Well at least the scrum is working!
Line out too.

It’s individual errors in defence killing us. If we Give the opposition 3 tries, it’s going to put pressure on your attack to score every time we get in their 22.

There is a huge confidence problem. We concede and we go to rats. It’s is almost school boy rugby. Tackling is shocking and no real attacking threat. Almost turned off...but flashman Jnr wanted to do a jigsaw so took my eye off it..
There is never any points for 2nd place...

18 missed tackles in one half! Must be some sort of record

Rubbish in attack
Rubbish in defence
Powder puff tackling
Useless at the breakdown
Terrible coaching across the board (except Stanko)
A flyhalf who would struggle to get a game for Old Bosworthians

Other than that, nothing to worry about.
I saw Marika Vunibaka play

18 missed tackles in first 40. Just can't do that.

Thats very unfair on the Old Bosworthians......
The very worst Coaching Set up in the Premiership by miles, except Stanko, and the worst No 10 in the history of Tigers.
If Murphy doesnt start with Hardwick in the second half, that shows how clueless he is.

18
Missed tackles kind of indicates that there are some serious coaching or player issues or both. That is not good enough.

Watching Joe Ford kinda reminds me when I used to take my son to under 10s rugby where the coach insisted on playing his own son at 10 when everyone else knew he shouldn’t have been anywhere near the starting line up. I used to feel sorry for the kid mind.

Dan Cole - gone past his best. All he can do is push in the scrum. Offers nothing else!
Joe ford - the worst fly half I have ever seen in a Tigers shirt. Should have never signed him.
Gareth Owen - poor defence, looks unfit.
Adam Thompson - offering nothing. Nothing in attack and nothing in defence.

It looks like we just go out with no attack plan and just to play what’s in front of them. The players on the pitch are not good enough to do that. Said it when O’connor went. We need a whole new coaching set up. Bakewell has not done what was expected of him. Deacon has not got a clue how to coach at this level.
Come on you tigers!

We've conceded three tries from three individual errors. Otherwise we dominated most of the first half.

Do you think Murphy coached Joe Ford to kick away the ball when we have an overlap? Do you think Deacon coached Ford or Owen to jump out the line and leave their defensive colleagues with no chance of covering the space?

Joe Ford should be shown the door after this game. He's individually cost us at least 14 points possibly more if you count his attacking howlers.

What on earth does Brett Deacon have these lads doing during the week? Sewing circle maybe because it definetly isn't tackle practise.

Good pressure and an efficient lineout leads to a try! Rolling maul is working well.
