Plus Wayne can't see a knock on. We're not quite good enough are we? A bit like watching Real Madrid v City.

Its sad to see the difference in strategy and execution. We have much to learn.

The only rubbish I'm seeing is some of the comments on here.

We made 2 errors which both led to tries. Saracens are immense and we are giving it a good go. Quite simply they are a better team than us but do not say we are rubbish!

Oh and also, the final pass for Saracens first try was forward.

Agee, lots we can and should learn fro more this. We have made too many mistakes, due to Saracens pressure, and they have capitalised every time.

Wayne Barnes not helping though!

At this level every error will be punished, Tigers just hanging on.

Saracens simple game, if attack is slowed down they simply kick and chase like hell and force errors. Tigers kicking is very poor.

Ellis9, if you think we have only made two errors, you need to learn how to count using more than one hand. Apart from the tries, we have given away possession by panic kicking as a last resort when trying to run the ball doesnt work, instead of using it as a positive tactic, and have regularly failed to gain field position or the sideline.

And that's just the kicking from hand.

I didn't say we were rubbish. I said we were not quite good enough.

No aggression from the forwards. Where was the defence for that maul ...

Need to replace our half back pairings, neither kicking well.

Soft try, unable to defend a driving maul which followed a perfect kick chase. :smt022

Don't call me a doom monger. This is how it is, for all to see, JG.

And then the ball pops out of our driving maul from the line out for Sarries to gain 35m.

Both teams have made more than two errors. What I said was 2 errors have led to tries.

Baz said "same old rubbish"- I was responding to that comment.

Someone has said half backs have been poor, Ben Youngs has not been poor! He really hasn't!
