Bookies have Glasgow 4/6, Tigers 5/4 with -2 point Glasgow on the handicap. Always hard to win on the road but this is a nasty group and tonight is probably our best chance of an away win.
I did say "at least"? Which might kind of hint at the fact we may need some more.

If Tigers cant beat Glasgow, then its a real battle to win every match from then on to keep up with the other Group leaders..
No it isn't.
Yes it is. We are either a team worthy of competing at the top in Europe or we are one who worries about an away game to an under strength pro 12 side.
The statement made was

This match is a MUST WIN to have any hope of getting to the Play Offs

My bold. So he was saying if we lost tonight we have no hope of getting to the play offs. That is patently not true.

Now I believe what you are saying is that we can't win tonight our hopes of getting to the final or winning the competition are in serious question - which is a much more reasonable assertion IMO. However, I'd still not want to hang all that on one game at this stage of the season.

Let's see anyhow, not long now!

Ah! A cunning plan to make the Glasgow players vomit at the KO.

Hopefully as he landed on his back he might get away with it.

Either way, this is a proper performance tonight. Bout time!

How many times are Glasgow players going to be allowed to go beyond the breakdown and tackle/hold back/interfere with Tigers players not in the ruck?

2 soft tries conceded now.

BT commentary pointing out the illegal clearing out of men not part of the ruck.

Rugby is easier when you play like american football and can clear a chanel for the ball carrier

Did anyone else see the hands in the face of Kitch after he shoved that guy over?

Poor show

Paper thin tackling. Poor defence. Tigers? More like pussy cats.

French referee's tend to miss some things that we get used to being penalties in the prem, the holding back off defenders and the early drives at lineouts would see Glasgow penalized off the field in the prem, however they deserve the lead after dominating us around the ruck
