I'd imagine success will be measured against targets set at the beginning of the season, like any other job! I think top 6 was the goal (mentioned at fans forum) so that will be what's measured against.

Ken - accept some of your comments but Atkinson’s try was due to poor defensive alignment

Maybe reassess when more of the full squad are back and the new players have bedded in.

Leicester’s defence seemed to consist of continually dropping driving mauls illegally. Unfortunately Foley didn’t flash yellow cards or award penalty tries so their cynical tactics worked. Is that good coaching?

Unlike Dickson at Wasps' game. Brad Shields ended up with two yellows, the second of which made it a red, for pulling down mauls.

I did think whether our game had an affect on Dickson.
