Note this game is not on TV in Ireland or UK but it is live on terrestrial TV in France.
The online stream is at www.france.tv/france-4/direct.html
To watch it from outside France you will need to use a VPN or similar.
I used Zen VPN recently and the quality was pretty decent. It's a paid service but there is a free trial limited to 24 hours and 1GB or something but it would get you through the match. Pretty straightforward to download and install the client and can be uninstalled afterwards if you don't want it. That was on Windows 10 so not sure what it's like on other OSs but there are other services available (some more reliable than others) so it should be possible to get it going.
If you have a satellite dish that can be repositioned to a different satellite you can probably find the tuning info online to do that either.

Saw this earlier this week, we're very lucky it's televised.

It's one of our key crucial games with Cardiff away, Zebre away :( and Worcester away

Agree to go full-team
Butler straight in if available.
Many can be rested for the much easier returrn game

I'd put Cannon on the bench as you did, and but would probably test the Aki/Ahki pairing, with Farrell 23
(Ahki has been registered for Europe)

Thought Farrell was one of the few to come through the Zebre game with any credit at all, would like to see that rewarded with a start and Akhi (who looks like he's carrying some timber to me, looks lighter in the youtube videos) on the bench.

Edit: for me the big one is McCartney in, we need that stability in the pack.

Farrell needs a rest. That wasn't a punishment at all, on the contrary.
I admit I'd like to see Aki/Ahki too, will be destructive

Same 4 for the back row as last week: Connolly, Dawai, Masterson, Muldoon. Given that was the weakest line in the team (and there was stiff competition) that's not great.

They've said Peter Robb is available for selection this week, but he's ineligible for European fixtures as he's not in the 41 man squad, I suppose they must just mean he can play for the Eagles.

He needs a few games under his belt before he gets a run with the first team. After 11 months he will be rusty.
I was going to say he might be bulked up a bit but I dontthinkthat is possible.

Tranier is their TH, sign him ASAP he comes to the Sportsground if Carey leaves!

I saw their whole game and victory against London Scottish on Sunday, Eagles should struggle a lot...
