Re: Tigers Match Thread

Well we won playing pretty badly against a predominantly Academy Leicester side. I suppose we should be happy but if we had lost with the experience and greater strength and weight, we should be castigated.

Our attack is virtually non existent and as for offloading, the Tigers youngsters gave us a real lesson. Our ball retention was atrocious and passing was both laboured and looped. The lineout badly misfired at times and we were saved by our scrum. Again we were knocked off the ball by these youngsters and, particularly in the first half, lost out in the physical challenges. What is it with our forwards?

Personally I thought young Green showed some great touches and Auterac should both start on Saturday and be resigned very quickly. Bayliss showed up well at times but our inability to pass through the centres meant that the dangerous Davis never saw the ball once. Otherwise we were generally very poor indeed and thankfully a inconsistent Freddie dragged us to the win. By the way, don't believe George Ford could do what FB did tonight.

Not much to celebrate about tonight IMO.
