What was the last good game he had?! He's been poor for us for a long time and that's a FACT!

HT 15-7 with Catt and Garvey out.

Only 8 points back - this is not lost.
its not lost yet but we have to get ball hold onto it and not kick it straight back to them.

We needed that break. Just get some pressure on them and start getting some territory. We need some ball in hand (whilst not dropping it) and put some backs moves in place.
A bit one dimensional at the moment with the usual just run at them and see what happens.
There is never any points for 2nd place...

Some of the comments on here!

If we had just had a half with as much possession and territory as Bath and be only 8 points ahead, people would be moaning we should be further ahead.

Absolute credit to Tigers for their awesome defence. Defence which many on here have criticised recently.

Their second try shouldn't have been allowed either due to a knock on.

Don't be so soon and gloom. We are still in this.

out of interest is Sam Harrison among the walking wounded or has White simply surpassed him?


I wouldn't say Youngs isn't interested Scott but I wouldn't be upset if it was announce tomorrow he was moving to France post World Cup either

2 great scores from Bath, the sheer strength of Jamie Roberts to power over the line even after being tackled and also the mysterious skill of scoring a try despite having 3 players off their feet and knocking the ball on.... well played JP Doyle!

And before anyone says I’m blaming the ref for our slow first half, I think he has been equally bad for Bath and we deserved a yellow. Bath are playing well and we need to have a big first 10 in the second half. Still think we are in it!

Our backrow are being played off the park. We look cumbersome and undynamic where as Bath's are covering ground in attack and defence. JP is letting them get away with a bit but they aren't being paid to be honest.

Got to get some more support in attack as our ball carriers are just getting picked off. They turn us over and then just keep the ball through seemingly endless phases.

Get Evans on for Fitzgerald.

Bath deserve their winning position but is this what new reffing is all about? Make sure that the right team wins despite the laws of the game? JP you are shocking. The Irish twit commentating doesn't help. I despair for the future of the game.

Couldn't agree more! Dalaglio isn't exactly covering himself in glory either...

Slow first half? We scored 7 points inside 2 minutes and our defence has been awesome. Hardly a slow first half!

Roberts double movement for the first try and knock on for the second. Remind me what the TMO is for again?
Fear not, he will surface when one of our lads makes a borderline high tackle. :smt002
