Well, no-one expected that. A really good game of rugby. Hats off to both teams for putting on a real show. Particularly enjoyed the Genge Vs Harrison micro battle - two forces of nature. Well played both sides. Tough luck, and go well for last few games.

Thank you folks for your gracious and sporting congrats. Say what you like about franchises in shiny stadiums etc. That game just shows the old firm derby in the east mids still produces a cracker. Great game from both teams. Personally totaly unexpected from Saints BTW but I'll take it after our season. Till the next time and hope you make the playoffs.

We were never going to win 9(?) in a row to lift the pot, so hopefully thatís the one loss out of the way.
Well played to Stains - with 30% possession and territory, winning takes some guts.

Quite depressed after the false new dawn of the last few weeks. Plenty of errors from Tigers and plenty of grunt from both sides, but guess that is what you get in a real derby game. So well done Saints, you certainly have the bragging rights until next season.

How do you know that is a false dawn?
Either it will be confirmed in the next month or so.

Hopefully Saints can carry on and beat Wasps next game and not revert back to their previous form.

Stains had more nous.

They also had the more effective wing forwards.

How ironic that Saints finally won at Welford Rd when it looked least likely to happen. It's a funny old game.

I think not getting clean ball or getting turned over at the lineout was a big contributing factor in Tigers losing the game - you had difficulties in the lineout when we met in September as well, but when I watched Tigers vs Wasps a few weeks ago, Tigers played well for the win & it looked OK, is it just inconsistent?

Tigers got what they deserved today and itís all credit to Saints for a tremendous displayed based around a great defensive effort and penetrating attack when they had the chance.
Some of their supporters how3ver were noisy, boozed up and foul mouthed below us on the terrace and although they were a small minority let their club down.

Hi Corie - very much not okay about the behaviour, and hope it was duly reported to stewards.
