The breathing space is now gone.

As expected Leicester won and got a try bonus point along with it while looking impressive, we've got too respond by at least putting in a performance tomorrow that fills us with confidence and we can take forward, I also heard the commentator on the tigers bris game say this weekend is the last weekend without the 6 nations stars.

Yes, a bit like Irish, Bristol authored their own downfall but Leicester deserved their 5 points.

And Saracens have the 5 points wrapped up already. Great.

Sarries are an irrelevance really imo. They are always going to finish above us. It's more important from our point of view that they keep Worcester from picking anything up. Despite their good start, they are only 5 points ahead of us.

Clearly none of it matter unless we don't start picking up some wins. If we can find a way to start picking up points again, the rest of the league will take care of itself and we won't have to worry about other results.

I'm just dreading that tomorrow will be like Saracens v Worcester is now

I'd like to think there will be some reaction from the last two games, but it's definitely the fear. Just need to stay in the game early and try to match them up front, which is much easier said than done.

I find it quite worrying that Gloucester put 40 on Worcester and Saracens are going to put at least 50 on them and we could only manage a measly 6 points and never looked like scoring a try.

Didnít help with 1 yellow card and 1 red. Playing with 15 players was always going to stretch a team with less players.

Is going to be a struggle against Exeter and Northampton but then have Gloucester and quins up to the half way point of The season. Need to try and find a way of picking up at least a point from 90% of our games as they will amount up to an extra couple of wins at the end of the season

Weíll compete with

Quins
Worcester
Leicester
Wasps
Bristol

And we may well shock a few others.

There are 5 premiership matches over 6N as well and we arenít impacted as others, probably lose Dell and thatís it. Have faith!

That's what I always say, you need to keep your points tally ticking over even if it's a bp it will be massively disappointing that we started this batch of 3 games with 12pts and will probably finish it with 12pts

I just hope the point(s) we lost due to the appalling decision at the end of the Sarries match doesn't make a difference or the red card v Bristol - which while certainly stupid looks like maybe it should have been a yellow instead as the review board found there was no shoulder to head contact but shoulder to shoulder.

Wonder how Wee Dunc lost his teeth then.
