Steckers,

I agree, it's sometime now since Ben even played in a game, and would need a good few to even be match fit. Yes, it would be good to see him rampaging about, but he's going to find it difficult and is unlikely to be the panacea to all our problems.

He’s had a lot of time out but because of that I’d imagine he’s raring to go. Its clear that we really miss Jake and I personally don’t think that Ackerman is the greatest carrier at 8. I’d love to see Ben back ASAP, but of course it’s hard to know if he will be able to find his previous form again.

I like this lineup. May have LRZ available too. Quick query, could we field that side with two Argentinians, an Ozzie and a Georgian? Doesnt that fall foul of the two 'foriegners' rule? Or am i missing something? Cheers.


Georgia have a EUAA in place so he should come under Kolpak for the rest of the season at least.

But 2 would still be the limit so we couldn't play the other 3 together by my maths.

I really hope that Ben Morgan gets a “second wind” but I fear his best days may be behind him.

Cheers Jeppy. That was my thinking.

My favoured back row would be Ackerman at 6, Reid at 7 and Morgan at 8 if available. Mister Ludlow can captain from the bench.

I’d personally like to see Freddie Clarke back ASAP, or at least get some news. He was immense in our only prem win so far v Wasps.
