Sale v Tigers

Post by tigerburnie » Thu May 01, 2014 8:05 am

Potentially last away game of the season, if we don't win it. Little in the press regarding injuries, other than Sale will be missing their skipper. We need to keep Cips quiet as he seems to have hit a rich vein of form and the game is ours for the taking. The perenial Cueto is another danger not to be ignored, he seems to be enjoying himself too, so no silly kicks from hand this week.
I expect us to dominate the set piece, just need to keep on top of the discipline and take our chances when presented.

COME ON YOU TIGERRRrrrrsssss

I think we will win this game, partly because we have to, but more importantly because generally we have better, classier players in most positions. Therefore if we play to our potential and keep our discipline we will win.

If Crane is unfit I hope TTTE plays, Gibson is not an 8. If Cockers plays Slater at 8 (which could happen) we'll really know that TTTE is completely out of favour. I sincerely hope not, he's been a brilliant player for Tigers and deserves to leave on a high, not in ignominy.

Really looking forward to the game!!

:censored: or bust game for us. Interestingly, a little bird has told me Bath are struggling with injuries, a crisis building; it may be just due to a bet, but the source has been accurate so far.

The only good news for the Tigers is that Dan Braidy has just undergone a knee op so won't be playing. He is such a big influence with their forwards. Otherwise Tigers will have to be at Top Form on Saturday.

I've picked up somewhere that Mark Cueto won't be playing for Sale through injury - but I cannot find my source! :smt009

I agree but I think the best way to keep Cipriani down is to keep Dwayne Peel under wraps as I just think Peel is a major enabler in Cipriani's return to form.

Could be wrong :smt003
