I have us in 4th again. People always look at new signings and such like but you can't underestimate a group that's growing together. Provided our key players remain fit we should be in the mix. Need our front row to be better than last season though, and I think we will be with everyone a season stronger. The addition of Mulipola should also help.
And in general...
Premiership Winners: Saracens, again.
Champions Cup Winners: Montpellier
Challenge Cup Winners: Stad Francais

Finishing league position 6th - 8th (despite ambitions to concentrate on the league I reckon the temptation to play strong teams in the Euro cup will weaken our Premiership performance).
European Stage - 4th in group
Signing most keen to see - Mulipola
One to watch - Radwan (been a long time coming)
Game most looking forward to - Edinburgh away.

Prem winners - Sarries
No idea about Euro cup winners
Prem Cup winners - Exeter

We punched above our weight last term, so I'm guessing 8th. Europe will be tough and I could see us fourth in our group. Most seasons there's a team that bombs and some seasons a team that surprises (us last time out). I have a feeling Sale might surprise a few teams and finish comfortably top half.

It's always flattering to be tipped for Silverware but sadly the prediction for a Gloucester Challenge Cup win this season, won't happen in a million years. I'm not being pessimistic, it's just that we are in the Champions Cup.Thanks anyway.(Sm128)[:wor kid:]

Clubs like Sale have thrown money around but i would rather have a solid, hard working group of blokes than some of the characters they have brought in and already have around the club. I don't wish ill of Sale but i fear thay Diamond isn't taking the holistic, culture led approach that wor Deano is! COME ON THE FALCONS!

Mulipola will be tremendous fun to watch!

That will be quite an achievement as they are not in that competition this season.

Don't set your sights too low NorfolkFalcon - we've got as much chance of winning the Challenge Cup as Gloucester have!

A pretty rough prediction in this preview here ! Can't see Falcons slipping far from where they ended up personally.
