Denton,Eastmond superb! Scrum struggling till Feao replaced an injured Maafu and destroyed their TH first scrum. Manu anonymous,Ford a mixed bag some superb kicking out of hand,one from a penalty he embarrassingly overcooked! May kicked an amazing end over end kick to touch and our back play has been superb at times! Lineout still a lottery and turning ball over way,way too often!

Tigers commentary saying the replacements were tactical. So shouldn't be anything too serious for Ma'afu.

Manu did plenty for his first 40.
Couple of huge trucks and he held the defence most of the time which allowed Eastmond to put in a motm display.

What have the Ford family done to upset you? Scarcely a post goes by without you having a dig at one of them!

It was a bit of a tame game, the only time Irish got pumped was when they felt one of theirs was taken out late after kicking through and they scored pretty soon after, other than that it was comfortable for Leicester before the big changes.
Some of the Irish players did very little, their 5 was little more than a spectator only interested in piling onto vulnerable players at the breakdown and compared to the Premiership it was little more than a training exercise.
Leicester should be very interested in Irish' Josh McNally in my opinion.
