Not pretty

We look hopeless at the restarts, which is unfortunate as there have been plenty of them...

I know Ospreys are clear favourites but the commentary on Sky is disgusting. At least learn the players names- it's not rocket science. Still haven't mentioned Armes' name after scoring try. They haven't a clue who is who. Really wound me up.

first couple of games Robinson showed promise but not at present,why only liitle more than an academy side put could be the biggest lost to the sprey's yet.
osprey's with 16 first team internationals away still can field 10 more on a international weekend.surley this make's the wage cap laughable!! :smt009

Armes playing well, Ford playing well (apart from a missed tackle), Spice looking ok

Pause in play, Hollah coming on - should get interesting

Tigers scrum minced twice in a row - penalty for Ospreys, going for another try but comes to nothing this time

Half time

HT.

Well, actually, apart from a 10minutes blitzkrieg from the Ospreys in which they scored 4-5 tries, its actually been pretty even. The scrum is struggling a bit, but the lineout is pretty even. The breakdown is a good contest, and the forwards are making good ground. We are having handling problems though, and the ball has barely been beyond Forsyth. The back 3 have only had ball in hand from kicks.

It may be all about pride now, but 1 or 2 scored to no reply, and its game on.

I can see why Robinson has not made the starting 22 in the premiership, pretty poor performance. Is Hipkiss playing? I'd have thought as a senior player he ought to setting an example.
Some of the youngsters are working hard but are getting overwhelmed at times. I know the conditions are poor but they might occasionally try a little width.

Hard for Hipkiss to set an example when he isnt given the ball. Maybe he should offer himself as an option at 10/12 more often?

Lets not be too critical, this is essentially a championship level team, plus Hawkins and Hipkiss.

We do have a choice, particulary when we choose to play an extra game is aus during internationals with a smaller and certainly less well balanced squad. Injuries can't be accounted for but it seems to me we always have more than the average
