  1. Elliot Yeo – Test. Surely the SuperCoach gods who have decimated us with so much pain this year will throw us a fricken’ bone!


  2. WCE: Scans last night revealed a minor hamstring strain for Luke Shuey, to miss 2-3 weeks.

    Barrass, McGovern and Yeo all a test for this weekend.


  3. Bont any doubt? Read on another forum he might have a minor foot injury? Not sure how dependable it was
