Predictions for the season

It's getting to that time of the year where the Septic Pegs of rugby journalism predict how they feel clubs will fare over the next year.

Haven't seen too many yet, but I'm guessing the coming days will have a flurry. If I recollect, last season generally had us as one of the bottom two teams in most opinions.

This year the Daily Mail has us improving one place on our actual last season to 7th. It reckons struggles may be had at Glaws and Saints.

Sky Sports have avoided placing anyone, but go with a what's new, what's hot and what's not for each club. The good news is I think they really struggled in the what's not category for us, as the loss of Mouritz Botha was their suggested shortfall.....!!

Again Sky seem to suggest that Glaws and Saints transfers have not improved their squads.

What I'd a septic peg? I suspect it is not complimentary.

I am thinking Top Six. But seventh would be acceptable. It's all a bit of a change isn't it?

How refreshing it is to hear that the pundits are predicting a 7th/8th place finish for us after years of being the predicted relegation fodder.

Another sign that times are really starting to change a KP.

Best of luck to the guys for the coming season.....I geniunly believe a top 6 finish is achievable with the squad and depth that we have.

Come on Falcons!!
