Thank you for your confidence in us, SB is making a massive difference. We will see how the season pans out.
A question re Biarritz, where are the club at now, also Pau, will they both ever return to the top table ?

Biarritz are currently 3rd in ProD2 (76 points), behind Vannes and Perpignan (both with 90) with 5 games to play before the play-offs, which they will surely make. Other clubs likely to qualify are Colomiers, Oyonnax and Grenoble.
As for Pau, they are currently 13th in the Top14 with 32 points after 20 matches with 6 to play, and 7 points adrift of Bayonne who they play at home next match on April 16th. If they lose then there'll probably be in a play-off with the side finishing 2nd in proD2 - which may be Biarritz!

Will they ever return to the top of the table? The answer is not in the foreseeable future as they can't compete financially with the current clubs at the top. Also, Biarritz are currently in a dispute with the Mairie (town hall) of Biarritz and have threatened to move to Lille (probably the furthest town possible from Biarritz!!), but it's probably an empty threat - but then again, they're French!!

Why can’t you stand them Scott, is it because they are the team we’d like to be, got to give it to them Rob Baxter has coached them into a a brilliantly gifted side and club.

Just can’t take to them,saw the change in their fan base as soon as they started winning things and their players rub me up the wrong way too. Think there is a bit of slyness to Baxter too,as if he’s playing a role,he got caught on camera when his true colours came out the once.

Dunno they are led by a bloke formerly of this parish. Cullen was a popular player here before he went back.

While I don't agree about the players, the fan base has changed with lots of monied arrivistas occupying the West main stand and being feted. Not my sole conclusion, as you know my family are all fans and two are North Stand STHs. When Rowe pegs it, a lot might change.
