That's a straightforward catch, for goodness sake.

That's the game. Self implosion as usual.

Well I cannot see anything that gives me hope in this performance we are just continuing to play as prior to lockdown
Without hope we are nothing, keep the faith, a Tiger for eternity

3 of their tries have come off basic errors from Worth when he's been under very little pressure.

The flame of hope that flickered for an instant has now been extinguished.

The back three have been dreadful, I’m usually a fan of Olowofela but he just looks so lacking in physicality.

SB really has a job on his hands here, what a shambles of 2nd half so far, the inability to defend a maul is embarrassing, The back line is laughable, no invention, pace or quality, we must play Steward in the next game at Full Back, watching Worth is painful. Wish this season had just been written off, going to be hard watching the next few weeks.

The lack of the Veianu spark is very evident today. Exeter more than managing the attack.

Lets hope its back to a game now we've both got one in the bin.

Rest Ford now so that we can target our home games.
Borthwick now knows, as if he didn’t before, that saving Tigers will be like trying to keep the Titanic afloat after it hit the iceberg!
What happened there? A try. We can win this!
Agree that 2 of our back 3 are not good enough. Olowofela isn’t doing too badly and has chased the high ball pretty well.
Passing like that from Scott to Olowofela doesn’t help!

It’s a bit of a damp squib now. Great to see us get a penalty try, but lots of the old failings. I am sure we will improve and Rome wasn’t built in a day. Just don’t want to take a real spanking now. I think there has been some positives though. Tommy R has been a great jackal and we have some great players coming to join in the next few months
There is never any points for 2nd place...

Early doors in the SB reign but centre is as ever an issue for us. Matt Scott good, Taute not. Fullback we were always going to miss TV sparkle. But oh the penalty count is dreadful.

Foley finally gives a pen for blocking....61 mins in.

There are some green shoots here. The team haven't collapsed but have hung in there. That at least, is an improvement.

How do Exeter continually get away with blocking and going off their feet :smt016
