Possibly too strong.
in my opinion should have started more of the bench and either rested or benched some of our stronger players. Big risk to our back to back H cup games v Gloucester if any of front 5 pick an injury. I realise squad is stretched but some of the less experienced squad should still be capable of seeing off the Kings.

Agree but it might be a sign our covering 2nd Row is coming...

Glad to get the win, never mind the bonus. We always seem to underperform against teams we're strong favourites to beat, have done it against Zebre so many times.

That said, don't think Whitehouse helps matters.. I had such great hopes for him when he first started showing up as a ref but I've really lost all confidence when I see him due to ref. He was blowing for some ridiculously harsh rolling away calls and letting other blatant ones go, same for maul and lineout.
