Well its a loaded question but suffice to say unless things positively change both on and off the pitch, then I cannot see us staying up if the status quo remains.
Without hope we are nothing, keep the faith, a Tiger for eternity

Slightly longer answer.

I simply don't believe the squad we have can fail to muster enough points to stay up.

In addition Wasps and Bath are really struggling. And Worcester are always in the relegation mix.

Agree with this 100% and I would add Quins into that mix despite their scrape past Gloucester.
Also other teams seem to have the same ability to implode as us. Sale’s red card at the weekend, Bristol despite playing some brilliant rugby still couldn’t beat Irish at home who had 14 men for more than half the game

Nope. But I suspect we will still be in the Euro Challenge zone.

Nottingham 1995-2000
Swansea (Whites) 1988-95
A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.

And I personally don’t have a problem with that. I don’t see any point in having to play players in 6 extra top flight games in a competition we’re not currently in the position to win.

Just my opinion of course

A better question might be what will come first - a change of ownership or a change of Head Coach?

If they remove Murphy and a stack of Coaches now, they will survive, just.
Otherwise no, and our only saviour then would be either Cornish Pirates or Newcastle not exercising their option !!

Agreed, people are being naive in thinking just because we have the players then we can’t go down. If we carry on playing like we have over the first 5 games then we’re 100% getting relegated. Something needs to change and fast.

Clearly something needs to change to avoid relegation but that could be that quite simply the team plays better. I am not saying that can't or won't happen unless the coaches change. Evidence thus far would suggest otherwise. But it's possible.

I reckon Murphy has the next block of three Prem matches - Chiefs (H), Quins (A), Bears (H). More of the same we'd had so far won't be good enough.
