My god - watch the replay - draw a line from the end of the ruck (BFG -following Italy’s interpretation of the ruck vs England a couple of seasons ago I think World Rugby would call it a ruck) Lawes was offside and then the ruck moved forward a foot or two and Lawes was even more in front of the end...
He wasn’t behind the rear feet of the ruck when the ball was picked up. Just before the pick up the ruck moves forward, Lawes needed to step back to stay inside. He didn’t, he was offside. Barnes is an idiot
I don’t think the loss of points for Tigers is George giving up 3 points (like today at 7-3 down) I think it is poor captaincy and not recognising that line out/mauling is so abject that scrumming or 3 points is by far the best option. Been said before on this forum but TY is not the best option for...

So why don’t the team (and coaches) accept it’s such an obvious weakness (which it quite clearly is) and absolutely forget kicking to the corner because it’s a waste of time (particularly when you combine line out weakness with our mauling weakness) and capitalise on scrum strength (when we have it)...
Said exactly the same last week - line out is poor and then if we actually win the ball the maul is even worse. Today we won 3 scrum penalties in the first half which we should have capitalised on but I honestly don’t think we have enough players in our team who are able to think how to win a game w...
The fawning over Cips is just boring. Made at least 4 mistakes in the first half and not a squeak from the commentators. He was better 2nd half and did what any good fly half would do and they started gushing. Austin being the worst - bore off. As for running out of your 22 - there is a time and a p...
Yes Sandy Park is a difficult place to play rugby but it’s the manner of the performance. Same errors as last season - line out , poor defence, unable to keep hold of the ball due to basic errors. Frustrating to put it mildly
Absolute rubbish - line out a shambles , tactics just bizarre. Why not play straight into Exeter’s strengths by kicking the ball away. The few times we have kept the ball more than 1 phase Denton and others have broken the gain line.

Was using Kalimafoni as an example - however I think my main point stands. Also 4-5 of K’s carries were from kick offs (maybe Wasps and Sarries he didn’t return kick offs) rather than us using him as a tool to get over the gain line. Seemed like our main weapon was putting Hamilton at centre from li...
