I think in the last few years Villa has stepped up and surprised a lot of teams (2018, 2019 - won't count 2020). Keeping in mind Villa's not a traditionally strong rugby school either!!! I've been hearing stories coming out of Villa that there is a lot of competition in the backrow department which will give the coach a few selection headaches. However, it is a very inexperienced side especially in the front row lacking a bit of size, so I can't imagine a premiership is on the cards. I think it might be another year of what if. On a positive note the current year 10 cohort has been strong in recent years including Cam Bukowski being a certain starter for first xv. If the Andrew Slack squad wants to produce a premiership side in a few years those year 10s and 11s need to be preparing now - gym and diet!!!! If you've watched enough Villa rugby like myself you'd know size is a problem, tired of seeing lanky 75kg second rowers running around!!! In terms of this year I can definitely see Villa giving a few teams a run for their money and stringing a few wins together, if a premiership is what they want they need to look at the next few years as an opportunity to develop a powerhouse it's happened once in 2010 and it can happen again!!!
