6 Nations Squad and Premiership

Post by rdracup » Fri Jan 20, 2017 11:23 am

All clubs suffer in the 6N period, but some suffer more than others.

We have 4 games in the 6N period, Gloucester, Bristol, Exeter at home and Quins away.

The 6N squads (Wales, France, Scotland, England, Italy) (Ireland dont pick from AP I think) have 50 premiership players amongst them, broken down as follows:
Tigers 5, Bath 7, Gloucester 4, Exeter 4, Quins 8, Newcastle 1, Saints 6, Sarries 7, Wasps 7, Worcester 1.

Clubs have various injury lists, and some players maybe released back to clubs to play in 6N period, but I suspect Quins and Saints, given squad size and injuries will struggle the most, followed by Bath.

I expect Sarries and Wasps will cope fine. Quins away looks a little easier than it might, though Exeter at home still looks like a test. Lets hope we have a shorter injury list by then.

By 3 March (Exeter game) we will know if 4th place is realistic goal... it should be.
