Re: Saturday vs Bristol

Bit of a brutal first five minutes. It's an 80 minute game (probably nearer ninety with the injuries and Blanchet looked in a lot of pain).

With 38 points Blues would have won any of the other Saturday games. It shows supporters have a lot to look forward to in the rest of the season. Despite our frailty in the second half in previous games, we lost to Bristol by only 3 points and I didn't notice any drop off in Bristol's intensity.

The squad showed character in not letting heads drop and always, one felt going for the win, or at least the bonus points on offer. Probably deserved a losing bonus as well.

That character will be tested in the response to two defeats on the bounce at Jersey and then Goldington Road.

The worry as mentioned elsewhere is the attrition rate and keeping bodies on the field.

If we can do that, I for one look forward to the rest of the season.
