What is all this tosh about the Saints being favourites? It is KO rugby FGS! He who blinks loses it! The Tigers are more than capable! It will be a Tigers Quins final!!

It could well happen, two over confident home teams who are both looking over their shoulders at the European finals as well, I agree Tigers v Quins could well be the final.

One point Jim, you can't beat anyone, you haven't us yet, pedantic I know, but on your day you have not beaten us.

Look it's easy to win this one - just kick it to Myler in the 22.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

I think they are called bookmakers. :smt002

7/5 Tigers - get on if you disagree as that is effectively a 2 hour 140% interest rate offer.

I'd be a lot more comfortable if Allen was available and playing at 12. He makes the rest of the backline function around him. I'd prefer Williams at ten and Flood at 12 before playing Bowden.

We are fractions over 6/4 now on the exchanges with plenty more money around for the Saints than us. As much as I favour the home team tonight if our price drifts much more I will be forced to play. I thought 11/8 was about the right price so won't allow 13/8 to appear and not have some. Any bigger than that would just be plain madness and would result in a proper bet. :smt018

Starting to get bad vibes about tonight - get the feeling we don't play very well on Friday nights (can think of a few Friday night horror shows in the recent past). Please someone - tell me I am wrong and I don't have anything to worry about? :smt022

We have nothing to fear, everyone(well J.Guscott) is tipping us to lose, they on the other hand not only have the demons of us always beating them, but they need some momentum going forwards for the Amlin final. They could well have one eye on that final, enough of a weakness for us to exploit and there's no one better at finding a weakness than the Tigers

COME ON YOU TIGERRRrrrrsssss

It's squeaky bum time as someone famous once said. Can we beat Saints? Of course we can. Should we beat Saints? Damn straight we should! Will we beat Saints? Erm...yeah...hope so!

I'll be sat in front of my TV, bouncing up and down, shouting advice (they can definitely hear me, and when they do what I tell them, they win, honest), and keeping my 4 year old awake. In fact, since some of his first words all those years ago were "Come on Tigers!", keeping him awake might be the right thing to do.

Admittedly it was a while ago now but -
A heroic performance by a young Leicester team brought the Premiership champions a famous win over South Africa on Friday night at Welford Road.
