Always said give J Ford a chance but at the end of the day he is a championship standard player. Really can’t expect anything more from him and the club should be ashamed of their recruitment.

Unbelievable to say, but Manu is a wretched liability now. Ford is like O Connor, out of his depth. Heaven help the Tigers fans. Thank heaven Ford removed...

The North Korean propaganda machine is in full steam, Tigers Matchday Live saying that Joe Ford played a strong game :smt017

J Ford was awful, started okay with some nice kicks. But plays far too deep and doesn’t get anything going forwards. Dropped the balls loads of times which just gifts Gloucester back possession.

Mulipola also looking like he has never recovered from his injury. Painfully slow and will never be the player he once was.

Brendan O’Connor sounds like he is having a good game

Surely after last year when at least there seemed to be pockets of quality, and still the Coaches got binned, that this year when we are arguably much worse, then the current job lot should get the chop as well. The lack of any fluency, the lack of any seeming game plan, is embarrassing to any self respecting Tigers supporter.

O’Connor has probably been the only player who has looked any good for Tigers. Made some metres ball in hand and some crucial turnovers.

Everyone else have been terrible. No one else 4-8 would make any premiership teams on current form. No one!! Shows how poor the once proud Tigers pack have become.

That feeling when our 20 year 9 coming on for his prem debut makes more of a impact running round the edges of the ruck than our forwards do.

Simmons + Toomua look way way better than Harrison + Ford to me, Thought Ford had one of his better games this season though

Don't worry everyone, I'm sure MO'C will have them working really hard on the training ground this week.

Hopefully that hard work will make up for the lack of physicality, intensity and accuracy.
I saw Marika Vunibaka play
