Very diplomatic. You sound a bit like Jimmy Carter in the mid-late 70's.Atley and Garner have given the club a lot and if they're both fit, and if it's their last year then they'd both still be best 22 (at the expense of our youth however) and make a win on the weekend more likely than not.
I would personally want to give them both a farewell game as I love the history and fabric of the club and the players that have played for it.
I think the club wants to play Spicer so that would be three changes if so.
In saying that if neither Atley nor Garner get a game then we're clearly dealing with a very different football administration than we have in the past and that cannot be seen as a bad thing.
