I hate these big gaps between games.
 
I know we took a beating last time out, but this is when we needed a game ASAP to put things right.
 
These three weeks are dragging and the last thing in the squads mind is the loss.
 
Also, there will be the integration of some of the International players, so I worry we may not be there mentally for the Edinburgh game.
They have always caused us problems, and we cannot afford to lose this one in the run in.
 
I hope all works out.

On the other hand, the break is a great chance after a pasting...regroup, refresh, right the wrongs.
Plus, time for physical and mental bumps and bruises to heal

hopefully coaches will also be looking at what the squad will need next year and maybe some recruitment may be taking place. 
guys have had a hard run of games and a break will recharge the batteries.

After that inexcusable show in Ealing they will need to prune a few names first before thinking of recruitment.

I hope there's newspaper clippings up of the Leinster game for the boys to look at to be honest. Put some fire in their bellies.

I know there are a myriad of reasons not to do it but it may have been a good opportunity to field them against Ealing so they were match fresh and could have blown away the loss to Leinster. The main worry is that if anyone got injured especially on their 4G pitch, our reserve reserves look decidedly poor.
