So where do you predict we'll finish, QK?

My prediction is 5th or 6th. What's your prediction?

Given we're 7th, Wasps are below us and the fact we still have to play most of the teams above us in the first half of fixtures, I'd say we'll finish 8th. Given we're out of Europe already, this would be dreadful.

So you're basically saying we'll improve on our current form and achieve the same as last season? Not much logic to back that up and not particularly aspirational.

If we finish 5th, that's an improvement. People on here complain that we don't improve; last season we did, and people still complain. But none of us know until we've played all 22 games, exactly where we'll finish. We could get relegated, we could finish first, but I doubt either will happen.

It could also be argued that people looking to sack the DOR after every defeat isn't particularly aspirational.

There is no logic to say we'll improve. Yes, we went from 7th to 6th, but the standard of rugby did not improve at all. That's of greater concern than anything as that's what ultimately brings results. Given that 2 of the teams above us were behind us and look really strong, it's hard to see how we'll finish 5th (or even 6th).

I'm happy to see how things progress over the next month or so, but this nonsensical 'you can only judge at the end of the season' view is a recipe for disaster.
