I think the one plus (unspoken) is since October we may have lost a few recent prem games but they were all to Tiggers, Sarries (twice) and Quins - you can lose those games and make the top 4 - we got 3 losing bonus points

LV is an irrelevance due to the random qualilfication groups and the Heineken we messed up when Ulster got 5 points here and an LBP at their place - otherwise that group was always going to be super tight and on paper still will be - I would not be 'risking' anyone for those games at this stage

We won the "must wins" (Sale and Welsh) and we have a tricky trip to Exeter on Saturday

The season will come down to 9th Feb onwards - we MUST do a Wasps of old - we should lose very few to England (Woody / Dylan benched and maybe Fodes) - Glos / Wuss / Bath / Irish / Wasps / Tigers (home) / Welsh and Sale before a final game v Quins away..

30 points MINIMUM must come from that - 7 wins and bonus points along the way and we will be up there somewhere

62 points has made the top 4 every season since 2007/8
