5 points in it now as Bath score another try. We need the next score even if it's only a penalty.

The ref's decided you don't win anything with kids...
No, not that one!

Remember, whatever you do to the smallest of the backs you do to his prop, and you can't avoid the rucks and mauls forever...

Such a shame our youngsters have been robbed by a truely incompetent performance by a referee who was intimidated by the crowd into a series of poor decisions. If the coaches manage to hold their tongues after that they'll do very well.

Our youngsters were fantastic, scrum aside.

What a shame. At least we got 2 points and came very close to beating a strong Bath side. Well done lads :smt038

Bath impact off the bench with Mercer and Stooke plus their front row too much.

9 teenagers in the match day squad great result with 2 points

Well all I can is what was that all about, the comedy referee under 12 biology teacher was making it up, 5 seconds left and Burns (the child) kicks it out and clearly the game was still on, just like the first half, I am sure we were 41 mins in and the ref gave a restart, on the positive that was a superb performance by a young tigers team!!

Came close. A lot of our young players really played well. Wells, the Thacker's, all the back-row and all the backs were great.
It was simply the scrum that lost us the game, not just the end but throughout.

Did I hear somewhere that it's the same sir that Steve Diamond is in hot water for expressing an opinion on?

The crucial ref failing was allowing the Bath front row, especially Auterac, to do what they wanted. Auterac had his head under and into Thacker in nearly every scrum.

The ref ruined that game at the end after a pretty decent performance, and as for Burns I've lost a lot of respect for him now, whats the point in doing what he did at the end when its an LV cup game and you nearly got shown up by some teenagers, should have been embarrassed not showing off

The ref that Diamond had an issue with is the (and I'm being polite) useless Craig Maxwell-Keys. I believe the ref for this match was Greg Macdonald. They tend to use the group stage of this competition to "develop" up and coming refs.
