If it was he passed, better than anything we have there.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

I seem to remember tigers have beaten both of these teams recently.
During the intentional break we did, a full contingent of players would be a different story!!

That logic also cuts the same way with tigers who were also missing international players.

Disagree. Everyone has an off day. He's probably bit flat post six nations.

Last week Ben was outplayed by 38 yr old Stringer, this week Laidlaw was so much better, even commentators have it right, Ben just slows game down all the time, looking round indicating what he is going to do and most times you can read him like a book, very occasionally he does something special, but he is not best International scrum half, Murray is surely the best of the 6 Nations.

With Ben it's almost like he needs a Teleprompter telling him what to so, the speed of thought just isn't there.

The whole we lost more they most more during the 6 nations can be debated, the league doesn't lie, Saracens, Exeter and Wasps are far better teams, the table doesn't lie and I think if we played at any of them teams we would be stuffed with how we are currently playing!!

Me too, I can't put my £ on, as I am not in England. However, I might be on a roll? Can you afford to ignore it?

However, in the words of the great Ray Winston,

Please bet responsibly. :smt039
I could agree with you...but then we'd both be wrong.

Ben was truly woeful today. I mean so bad! Owen William was pretty terrible as well.
Hell of a come back though, just the second part of the second half we switched off.
Manu, Betham (apart from that pass), the Evans kid, O'Connor, Barrow, Kitch and Veaniu were all very good. Harrison changed the game so much to the better.

Really sorry to say that that's an accurate assessment right now. There was one really obvious occasion where he waited for an age with the ball at the back of a ruck; no Tigers player moved; Gloucester rearranged their defence as he waited. He gave Owen Williams a tough day.

57 points conceded v Sale and Gloucester. We just have so much work to do. Got to tighten things up dramatically from now on in.

OK we still have some weapons. Have to say IMO Croft is way off the pace and I wouldn't start him next week. As others have said Thacker at 1st receiver is a bad idea.

Great spirit to win, but not near silverware at the moment.
