Think you have to be fairly happy with those first couple of fixtures a lot will depend of course who if anyone is back from the World Cup.
Other than our English contingent I think we would be without Taufua and Lavanini

Wuss could be a blessing or a curse. Win a very win-able game and we're off to the races, lose against the weakest team in the league and its back to business as usual.

We will have world cup players away at least until the European fixtures as players will need a break, i am not sure how many Worcs, Gloucester or Irish players will be affected. Saracens of course will be hit hard. The end of the season will also be tough for players that have been involved in Japan as they tire. Squad depth is going to be very important, our youngsters will have to grow up quickly.

Interesting point. Of our 6 English players, though I think one of our props may miss out, the only ones I think that will be worked hard in the World Cup, are Youngs, May, and possibly Tuilagi.
None of the other 3 are 1st choice for their positions so may return relatively fresh

I agree with Mark,Genge looks like missing out. Cole will be playing the first couple of games then we will probably won't see him again bar injury so he will be relatively fresh. Ford "might" start the first couple then he will only get 2/3 minutes when Farrell moves to 12 at the end of a game although that could change depending on Manus fitness. That why we have to take Teo if fit,Ford,Farrell,Slade fills me with dread! Anyway I digress but just my thoughts.

October seems like a long time to wait though. Is it later than usual? I guess it is a sign that I am looking forward to the new season on the back of the new signings.

Yes because of the World Cup the season has been moved around. Premiership Cup will be played through September and European fixtures are a lot closer together
