    Cov very lucky
    Arguably the worst we’ve played at home this season to be honest, more questions than answers.

    Apologies.
    Don’t think I’ve ever seen a game that’s been played in less of either sides 22’s than that!

    Lucky Cov had Lewis’ kicking first half and Emery’s running 2nd.

    Woolford and Nutley did well in the pack.

    Decent crowd, 2 home games left a beating by Ealing in 3 weeks I fear and a competitive game v Notts mid April before the seasons out at the BPA main aim now is to get a win on the road!!

    I presume Cov are pretty much safe now barring a disaster?

    Yeah, 6 games left 21 points clear of bottom.

    7th at the min (on 38 points) could easily finish anywhere between 6th (42 points) and 10th (30 points).

    Yes
    Shoot out between Richmond and Hartpury (who have double figures of loan players from prem clubs to help them stay up)

    No, promotion was never on this season London Irish were always going to go back up and Ealing were always going to run them close.

    Cov 7th at min likely to finish between 6th-10th tough ish run in only 2 home games left, 4 away (yet to win away this season still) likely to lower than 7th imo.

    Can’t say I agree tbh, the BPA has become a fortress, why pay wasps to stage a game when we have a home and also one Rugby team playing their in front of 20k+ empty seats already is enough, it doesn’t need another.

    2 brilliant additions this pair have been over the last couple of seasons, more than played their part in the promotion of last season and the stability of this!
    Big losses on and off the field!

    Says a lot the amount of players Rowland Winter has brought in during his tenure and he says Tuitupou is his best!

    If they lose to bottom Newcastle on Saturday it could get interesting but still not likely

    Nah more than enough sides between them and the bottom, hopefully they’ll miss out in the top 6 meaning they miss out on the top European Comp next season!

    Let’s see how many they get up the Ricoh on a December Thursday night v a Russian side in the challenge cup!

    15-14 loss

    Despite leading 14-0

    This away win really isn’t going to come!

    Rumours doing the rounds that Premiership ringfencing wont happen, but Premiership will increase to 13 from 12 and that bottom of the Prem will play top of the Champ in a 2 legged playoff.
    Again that favours the prem side but better than than a complete closed door!

    The rugger buggers on the Wasps forum want a closed door because teams below are too shit. Ambitious bunch

    That's still appalling, how many teams are really going to overturn a Prem side. Money and the cretins who govern it trash so much sport these days.
    I think the final Cov home game v Nottingham has suddenly become quite important. We really need that win now with our away record.

    Cracking result for Cov yesterday down on the moneyed isle.
    Signing off the season with two away wins (better late etc) gives hope and momentum towards a better season to come.
    Eighteen points clear of relegation, and the best debut season in the Championship in the last 10(?) years says it all really.
    Chuffed.
