Previews

Yet again Gloucester feature in the Friday night televised fixture. Having capitulated last week, after playing so well for 50 minutes, they will be seeking an 80 minute performance as they take the short trip to near neighbours Worcester. The Warrioirs were game gainst a misfiring Saracens at twickenham last week, but never really threatened and like their visitors ran out of steam in the last 30 minutes. With their absence list unlikely to recede any, the home team will have to rely on spirit and determination against a side with more class - but a fragile core. Gloucester should have too much ability for the Warriors, but it is easy to foresee another implosion. If Warriors can keep this tight they can prey on Glaws nerves - but do they have the firepower to score the points when needed?

Friday evening concludes in Salford as two sides have been castigated by either the coaches or the fans for poor performances meet. Main difference of course is that Sale lost while Harlequins won. Friday nights at home usually see Sale fired up and usually victorious. It will need a much better performance than they saw last week from the forwards, but there is every chance that they will be too organised for a Quins team that seemed strangely lethargic. Quins fans will want to see much more from their backs, starting with skipper Care showing the verve they are used to.

Saturday starts at the wreck where hosts Bath entertain a Falcons team who also won last week. Both teams struggled for attacking fluency last week, and both sides could see major changes in personnel. Todd Blackadder will be looking at the physio's room with some trepidation due to the volume of injuries suffered last week, while Dean Richards is almost famous now for rotating his team for away fixtures. Even short of certain players, and with their issues at 12, on 2015 form Bath would win this game with some ease. That form has not been seen for a while though and Falcons fans will believe they can cause an upset. In the end it coudl well come down to which team has the individual who creates something from nothing. Sinotti v Roku, Joseph v Goneva if you will.

The M69 derby (less sniggering from Saints fans at the back please) will see both teams looking for more of the good stuff they showed last week, and much less of the bad and the ugly.  Leicester spent 50 minutes showing all the frailties of execution that bedeviled them in the big games last season. Not wanting to take anything away from Gloucester who showed exemplary hands and support running in that spell, it could be argued that Tigers gifted 3 of the tries with two interceptions (Tait and Betham) and Manu's crass attempts to charge out of the line. Defence coach Scott Hansen will be drilling the big man all week it is to be hoped. Meanwhile Wasps showed some good invention in the backs but looked a little light of firepower up front, especially at the breakdown. They will need to see a big improvement in that area if they are not to be over-run by tigers, while the home team will need to improve their support running and just play with a little more nous rather than trying to force everything.

On Sunday we will see what may be the first AP match at Ashton Gate, the lastest groundshare for premiership new boys Bristol. Having played about as well as they could have hoped at Twickenham, yet lost, they host a Saints team smarting from a home defeat in Round 1. Unlike Bristol, it would be hard for anyone to say Northampton played well, yet they still managed to secure the LBP and their defence was strong. Saints fans will hope that DoR Mallinder gives them the midfield they desire and that the pack fronts up. They were seriously poor last week. Saints will need to put in a big performance this week and if they play anything close to their ability they will be too strong. Come up short on that though and Bristol will look for the upset.

Sunday's televised game gives us a repeat of last seasons Premiership Final. Exeter looked strong up front at the Ricoh, but seemed to struggle for fluency in the backs. Everything seemed very direct and was meat and drink for the Wasps defence. Chiefs certainly have the forwards to put the champions under pressure, but may need to play a more territorial game if they want their first win of the season. Despite being some way under par against Worcester, Saracens still won easily, demonstrating their strength and overall class across the pitch. Even if Exeter can gain the upper-hand up front they have that fearsome defence that will force errors from even the best teams and enough players who can thrive on the counter-attack to score the tries needed for victory. Exeter will look to use their driving lineout which has worked so well against ?Saracens in the past, Saracens will try and make Exeter run from deep.



Predictions:

Gloucester by 7
Sale by 5
Bath by 10
Wasps by 30
Saints by 7+
Sarries by 6

Well Sale deserved that despite not really doing anything.

Quins Pros

Forwards in general solid. Won the breakdown, solid scrum, lineout.

Cons

Kicking absolutely awful
No chasing kicks
All 'star' players making stupid handling errors
3 cards, should have been 4

Next game for me : Walker for Visser. Jackson for Evans. Brown for Chisholm. Ward for Buchanan. Spend the next week doing non stop handling drills.

Fully expect the Bath forwards in this pack in the match against Falcons to play a tight lineout and mauling game simply due to a lack of breakdown specialists.
If the ball is spun out wide, Banahan and Roko will be doing a fair bit of clear out work along with young Clark, who is not exactly small either.

Newcastle played a smart pressure game last season and Bath were lucky to scrape a win. Looking close again this time.

Thought the red was harsh too..

This season appears to have got off to quite a brutal start, perhaps we need an Aviva Injury thread to keep everyone up to speed but also to help us understand if anything is changing.

There were some very interesting comments from Baxter, Youngs and McCall on the BBC (Matt Dawson radio) season preview regarding concussion.

Four points from the opening two games though, not too bad a return.

I just cannot understand what Mallinder is doing, a Myler, Burrell, Pisi midfield is a known and well tried failure, it didn't work last season; it didn't work last week.

A Myler, Mallinder, Burrell midfield is a known success, it worked last season and it worked last week when Foden went off. It give kicking options either side of the scrum and a massive boot for taking penalties into touch, Myler makes good ground, Mallinder has a very accurate howitzer of a boot and will generally make 15-20m more. That is a big factor when putting sides under pressure pinning them back into their own half.

It seems that Mallinder Snr. does not trust his son to play 12 and views him as a utility back.

Good that Harrison is back, he made instant ground last week, something that was missing for the first 60 minutes.

I assume Foden is still recovering from his knock and that is why he is benched.

I cannot believe that Paterson is playing on marks out of 10, last week he was about a 2. Craig or Dickinson are much better options.

Nic Groom can count himself unlucky, he brought pace and direction to the play last week hen he came on and scored two tries, what else goes he have to do to get a starting berth.

I am beginning to think we are in for a very mediocre season already, just more of the muddled thinking we had last year. If so I think we need to be looking for a new DoR next year, if not sooner.

I asked last season if Jim had reached the end of his shelf life. It happens to all coaches in all sports, eventually the players have heard it all. People like Alex Ferguson would change their assistant manager every two or three years to shake things up, but the Mallinder/West combo have been there a long time now. The one change they made, Alex King, seems to have co-incided with a real tough time - but how much say does he have?


It is too early to talk about sackings etc, but it is always easy to see after the event thatthe coach stayed too long (see COS at Quins). Thing is their past acheivements buy them so much credit that there is always the belief they will turn things round (see Wenger at Arsenal)

True, and I'd largely expected this number of points after 2 games. The frustration lies with the continued inconsistency seeing us fluctuate from sublime to ridiculous rugby. We really should be on 9 points by now.

At least you get the sublime!! All we get is the ridiculous followed by the poopie!

I'd give anything to see Quins score a try or two like Glos did these last 2 games, even just a few phases like you've had.

Head up. Only one game and the line-up for another. Let's see how things develop. The Burrell-Pisi axis of mediocrity will not last. Jim has done well for us and let's give him some slack. Maybe Prince Harry (he is still only a lad, mind) picked up a bit of a knock last week and needs a little reduced workload this week.

Maybe Burrell will come good as a 12. Maybe Pisi will recapture the fountain of youth. Maybe we will see real dynamic attacking Rugby tomorrow. OK.......maybe we will see the tooth fairy.

McGuigan having a shocker. Miss throws a couple of lineouts and the takes out Simpson to concede a penalty.

Referee is allowing Gaskell to close the gap at the lineout and then let's half the pack come around and block off the Tigers pack from the jumper.

Moronic yellow card for Genge. He's walked straight into that one and allowed Gaskell to milk out the penalty and the yellow. Great take from Gaskell who's looked excellent at the lineout as well.

This is tense, though Henge is about to go Yellow. This boys got loads of potential, I can see why he went south in the summer.

Burns is my mom as things stand.

Wasps miss their 3rd pen in succession.

Tigers down to 14 for the rest of time Run

How far offside do Wasps have to be at the lineout? Johnson is through the Tigers line when the ball hasn't reached Kitchener. That forces the error and now Tigers look likely to get a yellow for a deliberate knock on.
