As I just posted on a separate thread:
"For some perspective, the Roadmap (which I think is a useful tool) has us needing 21 points after GW 10 to finish 6th.

At present, we have 20 points so even if we only get 1 point from our next 3 (Exeter, Bath, Sarries), that would still leave us on track for Top 6 - at least as far as the Roadmap is concerned".

So, on the basis that the Roadmap takes into account who we have / haven't played, it is by no means a disaster

I’d be interested to see how that all matches up if the next four games do go badly.

If we do only get 1 point from the next four games, sounds like the roadmap would have us as being on course, but looking at the table and the fixtures we could well then be in 10th and likely no higher than 8th.

Does the roadmap envisage a glorious end of season fightback, or are there just more teams taking points off each other this season meaning a bad run can really leave you off the pace.

The roadmap just looks at historically how we have done against those teams based a little bit on their recent finishing position. This year we have a tough middle of the season but a comparatively easy run in when you look at what we have had the last few seasons.

Cheers.

I just find it hard to understand a situation where we may be in 8th-10th half-way through the season and still be 'on course' for a top 6 finish.

Ignoring the roadmap though, I suppose we are all just hoping that even if we are as far down as 10th at the half-way point, then with injured players coming back we'll have a fairly strong squad going into the six-nations period (even though we'll lose a few as well).
