Obviously you do need a Cecil to succeed in the Premiership. That is what makes that competition (to me) a joke. Why not just sort the teams into order of who's got the most cash, give the richest ones the cup and avoid the need for all the messy rugby in between?

The thing with Leeds this season is that we have produced some very, very good performances. London Welsh away, Bedford away, London Scottish away, the second Cornish away and even Moseley away are all examples. There's a pattern there if you look closely.

But most of the home games have been absolute dross. If a supporter isn't able to travel away all they've seen has been rubbish.

If we could nail exactly why we can play very well away from home, but struggle to string two passes together at home, we might start getting somewhere. Either that or find a millionaire and just buy a team.
