Bath v Saracens
The Bath team that will play Saracens at 2.00pm on Saturday 19 December at
the Rec is:

15 Matt Perry FULL BACK
14 Iain Balshaw RIGHT WING
13 Kevin Maggs CENTRE
12 Jeremy Guscott CENTRE
11 Adedayo Adebayo LEFT WING
10 Mike Catt FLY HALF
9 Andy Nicol SCRUM HALF
1 Dave Hilton PROP
2 Andy Long ***
3 Victor Ubogu PROP
4 Steve Borthwick LOCK
5 Nigel Redman LOCK
6 Russell Earnshaw FLANKER
7 Eric Peters FLANKER
8 Dan Lyle NO 8
Repls: Steve Hatley; Lee Mears; John Mallett; Jon Callard; Mike Tindall; Ben
Sturnham; Nathan Thomas

At last Robo sees sense and starts with Nicol.  Borthwick deserves his
chance.  Balshaw is prefered to Evans on the wing.   A vital game for both
sides if they are to maintain any sort of a challenge.

Regards
Simon

Sturnham has been playing in the second row with limited success.  Expect
him to feature on saturday but Peters has not let anyone down recently.

Injured and out until April.  A major blow.  Preston gave Robbo lots of
options ,the most attractive being to play Catt in the centre where he plays
his best Rugby . Baths injury jinx seems to know no end.

Apologies for the subject header.  Result of a long day.

Why is Peters playing openside?  Sturnham looked the goods down here at the
start of the year.

And where is Preston.  Is he injured on deemed not good enough.  Shit, I'd have
him there in front of Catt.

Russell Earnshaw is playing openside. Bath traditionally (like South
Africa) has the opensider wearing the number 6. Peters is no7 at
blindside. Sturnham has been playing mostly at lock, but I too
question why he isn't starting at blindside, if not lock instead of
Borthwick or Ollie Redman.

Preston unfortunately ruptured his achilles tendon (another Kiwi
halfback doing it) in his first game out for the 1sts about a month
ago, and is out for another 4-5 months. Catt has been playing well
recently, though (see the South African match).
