v Dragons Friday 15th Feb 7:35pm

So, who will we see back from the Scotland camp for this?

It’s vital that we win and win well. I’d like to think we’ll get Cherry, Crosbie and maybe Toolis back from the forwards and Graham and Pyrgos from the backs

That sounds likely to me too, a 5 point game is a must and if possible keep their score minimal to give a points balance just in case it’s tight at season end, it’ll be strange to back at MF and just a small crowd.

Is anybody due back off the sick list?

Bradbury must be close. Who knows with Carmichael, Scott and Hamilton.

Should be pretty close to a recent 1st choice backline with only Kinghorn missing.

Sutherland should be back and I would think Hamilton and Bradbury. Heard Carmichael had an ACL so will be a longer term absentee if that's correct. Getting Matt back would be gold dust with the Quarter Final looming large.
Bill Mata. The second coming?

Don't think we'll see Toolis. Maybe something like

Schoeman, Cherry, Ceccarelli, MacKenzie, Hunter-Hill, Bradbury, Mata, Crosbie
Pyrgos, VdW, VdM, Dean, Johnstone, Graham, Fife
Sutherland, Ford, McCallum, Hodgson, Miller, Shiel, Scott, Brown
Don't mention Rory Hutton. I did once but I think I got away with it.

Would be happy with that squad.

If as Wottie says Carmichael has an ACL injury that is possible "good news" rather than it still being concussion from pre-season

With Wilson being injured, I wonder if Toonie will let Crosbie out of his sight?

Yeah, he's not one of Toonies guys so if he can get an excuse to play Harley instead, he'll go for it.

Would need Hickey on the bench surely?
If fit Hamilton before Miller clearly.

Anyone know what the ground set up is likely to be on Friday? Pitchside standing available or not? Which bars will be open etc?

As usual, I would expect. Next home international isn't until 9th March.

Crosbie could do with a run out regardless of Scotland implications.

It could be a big audition for Crosbie, if he plays well he should force his way in.

I just cant see why Townsend put Harley on the bench, Graham was a far better option.
