To me it's the no brainer option. I just hope they've allowed Johns to train with the team during the week.

Apparently Munster has spent the week training at fullback. So by extension, we have to assume wishart and john's have been training at 5/8

Coates in on the wing to start
Munny on fullback duties
Johns at 5/8

Wishart on the bench

The preferred Line up imo

My preference is our centres just pass all night,

Wetter than a fishes arsehold so should be a sloppy contest. Just get thru healthy please.

I hope by extension you're wrong and only Johns has trained in the halves. I'm not sure where Wishart's ideal position, definitely bench utility, probably hooker only. Grant can go to the halves but we miss too much at hooker. Is B Smith back for this game? If so, Wishart is probably surplus and an outside back comes on to the bench. Maybe a switcheroo and Coates makes a surprise return (hopefully not too early), Young T to the bench as the back up outside back and adds some go forwards grunt.

Personally, I would've gone for MacDonald on the bench instead of Eisenhuth - as others have mentioned, Eisenhuth hasn't really impressed me since returning to the side.

Welcome back X.

We are going to have to score a lot of tries tonight, Munster's kicking doesn't fill me with any great confidence.

This side looks a whole lot better with a healthy Coates, Nofo I have high hopes for.

Add back a healthy Meaney, Olam and Tepai and the side can look dangerous again

Loiero would be great as well

I take it back. Gobsmacked Smith isn't in the bin.

Copy that.
Storm stop the scrum clock which stops the game clock and the ref allows Tits to wind the game clock down anyway.

Rapt for Noafoluma. He looks like he’s right at home. What a great fit for our club.
