A stellar effort CRFC.

Makes for interesting reading, and ultimately a dull aching headache (because of our results, not your lovely stats) :lol:

Thanks as ever CRFC.

Been worrying so far comparing last season's results with this, but I see from the second half of November to mid-January, our results from last season in those fixtures would be:
W 1
D 3
L 7

So if there's anytime to do a bit of making up (or hopefully overtaking) of last season it's then.

Agree Dodger,

The remainder of this seasons fixtures month by month compared to the corresponding result last year
October = 3 games - 7 points
November = 4 games - 1 point
December = 7 games - 4 points
January = 4 games - 8 points
February = 3 games - 4 points
March = 4 games - 6 points
April = 4 games - 1 point
May = 2 games - 1 point

Given how disappointing last season was it's really something that after nine games we are now nine points worse off. Will we end up dreaming wistfully of a return to the results of 16/17?
