A very comfortable win tonight. Pity the Saints lost their skipper to injury but couldn’t replace him - not sure why...........:dunno:

Against 14 the Bears tore them apart. Full points takes them into second.

Because he was their replacement loose head prop and it wasn’t a head injury. So by forcing uncontested scrums they also have to lose a player. It’s slightly harsh but does mean that teams won’t have their replacement prop go down ‘injured’ if their scrum is getting blitzed (a la saints tonight)

Pat's not happy with the Piatau ban, had a proper moan on BT afterwards.

Rightly so. Can’t see how a defensive punch, after being attacked, is the same as 3 punches (2 to the head whilst the other player is lying defenceless on the floor) on top of telling the referee to **** off. Bizarre decision

Strange that they both got the same. Piatau absolutely deserved his 3 weeks but in my view Kitchener should have been given 6-8.

My fear is that he rests a load this weekend as he did at Sale, and we get a similar performance.

Read that playing for 80 minutes for the forwards is like being in two car crashes for body impact. 

The players will need to rest otherwise physically they will fall apart

As qualification for Europe is guaranteed now, I think Pat will aim for the Challenge Cup and hopefully grab a top 4 place. Bath, Wasps and Sale only have the premiership to aim for so its going to be a tough ask for our squad to compete on two fronts. 

Winning the Challenge Cup was definitely the priority, it's plastered all over the inside of the new training ground. 

They won't want to blow the league either though with a top 4 finish in touching distance. 

Got to fight on both fronts and hope for the best. Like you say, at least Champions Cup rugby is guaranteed for next season and that was the ultimate aim, either by winning the Challenge Cup or a top 6 finish.

I assume every team 6th downwards have absolutely sacked off this season to prepare for next? Top 5 breaking away, annoying that Wasps and Bath keep winning too

As the top 8 all qualify for the champions Cup, and especially with the seeding in place, a lot of teams outside of the top 5 still have stuff to play for tbf
