Good stuff ff07. However, I disagree with you above in saying we have nothing to lose.
We have everything to lose, and I know we're the away team, but Harlequins are there for the taking.

If we're serious about get-crushing the top 6 then we should be going to the stoop with the intention of winning.

It's not disrespecting Harlequins, but in saying that I honestly think that this is one of the weakest Harlequins teams we're ever likely to face. I don't think they are strong as a unit.
I hope we'll be going to the stoop with our strongest team and hopefully to get 4 points.
The psychology any win gives will stand us in good stead for the games against Gloucester and Leicester.

We can't afford to take the foot off the pedal especially with losing two in a row already.We need any sort of momentum we can get. If it means winning ugly, so be it. .

Thank you lizard! Really appreciate it.

Oh aye, I agree on the fact that these 5 games are massive for us and as competitive pro athletes, I'm sure these guys would want nothing more than to come away from a place like the stoop with 4 points. But for me, it seems a big ask considering the side Quins will have out.

I completely agree on the fact that it is the weakest Quins side that we will face, if they don't get into the champions cup this season I reckon Kingston will be in trouble... but we will have to see how they turn up first... they haven't been together for some time so the main thing for them is that they gel back together too put in a good performance against us...we shall see how they perform come Saturday... really tough place but we've had them close in recent years down there so we shall see.

Yep, three on the bounce going into a huge game with glos wouldn't be good, and if we lost to them then that would be 7th place about gone imo. Huge couple of weeks ahead...
