Cracking write up lepi! all of that is spot on! As it as always been with Falcons we never seem to be able to put in a 80 minute performance! However tigers intensity did increase on the 50 minute ish mark I though they're lines speed at times was good Delaney tried to run side round them and just got hammered and turned over...

Socino does look a lot leaner still a powerful player! Looks the summer off has helped him!

Tigers always slow starters but always manage to grind out the Ws

We should of won! Move on to Gloucester,

Very very very tough place to go for us! Hopeful of something

As you say, our kicking from hand is criminal and has been for years. I do not believe for one minute that Delaney/ Youngs/ Hammer are that bad at kicking from hand, it has to be a directive from the coaches.
There were a couple of incidents on Sunday when we repeatedly hit it up in the forwards, pulling in defenders, only for the ball to go to the 10 who inexplicably hoofs it down the full backs throat.

I also want to see the team to play with intensity for the 80, how many times have we been within touching distance of a win with 10 mins to go, to only then decide to play with urgency and pace? It seems the players take matters into their own hands and up the tempo.
