You only need to go back to 2013 Jimpy.

But I agree with you on the play-offs, sod them let's have a proper meaningful league.

And I think they might have nicked a title off Glaws early AP doors.... but still, They're not often a 'beneficiary' of the play-off system (as has been suggested).

With club games running through internations you do end up seeing teams losing players through no fault of their own and affecting resulsts.

Is the playoff structure not meant to be in place in order to take account of games during internationals and also top end players getting pulled for Test matches? The premise being that it might not necessarily be true that the team that finishes top at the end regular season was the best team as they may have benefitted (supposedly) or capitalised on other teams during AIs and 6Ns periods.

Saracens got a great win on the road, never an easy task.  Bath made the Tigers look like an embarrasment.  I wonder will Bath look back on this season and rue not capitalising on meeting a poor Leinster team in the QFs of Europe (and probably paying them too much respect in the match)?

It will be an interesting final. Hopefully a open affair with plenty of tries (with the players deciding the result instead of the ref's whistle).

Whilst I could be accused of bias, as well as being almost pigeon English, that statement is pure fabrication. Both DoR were quoted as saying that the final score flattered Bath - yes Mike ford said it too. Cockerill did make some odd comments, but do try to look at the match stats. Leicester were hardly under the cosh. Finishing was their problem (and it has been all season). Bath were lucky not to have a penalty try against them when they had two yellow cards in quick succession under their own posts. However, they didn't, Bath got away and built an unassailable lead. Well played, they were better on the day.

'almost pigeon English' (?) Jimpy, as a dyslexic trying to post on these boards I'm not sure if I should take that as a complement or serious insult.

As for the statement, I stand by it even though the DoRs took a different view of the game. A good DoR should reign in the players after a comprehensive victory and not stick the boot in in the media after a comprehensive defeat. Ford and Cockerill are both very good at their job. Doesn't mean you can't disagree of course and you're perfectly entitled to do so.

Like I said, if you don't believe two highly respected DoR, then try looking at the match stats too.

No complaints about the result personally.
