Bath were so poor. At home and didnít fire a shot- no ideas at all in the opposition 22. After being groomed for the DoR role, I canít see Mr Hooper lasting long. Also, weíre so lucky that Priestland didnít come to us.

Absolutely this!!
I said, after the opener, that I always breathe a slight sigh of relief when he starts against us.

While itís entertaining to watch, they seemed to be doomed to years of mediocrity under the significantly over-inflated ego of Bruce Craig.

As a former pupil of St. Brendanís, thank god he stayed well away from Bris.

I went to see chiefs v wasps today. Good game with Exeter well on top in the end. Stand out performance from Luke Cowan Dickie up front and Ian Whitten and Tom OFlagherty in the backs. Wasps looked very ordinary in the second half. Big game for us against Wasps on the 27th December who I think could be in trouble.

Interesting. I bet Billy Searle is regretting his decision to move now. I wish him all the best obviously but he was certainly as good as Sheedy when he left.
I've just caught up on Saints v Leicester, Saints were excellent and will be in the top 4 for sure, probably the top 2 this season. Leicester forwards had some serious names in the pack but couldn't win a line-out, Mark Bakewell must be the most overrated forward coach in the business. Our pack improved when he left and Leicester have got no better.

I know itís very early in the league season but after Healyís picks for relegation were us, Worcs, irish ; itís interesting to see a bottom 4 of Sarries (exceptional circumstances) Leics, Quins, Wasps.

Ifs and buts and maybes but that Quins game with us was a let off for them?

I only hope the little gnome doesnít have the last laugh!

The Saints v Leicester game was a fine display of terrible lineout play from both sides but with Leicester miles worse. They drag Youngs off after less than an hour and the new guy was just as bad, including one howler when he threw in when his own side hadn't properly formed the lineout and weren't ready. Saints scored, what, three tries off Leicester lineouts? Shocking play. They really do need Borthwick.

Lineout stats:

Northampton won 8 out of 9 (88%), so lost 1 lineout.

Leicester won 14 out of 21 (66%)

But don't let the facts get in way of a good story.

And also in the modern game 66% return form 21 line outs is a platform for defeat.

Harlequins 23 Gloucester 19

The updated league, after 5 rounds, puts us in second place, 2 points behind Northampton and 2 ahead of Exeter.
