If Stade Loose another game then they're out of the running for a QF spot, which would mean a 2nd/3rd team will be out when Embra play them next year.

I think its very important that we rack points up against both LI & Krasny to get 10 more points, kill the group off before we play Stade who will have hopefully lost interest by the time we play them, by gaining maximum points in every game would go along way of making us top seeds for the QF`s and a home tie .

He could have stayed one more week with the 7s. It could have helped Dalziel and we could have wait one more week.
Poor Bryce, I think he's done everything all right this year, but he ends as an emergency call-up for the 7s...

What fringe players or academy guy do you expect or wish to see against Krasny Yar ?
I would like to see Hunter-Hill (alongside Carmichael), Miller (at 6 with BRadbury at 8) and George Taylor (with Dean).

Hunter-Hill and Miller aren't in the squad, so can't be picked. Don't know what the rules around academy players are though, so Taylor might potentially be available, but if that's the case I don't know why we went to the effort of registering Shiel and Crosbie. So maybe he can only be used as injury cover.

Where is that squad ? I can't find it. :?
Edit: I looked on EPCR site, and there are no Hunter-Hill nor Miller.
So we shouldn't see many surprises next week... Maybe Shiel at 9, Bresler-Carmichael and maybe Bennett...

Suspect Kennedy will start at 9 next week. I wouldn't expect any of the starting 15 against Glasgow to start next week; Cockers will know the side he wants to play against Glasgow, and we have a strong enough squad to take on Krazny without risking them.
