I am quite happy already. Anything better than a top 6 finish will be fantastic.

Top Six has now become my minimum expectation. As the bloke who led the pitch invasion at the Stoop when we won the league title so many years ago, I have dreams of doing the same again. Mind, I might be a tad slower this time.

Just happy not to be getting relegated. Everything else is a bonus with no expectancy

And we are mathematically safe already. We are on 50, Irish are on 15. 5 games to go equal equals maximum points gain for Irish of 25/

We've won one fewer games than Exeter, so far. That'll do me!

I would've been happy with 6th, before, but since we've outdone ourselves I'd be a tad disappointed not to get in amongst the big boys. We've won away at grounds we expected only losing bonus points.

We have 5 games to go of which 3 are at home and 2 away both of which we can realistically win, although Leicester might seem like a tall order, but not impossible. It's getting tight at the top.
I cant see why we can't be amongst the top 4. I'm sure the players are thinking about it, and I say let's go for it.

Our defence is hugely impressive and this is the difference is the main difference for me this season. For that reason I can see us going to Leicester and giving them a good game. Anything can happen now and crucially it's in our hands.

After this season we must finish in the top 6 as a minimum and get that auto champions cup place otherwise it would be a failure considering the season so far
