I bet London Irish or Bristol would get more out of Chudley-Priestland-Roberts than we do.

Possibly one of them at any one time. Not sure about all 3 together.

I wonder if other clubs could get more out of Cook, Burns, Willison - individually and/or in combination - than we have managed. I would hope so - because we've squeezed the square root of f-all out of what most people would regard as three decent talents.

Pretty much any other club would get more out of all our players than we do, that much has been obvious for years. My point was in relation to people saying we need a big name 9, 10 and 12. What for? So they can underperform like everyone else at Bath?

We don't need a big name, but we do need a younger name at 10. RP and JR learnt their trade early Gatland, 10's like Cips and George Ford play a flatter, faster game. Its incredibly hard to relearn the 10 position if your instinct is to play deeper and let your 12 smash it up.
