Good game, what I saw of it. Freddie seemed to be controlling things well but Gekrdan reckoned he cramped up. Which lessens the injury worry.

Roaming the local A&E in search of wireless! Little un having done a Toomua's I fear.

Happy with any win against Barf. Well done you Tigers.

I thought Will Evans was excellent and the difference after he came off was clear, stand out young player for me by far.

Possibly best genuine 7 in England already?

Did Croft get on and, if so, how did he get on(if you'll excuse the pun)?

Agreed but this is the third time this season that new players making their first appearance get yellow carded in the first few minutes - JP Petersen v Ospreys,
Matt Toomua v Glasgow and now Pat Cilliers Ugh!!
Excellent play from Burns and Man of the Match Harry Thacker in the loose and scrums, his brother Charlie was on the wing as the injuries mounted.
Tom Croft had a great game in second row and so pleased to see him in the lineout & defence.
Freddie Tuilangi stopped a massive Bath rolling maul and is very powerful.
Geordan, Ant Allen & Brett Deacon must be proud of the youngsters gametime tonight. Did not see Gekrdan cramp up Big Dai but Dan Bowden was good for Bath scoring against us. Good prospects for us out there on the field tonight. :smt045

Came on at HT into the 2nd row for Maksymiw. Went well, great tracking to nail their winger into touch. Finished the game, that's the main thing :smt023

Why disappointed?
thought he slowed the game down a bit too much tonight and a few of his kicks were charged down.

It'll upset a few but Thacker is a bit of a show pony for me, lets the others do the work and reminds me a little of Waldrom.
His carrying looked great but was against backs mostly which sort of says something about how his game is structured or how the team is structured for him.
The scrums were a mess with a lot going on before the feed but there was one scrum in the first half that the Bath reserve props got spot on and the Leicester scrum was absolutely smashed, this is the big danger and if it's 1st team against better or more experienced players then it's a real struggle.
I expected more from the scrum given that Balmain and Bateman were present against that Bath front row.
Freddie T didn't stop that Bath maul, the commentator Goode got the wrong man as was shown up on the replay, I thought he looked weak for that size and I'd back the smaller Thacker to be stronger in contact.
Michael Van Vuuren impressed for Bath at hooker.

:smt023 +1 minus the show pony comment. Was disappointed with FT who tackled very poorly - not T like at all

I'm proposing Cilliers for a leading part if they remake the Wizard of Oz:

My head all full of stuffin'
My heart all full of pain
I would dance and be merry
Life would be a ding-a-derry

Exactly +1 :smt023. What a numpty!! I hope he is on boot cleaning for a month. That was the fine if anyone of us did something really stupid such as that on the pitch.

Enjoyed the game, thought Thacker, Burns, Worth, Hamilton, Evans, Bateman and Wells all played well.

What a valuable player Bateman has become, playing with great skill and power right across the front row!!

We would have won easier but for injury replacements. Great to see Croft back and putting in a decent shift in the 2nd half!

Really hope Freddie is ok, he definitely has his x factor back at present, must start before OW on current form.

According to the match report:

Brady returned from his HIA for Burns, who had cramp.

So will hopefully be available. Agree about his x-factor, apart from one kick that went out on the full last night I thought he played really well.
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

Geordan said Freddie cramped up. Doh! I can only contribute via my phone these days as I get in a loop with the computer. Others have reported this. Big fingers and predictive text are a problem.
