For anyone hoping Bath's poor form might help us avoid the drop - bad news. Currently 38-3 up at Irish after only 55 minutes (where we lost 36-11), which means it's us and Wasps adrift at the foot of the table.

Add to that the fact that we host Wasps during the Six Nations and things do not look any easier.

Maybe it's an idea to watch the rest of the games this season stoned, so when we lose, it won't hurt so much. :smt017 :smt030

Reckon it’ll be Worcester and Irish dropping off the pace and scrapping it out with us and Wasps

Bristol Wasps is a pretty dire match.. 3-0 BRI at HT but neither team looking like much to worry about on this showing.

A win at WR against Bristol ‘should’ be very achievable and if we can beat Quins this weekend we could start to see greener pastures on the horizon...

Here’s hoping anyway..

Break the line score a try Vs Bristol tonight. Cover defence doesn't seem to exist. Late Christmas presents for Wasps really.

It appears that Wasps have decided that they want to win and get a bonus try point....that has not helped out case if this remains the same. I guess it’s all on us to get us out of the mess rather than rely on other teams to be worse than us.
There is never any points for 2nd place...

That's always likely to be the case. We'll have to start winning if we want to stay up. Wasps got away with one there; Bristol defence was woeful, sir refused to sin bin any of their players despite a penalty everytime Bristol were in the red zone during the second half and the last try had a blatant bit of obstruction in the build up.
