Some good points there coleser. Much in line with my thinking. Time will tell I guess.

I agree Coleser, we look like a stable outfit that has strengthened in key areas over the summer:
- Hastings should add some experience and international class to the back line
- Meehan looks an able replacement for WH who was too often injured
- Davidson to replace Garvey

Add to that some good young competition for places and I feel we are in a much better position than last year. I see as as somewhere between 6th and 8th as our pack will be largely unaffected by international call ups during the winter months and we have good depth in the back line.

But you need to look how we have improved in comparison to other teams rather than if we have just improved against last season. Are the improvements sufficient to make up the gaps from last season + the improvements made by the teams we aspire to finish above?

Judging by the amount of tries we shipped in our preseason games I'd be amazed if we finished anything above 10th.
But then I am a pessimist when it comes to Gloucester Rugby (I've been hurt to many times!)

Lovejoy, I don’t think they have all improved. Based on recruitment alone Bristol, Quins, Irish, Wasps, Saints and Sale don’t look any better on paper than the start of last season.

Are we spending up to the cap ? I understood we were but is this still the understanding?
IF we are, then I assume the only benefits of a big sponsor/ sugar daddy would be more money to spend on staff/ facilities etc. or am I missing something?

I think we are, the more interesting question would be are we spending to the cap with the maximum permitted allowances and credits? I think this is almost certainly not.

If you have a Sugar Daddy then you can effectively have 6 marquee players if you structure the contracts in the right way. You only get two per season but with some smart rotation it’s easy to load contracts and rotate the marquee exemptions.

But have our improvements meant we can bridge the 40, 26, 3, 5, 12 and 29 points gaps?

Would I be correct to say that Covid points might have made a difference there? Just a thought.

You really can't attach too much weight to pre-season games. We changed entire teams at half time, brought on huge amounts of subs, and all teams are going for tries not building a score.
