Well done Tigerchef for your honesty and explanation. I went for 9th based on much of the same "logic". I am just hoping that LI and Newcastle take the bottom 2 places + we get the odd wins at home. So not as gloomy but not filled with much more hope.

From looking at the Poll back in August '19 an awful lot of SW voters got it horribly wrong with their optimism.......

I think Bristol will do better again this season. With none of their many very expensive South Sea Islanders not involved in the internationals (other than Radarada for the autumn internationals) they will lose far fewer players than, for example, we or many others will. Not sure how long Malins and Earle are staying with Bristol but even they are not guaranteed starts with England. That only leaves Sinkler away for long periods

And wow....what a world class £15m training faculty they have to help them

Gone for 8th on the basis that the league and Europe will be a stretch.

However if the pack keeps on improving and if Cips or another returns to form 6/7th is a possibility.

It wouldn’t be a shock if we finished above Irish, Newcastle, Leicester and Worcester, possibly Saints

Just adjusting my expectations, then anything better than that is a bonus.

I’ve got a snapshot of it anyone want to adjust their forecast after the reality check that was served up?
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

With Newcastle beating Bath away they now represent a much sterner test then perhaps was previously anticipated.
