Twelve years to the Prem

Part 2

Tony Rowe commented that it has taken 12 years of trying to get to the Premiership, which set me thinking about how many players had been involved during that time.  Of course there are many ex-players from before this time who are still involved with the club but these lists only cover tose who played in each season.  With help from Statbunker I have compiled details of those who played in each of those twelve years (ranked on match appearances).  There's a link to the Statbunker site for each player just click their name in the lists. Those in bold are part of the 09/10 Championship winning squad, the list of those who played in this is:-

Tom Hayes  Richard Baxter  Matthew Jess   Mark Foster Brett Sturgess  
Phil Dollman  Gareth Steenson  Chad Slade  Neil Clark  James Hanks  
Hayden Thomas  James Scayesbrook  Chris Budgen  Matt Cornwell  
Hoani Tui  Paul McKenzie  Emyr Lewis  Chris Bentley  Clive Stuart-Smith
Andy Miller Bryan Rennie  Simon Alcott  Tom, Johnson  Sean Marsden   Nicolas Sestaret  Danny Gray  Sean Tomes  Ruaidhri Murphy  Josh Matavasi  Steve J Jones  Ben Moon  Thomas Bedford  Alan Miller   Saul Nelson     
Sam Blythe  Richard Bolt  Jamie Fleming  Drew Locke  Dave Gannon     

It has to be noted that many others played their part in preparing the players to compete so effectively.

Compiling this has brought back many memories for me and I hope it does for you.  Here's the next three years, 2000 -2003.

Season 00/01 - 3rd place with 71 points but some distance behind Worcester on 112 and league winners Leeds on 116.  Top points scorer John Hill with 131 closely followed by Sam Howard with 125.  Most tries 8 by To'o Vaega and Martin Ridley.

Interesting to see the steady improvement made during these three seasons, closing the gap on the leaders from 45 points to 12.
