Tigers need to avenge that woeful reverse fixture. We need to be direct, we need to be simple, we need to be lead on the field well and we need to be patient. If Sam Harrison had been patient in the reverse fixture, I think Thacker would have driven over from the maul for the winning try.
Completely agree. Direct, simple, and accurate.
Yay someone actually agrees with me for once 😂😂, add to that another rampaging Bateman try and I think we will be in good stead.
Well you wanted a rampaging Bateman try...

Great offload from Youngs.

Tait is an area of real weakness. He was great last weekend but looks a liability this week. Making the case for Worth all by himself.

They certainly seems to be targetting Tait at the moment, hopefully we can get him a little more space. He's been sound in defence though

Tait struggling in both defence and attack - Bateman making the case for the 12 jersey when Genge returns!

Not everyone can cope so well with that many calories. Also think of the cost!!!

Sound in defence? He got stepped by Waller the Wuss loosehead. Waller is no Bateman either. Tait's positioning has been very good but he's really struggling. The brain is still sharp but the body not so much.

Has Manu touched the ball yet? We need to up the intensity 2nd half and continue to kick well.
First up tackles need to improve. They have 19 year olds at 10 and 12, surely we must target that channel.

Stop the fancy loops and just run straight and hard.

was that not hands in the ruck rather than a Manu knock on?

Loving Bateman on the wing, never mind Genge not getting back in May might have his place in danger!

We may well win this and win well, but there are certainly some things to work on with general handling...

these box kicks have just a bit too much distance on them right now

Breathless defence, but why didn't we kick it clear after Magalouf had turned it over????
