At this stage, with nothing much to base our performance on (or, crucially, that of other teams, who also want to win games, dagnabbit) I am somewhat pessimistic about our chances this season, but hope to be proved wrong. I remain to be convinced that we have a robust defence, nor the ability to get good ball to let the backs loose to score willy-nilly.

I went 12th, though to be honest I am not convinced I can predict who would come below us this season.

I've gone for 6th - I believe that is achievable with the squad we have.

I too went for 12th.

Pre-season (so far) hasn’t been great, performance wise at least. I don’t see enough improvements in the set-piece and I think we lack enough grunt and size in the pack to win enough clean ball.

Second row is a massive concern, with the front row also lacking SiD.

My hope is Wuss carry on their 2020/21 season form and finish below us. I do think they’ve recruited well though.

I hope to be surprised and don’t mean to be negative, it’s just I can’t see us putting in enough good performances, consistently at least, to trouble many teams.

ill wait until after the first 2 matches.

Those matches should be a good indication where we are at and how the season will go - 2 teams that finished mid table last season.

If they go well, then top 6 is on otherwise it will be a tough one away at Worcester in game week 3.

9th at best for me, whilst we have some very good players most will be absent during the international windows and the squad still looks thin to me.

We’ve obviously made cuts to survive and this season is a freebie, fingers crossed some external investment comes and we can invest in the squad.

Great that we are promoting the academy but experience is still needed.

I'm in the pessimistic camp this year, I think we'll be fighting to not finish bottom. Much will depend on how we go at home. I hope I'm very very wrong!!
