6 Nations League fixtures

Am I right in thinking that whilst the 6 Nations are on, we play Bristol, Exeter and Sarries?

3 of the most in form teams in the league. I wouldn't imagine many of the Bristol side will be called up for international, but Exeter and Sarries could well be stripped, as per the World Cup.

On the other hand, how many are we likely to lose?

Biggar and Hutch already announced. As for England, I would imagine that only Lawes and Ludlam will be away.

Bristol haven't been in form for months now, of their last 4 league games they've lost three and drawn one. It's certainly a good time to play Exe and Saracens though.

I still think Bristol are one of those teams that could punish you if you lose concentration for a moment. We might be fortunate that they are unlikely to have Charles Piatau available due to injury.

still, the best chance of 2 wins against Exeter and Sarries for a long time. Could make the table look even better!

Agree re cheaters at home but would still not fancy Exeter away . I also assume any England squad members will not be available for London Irish match on 24th Jan ?

Sorry you have completely lost me again. Because Bristol are in poor form and Sarries and Exeter will lose more players than we will. How is that not a good time to play them?
