Irish will be competitive next year.....

I am not so sure. Being in the Championship for a whole season and having had a dire season before that they will be hopelessly out of familiarity with the Premiership standard & speed of game. I wouldn't be surprised if they started the season off with a long run of losses including a sound tonking or two along the way. It certainly won't be an easy season for them, and understanding that from the outset (unlike Bristol for example) will be half the battle. Just cast your minds back to how we struggled first season back up, and what state the players were in after 60 minutes never mind 80.

Though ironically it'll probably end up being really close!

Bristol will absolutely walk it. I wouldn't be surprised if Pat Lam makes a 100% win in all competitions an absolute minimum acceptable standard, and with the squad he has to start with having had a taste of what they have to aspire to, I would expect them to achieve it too.
