Re: Sorry, But Swiel Is Not A 10

It's very hard to tell whether it was Robshaw or Smith going off which had the most significant impact. Certainly we seemed to lose our composure - which often seems to be the case when Swiel comes on, we tend to go a bit headless chicken. But alos our defensive alignment went to pieces as did our tackling - is that down to defensive organisation from 10, or a lack of 2 Robshaws tackling evrything in sight?

Overall I'd say it was a very enjoyable game of rugby from two sides with attacking intent who were evenly matched. Our lack of back row depth and general weakness off the bench was probably the deciding factor, although I do feel that over the 80 minutes we suffered a little more than Leicester at the hands of a ref who was woefully out of his depth.

Positives, Marcus Smith, Mike Brown much improved, good effort around the park from both locks

Negatives : Robshaw injury, lack of impact from bench, mullered in the scrums, more dopiness at lineout.

In short, the script hasn't changed much, and we'll probably go into the last match of the season with no silverware, but a shot at finishing 6th.
