Not only do I feel confident this side can win, but I'll stick my neck out and predict a try as well( though it could be that bloke penalty that scores it)

COME ON YOU TIGERRRRrrrrsssss

I'm glad Pearce has got the start. Real ball carrier. He will become a class act at number 8 over the next 12-18 months
Don't get me wrong I like what I have seen of Pearce thus far, but I'm not sure he is fit enough to be a class act at the moment. Could do with losing a couple of stones IMO and be a bit quicker around the park. He's a prospect and a work in progress and I'll be interested to see how he goes tomorrow and how long he lasts in the game.

Great to see Scully plus the others back…

Bookies have us strong favourites at 1/3 and Sale are +7 in the handicapper. I think that is about right and expect us to be about a try too good.. although we'll probably accumulate the points via the boot rather than crossing the whitewash on recent evidence!! :smt002

Agree that Pearce isnt up to full fitness as yet, but having watched him playing when he is,a big part his game is having a lot of speed and mobility, whilst still being a hefty unit. Taking off a couple more stone off would make him similar to lots of others.

I agree with this and I'll slightly tweak what I said earlier. I'd like to see Mr Pearce with better overall fitness but preferably at the same size. He probably just needs games to get him up to speed so today is a good chance for that and to see what he has to offer. His offloading is as good as I've seen from a Tigers forward in recent times.

I think this is very harsh on Roberts and Catchpole. I thogught they did very well the last couple of weeks, both in conditions that doesn't suit ball in hand rugby. I always say this but I hate Goneva at 13.

Sounds like we are camped on their line but we just cannot get it over

Sale down to 14 men for the second time.. Tigers really need to take advantage here

2nd yellow card but I think they were back up to 15 before this one

Good first half. Can't let Sale gain any impetuous in the second half. Bonus point is on.
