Need to focus on the league now - Europe’s gone. Whoever’s currently fit and deemed first choice I’d rest, Balmain, Hohneck and Cipriani especially.

Main issue is as someone else posted it depends who we have registered to play in this competition. We may have to field players we would otherwise would have preferred to rest

Maximum rest and rotation should be the order of the day IMHO for the Castres game.

Two ways of looking at it for me. Rest is probably the wisest move, but I’m not sure we have enough available/registered to make many changes. I also really think (as tough as it is) we just need a win to arrest the slide, so have a go!

I couldn’t care less that we have nothing to play for. It’ll be my first ever away game following Glos and whatever team they put out will have my fullest support. As someone said earlier; rugby, wine and cheese in France. I can’t think of a better way to spend a long weekend

In a way it’ll be nice being out in Castres without the pressure and expectation.

Have a great time all.
