  1. We should win, easily, I’m just hoping that there aren’t any injuries. And that we rest a few in the following match against Georgia. We won’t get anywhere playing the same 15 over and over again.

    Use the Subs Eddie.

  2. not bad thing having a healthy points scored/difference though … let’s kill ’em (not literally of course) but 60+ points would be nice

  3. Also, we need to get the first-choice players used to playing as a well-oiled unit before the French match. They will need to get their confidence up in key areas like the line-out, scrum and maul.
