In particular the Centre who got hit by Kalamafoni as he was going down, regardless of legality, he just shook it off and got on with the game, no milking it.

Also Will Welch on his 200th.

I am delighted at the win against a team above us in the table and at 13-14 I thought the tide had turned.

Good luck for the rest of the season.

I don’t wish to see punishment for that tackle
But I bet there is a citing for it.

Cheers Stopsy. Hoped we would give you more of a game but they seemed to be doing some daft stuff today for some reason. Your lot looked much more composed than other games I have seen them play this season so maybe for the ??th season in a row you will motor up to the top four after an iffy start. It seems to be a regular Tiggers trait & must be somewhat frustrating for the supporters.

I think the Kalamafoni tackle was a penalty only. Sir applied common sense not referring it to the TMO but it was still shoulder (if I remember correct) to face even if it was accidental. You can see it from both sides. If it was on a Leicester player I'm sure they would have wanted something for it.

Sadly NF, if it was on a Leicester player then they most likely would have got something for it. The incident reminds me of a few seasons ago when Ally Hogg had a piece of his ear ripped off and the ref took no action. Accidental is no defence.
Oh, the ref that Wayne Barnes.
Once again he appeared to be swayed by the 'big' club syndrome as we did nt seem to get the rub of the green on a number of occasions.- not that it would have affected the result, George Ford gave us a masterclass today behind a dominant pack.
