Those from the wrong end of Welford Road will not be looking forwards to MWWRd.
They have thus far not put in a 80 min performance. Good in patches, very good in patches and abysmal in patches.
If we maintain our progression and ferocity, we should get this one to bed.

I have no doubt SB knows how valuable this one means.
I have no doubt all the players will be pumped for this one and I'd love to be a fly on the wall when the squad knows who's selected. For those not selected I have no doubt the'll be a gnashing of teeth.

Eeh gods I might get me boots cleaned and kit washed.

I’ve watched most of Saints games and they certainly put in 80 v Irish and will be raring to go to get another win against us.
Everyone knows that the team that wants it the most in this derby usually wins.
Think it will be a similar game to Bath: lots of running rugby from them but with Biggar playing it will be in a more controlled way.
I don’t go with resting players now( apart from the enforced rests for Ford and Genge).
The aim will be to win one game at a time. I’d mix the first team and bench so I like the idea of Cole on the bench with Genge starting. JVP and Ford to start with Young’s McPhillips on later! But in Steve Borthwick we trust!

Have to agree re SB but it is interesting to see the different options and it is great that we have so many of them.

We can and should win both the derby and the Ulster game as we have the player depth to achieve both. Discipline is key so I trust SB has drilled that hard this week. I don't mind the odd penalty for, say, a 7 being off side at the breakdown as their job is to live on the edge but giving away stupid penalties because of lack of self control has to end. Learn from the mistakes and getting better is the sign of a team on the move in the right direction.

Hopefully we won't have one eyed Lol doing the commentary :smt009

Not sure about beating Ulster. Heart always says Tigers will win but head says we are definitely underdogs, though this may suite SB fine. Ulster are having a very good season and have dished out some thrashings to good teams this season. Only Leinster have made them look second best and they gave Toulouse a good run for their money. They’ll also be targeting the Tigers game. Personally, I think if we beat Ulster, either Baaaaarth or Montpellier are both very juicy prospects and not to be feared.

As for Saints game, it’s simple. It’s simply inconceivable that Tigers should do anything other than win! T

Well it would appear the Sinners & Us are on the naughty step with the allocation of Sir.....another afternoon of clueless officiating...all of a sudden the Euro semi ref looks a whole lot better....

With Dickson reffing both sides will be worried about the way he refs. Sadly, having watched him ref games that involve us and those that don’t, I’ve rarely seen him ref well or consistently. Too much reliance on the TMO and doesn’t communicate with the players in a clear way. I’m sure he’s a very decent bloke so hope this is the game he gets it right!

To be fair to CMK I think he's improved significantly this season, but he's nowhere near Barnes' class, yet. He may one day be there or there abouts

Simply hope for a win - the how does not matter.
