It's a very different league this year. Last year we and Saracens had played 4 won 4 and were already stretching away. This year anyone can beat anyone (Except Leicester who are still struggling).

It's partly to do with the World Cup but also that other teams have adapted both their own games and the way in which they play against us and Saracens.

Coming out of Sunday's game I am sure that we can play an awful lot better than we did in either half, Bristol, on the other hand probably can't play much better than they did in the second half and almost certainly won't be able to keep it up for the whole season, no team does.

Ultimately class wins out over everything but money and we still have one of the classiest squads in the Prem to which Hogg already shows signs of adding some gloss. It's a shame that Europe starts this weekend rather than after another two rounds of the Prem IMO as I think we'll be a bit undercooked against La Rochelle and a LBP is the most I would expect us to pick up.
