what would your starting 17 be for this weekends opener in france??
mine would be
shame luke blake isnt fit but that would be my 17,we dont seem to have too bad a squad from what weve seen the last 2 games,wev been bulidin for toulouse and id say were ready to go now.i wouldnt play adam hayes just yet but would have him as 18th or 19th man along with josh tonks who is looking very promising and as continued from wer he left off last season.
I would go
Two bobs looks knackered, so I wouldn't include him until he gets somewhere near fit. Still think patch would be better at 13, would like to see brambani at 6 where he would have a bit more time to do some real damage, and I think james w has shown more go forward than any other prop in the friendlies so far, and deserves a place over keegan who still doesn't run his weight. Faal hasn't done too badly this time, but it worries me that we haven't signed a quality replacement for him if, as seems very possible, he goes on extended holiday.
