sadly Leicester City cannot win the title next week and Manchester United are useless Mancs.

Is there a reason other than availability as to why they went to the City ground and not the Ricoh?
City can win the title against Swansea ..
City win this week, spurs lose, City are 10 clear...With 4 Games left

City Beat swansea on the sunday, 13 clear.

Spurs with 4 games left

Despite Dan Carter I think we stand a real chance of progression. I regularly watch the French Top 14 on Sky and their pack is definitely vulnerable in both set pieces, i.e. the scrum and the lineout. We must show extreme discipline particularly in our own half and not give away silly penalties which was Toulon's undoing last Sunday, we'll probably get an Irish or South African referee and they are usually strict on two areas, not rolling away and the offside rule. Then who knows it might be Lyon here we come on Saturday the 14th of May.

Why would there be a South African ref ?

A simple scan at Racings results doesn't tell me much. They took a real pasting at Montpelier recently but have beaten Stade and Bordeaux away for example - and sit 3rd in the top 14 with 14 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses. It will help that they are travelling to the UK.

Pity we have Saints away in the week between now and the game. A real crunch match, local derby, game that defines their season and one you'll probably see a few injuries in.

Racing away to Toulouse which is pretty important given the standings... but not quite the magnitude of our fixture. If only Worcester was next week and Saints end of the month...

There a few ringers in that team, like Joe Rocco for example.

Anyway, their pack might be vulnerable but Tigers aren't exactly shining in that department either. Having watched the two games back to back yesterday, I think Tigers would have won an encounter with R92 based on that performance. Nottingham is practically a home fixture so you'd have to say that Tigers go in favourites.

It would help a lot to have some AP momentum going in to the semi-finals. A win v Saints this weekend must be the start of that process.

Tigers are just a couple of players short of being a really good side
We need a back up best quality nasty prop, hooker, and replacement Full Back
Our back line is to die for, Veainu Betham Tuilagi Goneva Burns Youngs
Thacker is brilliant -----except in the scrum and poor Marcos is paying the price
Against Racing that scenario could unfold massively
Yes , Sarries have had it their own way all season, and for them to keep going upwards is a massive demand on them-and luck
Wasps could easily beat them, fancy us and Wasps in Lyon.
As long as we sort the set piece

Just a short precision :

It is not anymore Racing Metro 92 but Racing 92. Métro withdrew their support I don't know why, perhaps when they realised that they could not fill in a carriage with Racigne supporter and his dog. :smt003

What's the capacity at Nottingham? I know it is featured somewhere on google or on the forum but I am a fat, lazy exhausted s*d today! :smt002

I think it holds around 30500. I'm not sure we will fill it though unless Racing bring plenty. Massive football match the same day.

Yes and they are quite expensive I would say.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

£35 for the cheapest adult ticket, and these are behind the posts is a bit on the high side

£35... meh I'll take it. It's no more than what you'd pay for a similar seat at Saracens. Could be worse.

No way this is going to come even close to selling out though.
