No reason why we cant win, that's a good team and I don't see anything special in the Bath side.
Maybe nothing special agreed but they handled Wasps very well last weekend and they will want to put right the scoreline from last time out. Missing Guy and Will is a big loss, but I have my faith in Genge and Cole to make the set-piece the platform that will get the Tigers the win. I just Kerr and Co have perfected the lineout calls etc?

Genge should beast Thomas. Catt v Cole is a toss up,imo Catt is England's best scrummaging LH but Attwood is a massive loss for them,with Garvey in there we should really be able to get after them. Is this negated though by the loss of Spencer and using Kitchener instead of Williams? We shall see Sunday!

If we play the way we played against Quins, it should be a close game.
Will be cheering on Tigers from the stands!

After tonight's game, LBP minimum to stay in contact with top 4.....TBH 4th place is all that is realistically up for grabs.
Leicester Tigers 1995-
Nottingham 1995-2000
Swansea (Whites) 1988-95
A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.

Trying to be realistic rather than defeatist I think top 6 should be our aim. We are not in a position to challenge either of the top 2 sides away from home when they are at full strength and European top tier needs to be available to attract players

Being realistic we are still looking down!! Wuss shouldn't get anything at AP but Newcastle could win at Bristol. I won't stop sweating till we hit 32-34 points!

If it was up to me, I wouldn't be looking down. I'd be looking up and aiming for 3rd. We are 9 points away with Gloucester to come next week.

Let's aim for 3rd. If we aim for it and miss it, we may still get 4th.

Let's not keep looking behind us, it will slow us up. Let's pin our ears back and go as far as we can.

This is my feeling too. Need to establish some momentum, and winning a second consecutive game against a very average Bath side is doable providing we don’t turn up with the attitude Exeter initially displayed last night

Ah - but have we got the spirit and attitude ? . if we have the usual away game start we will be stuffed again - lets hope the talk has more substance than usual this weekend . Bath have got a good pack , but freddie can be a bit flaky as we well know and this is the sort of game we ought to win .

I would prefer the team to just focus on one game at a time. If they start thinking about position at the end they wIil lose focus on what they need to do in each phase of each game. I would not be surprised to see Sarries and Exeter lose a few more. Both have been level pegging by winning all but when one lost the other did, and I wouldn't mind betting part of this was each being distracted by thinking they could go clear at the top.
