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.

I understand what you're saying, but I don't agree with all of it.

I'm happier that we finished 6th than I would be if we'd played better and finished 7th. Others may not be. Ultimately what brings the season's result is how we play over 22 games; we can have a few poor performances (every team does), but simply seeing who's behind us now is irrelevant. This season has thrown up some bizarre results. Look at who's beaten who and there really is very little logic there. We beat Wasps a few weeks ago and they trounced us yesterday.

Hypothetically speaking, what if we now have three or four good wins in the league? We could still implode and tumble down the table.

I get where you're coming from, but we're different - the league is decided over a season and I believe you have to play everyone twice to see how you've improved. Remember, there were some calling for a new DOR before the season started!

But I do respect your stance on this. I just don't entirely agree with you.

I also see your view and respectfully disagree. Good debate.
