will 4 wins be enough for tigers?

Post by burly bill mclaren » Sun Nov 11, 2007 6:22 pm

tigers have 2nd hardest group after munster/wasps/scarlets/clermont

so 3 wins at home which id expect plus bonus over edinburgh and leinster and away win in edinburgh. will these 4 wins be enough in your opinion, or is a win in toulouse also essential?

I think you have to assume 'yes' at this stage, as we cannot rely on teams doing us a favour.

The Ospreys showed last year that just one away loss can be enough to tip you out if you don't get maximum points at home.

Ospreys failed with 20 points last season. If we get 21 it should if history is anything to go by be enough. However that's 4 bonus point wins and a losing point in Toulouse. A big ask :smt018

Is 4 wins enough?

Cockers said after yesterdays loss we now need to win all 5 remaining group games. I csn't help but think he's right so last year we ahd to win away in Mubster, this year Toulose.

We are capable but have to be right on top of our game. Yesterday showed we need more invention in the backline and when we drive through the forwards do it with several players / whole pack not just ones and twos.
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!

mighty toulouse are beatable at home as llanelli an leinster proved the last few yrs. But it they did it with the backs mainly, tigers may nee to mix it a bit to win out there as Im sure they can do.

Mighty Touolouse were less then brilliant away to Edinburgh either with the latter under the guise of a former unpopular England coach. Now who could that be? :smt001 :smt001

We need to clutch at any straws. Lets try and win them all now.

DW is right, we only lost one game last year and didn't make the quarters! :smt022
But your three home games should be reasonably comfortable, possibly with the exception of Leinster who shocked me and most of you it would seem, with the performance they gave on Saturday.
Toulouse are nowhere near the team they were, so a win in France is also more likely than it has been in seasons passed.

If we think 4 wins will be enough then we're struggling - Leinster will be looking for 5 :smt010
