Is it better to end a poor season with a TBP win v Sale away?
or a sightly better season with a Play-off thumping away to Exeter?

At least some of the players will have 2 weeks extra holiday.

Why oh why cant we play like that more often. I never thought we could get 5 points, or a win, most unlikely, probably a LBP just about. Why can we play like that, were Sale poor, worse than Saints and Falcons, goodness knows why we can do it for today but not against the other 2.
Yes weather was great today, but why did Ford choose to play flat today and put in those short passes to allow others to burst through. Simply no logic as to why. :smt017
Great to see Holmes play like that. :smt038
Thanks Tigers for ensuring we don't have to go to the frozen wastes next season! :smt001

From what I heard, Tigers will still be training for a couple of weeks and then go on holiday otherwise it would’ve been a long preseason

Don't know about that the likes of Simmons, Gigena are already on holiday.

don't think so.

Most likely Tigers went with it's most attacking team pretty much.

McGuigan had a nice cameo off the bench today shame he’s leaving but I think he was too inconsistent unfortunately.

I don’t think he actually had a neck injury, probably just knew that he was surplus to requirements and didn’t turned up

If my memory is correct McGuigan didn't get a chance under MOC. He,like Hamilton,was actually good for us after a slow start.

That's a heck of an allegation to make against a professional player.

I mean it was mentioned here and there, but no one was asking about McGuigan and when he was going to come back, MOC never told the media about when he was expecting him to come back so I assumed that MOC had dropped him completely...

Ford needs players to run attacking lines so he can pick them out and put them into gaps. Not sure that is in the MOC gameplay which seems to be simply pass it wide to a static player.

Some of the dropped passes seemed to be simply a player not expecting the ball, not sure that is acceptable at this level.

Fair play to Mat Tait. Whilst everyone is moaning about others in the back line and whether player A can play with player B, Tait slots in at 11,12,13,14 or 15 and puts a shift in, every single time. He’s a class act.....still.
