Not expecting a win......somehow having the drop on Saints for a while smacks of comeuppance time for us. In a bizarre way I wish we had Sarries?

I don't like the playoffs as you all know but I shall be surprised if we come out of this smelling of roses.

It's not faith I need Bill.

I can't watch a game waving my little flag, just cheering on. I watch rather quietly, apart from the odd outburst! Maybe I analyse things too much.......I don't know. But the form book to me says Saints and, to be honest they deserve it!

Well............that's one way of looking at it! The other is they finished above us in the league?

Saints deserve nothing they like every other team in the premiership have to earn it something they have thus so far failed to do.

They have not managed to beat us yet and I am confident that this will continue to prevail for the rest of the season too.

The league is irrelevant and has been for a number of years now - Saints helped to vote this system in.

If you want to pick and chose which changes to keep and which to ignore why not go back to tries worth 3 points? How about making all the way back to when there was no league?

I'm pleased Hartley isn't playing because (despite his occasional moments of madness) he is a very good player.....his absence will weaken them.

The forecast is very good with light winds. To win we need to start well, kick our goals and keep our discipline, otherwise Myler will punish us.

It's too close to call really, they are at home but we have the history. The teams on paper are very close.

I will be crossing everything on Friday night!!!

I want to keep the faith, I really do, but i just can't see it.

If we'd been at home maybe, but losing to Harlequins did it for us.

Sorry for being a doom monger but I think this a game too far this season for us. We have done very very well this season though and I am very proud of the team.

We WILL win silverware next season though!
