Balshaw, Sackey, Tindall, Flood, Strettle, Wilkinson, Gomarsall, Sheridan, Regan, Vickery, Shaw, Borthwick, Haskell, Moody, Narraway.
Subs: Mears, Stevens, Kay, Rees, Wigglesworth, Cipriani, Vainikolo.
Mathew Tait is not even in the 22, despite being our most exciting back; Mark Regan starts at hooker despite being so old he can’t see straight, let alone throw straight; Simon Shaw has obviously made a miraculous recovery; Luke Narraway will make his debut at Number 8.
Otherwise it’s pretty much as expected, with Lesley Vainikolo likely to be capped just so he can’t play for Tonga!
