Lawes doubtful for Aviva, Franks out until new year.
I can't reveal my source/s.


Pity about Lawes really - few less penalties for us I suspect :lol:

Don't think it will make much difference to how they play. They are flying at the moment so we need to just concentrate on ourselves rather than who's in or out for them. Biggar would give them a boost if he plays but we should be too strong for them if we play to our capabilities. Cant wait for this one!!

So looking likely their pack is going to be the same as last week -
Haywood, Painter, Moon, Ratuniyarawa, Wood, Ludlam, Harrison (co-capt).

A bit about the backrow, but not much for us to fear in front five.

Is the other Franks bro injured too?

A 7 man pack ? [WINKING FACE][WINKING FACE] They'd be taking a risk there.

Saints beat Treviso away from home.
That's no mean achievement anymore.
They'll go the distance so we have to make sure that unlike Treviso we're not open to a last minute dg or peno from Biggar.
Biggest danger for us is Sexton's recent penchant for intercepts, Biggar came from a long way out in the Wales game so he was looking for and expecting it.

So do we reckon Larmour will start against Naiyaravoro? Hard to see who can we start to contain him

He did fine against Nadolo so I don't see why not!

Thought he played on the right wing for them? He certainly did against Leicester even though he wore the 11 jersey. They were excellent in that game, really liked how they played regardless of how bad Leicester were, but they often just tried to get the ball to him ASAP at the expense of fixing defenders and threw poor passes. They had far more to their game than that overall, but in unstructured play it was quite obvious.

I'd like ROL on the bench, could be useful to have his tackling ability if Saints end up getting a lot of ball and Lowe takes a battering.

They were good - they have half backs and a back line that are slick and confident with ball in hand.

I profess to being a little nervous about this. Game plan should be simple - starve them of possession - like we did to a
similarly vaunted set of backs (Wasps) a few years back.

6'5", 132 kg and very fast (as compared to Nadolo's 6'5", 137 kg and very fast)...in short, NFL material - indeed, bigger and more explosive than any wide receiver, but just as fast.

Naiyaravoro also counts Billy Vunipola and Manu Tuilagi amongst the long list of players he's run over. Pray for Jordan.

I haven't seen Naiyaravoro but Nadolo is incredibly slow on the turn which can make him somewhat of a liability in defence. Remember how easily Carbery glided past him - 34 seconds in:

If Connor's is playing, Naijaravoro will do well to make it near Larmour.

True, quicker than almost anyone in a straight line despite being 137kg, but a terrible turning gait.

Talk of Maloney being involved, presumably from the bench. Don’t see why unless there is an injury but great chance for him if true.
