Not many giving Chiefs a chance of a home semi this year (Saracens will comfortably top the league, so its pointless discussing 1st place).

Certainly I think it'll be between Wasps and Chiefs for 2nd spot. Tigers to finish 4th and lose to Sarries in the semi-final (don't worry though, Tigers are in 'transition').

Who will take the drop is an interesting one. It'll be between Worcester and Falcons I think.

Earlier on this year a number of us boldly put our predictions on the forum as to which team would finish where. I have analysed these predictions by comparing each prediction with where the team actually finished. I gave 5 points for an exact match, and 1 point foe being within 1 place of actual. Congratulations Jeremy Anderson, a clear winner and psychic wonder. :smt030

The results are:

Jeremy Anderson 24 points
g 19
cardifftig 16
ads 16
Strawclearer 14
darganj 14
jackflashjohnny 14
kerlmat 12
bigchris 11
kingneptunii 10
Kitch27 9
philb 8
ourla 5
biffer 3
Ellis9 2 :smt022 (I don't think he or she took it seriously)


I must find better ways to use my time!!
I could agree with you...but then we'd both be wrong.

I'm happy with joint 3rd, although I do think the results table should be listed alphabetically...... :smt002

Wasps - if all the big names can gel with the current set up they will be bang there
Leicester
Exeter
Sale - expecting them to have another good season - made some good signings and are a consistent outfit
Northampton - expecting them to struggle again at times
Quins - not sure but they still have plenty of quality on their day
Bristol - expect them to be competitive
Bath - hard to see how they can be expected to be up there given all the upheavel
Worcester - should be OK
Newcastle - will be battling at the basement again
Gloucester - I just have the feeling they will implode - neck firmly out
I got the top 4 pretty much right and Quins/Saints/Bath in that mid-table but got Sale and Bristol badly wrong. The neck out on Gloucester not quite right but they did have a poor season.

Don't really see how anyone can be speculating at this moment in time, we need to wait to see if any more signings, because at the moment a couple of injuries to our centres and we don't really have a 3/4 line!

What's the betting it will be London Irish or Worcester to go down next season?

Deep breath....

Saracens - they will pull out all the stops to get a home semi this time
Wasps - still investing, over the season too much class to not be close to the top
Exeter - the spirit and cohesion is so strong they'll do well again (but teams will be working extra hard to find their weak spots)
Leicester - closer to the top 3 this time, but more class in back row needed to get to the next level
Bath - 5-7 is going to be tight, but Freddie B will edge it over the season for them!
Sale - I think they'd see this as a good season...
Quins - the usual curate's egg is on the menu
Newcastle - plastic advantage will keep them out of danger
Northampton - Picamole-less + moribund coach = even lower morale....a seriously nervy season ahead
Worcester - no idea why (I just can't picture Worcs anywhere else in the table)
London Irish - probably a better squad than Worcs and more spirit than Saints, but will be happy with this in 1st season back Gloucester - have been in a sorry state for some time, and I've just got a feeling that a melt-down is coming at some point
