What is the deal with lions players can they come straight back in or do they get a rest?

As potentially Bath could be missing
Faletau, Watson, Joesph

and Saints missing
North and Lawes.


in terms of fixtures i'm happy with that we face.

Murderers row again over Xmas,this is where we fell apart last season. We lost all four I believe while Exeter took 14 points out of similar fixtures. Must beat all the top 3 at least once this season or its scrapping with Bath and my dark horses Gloc for 4th!

Would be amazed if Glous are near the top 4.

They're capable of beating anyone and the only thing consistent about them is there inconsistency. I think they've brought well and I rate Ackermannn very highly. I also think LI will do well and there wont be a whipping boy this year, someone unexpected will get sucked in.

Ackermann is a good coach but he has never coached in the NH before and there is a big difference between Super rugby/Currie cup rugby and Prem rugby.(As Blackadder found out during the winter months) he won't have the benefit of pre-season training with Glous either which will make things alot harder start of the season wise.

Owen and Woodward are good signings, but i don't rate Woodman enough to change that tight 5 around.

Yep. That's huge - massive bonus for us.

All told, that's a pretty favourable fixture list. No better time to go to Allianz Park than when they don't have their internationals too.

The 'acid test' for MOC. Get through this period with some good wins and the silverware will be there for the taking :smt027 :smt027

Has anyone else had a notification from BBC Sport to say Gloucester Vs Leicester has been 'postponed'? Since that's not scheduled until 10th Feb i.e. the 6Nations period, that seems a bit previous especially as fixtures for those rounds are not confirmed....
