Key man Ben Youngs Best signing Guy Thompson Rising star Will Evans
Best-case scenario Manu Tuilagi stays healthy, George Ford and Kyle Eastmond play some of the greatest hits from their time at Bath and the Tigers make it back to the Premiership final after a few years away.
Worst-case scenario Tuilagi is crocked once again as the club continue to slide and miss out on the top four for the second straight season, leading to Matt O’Connor’s second departure from the club. BC
