I agree Wasps could be sucked in but they have one huge advantage:

I think the run-in I'd be most concerned about would be:

Worcs(h); Exeter(a); Saracens(h); Bath(a); Harlequins(h).

That's what faces Wasps.
Interesting in that they play 3 of the same teams that we do. Can't see them beating Exeter or Sarries and the other 3 are not easy. Best I can see them managing is 3 wins and that's being optimistic about Bath away.
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!

Wasps would certainly be in the mire if they lose next up against Worcester.

It would put us further in the mire, unless we can get a win. "Hope springs eternal". :smt083

4 games......

12th April Newcastle
27th April Bristol
3rd May Quins
18th May Bath

Me, the former eternal optimist (who now has grave doubts!) says"IF" Tigers can get an lbp minimum at Newcastle and "IF" they can sneak a 4 point win against Bristol, then they will surely avoid the dreaded drop!

You and me both, but an awful feeling we are asking for a miracle.
Leicester Tigers 1995-
Nottingham 1995-2000
Swansea (Whites) 1988-95
A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.

I'm nervous for tomorrow but I think we can win. However I have a sneaking suspicion we may achieve a surprise result away at Quins. Hope so anyway.

The rest of the Premiership are loving the fact that we're in trouble. At work all the fans who never spoke about rugby are suddenly interested and putting the boot in ! Looking on Shedweb, Gloucester fans seem more interested in the potential relegation of Tigers than their own Top 4 ambitions ! It's madness, especially considering how garbage they've been for the best part of 10 years. I'm still clinging onto the hope that we can somehow find a win that will keep us up, but it's hard work.

A small percentage maybe, but it’s more that they’re worried we’ll stay up and then start on the road to recovery.

I am more hopeful of beating Quins. than Newcastle.
