Brilliant! As sunny as the day. I think the lorry analysis is great. Stay in there.

Prediction looks a bit optimistic for us though....

Absolutely brilliant. Your one key error however in analysis was to spot the out of position players at centre for saints.this wasn't mentioned by indoor, outdoor or even lorry "experts" at the time as the saints only have a scrum. So don't give up the day job quite yet !

Thanks for a very entertaining and informative read. getting nervous already.

Phew! As that crept up toward 3,000 words, I thought my longest-sportsnetwork-preview-ever record was gone! Gone!

But I'm glad to find it fell shy of 2,800. That's the type coming up short when it matters which defines Northampton Saints!

Entertaining, comprehensive, and the best preview I've read in a long time. Spasibo.

However, when you found out that Northampton were playing a multiple-time champion team with no props and a stadium with only one toilet, you chose to write about the wrong match this Saturday!

Vpered VVA-Podmoskovye! (Where I'm sure Vas will be, if only to resume his second life as the planet's leading English-Russian rugby translator...)

Damned good preview Dorset! Most entertaining.

I pertickularly liked, "Bath, who are currently in the 14th year of their transitional phase,"



This is our time Saints.

Enjoy them all but this one made me chuckle, and helped to pass some of the time convalescing from hip surgery, so doubly welcome.

Many thanks.
