Evans and Genge impressed me when they came on.
The real interesting match is Exceter vs Wasps. Next week we would normally put a weakened side out. But of there is a chance we can climb the table and avoid Sarries away in the semis. So would you put a strong or weak side out away at Bath?
Exeter are perfectly capable of losing both of their last 2 matches - Wasps are playing for a home semi and Quins will probably be playing for Champion's Cup inclusion. So - we may have everything to play for!

And if the planets aline and
Wasps and Exeter Draw with no BP's.
Wasps fail to get anything V Irish (LOL)
Exeter fail to win V Quins
Tigers get a TBP V Bath

We would go into 2nd.

And we did it despite Garner as ref, and despite his incompetence and those of his assistants :smt018 :smt018

Well I simply cannot believe how all of the officials including the TMO can accept payment for their disgraceful collective attempt at officiating. Suffice to say they are incompetent at best and blind at worst :smt013

We agree about something! So many plain awful decisions - my fave was the missed penalty for Wuss when Dan got pinged for being held down, despite lying on his back and not attempting to play the ball or obstruct. It was right in front of me and even more obvious on replay.

Comfortable win against a much improved Wuss, Barf next week will tell us what state of mind we are in, win that I fancy we can win the lot.

So, despite Premiership Rugby giving us more than our fair share of duffer refs this season we have reached the semis yet again!
Now, for next season can we please have our share of the decent officials, please :smt023

Nice little cameo by Genge today. He looks impressive and is a handful in the loose too. So glad Will Evans got a try too.

All the subs performed well yesterday espically Genge and Evans but the one guy I want to mention is Bateman.
I think he has had a raw deal. He is a really good all round player. Strong in the tight (our scrum always improves when he is on the pitch) and good in the loose also.
OK he has not to the twinkle toes of 'Flash Harry" but he is an effective carrier and tackler. SInce his return from injury he has had little game time and I cannot remember him starting. Yesterday he certainly out shone Leo.
I would like to see him starting with Marcos and Dan and see what damage they could do. Poor Marcos seems to have to always play with weeker scrummaging hooker these days and I think it is taking its toll on him.

Yep, I remarked how dynamic he was for a guy that looks like a 'traditional' front row. IMO a keeper.
