Whoever said the post match comments would be about how there are some things to address but we’d trained well and are now looking forward to Wasps wins a pound

Genge and Cole absolutely on top at the scrum - I was disappointed it took so long to get Collier (and to a lesser extent Boyce) on the pitch.

Papers today reporting how that was classic Leicester Tigers and celebrating their return to form. 

Aye, classic Tigers - get into their 22 and they will give away a penalty rather than a try.  Choose to kick it and they consider they have won 4 points off you.  When we were 20-9 down the decision to kick to the posts was wrong, our catch and drive was working well and we should have kept the pressure on.

A frustrating game to watch, not least because our players consistently failed to keep on the right side of the ref and he punished accordingly.

Cranks up the pressure on the game against Wasps.

we were poor in the loose got counter rooked several times.Which cost us momentum,Lewis to slow to release the ball meaning our ball carriers were static when they received the pass.Both front rows were more interested in dick swinging than playing for their teams.we lost to a poor Tiggers team so what does that make us.

We beat Exeter who beat Sarracens soundly so we are European champions by default.
Seriously though, we can’t win two on the trot. We lost to a poor tigers team and I think Gussie is as frustrated as much as we are. He said in an interview that they were trying all sorts of different ways to approach away games to see which was the best to get the team up for it. He must be running out of ways. That’s not good.

I assumed George Worth was a back rower or lock the number of times he counter-rucked or caused us problems at the breakdown.

Murley's stats are phenomenal, in attack and defence. No wonder he's getting game time.

Agree with RR Murley is showing real promise, and Grimsby Quin spit on about the front rows.
We’ve showed some real promise this season, we get our hopes up only to have them thrown away at the next game

Wasps where lousy yesterday and expect them to step up for Big game, suppose we just have to hang onto the hope that the team will consider it a home game and turn up
