Racing by 15 - 20 points.

Comfortably.

Tigers couldn't spoil a party if they were the only ones invited.

Europe is gone. Field the same team as at Castres again, get the AWC out the way and then concentrate on getting a win at Glaws

Even with our full strength side I think we will be comfortably beaten. :smt012

Also to get some bums on seats, put out another A team and supporters really will be reconsidering their Season Tickets!

Roly it’s a French team away from home, the only French team that have managed to win away from home was La Rochelle.

It has to be the strongest side possible. If nothing else the Tigers need to build some confidence though game time

Unless we want continuity for the Absolutely Worthless Cup, there is no other reason for us to field a weak team, Racing will certainly be at full-strength as they seek to qualify top of the pool, we need to play the best team possible, they will be getting a 2 week rest during the AWC

If MO'C sticks to his plan.......hang on :smt042 :smt043 plan?! :smt044 .......then he'll select a very similar team to last time. If SC has any influence - thinking 'bums on seats' - we might get closer to the 1st XV

Why risk injuries on pointless games? If MOC plays the full team and ends up with a number of long term injuries the critics will be out in force. I'm disappointed with this season along with many others but my loyalty to Tigers stays.

MOC is between a rock and a hard place. Not that I have much sympathy. Given the Hobsons choice I think he will go for a fairly strong team.

It's meaningless as far as Europe is concerned for us but I think we just need to win so have to put out a fairly strong team to get a result.
