Week 9:

A tough result to match when compared to last season. Last Season we hosted the Kings in Galway, and came away with all 5 points.
This season, we had to play the reverse fixture in SA.
Happy to report, that we matched last seasons result, and picked up the 5 points.
So no change in comparison to last season, but that's a good thing, as we couldn't improve



Up next, are the Cheetahs away. We picked up a losing bonus point in the corresponding fixture last season. We should be looking for the win this time around, at least.

Also, I know it's not a fair comparison, as the game we have played were different, but after 9 rounds of matches this year, we have picked up 26 points, including 3 maximums, and 3 losing bonus points
After 9 games last season, we had 18 points, which included just one maximum, and 4 losing bonus points.

Week 10 Update:

Another week, another win, and another improvement on last season :D



That puts us on 30 points for the opening 10 games of the season, and on course for a total of 63 this season.
We're 16 points better off over last season, which is an excellent return.
No league matches for a few weeks, so no doubt this page will drop off on the front page

Must say, that this season feels a lot like Lam's second season in charge when we finished 7th
If you combine the conference tables at the moment, then we're in 4th place overall.
Things definitely feel much brighter this year, when compared to the past 2 seasons

I'm not yet ready to talk about this one.
Anyway, we improved 1 point on last seasons result from Dublin

Going to be tough to match the 5 points from last season against Ulster on Friday

Merry Christmas to you all

Another point dropped against last season :P

Good win, but failed to pick up the bonus point. Next up is the big one at home to Munster. A win in that game would have us on 40 points. We only got 39 all of last season.

Can't argue with the result. Munster deservedly beat us on Saturday night, but at least we picked up 1 point.
Dropped 3 points on last season though.

No league games for a few weeks now.
Back in action away to Cardiff later this month. Need to improve on the 2 points picked up there last season if we're serious about a 1/4 final spot

I've done a table of same games we've played vs Munster. Glasgow, Ospreys and Cardiff

Were 9 points behind Munster, 4 behind Glasgow, 2 behind ospreys and 4 ahead of Cardiff.

I know its not perfect but gives us an idea where we are and what we need in upcoming games to get more points of the other teams in conference A.

3rd game in a row where we dropped points in comparison to last season.
Poor game, poor performance, but lets move on, and worry about the Cheetahs in two weeks

Can't comment too much as I missed the game, but a win is a win. 3rd place in the Conference, and already more points this season, than we had in all of last season.
Hon Connacht

Week 16 Update:



The less said the better. The only good thing is that we picked up 0 points last season, and did the same this season.
Result dropped us to 4th in the table behind Cardiff (equal on points)

Next weekend is huge. We have Ospreys at home. A loss could be mean the end.
Cardiff are at home to the Kings, so must expect them to pick up maximum points.
I'd be content with 4 points for Connacht on Saturday

Week 17 Update:



Savage result. 5 points at home from against Ospreys.
Regardless of how Ospreys performed, we did what needed to be done, and regained 3rd place.

Two weeks off now, and then back at it against the form team, Treviso.
Definitely need to win this game too. Realistically, the next three games are tough, but also winnable. If we win all three, that could very easily be enough to get us into the Heineken Cup next season, and into the 1/4 finals of the league

Week 18 Update:

Great result. Not an exact comparison with last season, as we played and beat Treviso in Italy last season.
We improved from 4 points to 5 this season, but that was a much better Treviso team this year.

No Pro14 Rugby this weekend coming up. Next game for Comparison is away to Zebre. Need another 5 points really.
Going to be tight staying ahead of Cardiff for the rest of the season

Thanks for the update. Cardiff have Munster and ourselves away, and Ospreys in the last game. Even if we beat Cardiff in Galway on the 13th, we might still need to get some kind of result in Thomond last game of the season. We really need to see Munster beat Cardiff next weekend, and on recent form there's no guarantee that will happen!

Week 19 Update:

Not the prettiest, in fact, one of the ugliest games I've watched in a while, but 4 points are good.
Leinster and Treviso looked like a much better game, but we got more points than them :)

So, with 2 games left of the season, the worst that we can do, is improve on last season by 17 points. Would love to make it 27, but that is highly unlikely.
Everyone knows the permutations around the Cardiff game on Saturday, so I wont repeat what has been said by others.
Lets just go and win. Would be a fantastic achievement to qualify for the Heineken Cup on our merit again

Week 21 Update:

And that's my work done for another year.
Massive improvements on last season. 22 points better off.
3 places higher in the table
Qualified for the Champions Cup
Qualified for the Quarter Finals of the League
Beat Ulster in Ravenhill

All in all, I'd say a good league season for us. I'll be honest, I wasn't happy with Keane being let go last summer, but the move has well and truly been justified.
Onto Belfast next on Saturday
