I have heard on several occasions TV commentators, about our opposition "that's the best they have played all season", including Quins last week.

Do we bring out the best in other teams, or just make them look good?

Not a criticism, just an observation, and be interested to hear others views.

Quins were very good, definitely one of their better performances.

Just a thought. Could our slump in form be a conditioning issue? Watching the Quins game I thought we looked comfortable in the first half, for the most part we contained them quite easily, even when tackles were missed we had players available to scramble back and slow down the attack. At the beginning of the second half there were a few attacks where we seemed to have really upped the pace, quick ball from the breakdown, putting it through the hands, the sort of fabulous rugby that we played for much of the season and that is so difficult to defend against. Problem was, time and time again we didn't get support to the breakdown quick enough and got turned over with ease. Are we just not fit enough to play at that pace at this point in the season? It's all very well saying we need to up the intensity, perhaps we've not got sufficient reserves in the tank to do it over 80 minutes.

This of course doesn't excuse dropping balls or missing easy tackles but watching players like Hasks who was tearing up trees this time last year, and Young who looked to be the natural successor to Smith at the beginning of the season, they are shadows of their former selves.
