Telfs , spot on.
That said, if we are being brutally honest , where do we actually expect (rather than aspire) see ourselves being in the premiership? Given our Budget, crowd attendance , infrastructure and geographical as well as demographical location, do we expect/deserve to be in a top 4 play off spot? Top 6?
We got dumped out of the premiership unceremoniously with a squad that has been dismantled with some of our best players applying their trade elsewhere this season .
Itís fair to say our team for next year will have few similarities to the one we are fielding this year but the brief to Deano was presumably simple at the start of the season and with 8 from 8 in the Championship with bonus points along the way , that must put us on track.
Yes I would love to see us fielding world class players but that realistically isnít going to happen. I would love to be watching us annihilate Championship teams 100-0 whilst playing top class premiership rugby this season but that is equally unrealistic . Iím frustrated with us getting the simple things wrong but impressed with our fortitude in grinding out results and getting the chance to see youngsters pull on the black shirt and prove their worth .
Whilst many are downbeat , I am enjoying seeing our team on a winning run and looking forward to the uncertainty and rollercoaster of life back in the premiership:-)
