"Nicky's trained and he seems fine. His hamstring just tightened up and Bath wasn't an occasion when you want people playing half cock."
"He trained today while Eliota still has a bit of a stiff knee and Tim Molenaar has a shoulder problem so they're probably doubtful for the weekend."
Quizzed about whether he was planning to make changes anyway for this weekend, regardless of injuries, the Head Coach confirmed that he has confidence in the squad as a whole.
"We have to use the squad. You have to be confident enough in all the players in the squad to make changes where necessary."
"A couple of players went off with bumps and bruises and there's no point in us breaking them now as we'll be heading into Quins and Leicester after this phase of European competition and those are two massive games for us."
"We need a clean bill of health going into those Premiership matches but the squad is strong enough to cope with Agen away and Rovigo at home."
"Whether that's one change or ten changes, I'm not sure. But we have some players who haven't been playing and they need their chance to put their hand up and challenge the boys that have been playing."
"Last weekend's performance was a great credit to the squad and the other boys now want a piece of that. That's the kind of reaction I want."
