Itís all gone a little quiet in here, but with the season about to kick off and the new shirt hanging up ready, what are peopleís points predictions fort this season?
Bonus point frenzy?

Average about 30-odd per game I reckon.

Reckon about 18-20 bonus points and finish with over 100 points in the league.

Hodgson as top individual point scorer.

Being humble can get in the bin for a season.

I'm reserving all predictions until we start the season. If we come out with the same unimaginative slow crash runner then kick tactic of last year, then it'll be a long slog of a season. If we come out and play to the level our players can play at, with fast running rugby and power from the forwards, it'll be a long slog for any team playing us.

As long as we are sitting here in a yearís time preparing for the Premiership having blooded a load of players to get good game time, played good, attacking rugby, have a good percentage of EQP and our DOR hasnít blamed the referee for his or his playerí obvious failings then I donít mind if we win the league by one point.

26 or so games - average 30 pts a game = 780 pts plus cup games

With Irish getting 99pts last season aiming for 100 would be a start, although not sure Ealing will be as strong this season

I think Coventry and Cornish Pirates will give us a good game.
Agree, Ealing may not be as strong this time with the amount of quality they've lost in the past season. 100 minimum expectation here. We're going down with what's essentially a premiership team. There are no excuses. And no dud rugby ala last season please! although a lot of it may have been down to losing Hodgson so early in the season last.

90 points the bar I'd say . Individual matches can be affected by conditions etc

As long as it's at least one more than whoever comes second I'll be happy.

I reckon 100 points if achievable but see us getting closer to 90 as reckon there may be the odd shock result that goes against the flow this season.
Would be nice to have it wrapped up by Feb :-)

To be honest, after last season I'm not bothered how many points we get, as long as I see some good rugby and a promising future

I think you underestimate Ealing at your peril. I'm fairly convinced you don't need to be too concerned about Cov and Pirates though.
