Premiership Rugby

And in other news; Barnes is reffing the game, so do the brains at Twickers expect this to be this weekend's tough game? Barnes is usually wheeled out for the games that are likely to kick off with a bit tension.

I don't want to sound dramatic...but I think this is a must win game for us.

We have to get some momentum in the league and get some confidence in that squad after the defeats.

I wouldn't like to see us lose then have to take on Exeter, Wasps etc...that wouldn't bode well...

Agreed. We’ve not looked bad so far but we must get points.

It's just been the luck of the draw for us facing Sarries then a pent up Leicester afterwards. In both games we were really unlucky in the end. But little things cost us.

Against Sarries we didn't capitalise on the sin bins when we were in the ascendancy. At Leicester we were the team that looked like scoring the tries in the last 15 minutes but for lack of killer instinct. I counted 3 missed opportunities. Takalua try which on another day could've been awarded or we could've recycled the ball to remove doubt. Cavubati, isolating himself by going alone and then down with the ball when alone (not very clever from an experienced player) and then tackled, and Gary Graham knocking on, all within reach of the 5 metre line.

With the experience of the players we've lost last season we just need to stop getting excitable in key situations, keep it tight and protect the ball when in those positions. We lack that little bit of clinical finish we had last season in tight games. I put it down to losing our experienced campaigners Latu, Lawson, Vickers and Hogg. These guys were savvy and leaders in their own right. We just need to learn, fast.
Most importantly we're not far off. We're creating opportunities and it appears our fitness levels are more than a match for the others as we appear to finish strongly.This might actually be the difference between us and Worcester who looked very tired in the end against Sale.
We need to rectify these little areas and start putting points on teams. And please none of this heroic come from behind stuff! We're a good side. We just need to win. C'mon you Falcons!!
