Who knows how we may have done (so no smugness at all) and how much that score reflects the game but as Harlequins seem destined for a relegation battle this season I thought it was one to highlight. Seems Quins missing many of their internationals but Glasgow have many more.

Wasps were well beaten by Connacht too. No idea about the relative quality of the teams.

Perhaps a glimmer of hope is that the premiership isn't as strong as we think it is right now?

Really donít think that one can read too much into pre-season results.
After all, we just lost to a Scarlets side missing all of itís Welsh internationals...

Edit: my mistake; Rob Evans & Jake Ball were playing for Scarlets.

Wasps had a second string out with Billy Seattle at 10. Very few big names were on the team sheet so little surprise that they got humped. Quins has a decent side out so thatís pretty surprising

If we exclude us for the moment (as we are a bit unknown for now) then yes, although the other 11 teams ((perhaps excluding Sarries and Exe) are fairly close to each other compared to seasons gone by, the Euro matches last year suggested that generally the Prem (again excl. Sarries and Exe) are not where people perhaps thought they were comparatively.

I agree with all thatís been said, the Prem has definitely been overtaken by the other leagues, hopefully we can benefit.
Quins are an interesting one. You canít argue with Gustardís record but thatís in defence and not as a head coach. Itís such a massive shift from Nick Easterís leaky defence last year to Gustardís wolf pack/ bear pack defence that they may get worse before they get better. Hopefully we can benefit from this and get a few wins early doors.
Of the pre-season results so far, Newcastle are the stand-outs, any thoughts that they were a one season wonder seem wildly optimistic!

Again with rider about the teams playing etc but Connacht beat Wasps 43-10 . A huge test for us Friday by the looks!

I think the Pirates beat Exeter 29-21 on Friday night as well, but I've no idea what team Exeter put out...

Well they well beat Cardiff that night so presumably around 25 - 30 of their best players were playing Cardiff.
