The 2 injuries to the locks seems to have taken our momentum. As has often been the case in recent seasons we haven't adjusted quickly and have let the opposition off top easily.

That LI try all came from one poor chase. Youngs hung a good box kick just on the 22 but Irish took it under no pressure, made a few metres, then made a good clearance under no pressure that led to Ford getting charged down.

Easy let offs.

Luke Pearce is desperate to find a reason to disallow every Tigers try, that is NEVER called

Why does Exeter manage to make their entire game plan on that stuff.

Try chalked off.

Technically, technically - it’s obstruction. But it happens so many times a game it seems incredibly harsh.

The 9 isn’t catching Ford there.

Shocking decisions against us. Really poor.

3 tries disallowed ,ok maybe correct, but what else can go wrong? Maybe shouldn't ask that question

Luke Wallace has been an astute signing. Really impressed.

A big upside from a poor game. He looks absolute quality. Great in the air and a cannon of a boot.

I feel like Taute is a liability at 13. He is too slow to make the lateral movement needed - Irish have got round the corner too easily tonight.
