The match at their place in Feb is building to be our biggest match of the season.

Sounded like ET started hard and fast today and got the bonus point and win wrapped up early. According to a friend who works at Richmond, they gifted a couple of tries to ET with sloppy play but ET were clinical. However, Richmond nilled then 2nd half and scored 19 unanswered points - could be they took the foot off the gas or Richmond upped their game and cut out the silly mistakes from the first half. I’m not overly worried about ET - will be a tough old game but we’re a different beast and will have more than enough for them on their plastic pitch.
C’mon Bris!!

ET are doing us a huge favour to be honest. Without them on our tails it would be too easy to relax and take things easy. I hope they keep going and push us all the way.

I know some of you get irritated by such statistics but the championship local derby in the capital yesterday attracted a crowd of .......405 , to put that in some sort of perspective Mose v Coventry had over 2000 .Like portisteve I find Ealing annoying and I really cant see the point of them .
Also in TRP today there is an interesting article on Chris Vui .

I'm not so much irritated by ET as concerned at a club being pumped up when there is very little tangible support coming through the turnstiles - ala London Welsh.

When you consider that barring a miracle London Irish will be relegated this season plus their London Irish’s move to Brentford one has to question the longevity of Ealing Trailfinders. I believe they ET are doing brilliantly but how long will their sugar daddy continue to subsidise them with such low crowds? At least at Bristol we have a decent support base. It does make me wonder what London Irish’s long term future holds.

Can't fault any club for having aspirations, nor for playing good rugby (which ealing are). I find their boss' comments regarding ring fencing strange. They should be far less concerned about that, and far more concerned at their lack of support. Without their crowds increasing ten fold, a season in the AP would likely see an end to them. Anyone with a basic grasp of business knows that growing too quick is worse than not growing at all.

Ealing are at Bedford in a week’s time. That’ll be an interesting one
