New Years w/end games (spoilers)

Worcs holding Sarries at Allianz at HT (17 all). Not ideal time for them to come into form as far as we are concerned...especially at their place.

If you think we were bad last night, be thankful you aren't a Saints supporter!

Our "defence" last night is very similar to Saints today, non existent.

Just because Saints are so bad doesn't make me feel any better about Bath's downward fortunes.

OMG what a depressing comment to make. We are in a much better place than Saints. Yes we played badly by kicking the ball down their throats last night and let in some sloppy tries, but we were in at the death. 19 points down was the killer and we had a mountain to climb as a result. Realistically we dropped 2 points as we should have won that game on home ground and they gained 4. It is not the end of the world and I suggest you stay away from sharp objects whilst in this depression!

Saints are a real mess. They have some really good players too, itís just a bit like they only met this morning. Is it because of the training at Farleigh and Ewels not pulling his weight I wonder?

Saints were spanked on the opening day at HQ too. That's over 100 points conceded in 2 trips there this season....

The way Worcester are playing (without a star player or two), full of endeavour and spirit means unless we have a cathartic renaissance next week, we don't have a prayer. And we will not have our England contingent if I read the Telegraph rightly so we are down to our reserves, academy and journeymen against a full strength Worcester.

I didnít think that they are actually playing for England, arenít they just at the camp talking tactics etc? I would hope they are back.

Yay we're better than Saints (who spanked us earlier this season). That makes everything alright then. To say nothing of their Challenge Cup and Premiership trophy in recent years.

Think past trophies do not help their current plight, but you manic depressives will make any excuse to talk the club and the team down. Sad!

When are refs going to start penalizing Chiefs for constantly diving off their feet at the breakdown? Jonny Hill is one of the worst offenders - always dives into the ruck, no effort to stay on his feet, ever.

Game over - ref missed the tank blocking a defender and then joining the ruck from the wrong side!

The issue is that Tigers are pretty awful, Exe havenít even played very well. They are pushing on open doors in the Prem at the moment, so many teams in a mess. They just keep on doing what they do but this is the worst I have seen them play for a while.

Poor reffing for the BP try. Tigers drive them back, that's once, but not told, it stops again which is use it, but no, that's given as the first call. Amazing how calls go your way when you are winning so regularly.

Tigers worst run since 1965!

Pretty poor game all round.

Exeter are the best Team in England no doubt! They have shown that to have success you must perform at a high level consistently while we have shown that a lack of high level consistently brings frustration and failure. Letís hope 2018 brings a positive change to our beloved club.

Indeed. The wrist slitting is starting in earnest over there. It's hard to feel much sympathy, given their form for kicking everyone else when they're down, but they really aren't looking much lIke a team at the moment. One's heart bleeds for George, of course. Having said that, Exe were very good indeed in the second half. Slade and Nowell were a class apart.



... IMHO, of course.

Now in Honolulu

We donít have bragging rights over any team particularly after being thrashed, despite gaining late tries, in our last 3 AP matches including against Exeter. Year after year the Leicester supporters go through such despair but invariably they turn things around & finish ahead of us. I advise keeping a low profile on such matters & hope that we can turn things around.

Gloating has no place in rugby anyway IMO. We certainly tell the kids that play that it is not acceptable.

You obviously didn't visit the Dark Site when Ballsout was advising them.

That said, Leics always bounce back, especially after Christmas.
