I do love a happy Shedweb after a good away win talking about the 'positive' problem of who to pick if/when everyone is fit! :D

And we haven't yet opened the can of worms that is "After that performance, who - if anyone - do you drop to bring Chris Harris back in?".

Whilst BT scored 2 tries Friday and is a legend, I think I'd prefer a MA / CH centre pairing, with BT on the bench. On the other hand, BT is 33, CH will be 31 in Dec and MA 31, so we really need to start playing the youngsters in Premiership matches regularly. Succession planning at centre, is key for me.

As I've said before, who'd want to be a Head Coach? You'd want to play them all.

I like BTT on bench - not so much a game changer - but cover for 10, 12, 13. That's invaluable.

I don’t understand your logic at all. Of course there is succession planning - that’s what LB explained at length months ago and I am sure GS will integrate the youngsters as and when he feels it’s right to do so.

However to say that your favoured pairing (and I suspect most would agree) is two players who are arguably at the very peak of their careers (given one has just had his first international call up and the other is a recent Lion), and in the same breath say we should regularly not play them????? That’s just nonsense to me. :? :?

With Kveseladze and Seabrook on the books I’m pretty sure the club has one eye on that. Atkinson and Harris have plenty of time left and I think if 36 carries on as he has he has at least two seasons.

Our three main centres are 30+ but I have no concerns regarding succession planning. It’s what we are proving really good at under the new regime. And Hillman-Cooper is emerging - a heck of a talent.
