Wow, that definitely a glass overflowing prediction, I agree but think we will get the Losing BP at Glaws.
Like you I love this club and am proud of what the boys have done in such a short period.

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.

This is what Whaley Shark thinks will happen:

Glaws v Chiefs 4-1
Chiefs v Irish 4-0
Warriors v Chiefs 4-1
Chiefs v Saints 1-4
Sarries v Chiefs 5-0

That's just 7 points from 5 games! but he has only gone for 8 points for Sharks over the same period. He does think we'll end up at 6th with 52 points.

What are your predicted points match by match?

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!(Sm154)

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!

If we can start against Gloss like we did against Sale and not like we did at Kingsholm last season we could be in with a real chance but I don't like trying to predict games cos I'm no good at it!

Ever the optomist I think GLaws are strong at home at present but we got a score to settle and I'd not be surprised if we get 4 there, however my practical head says 1.

I think we'll break the monkey's back against Irish and take 4

Wus could be a banana , but I'm going for 4 again.

Do you know now my glass is overflowing , I think we could be fighting Saints for a playoff place against the odds again, so 4

Sarries, well heart says 1 but I fear the worst here 0

Away to Gloucester - Loosing bonus point!
And it is cruicial to get a lbp & stop them from getting 5 points to keep them below us.

At home to Irish - 5 point win.
I have a feeling we could come good again for this one.

Away to Worcester - 2 points from a draw.

At home to Saints - 4 points from a win.
We beat them at home last year ?

Away to Saracens - 0
I honestly think we will struggle to get anything from this game.

So, 12 points from 5 games...that will be a fantastic performance by anyones standards.



Be sure to treat every day on this earth as if it were your last...one day you will be right. (Jethro)

Glaws v Exe 4-1
Exe v Irish 4-1
Worc v Exe 1-4
Exe v Saints 2-2
Sarries v Exe 4-1

Kingsholm is still a very tough place to go and get a result. An LBP would be a good result against Glaw.

Irish have had such an indifferent season and there is talk among their fans of dressing room issues between coach and some players.

Wuss are strong defensively, but a Sale-like performance from us should blow them away even away from home.

Saints could go either way for me, so am predicting a draw.

Sarries, even with injuries (notably Burger and Brown), I expect to be just too strong.

All-in-all, that's 12 table points

thumbs down

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.

Mind you - I am known as a pessimist so I could be wrong about the Sarries result.
