While I tend to agree, I do think newly promoted team against local rivals at HQ on first game of the season gives them a little extra push.

Apologies Si. I'm just remembering how we beat Sarries last season, so we must have been the best team in Europe.

It's funny, I see complaints about the "pro-JK" posters (or whatever they're called) but it's not them start the threads that continue arguments made elsewhere. It's more like "start another thread, generate a response, complain about the response repeat ad nauseam". It is a kind of trolling, isn't it?

OK - if we're going to continue COYQ_2017 arguments on yet this thread, I'll shut the other one.

The whole point is there is no logic about comparing other team against team and then basing that result on how we played
It's the constant " Let's find something ( however tenuous) to find fault with club/ manegemnt"
And all the threads descending into JK must go
The only result that counts is the one in which Quins are involved
Think we will get thumped today at the Ricoh, will it be because Visser didn't play, or if JK is coach, who knows, but it won't be down to how London Irish, or Gloucester played this weekend

It's completely subjective. How can you claim that it's factual that consequent results between the same teams are not an indicator of form? If we lose to Irish without a bonus, and then they get utterly humped by two other teams, that's pretty relevant. Of course some there are outliers, and home advantage counts for so much in the AP, but to construct the straw man of comparing our wins against Saracens and Munster is utterly facetious. How can you ever gauge performances if you simply shrug your shoulders and say anyone can beat anyone on their day? Such comparisons certainly don't deserve derision and smugness.

Apart from the fact that we did get a bonus, you were starting to sound like you've actually learned something about rugby.

Actually you weren't. But it's good that you're so keen on being factual.

You do know that there are two ways to win a bonus point? Don't worry, rugby isn't as complex a game as people think. You'll start to pick things up soon. Although judging by your history, maybe not too soon...

And I didn't mention Munster and saracens btw, the results that count are the ones that we can gain points from, in my opinion, but you have your own , fair enough

Not at all si, I admire your eternal optimism. I just don't think there's any need to attack somebody for pointing out the context of our loss against irish, and I certainly don't think there's any need whatsoever for quinks winking smiley

If the game were to end with no further scores Rooney, we would get one bonus point. But after the game I'll explain to you how the points are awarded on the basis of the actual result. Just to save you further confusion and/or embarrassment.

4 points to Quins. 1 to Wasps (bonus point). Neither side get a try-scoring bonus point.

I don't think anyone claimed it was good enough? Just that LI deserved credit for a strong showing - which was widely regarded as being one of a seasoned Premiership side, not a freshly promoted team.

We were poor against Irish, good enough to put glos away last week pretty comfortably but today was as good an away performance from us as I have seen from a Quins side. Gritty, determined and physical. Great to see.

Leicester game is huge now to see if we can kick on from what should be a great confidence boost. The wasps win will mean little if we lose but promising signs. Love how it is all about how Wasps lost and not Quins winning. By far the most impressive result of the first three rounds and get little credit. Fine by me, means we can progress under the radar.

Wasps left a few tries on the field, but I feel we left one or two as well. A Quins win.

Good to see more than a few Wasps fans on their forum acknowledging the win with grace. Good sports.

I agree Bolly. Wasps were clearly a lot poorer than usual, but part of that was down to Quins' abrasiveness, and as fans we could also moan about our team leaving a couple of tries on the pitch.

Saracens have thrashed Northampton who have subsequently beaten Leicester and Bath who beat Saracens who beat Newcastle who beat Sale who beat London Irish who beat Quins who have beaten Wasps as well as Gloucester who beat Exeter who beat Worcester ... all inside the first three weekends.
