In this week's podcast we discuss the cancellation of the home game against Scarlets, where we've been awarded a 28-0 - five point win - as our opponents were unable to field a team. Looks good on paper for the start of our Champions Cup campaign, but will this week off be a blessing in disguise or a setback for our European ambitions.
We also look ahead to the trip to Paris for the next European game against State Francais. We hear from our good friend Remi Calandra, a State Francais fan, about the team's performances this season, players to watch and how the game will go next week.
With over a third of the league season over, we also have a debate on what's happened to the Bears this season and give our predictions on how the rest of the league campaign will pan out. Can the Bears make the top four this term - hear our thoughts on likely league positions.
All this and more including the women's team regaining top spot in the league table.
