Out of interest has anyone seen Hassell-Collins have a good game apart from against us? Now I generally only watch the the highlights of a lot of games not involving Glaws and live on BT sport but I can't think of too many that spring to mind.
As for Meehan I thought his box kicking (to the gameplan?) was much improved last week however his service when not kicking could be better.
Also I like Carreras a lot but for me when fit Woodward is our first choice #15.

H-C seems to be lauded by every pundit when his name crops up, so I assume he isn't playing that badly.

From the LI website:-

"Hassell-Collins has been proving himself in the senior squad ever since, scoring 13 tries in 32 appearances at the conclusion of the 2019/20 season, including an incredible four tries against Gloucester in February 2020.

Ollie received recognition for his performances by being named in Eddie Jones' training squad ahead of the 2021 summer internationals."

So he is still behind an awful lot of English wingers and somewhat on a par with Thorley?

Just in from work and catching up with this...

Very good starting 15 but hope Val keeps his discipline.

Bench is a bit rotational which I totally get. It's important to keep an allocation of younger players/"home grown talent" involved in match day squads. I think the have a dig-at BTT crew on SW need to remember the many excellent matches he's had for us over the years. I wouldn't write him off just yet.

Believe Woodward is unwell (not covid) and isn’t injured.
