Cup overflowing may be, but we have faith in the boys and believe we are capable of beating any side. Let's hope things go well for us in the remaining games. As you say Clalan we are so proud of what they have achieved so far. Whatever, we will be supporting them all the way. CHIEFS! CHIEFS! CHIEFS!
I think we'll have our work cut out getting anything out of Gloucester and the Northampton and Irish games are filed under "anything can happen". I'm starting to dare to look forward to Heineken Cup rugby next season though, fingers crossed.
13 points for me, with wins against Irish Worc and one of Glaws or Saints. LBPs elsewhere. The final game vs Sarries could easily be another win, if Sarries are safe for a top 2 finish, and so rest players. The last game of the season often throws up some surprises.
Glaws v Ex 4-1
Ex v Irish 4-1
Worc v Chiefs 1-4
Chiefs v Saints 4-1
Sarries v Chiefs 4-1
Of the challengers for top 6, Glaws look the biggest threat to the top 4 teams. I think we will do enough to finish above Sale and Irish, and Bath may not have the fight left to stage a late surge, after their LV cup lose, so expect a 6th placed spot for us at worst.
Win against Glaws, and top 4 is still alive, but lose and I think we are looking at top 6 at best. It really is a pivotal game.
EDIT - can't count! That makes 14 points!
Still think 12-14 points is a good target for this last batch of games/

Glaws are a tough nut to crack at Kingsholm but I think our defence will keep us in touching distance and we'll get a lbp.
Irish are at 6's and 7's at the mo, we are strong at home so 4pts for us.
Worcester are struggling to score tries, we have a tight defence so I think this will be close and probably a kicking duel, which we'll win - 4pts more to us.
Saints at home, hmmmm on their day they are a formidable team - this is a tough ask, our 16th man should keep us in there for a lbp.
Sarries away - potentially playing for the honour of finishing 1st, so this could be REALLY hard, especially a week after playing saints. Like worcester they don't rack up big scores but have a very tight defence. close game again, and another lbp.
That's 11 more points from our last 5 games. hopefully its enough for a heineken cup spot!
Well here goes,
Gloss v Exe 4-1
Exe v LI 4-0
Wuss v Exe 1-4
Exe v Saints 4-1
Sarries v Exe 4-1
So 14 points which would mean we finish on 59pts and I think we will end up in 5th place, this prediction stuff is easy.
