With our front 5 unavailability's going into the start of the season I think we are going to struggle most weeks unfortunately and you know the old adage about forwards!

I'm finding easier to think of who will finish below us this season. Although Worcester have had a major overhaul, they will inevitably start slowly, and probably finish below us.
Newcastle could finish below us. For me that leaves London Irish. They recruited strongly last year and may have settled in. Hopefully our squad will have settled into the systems introduced last year, so I'll say we will finish above them.
So I have selected 10th. No shame in that position for me. We are re-building the club, investing in the Academy and infrastructure with limited funds to do it, probably at the most challenging time the club has seen since WW2.
10th For me, anything else will be a bonus! C'mon Glos!

I’m expecting the worst, hoping for the best. At full strength we have a good squad, unfortunately we won’t be for a while.
Thank goodness there’s no relegation, it will give time for talent from the Academy to mature.
They don’t like it up ‘em.

The bookmakers seem to think we are in with a chance at Saints. They are predicting a 1 - 5 point margin for Saints, but say it is likely to be too close to be confident.

I know that we’re only 2 games in but the performance so far hasn’t, sadly, compelled me to alter my 11th prediction. :(

Unfortunately, I share your pessimism Tuffty! :cry:

To me, it seems that the strong teams are starting poorly (can’t see this continuing and they will come good). The perceived weaker teams (our table-position rivals) are putting in performances that are denting my pre-season expectations of them.

Combined, this is a little concerning.

Looks like it, yeah.

Seems like 3 months IS a long time in rugby.

Really glad to see that the team’s momentum has swung us up into the playoff places. Very happy to have my pessimism firmly put back in its box.

At the moment I’m truly loving being wrong. :D
