P: Bryce, Marfo
H: Cochrane, Fenton, McInally, Turner
L: Bresler, Carmichael, Toolis
BR: du Preez, Hardie, Mata
SH: Fraser, Hidalgo-Clyne
FH: Tovey, Weir
C: Burleigh, Dean, Galbraith, Rasolea
B3: Bryce, Hoyland
Coach: Hodge

One semi-interesting tidbit, Ross Ford is the only hooker in Scotland who isn't OOC at the end of this season.

It's bad that of those players I'm only worried about Toolis and Turner being signed by a bigger side.

Have a sneaking feeling du Preez might be moved to Glasgow, has the kind of ball skills they need and a hell of a player if someone gets him into shape.

as I replied to you earlier "players can be shipped on while still in contract, often without extra expense". You even pinpointed a couple of ways yourself. And there will be break clauses in the longer deals. It has to be done, and the right players shipped out.

I agree, just noting that some (not all) may need to he paid off which will impact budgets. Not all players will have break clauses in their deals and we won't be getting fees for some of those that will need moving on.

Treviso beat Ospreys which might add a bit of retrospective perspective.

It does a little in terms of coldly looking at the result.

But it was the performance rather then the result which was most disappointing. If Treviso had outplayed us and won I can accept that. We beat ourselves (with a little help from Mr Wilkinson)
