The bottom two in the Gallagher Premiership both won their matches at the weekend, against Sale and relegation rivals Bristol respectively, and it is now extremely tight at the foot of the table.
Leicester Tigers have become involved after their defeat at home to Midlands rivals Northampton Saints, and here is how the table looks with 5 rounds to play.
Only 12 points now separate 5th from 12th, and apart from Exeter, Newcastle in 12th are showing the best run of form with 3 wins in a row.
At the other end of the table, Exeter have opened up a significant gap on Saracens, but surely the title will belong to one of these two teams. Everyone else appears to be making up the numbers in mid-table, although they aren’t ‘making up the numbers’ quite as well as Sarries if some rumours are to be believed.
Gloucester and Harlequins have a little bit of daylight between themselves and the rest in mid-table, but they can easily be caught with some tough matches still to come.
But don’t get too excited about the run-in just yet, as we’re back to European Rugby this weekend…
Which team do you think will be relegated? What were the other main talking points from the weekend’s Rugby?
