So final table, and we're +23 for the season. Thats massively impressive
The biggest increases are
Ospreys, where we're plus 7 this season
Glasgow, where we're plus 6
and Munster, where we're plus 5
The biggest disappointments are:
Treviso, minus 4 this season
and Ulster, minus 1
Going to be hard to top this season

I remember watching it in the Dail. Poor game, but I'll never forget Daragh Leader's dad shouting out 'That's bulls**t!' when he got the MOTM award.

Was actually quite happy Edinburgh won today as it keeps them involved in the race for European qualification. Given two of their upcoming games are against Leinster or Munster it's no harm to keep them interested.
You have to feel sorry for Dragons, 9 losing bonus points at this stage.Have had 6 games since Christmas they could or should have won. Not good enough for Top 6 but are a lot more competitive than their 25 point total suggests.

its not that long ago Mikey, go even further back when the changing rooms were under the main stand and the players came out the middle of it.

I considered putting them in a while ago, but didn't want to jinx it (because my thoughts have a huge bearing on on world events).
It's beginning to look like a reasonable aspiration now though. But because it's been such a weird season I don't think the points required for fourth last year are any indication of what would be required this year.
