Wrigglesworth has shut up the doubters.

Outstanding scrum half. The youngsters should be learning every last trick they can.
yep his signing could prove to be the best we have made long term if the young 9s are like sponges soaking up all they can from him.

Nasty looking head knock there

Taute looks so much more of a player that we used to know than last year. Aled Walters work I suspect. So far Wigglesworth is proving to be an absolute gem.

Is it just me, or is anyone else very confused. There’s a team in green red and white playing proper rugby. Have I got the right tv channel?

Gigena got his prop on toast, keep it going.

Hopefully Ludlow recovers quickly from that nasty collision, never nice to see anybody get KO'd like that

You have the wrong channel coz there is a 9 whose kicks aren't utterly hopeless

these penalty advantages are ridiculously long, refs need to cut that down a lot

Cipriani’s pass that was nearly intercepted looked a mile forward

Maybe evens given our 3rd try

Well at least that gives Borthwick something to yell at them for at half time...
No, not that one!

Remember, whatever you do to the smallest of the backs you do to his prop, and you can't avoid the rucks and mauls forever...

Lineouts are the worry but you would imagine that would be the first thing to go rusty with only 1 week together.

Both debutants doing the business. Best half for Tigers in a long while. Need to back it up now!
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

Lineouts still a concern but that’s understandable given lack of preparation, love this performance so far, I knew Wiese would be a good signing, a great carry and some munching hits in defence.

We were very lucky with the Wigglesworth try in that the pass was forward, we just need to keep it up and keep our heads!

Bizarre how the lineout about the only plus on resumption is poor today.
Wiese is smaller than I thought but an absolute unit, Potter looks like a serious prospect deserving of his position, Taute if you watch isn't any quicker across the ground but way quicker in mind than most.
Stop the Wigglesworth love in, its below us, he has done nothing you wouldn't expect of him it's the off field reasons some of us are anti his signing.
To win is not as important as playing with style!
