This could be a close game as long as we don't capitulate in the 2nd half.
I'm not cynical just experienced

That must be the slowest back row we have ever selected.....on a hard pitch as well.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

Just to remind some Tigers have at least five back three players unavailable through injury or international call up, as cover they have signed two experienced wingers on a three month injury dispensation. Do posters suppose that there is a ready supply of quality players sitting around unattached yet at Premiership fitness just waiting for a call? The guys we signed were available and may be able to help us but I think some of our fans are asking for the impossible in expecting us to sign current international quality wingers at this time of the season.
That's a far too sensible, reasoned and accurate post to appear on here, John. Moderators please remove this immediately :smt003

100% in agreement with you.

Interesting that there's no Joe Ford anywhere near the squad (rightly IMHO) - do we think he'll be released at the end of the season or retained?

I just find it amazing that people with no inside knowledge make comments like ridiculous back row.

Could be injury related could be tactical
.
How about asking I wonder why that back row has been picked.

I suppose that would be too positive for some so called fans

Disappointed not to see Hardwick start; ditto Guy Thompson at 7 - either he's fit or he's not. Toomua said last week that it's these games he's paid the big bucks for. He needs to step up - and he needs to be brutal with his 2 centres who both need a significantly better and braver performance. Good to see Simmons.

There is a huge difference between being fit and match fit (ability to go at your peak for 80+ minutes) Thompson has been out for quite a while, give him a chance, Heyes, Thompson and Spencer are very decent players to come off the bench to try and make an impact

Amazed that Hardwick is still on the bench - how badly do our 10,11,12 need to do before they make way.
11 did make way.

Harrison replaced by Simmons, has he gotten injured again? good to see Simmons back though

Or go to sleep in the first 10 minutes like we did against them at Welford Road.
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!

Agree, I always thought that chap sitting at his supporters table post match in The Final Whistle looked far too smiley and agreeable to be a true Tiger!! :smt023

I wonder if it is deliberate tactics from GM. Worcester tend to be pretty physical up front and he may be playing a bigger, (maybe) more physical back row to match (defensively) and tire out the Worcester pack early in the game; then bring on the quicker back row and speed the game up a bit later in the match.

Maybe .....?

Am I alone in thinking Sam Harrison would make a good option at 12, we know he's played 10 effectively when needed, has pace and can obviously distribute well

I wonder if we have been training on an artificial pitch this week? :smt048
