As I ready myself for the trip to Brookie I can't help but think ack to where we were i 2007 & 2008. 2nd on the ladder behind the cheating scum and looking like Premiership heavy weights. Fast forward and in 2009 we slipped to 5th and in 2010 we will be 7th, 8th or 9th and it is obvious we are on the slide. Whilst I accept we have had injury problems this year I can't help but wonder if we will be able to reverse the slide next ear. We haven't made a purchase of note in the past 2 years and we haven't made any for next year. If next year continues the slide we will be way overdue for a clean out. Here's hoping for a great Fathers day.
