Top 4 and the maths !

Iím trying to get my head around the maths with Tigers having lost today and with them and Falcons still to play so one of them canít get the maximum 10 points on offer

Does a 5 point win against Saints give us Top 4 ? Or do we need minimum 6 points from the 2 remaining games ?

1 more 5 point win removes Sale from the equation nomatter their results

If Newks beat Tigers 1 win will take them out of the equation

A 5 point win takes Glos out of the equation even if they win their last two games with BP wins, unless they turn around a current 124 point deficit, as wins and BPs would be equal.

If these occur then it will between us and Newks for who plays Ex or Sarries (although I base that on Sarries and Ex winning their last 3 games of the season).

If we get 5 points and Tigers beat Newks, yet Newks get 2 points, then we have to get at least a point from the Newks game, as if we finish level on points with them, a win agaist us would put them above us with a better number of wins with 14 for them and 13 for us. And potentially out of the top 4 if Tigers beat Sale at the AJ Bell!

All to play for...yet at least we have the destiny in our own hands!

Well I followed that as far as "1 more 5 point win". But I have had a few beers.

It is simple - aim to win all remaining games with a try bonus point.
