I can see we can achieve the following at best
Gloucester (A) 0 pts
Quins (H) 4 pts
Sarries (A) 0 pts
Warriers (A) 4 pts
Wasps (H) 4 pts
Bath (A) 1 pt
Saints (H) 4 pts
Falcons (H) 4 pts
Sharks (A) 1 pt

54 max - if we do that we will have done very well. Yes, people will look at this and have a different opinion but that number of points is unlikely to get us into the top 6. 14/5 7th =; 15/6 8th; 16/7 6th.
Hehehehehehehehe

At the moment I would have doubts about Wasps, Falcons getting more than a point at best.

Very pessimistic prediction 1988, but unless we significantly improve you could be right, unfortunately!!

Yes Rugbyflanker but Gloucester will have only lost Owen Williams to Wales whereas we would have lost 4 internationals possibly Manu.

If we improve and Gengey returns then perhaps a possibility, we'll see how many improvements are made during the next four weeks

Noticed that there weren't any try bonus points in the predictions, which seems fair enough as we are bottom of the table for those (equal with London Irish). We have one try bonus point in the premiership, next lowest is 3; Exeter have 8.

While winning is first priority, the lack of bonus points is also killing our chances of a top six finish.

4 points against Quins is a real pipe dream as is Warriors also

I'd put money on him being right - its a good job London Irish are here to save the team. And even that's debateable the way this shower are performing.

I've said again and again that the lack of winning (when they were!) bonus points was detrimental to the team's standing, only to be told that bonus points weren't important. If you look at the table, the bonus points the team (almost certainly) missed out on early doors would have Tigers in 6th right now.

I think top 6 is the best we could do, but we need to sack MOC and appoint an interim HC (possibly Smurf) as well as interim Forwards and backs coaches.

That isn't what you were told. You were told that winning games was the most important but that BP's were also important but no good if you are not winning most of the games.

Oooo, you'd have to provide a quote, because I'm afraid I don't believe you.
