We knew they were prettty poor before, but BT have really shown just how bad

Incorrectly I think, we carried the ball over their line, they touched it to ground = 22 drop out.
However, that's often coutned as a knock-on by the carrier, which makes it a scrum to Stade.

Fair's fair, Banas did really well to confuse the issue; but I can't really believe that ball was held up; just no evidence of grounding.

Both teams are going be knackered at the end of this; if we can hold our fitness for an extra 5 minutes, that could easily mean 10 points.

Frenetic passage with both sides chucking it around and trying to score miracle tries off first phase... Ball dropped given away both ways and then Joseph high tackled after collecting cross field.grubber from genia. We take territory from pen and fordy misses drop.goal.

We've joined them in knackeredness now; but in our 12 minutes with oxygen in our lungs, we got the 3 tries to turn it around.
Looks like it's going to extra-time now, for which I'd just about favour us... unless they get a second wind... erm...

Stade were absolutely out on their feet and we still managed to lose that game what a complete bunch of idiots in the BBW. Not a brain cell between them.

Anthony Watson missed tackle and completely butchered winning overlap. Don't bother with the lions on that basis.

Penalty in overtime 6m from the side line, 6m from touch. You can make ground at will. Tap and go for me is the obvious decision but no. Idiots all of them. I'm so angry with them.

We have so under performed in these recent games this season its untrue, even with our so called all stars back!!

They need a rocket up the back side, Ford should be put on gardening leave right now, and we had better not hear any statement from the club or the players how they will learn from this experience. It is blatantly obvious the players have NOT learnt and executed anything like what you normally expect from a professional sports team, who have every advantage and support known to man. It comes down to players wanting it more and putting in the effort required, actions speak louder than words.

Did you see how Gloucester dogged it out against a hugely physical, in form La Rochelle side and when you compare it to our efforts, there is no comparison? You have to ask why and who is responsible?

No guts, no toughness, no graft- no cigar and rightly so!!!

We will lose both our remaining league games unless the players have a true change of heart, which I cannot see happening in a thousand years at present.

We play some good rugby in patches but we do seem to lack structure & not being able to close out games is a real problem. We are shaping up as one of the teams that lots of neutrals fancy but we don't have the look of winners. Gloucester did amazingly well against a stronger French team & will be really up for their visit to the Rec.

Not a brain cell amongst them, Nopace, which with the so called talent we have available is downright disgraceful. Ford never looked remotely confident over that kick, which should never have been attempted anyway.

Blackadder and his cohorts need to sort out some of the egos and attitudes and instil some gumption and steel into his charges or he will be in a revolving door very soon.

Ford's decisions cost us the game. His decision to go for a short restart at the end was crass and irresponsible. The ball should have gone deep into the SF 25.

Never thought I would say this, but we will be better off without him.

They didn't want it so much, and under-performed so much that they only managed to come from 18 - 6 down to 18 - 25 up. Shameful performance(Sm161)

Ah, but that's the joy of blaming them for not "wanting it". As it's a made up, unquantifiable, nonsensical, bullshot term, if the team don't exactly match your expectations, (which for BoB seems to be that they're not Exeter...), you can just blame them for not "wanting it" enough.

Agree Terracehugger, we will be better off with Freddie. At least he might want to win for his home town club unlike the spoilt boy who doesn't want to be here.

Thanks George but no thanks. Shut the door behind you.

He wants to win as much as anyone but without doubt his goal kicking is a problem.

Another example of why Eddie doesn't trust George to kick for England
