    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

    this is where it all went south last season. we had connacht (h), dragons (a), leicester (h + a), leinster (h), ulster (a) and stade f (h + a) in 8 weeks and we won 2 of 8.

    the biggest difference between this season and last would be squad depth......i hope.

      I don't think it's the most difficult. This time in 07/08 was pretty tight too - with an away loss to Wasps already on the board. Leinster at home (which we lost), the back to back with the Scarlets, away to Clermont and Wasps coming to us.

      Anyway...predictions...

      2/12 - Will the internationals be straight back in? With, I think we might nick it. But I suspect a narrow away loss.

      We'll beat Tigers at Thomond.

      We'll beat Tigers at Welford Road.

      We'll beat Leinster at Thomond.

      We'll lost to Connacht in Galway.

      We'll get a losing BP in Paris.

      We'll beat Glasgow in Glasgow.

      We'll beat Racing at Thomond to go through.

            An insane run of games - and I can't fupping wait.

            This is where we really stand up and be counted. It's going to be a special few weeks.

            Very confident it'll see us out of our group for the first time since 2014.

              Capable of winning them all. Every other team has a packed schedule too. All wins bar a losing bonus point away to Racing I would hope.

                Not a hope IMO of that. Every other team does have a fairly packed schedule but considering we've a rearranged European game in there....
                Wont be anything near all wins, will be at least 2 losses. Galway and Paris losses maybe another.

                  Leicester-Galway-Paris, I think 5 wins is feasible but a big ask.

                      You'd have to assume that after the back to back with Tigers and the Leinster home game that some players will be rested/carrying niggles for the Connacht away match.

                        Yeah I'm being over optimistic but I believe it can be done! There are Pro12 fixtures the weekend of our rearranged trip to Paris (I know they're a different level and intensity but there are still fixtures, i.e. Glasgow will have a game the week before we play them and may not rest absolutely everyone).

                        Target the double over Leicester firstly, and then theres 8-9 days until Leinster to regroup (17th-26th). Connacht then might be a tough ask alright but we've got the depth. 5 or 6 wins would delight me, but I still have hope of more!
                        and my home, my home is there.

                          Wasps have won there this year. But Tigers are in pretty solid form. I think if we keep up our current level, knock lumps out of them in Thomond and get some momentum up then I think we can catch them at Welford Road.

                            If we can keep the Tigers empty handed leaving Thomond Park they will have lost 2 out of 3 games and have just 4 points to show. That would put us in a fantastic place. However similarly to Munster, Leicester had very few guys away on international duty so they've been together for the last few weeks. We can do what Glasgow did to them in Scotstoun in Round 1 which is give them a thumping.
                            and my home, my home is there.

                              Thats an awful run of games. If ye get away with wins and only two losses it would be a good period.
                              Still so much depends on the form and fitness of the 10. Thats alot of rugby to be played in a short period of time.
                              Should have signed Jimmy Goppert . He would have loved the surfing in lahinch
