Fitzgerald ahead of Williams and McCaffrey. Thacker dropped from the squad completely.

The mind boggles sometimes at our coaches. Still at least its his last game.

Kitto must be injured, I like White but I doubt you'd have him on the bench for this game unless you had to.

Not sure how often Saints have got that pack out but it looks very strong.

Blown away by a strong 2nd and 3rd row.

Luke did a good job in keeping King Louie quiet at our place almost forgot he was playing, let's hope for a re-run.

After last Sunday's shift I'm not surprised some are getting to sit on the bench a bit .. shame about Harry though

This pantomime; just put it .. behind you!

Looking at the size of their pack I think we need every bit of grunt/size we can get & HT probably knackered after last Sundays game! Kitto injured so White in, worried Saints will target Tait & Veainu can expect a lot of Myler bombs as a welcome back!
Saying that I think we will get something from game if we can hold on & tire their pack out, fingers crossed!!

I hope 10 & 12 channels will be open to us but otherwise just batter hell out of them. I am really looking forward to seeing Genge against Brookes.
First game back for cc? Hope his inner monkey is under lock and key

Don't think it's CC 's first game .. might be his first start

I am a bit surprised as all 5 games are 'must win' so we should be putting out our best available side and our best available side includes Thacker, IMHO, of course.

On paper Saints are stronger, especially in the forwards back 5. Our half backs are superior (unless Ben has one of his off days). I'd be happier about the backs if we had Owen partnering Maxime from the start - Tait is becoming a bit of a liability in defence. I shall be pleasantly surprised if we take this one.

I said the same re their pack before the game. But now ...... Stanko effect?

Tait proved you right. Again!

Wrong, wrong, wrong. Forwards all fantastic. Veainu magic. Possibly right about Tait, but never so glad to be wrong.

Ouch, Mr Stops. That hits home. Most pleased for Kitch who has had a bad press on here. Played a blinder.

YBY obviously very confused today about which shirt he was wearing.

Sarries beat Bath tomorrow and then top 4 finish 100% in our own hands.

Best game I've seen from Ben for Tigers this season.

Barrow and Genge already standing out as having true Tigers grit.

Superb from our pack. That showed me. Would still love picamoles though!

Would love Picamoles and would love to be keeping Burns and Williams.

Really concerned about 10 next season. Massive respect to two players showing such commitment and application to a club they are shortly to leave, especially as at least one of them is unhappy about the manner of his departure.

Top Tigers!

I think all teams need two top class 10s (and 9s) these days. Both Freddie and Owen both stepped up today. Kickers win games.

+1.

Which other Prem club matches us for quality depth at 10?

In addition to what's already been said, I'd like to give a shout out to Thommo, who had another great game. He dealt with the threat of North better than anyone in recent weeks. I hope the watching Eddie Jones was impressed ahead of the tour of Argentina.

No, Stopsy, you only read it once. And I regret the usage, though there was an element of truth at that time. Would be grateful if you would let it lie rather than rubbing it in.
