Re: Glaws v Bath - A day out at our dear neighbours - Teamsí up

I try to remain positive and hope to be proved wrong, but amazed that in these 4 games we've seemingly not put out our first choice 15 in any single match. Before the competition started I thought they'd try a few combinations in the first two games, then in the Tigers and Glos games we'd have some continuity of selection ready for Bris away. There doesn't seem to be any real overall plan in terms of selection, but hope to be eating humble pie after the team that's put together at Ashton Gate somehow plays with a fluidity I'm really not expecting.

My thoughts precisely. I was impressed by the effort, planning & endeavour that was expressed by quite a few players & others concerning the pre-season. Transferring this onto the pitch was another mater but I thought we would see some clear plan tactically & performance wise. I also expected to see the likely first choice team develop a cohesiveness but that has just not been the case. To some extent that has been messed up by our usual high level of injuries so itís difficult to know what team can be put out against Bristol. I have to say that so far my initial enthusiasm following the Q & A, poopooed by some, has been dampened. So much depends on how we perform against Bristol but I donít see how we can suddenly start looking like a top 6 side.
