Fantastic performance from the lads. That was proper Leicester- something that has been missing for a while. Bottle it and take it on to next season. Phenomenal from Youngs x 2, Tait, Genge, TV and everyone to a man. Out on their feet at the end. Farewell to several much-loved players but they can leave with extreme pride. Well played wasps- the most exciting and best side all season. No complaints.

Agreed, cracking game and result was fair for the season. Proud of the lads and looking like a real Tigers team again. Now need to take that forward into next season (I'm sure we would have won that game if at Welford Road).

Can't help but want Exeter to win next weekend though. :smt003

very well played. Small margins, did we get all of the 50-50 decisions - no. Did we have more key players missing than they did? Yes, but to come so close as massive underdogs away from home is a great achievement. That and the anglo welsh isn't a bad season - we just need to turn up in Europe next year. Come on the Chiefs!

I'm hoping for a 0-0 next week

Proud to support Tigers - what an effort, unlucky in the end.

Am abroad and could only follow it on line. Sounds like a tremendous match and the lads did us proud. Can't wait for next season - bet other teams are taking note.

Just got home from The Ricoh feeling so proud of the whole team and amazing support. Just a few 50 50 calls went against us and Luke Hamilton, Barrow and Cole going off cost us. Roll on next season.

Proud doesn't do it justice what the team as a whole put into that game today was nothing short of passion for the club and the supporters of this great club of ours. Everyone of you guys out there today should be proud of what you did. You put on a display of all we as supporters know was a Tigerish performance.
For that l thank you, to Freddie & Owen & all the others who won't be with us next season. I say this you will always be Tigers in your hearts.

+1 :smt023 Yet to see the game but bummed out to see the score!! Dai Young praised the Tigers, I believe he was a bit relieved? Great to see the Tiger turn the season around from a bad year. Shame not to see them at Twickers next week.

Wow what a performance, Very well done Tigers, that defense at the end in particular, what a shame we could not hold on. I thought the ref had a shocker, its ok saying he wanted to let game flow but he missed so many forward passes, knock ons etc.

Well done Tigers, the supporters chants were greater than the Wasps canned pa noise. Luke Hamilton played a very good covering game and like Barrow and Cole they were dead on their feet. Joe Simpson was aggressive several times to Ben Youngs and tried to wind up Gengie too. Great match to watch but the Referee was only 3/10 still cannot understand first penalty when viewed against others in the game by Wasps. Betham 1 Wade 0 :smt038 Many thanks to the team and a great cheer for Freddie, Owen,Jack, & Fraser + any others leaving the great family of Tigers. :smt039

Yeh i don't get why people like Flatman are asking why did Cole come off.

Cole looked exhausted and a exhausted prop can = a big gap in the defence.
