Top 4 / 6

The top 8/9 clubs have reasons to be hopeful, two will be fighting it out for survival & one has to seriously get itís act together. The top 4/6 however is difficult to predict. As for top 4 Sarries will be there & judging by the consistency of their performances I canít see the Champions not making it. Flats is still super confident about Wasps but surely what happened to us after reaching the final could happen to them? We live in hope! That being a possibility would leave two places up for grabs & I can see Falcons, Saints, Tigers & ourselves in with a chance. I will stick my neck out & exclude Falcons as I donít think the brilliance of their attacking play will compensate adequately for defensive frailties. As far as Bath is concerned we have been something of the curateís egg. As much as I applaud those 3 tight fought wins the main qualities in each were defence, line out & Roko. I still want to see much more from Watson & Joseph who havenít shone as they should do. Injuries are well spread amongst our rivals & we are better off than others having survived the tighthead scares so no excuses there. For me we need to inject more fluency & incisiveness into our attacking play to become likely top 4 contenders because bonus points will be key. I am, however, now more confident we will make top 6. Based on what Iíve seen so far & how I think things will pan out I will go for a final top 6 of Exeter, Saracens, Leicester, Wasps, Bath & Northampton/Newcastle in that order but everything is truly up for grabs & with a bit of tweaking we could be at Twickenham.
