Calum Hunter-Hill on the bench for Saracens in the first leg of the English Championship playoff on Sunday.

Matt Gordon starts for Ealing, with Elliot Millar-Mills possibly on the bench (they've named 27 players, I don't know if they're just naming the travelling reserves or if they actually have 12 on the bench).

Live on Premier Sports, apparently.

Has Swinson usually been picked ahead of CHH?

Swinson has been fairly regularly ahead of him has he not?

Cornell Du Preez completes move to Toulon after agreeing release a year early from Worcester.

One of my favourite Edinburgh players, hard as LawrenceBryce, skillful some great offloads and those tap tackles on Jonny May in the Challenge cup were unbelievable.

Agree entirely.I was at The Stoop that night sitting near the 22 and close to where CDP caught May after sprinting about 60 yards across field to catch him! Made the evening despite the defeat. (and it was his first game back wasn't it after about eight months out with that horrific injury?)

Certainly deserves a payday after coming back successfully from some horrific injuries.

Jamie Farndale not in the sevens squad.
Gutted for him ... Strange we released him to pursue the sevens though.

Sounds like the Olympics were a big ambition for him and understandably so when he's had a good 7s career so far.

Another good article from Jamie lyall.

Another tough read about a former player, luckily Cosgrove appears to be through worst.

thanks for posting that link.

Didn't know whether to smash my laptop screen in anger or just cry.

Best wishes to Jack Cosgrove. I hope as an agent he screws that shower of scum from Newport
