The only thing I'm focusing on is our position at the End of the season,which includes Finals.

If we're lucky,we'll finish 5th.Possibly.

Still not sure we have the Personelle to challenge for Premiership Glory yet.

Hope I'm wrong of course.

I've got one for him.

Allowing for a year or 2's non participation during WW1,we are now 146 years old.

He can compile a best 22 from 1873 - 1945 and one from 1946 - 2018.Yes,I know we haven't started this year,but I'll keep it in the equation.

Players such as Dick Reynolds can be picked in both sides,just to add a bit of spice. :mrgreen:

Pretty bad when the only consolation this year is that I didn't make a prediction.
