No sorry don't get this back row selection at all. O'Connor probably the best 7 at 8 while Thompson on the bench. Carthorse Fitzgerald at 6? Williams at 7? Mapapalan on the bench. Think it will be another long afternoon :smt009
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

does Mike Williams have it in his contract he must play when fit? He hardly ever performs well and sums up to me the decline of Tigers over the last few years

Are we looking to attack the Chiefs lineout? Theres 5 jumpers in the starting XV then another two on the bench.

Question is can this teams score over 30 points tomorrow? I can't see it sadly
It may not have to. As long as it is 1 point ahead of Chiefs at the final whistle that's enough.
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!

As long as Newcastle lose, even a bonus point would be welcome.

Its sad to say, I will be surprised if we get into double figures.
We just have no confidence at present an early chiefs score could be a gateway to a complete hiding.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

We will most likely see a shock away win tomorrow in the three games,let's hope it's not Newcastle because that doesn't bear thinking about!

I have decided to have a flutter on a Tiger Roll tomorrow. Why not? It could easily be a win and the Turn could be just what we need.

Well I think Newcastle could get something out of their game as Sarries have rested quite a few players; no Goode, Mulipola, Barret, Wrigglesworth, George etc.
I’d even fancy us getting a result!
The players know it is their hands but that only replicates the end of last season when a top 4 was ours to lose and we did.
Some of the press believe we will be 4 tries down by half time!
Come on Tigers. First 80 -90 minute performance of the season please.

I believe we will be 4 tries down by HT if we concede early!

We'll get walloped.

Hope to have egg on my face now I've said that but I genuinely think we'll get hammered. Exeter are a brilliantly efficient and powerful side and we're a disorganised, underpowered rabble. Sorry but we are.

Just to rub salt in it, I'm in Cardiff for a meeting tomorrow. Although I will be on my way back before any Taffs can start extracting the urine. Small mercies, I'll get enough over the 6N. :smt013

I was worried we would get a kicking before I saw the team but now I am likely to have a sleepless night - GT on the bench and MW starting .... at 7. Faceplant.
