before a Super 15 team does.

Cockers did say we are trusting the youngsters @ prop so might not be after an old SA prop then.

Also seems Wells is still around the Leicester set up was with them on the timber sports training day thing.

Wonder what the situation is with him?

He's a player with potential. Needs to decide whether to continue bulking up and become a lock or work on his speed and be a blindside. I imagine he'll be loaned back to the Championship again.

I'm glad we're backing the young props. There's talent there and it needs game time. We need to get Pasquali in with a Championship side for regular game time next season after the RWC period.

In other news, delays in the clubhouse end development mean that season ticket holders in the new stand (ie me) will be in random locations for at least the first two AP games as well as the man sausage of the North..

Manu is training but not fully fit. Last Cockers said it was a frustrating groin injury that they just have to wait and work with there's no quick surgery fix.

I'm slightly confused how we can build the secind biggest free standing stand in the country in one summer but this build is dragging. I hope the club are getting a discount on this.

They started earlier on Cat stand (or whatever it is now) a few games at the end of the season were over at the Crisp Bowl I seem to remember. Also access was a lot easier as all the equipment could be in the car park etc.

They had a change of contracted I think, also had a problem with the ground (which isn't unusual).

Apparently the steel will be put in next week.

I'd prefer Camacho stuck to the wing and we used Smith and Catchpole as the outside centres.

But then I prefer Thompstone and Betham on the wing I think Camacho needs to start to prove fitness and because it is against Argentina IMO.

Give Camacho, Betham, Thompstone and Loamano half a game each. I don't see the problem with rotation in the first game of pre season. Maybe even a different fifteen in each half. We'll have Ayerza playing a half for each side so might as well name two sides and let the younger guys have a chance to stake a claim against international opposition.

First/second
1. Ayerza/Brugnara
2. Bateman/Thacker
3. Balmain/Pasquali
4. Fitzgerald/Barrow
5. Kitchener/de Chaves
6. Croft/Williams
7. Mac/Owen
8. Crane/Pearce
9. Harrison/Tresidder
10. Burns/Bryant
11. Betham/Loamano
12. Roberts/Bai
13. Catchpole/Smith
14. Thompstone/Camacho
15. Tait/Bell

If you know the lineups early they can prepare as units in the lead up to the game as well.

Will Marcos definitely be playing half the match for Tigers? I know it's been going around for a while but I thought it was based purely on him saying he would like to switch at half time when the match was announced. Not sure the UAR will be happy with that.

Don't think it is def Marcos said he was going to play for both, but if it happens is a another thing.

TBH Marcos isn't that sort of person to use it in an advantageous way in his testimonial and friendy it would also have no benefit for both line out teams if you no the calls before hand.

Personally it would be a great benefit to know how your team reacts to turnover ball from a lineout, both attacking & defending.

As expected Cockers has stated that most of the remaining squad will get a run out at the weekend. Camacho will be starting as expected but nothing more than that anounced.

Personally I agree fkaS on Camacho, i.e. I'd prefer him on the wing. On merit from last season Thompstone deserves to start and Betham also does on talent. However it's preseason and all three will be involved at one point in the match anyway so I'd give Gonzo a start. I'd also like to see Loamanu given a start at 13 if Manu is still struggling with his groin.

Is Slater injured again or has it been announced he won't be involved against Arg?

Heard today that Crane and Williams might be injured for a while.

Slater prob won't be playing for the preseason.

That would be a real shame for Crane as he will probably need to take every chance he gets with Fonau and Pearce nipping at his heels.

Owen or Mike?

Is it due to another injury that Slater isn't playing or is he just being rested?

Mike

Slater knee (I think) isn't and wasn't 100% taking our time with him.

Owen is still injured from his nasty injury last season, likely to be him. Mike has been training in the pre season pics so you'd assume he's ok.

That's understandable with Slater given he was out for last season and he's so key for us. With Kitch, Fitzgerald, De Chaves and Barrow we are well stocked for a pre-season anyway. I was looking forward to seeing how all the RWC boot camp fitness training had affected Slater's game though!

I was under the impression that Owen and Morris wouldn't make the start of the season, probably not until next year for Niall sadly. In that regard hopefully it's Owen as it will be good to see the contrast in our play between having Croft or MW at blindside.

Barrow might not be match fit just yet, not sure.

Think Benjamin might be out start of season as well.

Looks like we'll have a fairly strong side in both halves. Catchpole at 12 is an interesting call, his distribution is his key weakness so it'll be interesting to see what changes Mauger has made to his game. I hope Bryant gets a go at 12 I think he is the one Mauger could develop into a real classy centre eventually in the mould of Howard, Gibson and Mauger himself.

Everyone is getting a go upfront. Some young guys there should really be going all guns blazing to prove themselves early in this preseason as places could be up for grabs.
