Just a note of reality..

We chose to rest Harrison, Api and Wood from the pack that beat Clermont

We lost Mitch to injury - Dylan ended the game playing #8

Our bench cover to change lock ended up being Ludlum - we replaced a tired lock with a tired lock.. no wonder the scrum imploded - Sarries brought on Skelton at the same time

We lost Courts pre game and played Ribbans at 6 alongside a very unconventional (talented but different style) Gibson - vs Burger, CC (who needs no introduction) and Maro in his usual England slot

Sarries, conversely - had signed a young but capped Tongan number 8 to cover their one weak spot (money talks) and got him on the pitch for impact with a full pack around him within a week of Billy being out

Props - agree - something has gone wrong, surprised we havenít seen something tried (consultant or different view) as replacing 4 props is ££££s

We beat Glos - that was a big line in the sand for me, we arenít top 3-4 nor can we be for anything more than a one off as we donít have the financial means to keep everyone - but we can be top 5-8
