A week or two ago I facetiously suggested that one day someone would right a book about the last 15 (?) years at Sixways. The problem is of course that no writer would be able to get the real inside story but I doubt that there is one underlying reason why things just haven't worked out as we would all like.

It will be a combination of circumstances, personalities, availability and non-availability of funds and on occasion just luck - good or bad.

But any discussion about Worcester always comes back to Exeter. Why has Exeter been so successful when Worcester hasn't been? Why can't we be more like them?

I think that that is the wrong comparison to make. We should compare ourselves to the other "bottom feeder" clubs of recent seasons: London Irish, London Welsh, Rotherham, Leeds, Bristol, Newcastle. How has Worcester fared against those clubs? Against that yardstick not too bad really. Newcastle seem after many years hard work to be going very much in the right direction and Bristol are frightening everybody with the size of their cheque book but other than that?
