Exeter lad We just need Serli and tatupu back! We need that extra impact in the backs. Because in my opinion at the moment when passing through the backs there's just not enough penetration like there was when those 2 where playing. Where nadolo when you need him
Good point Exeter lad, and as Mabolza also said, the loss of the injured players is really beginning to bite. Without Nacker we don't break the line, we don't have the unpredictability that Tatupu gives us when he is there, without Arscott we don't seem to be able to run the ball back effectively at the opposition when they have kicked it to us. The lineout was poor yesterday (and at Wasps according to reports, I wasn't there) without Hanks, undoubtedly our best lineout player (possibly our best player). The scrum also seems to have been pinged repeatedly in the last two games, since Brett Sturgess went out with a long-termer. That's rubgy, we'll get them back and until then we just need to get behind the lads who are playing. Part of it is down to us as the 16th man too; the atmosphere at the Leicester and Perpignan games was much better than yesterday, there's no point denying that. But all this disappointment at losing one game, when a winning streak has to end sometime, shows where we are and how far we've come.
