Two points:

1. If you look up Mr Maxwell-Keys on 'tinternet, he has the sort of degree that not many of us would be capable of getting

2. Looking at the way Bristol played this evening, they are looking an improved outfit, and we need to treat them with respect on Friday.

Slightly annoying that they have Yarde, I am pretty surprised he is not in the England team, he started against South Africa and has been replaced on the wing by a centre in Daly.
Two less than full strength teams, I predict a close match.

Bookies have us around 1/3 to win and handicapped at -8.

You can get 3/1 Quins to win the game.
You're either in or you're out

I won't be there :smt010 as Mrs G is still not that well, and we have Brizzle tickets for Friday (and lunch at my aunt's)and want to be 100% for both. :smt004

Has Ward played at 7 for Quins before?
Seems like an area of weakness for us to exploit.

He has. He also plays like a seven when he's at hooker so I doubt he'll need much adapting.

The hysteria of winning for the last two weeks is over and normal service is resumed. I rarely use the 4 letter word but that is dire!

Two average mid table teams, sad to say but we really are clueless in attack, the unforced errors count continues to rise and Burns kicking out of hand is rushed and panicky because he has no options, we so need a quality kicking full back, big ball carrying number 8 and a game plan!!

Poor show thus far. And the ref may be highly qualified, but not as a ref.
