For me. There's a couple who could feel left out or unlucky, but I would imagine that there will be plenty of opportunities for everyone as we're bound to get injuries and probably a few call ups too. I'm thinking particularly of Chis and Clifford in the back row, Lang in the centres and Smith, but I'm sure there will be enough game time to go round.
I still think we need a decent 9 to back up DC and could do with another 2nd row and possibly a decent hard carrying back rower (although if Bothma stays fit that isn't an issue).

Frankly you can play who you like, if they canít defend properly and tackle the outcome will be the same.

If we can keep 4 of Clifford, Wallace, Baby Chis, Bothma, Luamanu and Robshaw fit, I'd be quite happy to see a bit more rotation. At the moment, though, none of the others have been able to put together a run of games without injury or suspension.

It would be great to see them all playing regularly and giving Robshaw a chance to manage his game time.

For what I imagine we're paying Saili he should be given an extended run at 12 and if that doesn't work then you go down the Land/Tapuai avenue. I am aware Tapuai defending for Bath wasn't great last season but he did start at 12 for the majority of the season and last season.
