That’s about as a strong a Chiefs team we’ll see in the league. Clearly want to wrap up the top spot this weekend.

I feel strangely confident about this weekend... Maybe a bonus point loss would be a great result

Usually it would be, but it won’t do us any good this time

Give it to Shane!

Seriously, no one is going to beat chiefs in a pick and go game, and for that reason I'm pleased to see 9,10,12,15 as last week. Some smart movement on and off the ball required.

Really keen to see what Deccie has in store.

Clear underdogs, but anything is possible.

A two point gain on Saints & Worcs is the worst result that will leave us with some hope. First tiebreaker is no. of wins. Therefore we'd effectively be 8 & 9 points behind the other two, and therefore needing 2 wins in 2 to stay up.

Putting reality aside, should we get a non-BP win and the others lose by +7 then we'd be 6 & 7 points away from overtaking the others or 5 & 6 if we then won vs Sarries & Bath.

Basically, should we win tomorrow then we stand a good chance of staying up (Win vs Bath & 2 BPs should lift us above both of them. BP win tomorrow and it would be neck and neck (and neck?).

But wuss and saints are playing each other on the final day which means the least one of them would get would be two points if they drew. The final games have made it nearly impossible for us.

Realistically we're unlikely to stay up without 3 wins. Possible, but would take the other two teams to stall completely.

Decent enough team though and hope McNally isn't too drained from his game in the week.

I think we have to be ahead of both before the final game. Tough ask but COYI!

Have been honestly been resigned to relegation since the Wasps home game, I just want us to put in a decent performance and go down fighting like a narly Jack Russell dog (no one has told them how little they are, so they'll take on anything)

On the flip side, if we are sub 4 points behind them on the final day, we know that a win would likely do it.

Bath with nothing to play for on the final day shouldn’t be awful, if we do stay up I’d be shocked if it happened due to wind over Sarries and Exeter but not Bath.

All the better, it gives Watson an incentive to have a shocker.
