5 games to pull that rabbit out of the hat!

Post by Robespierre » Sat Mar 23, 2019 8:08 pm

The good news should be that three of the five games are at home!
So what can we expect?

Exeter (H) - Frankly, no chance whatsoever of even an lbp
Falcons (A) - Falcons will be revved up for this so can't see any points coming Tigers' way here.
Bristol (H) - Of the five games, this is probably the best chance of a win.
Quins (A) - Can't see Tigers coming away with anything.
Bath (H) - Finish the season with a flourish with an lbp!!!

Next season we can look forward to derbies against Cov and Nottingham!

Happy clapper in me says

4 points v Exeter, a low scoring bore fest
5 points v Falcons, we invariably do well on their carpet
5 points v Brizzle, on the right side of an 80 point thriller
2 points v Quins, 1 tbp and 1 lbs
4 points v Barf, last game for a few at Welford road

I'm not sure taking that much fentanyl is wise, from a medical standpoint.

But Brizzle is the key game providing Newcastle get nothing at Sarries. We don't have to beat Newcastle but we need to win one out if those two or we are gone!

The one point I would make is that sport at that level is all about the top 2 or 3 inches.
Momentum is key, we have none at the moment, but a bounce of the ball, or another piece of Ford magic could just turn the tide

And I was always led to believe that size doesn't matter :smt003

Sadly we've had all season to pull the rabbit out of the bag, but sadly that magic seems to have long gone.

Dean Richards will be over the moon if Newcastle get tigers relegated.

Having a quick look at the fixture list my 50 p would be on Worcester to go down.
Their run in is horrendous with last game of the season at home to Saracens.

Also last game for Newcastle is Bristol at home which could be huge

Just after our goose was cooked, if I recall...
No, not that one!
