I would be astonished if we get anything from the Glasgow game. Hope Im wrong as we are going up but they will be a challenge. Its also galling that Cardiff are likely to win the HC place yet arent in our class at the moment and surely wont be a force next year if all their leavers are true. Our fault for having such a poor first half of the season


I fear no one let's just go out to win and win well.



I sense a belief growing amongst the squad which eminates from our South Sea Islanders & is carried on by the enthusiasm of young players sensing their chance. Look at the growing levels of performance from Mathias, Shaun Evans, Wainwright, Dan Davis, Eddie James & Joe Roberts. I am not saying we are the finished article as we were when we came on that 2nd half of the season run in our title year but this is the special. Nobody & I say that with the greatest respect will be fancying a trip to PYS for a knock out game. 

It’s made a difference having a fit open side. I think we’ll push Cardiff close. Make Judgement day interesting.

Yes,a few weeks ago I didn’t think that we would be anywhere near the Ospreys or Cardiff but I too believe that it will all come down to judgement day.
All we have got to hope for is that JW and a few others don’t get injured or called up for tackle bag holding by Gatland.

Against Glasgow, I think that if we get over our comatose starts and habit of receiving cards for minor or technical offences we could well win. However these are fairly big "ifs"

I think that we're the best Welsh side at the moment, during the test window. We were probably the worst side pre Xmas.
Definitely on an upward curve. I honestly don't think we're good enough for HC rugby next season. We just don't have the pack or carriers, especially without Sione, to compete. Our backs can too easily be starved of ball.

Best we can hope for this season realistically is to beat an uninterested Brive at home and set up a nice home QF which will generate some positivity and cash! 

Having said that, I'd still to finish as top Welsh side!

Aren't in our class at the moment? They've won more games than us....

The market is deliberately kept under supplied to allow for sky-high rates to be charged.

Looking at the other teams run-ins and tbf the Sharks have a tough last 3, us, Benetton and Munster. They could drop out of 7th place quite easily there
