Glaws v Brizz, predictions anyone?
14 September, 2018 16:39
Looks a fascinating game but anyone thinking it could be something other than a comfortable win for Glaws?

If it were with Glaws of last year I would have gone something like 15 - 9 but this year it is a wholly different kettle of kippers

Glaws 31 Brizz 13

And actually a close Brizz win wouldn't surprise me immensely

I have a £5 on Brizz at 8-1 just because, but I would imagine Gloucs will stuff them.

I also have a fiver on Sale to beat Exe at 10-1 at S.P. Pretty sure I won't see that £10 back!

You stand a better chance over the Glaws v Bristol game but not a hope at Sandy Park. I wish you well

Suspect you are right BoB but odd things do happen once in a while.

As an aside Leinster were 100-1 on to win this weekend. Even I didn't fancy backing Dragons over in Dublin.

Bris playing a disruptive game like they did against us. Gloucester can’t get on their game.

And Foley has bottled the cards - final warning, another penalty under the posts so he gives another warning - weak, weak reffing, just like when Bris played us....

I think the decision to play Bristol on the wide Twickenham pitch for the Clash is going to come back and bite us in the @#$%&.

Glos pulling away now and deservedly so with that possession and terratory.

Yes they have taken the ‘throwing the ball around’ too far in this match. Not sure about relegation though.

Cipriani... what a player. Should be starting at 10 for England

They could be pretty knackered & carrying a few injuries by then if they play like this all season!

Bristol got away with a lot against us & seemed to be doing so tonight. Gloucester fully deserve their lead.

Nice finish from Banners in the end.

Not a bad prediction here but for me Banners showed exactly why we miss him but exactly why it was right to let him go

Very slow on the turn in defence for Briz try in first half then some rubbish handling in second half

Sure, if you can negate his strengths....but that applies to all players.
I thought Glaws looked very tough up front and a bit lightweight in threat in the backs and that is with Cipriani pulling the strings.
I think Bristol laid out their game plan and,stuck to it...they'll have to be more pragmatic through the season but think they'll escape relegation...
Early days of course.

Glaws should shortly further bolster their forwards...but I don't see them as a threat out wide.
The gains they have made their have been from outrageous killer passes but that won't happen every game.
I think they are forcing it and at the mo it is coming off.
Cips needs more midfield threat as teams match up on his,attack lines up..
Someone has to break the line to move the defences around and keep them guessing.

From what I've seen of banners and JC I'm ok with the decision. It's not black and white, but overall we've made worse decisions.

Agreed. A sad, but pragmatic decision.

I don’t think it was. Banners has already scored 2 tries for Gloucester & is a real go to player, despite certain failings. He would have continued to add significantly to our efforts this season as there is certainly something missing.

Yes, but in the wider scheme of things, you've got to let players go at some point. It's a balancing act between letting him go too early, too late and missing talent coming in. All things considered, and taking the long term view, I'm really not that unhappy.

IF it hints at wider problems with the club that's far more concerning.

With Roko, Jo Cok and, arguably, Brew, Banners would not be first choice at the moment.

Out of those two, Banners and JC, I know which one I'd be signing.
Bath made the right call, Imo.

On todays evidence being offered JC or retain Banners was a no brainer

JC can be everything and more that Banners wasn't quite

This. Banners was the loved, honoured and beautiful past,. JC4 is the future.



... IMHO, of course.
