Looks solid enough to do a job on Glaws provided we keep it tight.

I expect an away win with no bonus point.
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!

That's the best team we can put out at the moment given our injury situation and we will need to be on our top form to win at Glaws. I see that Guscott has us down for a win if we have our England players, so a win it will be then.I expect Glaws to throw everything at us , but they are disrupted with the injury to their captain.We showed last week we can mix it with the best so a win is something I am quietly confident about,though it could be close.

COME ON YOU TIGERRRRrrrsssss

Poor Niall Morris must be wondering what he has to do to play. :smt017 He's played well for the last couple of weeks but gets dropped as soon as Murphy is fit.I'd have kept Morris in the team and left out Hamilton. But then again I guess that Hamilton is one of Cockerills favourites. :smt018

No specific back row cover there...I'm sure Slater will do a very good job at 6 or 8 though, but doesn't really help the balance, does it?!

We are doomed I tell ya. Why isnt Crane captain, its not fair on him! Why isnt Ford playing, he has more talent in his left toe than Flood has in his whole body!

Summary - we lost because of poor substitutions, no game plan B and we should never have let Billy leave! :smt003 :smt003
Of course this is my own opinion and other posters may have a different perceived factual viewpoint.

As it happens I'm pleased Crane isn't captain, he has no leadership qualities as he is too quiet. At least Murphy will be in the refs ear all the time.

Just a little confused here, is this the first 60 minute team from last week or the last 10 minute team? If Geordan can keep kicking them they might be more of the 10 minute team. Obviously I want them to win but I wouldn't put money on it at the moment.

Is there some kind of Bermuda triangle at WR
you can score three tries one week not see the ball next and then disappear completely of the face of the earth

Niall Morris should at least be on the bench. Then again though so should Matt Smith...its good that we have the competition but should Murphy come straight back into the team having been out for so many weeks? I have the feeling Morris is going to be looking elsewhere at the end of the season

I rate Hamilton, but not on the wing.

Why, this could be Geordies last season as a player and we may need a long term replacement. I would have thought he is ideally placed to further his career where he is.

Even in his declining years Geordan is still way ahead of anyone else on the Tigers books in the Full Back role . Tait may fit the bill if ever he is fit enough to play ( which I doubt ), whilst Morris has shown nothing that is at all above average in his showings to date . Perhaps Johnnie May from Glaws or Arscott from Exeter ?

A bit harsh on Morris. He needs some work but he certainly has the talent.

When he does come good (odds on he will do) the Irish will be after him to return.
