Dos Santos was injured in a thumping tackle early on Essex.
I was also surprised it was a strong team, and glad that none of them apart from Dos Santos were injured. 'Arry was obviously giving a run-out to Gomes, Daws and Bale to see how they coped after long lay-offs and therefore give us more defensive options for Saturday. Bale was pretty much the 1st choice LB before he was injured though obviously will have to fight Assou-Ekotto for his place. On last night's performance he deserves a start on Saturday I have to say.
Hoping we can avoid another Premiership team in the next round - though it never does to underestimate any opposition.
Sfer - wish I did work in media, as a footie reporter naturally - would be able to get to many more matches ;-)
you no its a pity dos santos is such a party animal .cos i think if he wasnt he could be the answer to our l sided problem now that luca is out. I think thats y harry doesnt play him cos he doesnt like that.How did bently play kentish?
