Good finish May.

Falcons heads have really went down. We've saved our worst performance of the season for perhaps the biggest game. Disappointing and showing we're not quite at the level we want to be yet. Top 6 is still realistic but the scrum has to improve, worst in the AP currently.

Goneva defence down that wing has let you down on more than one occasion.

Tigers win worst high tackle of the game! Lucky not to get a yellow for that.

If you are calling for a yellow card, newcastle have just given away their 4th high tackle and then an offside 2m from their line.

I can't recall Barnes giving a warning for high tackles? May have missed it. As an individual incident it was a bad one and lucky to get away with it.

FFS Tigers another TBP wasted.

Going to cost us.

Doesn't matter what Barnes has or hasn't done. if you are on your 4th pen just for high tackles you should be getting someone in the bin. Also noticed a fair few clearouts around the neck in that last passage.

Well deserved win for Tigers, Falcons were dire for most of the game. Very disappointing in front of a huge crowd for us. Don't think Tigers quite deserved the TBP so some silver lining (clutching here) for us.

Anyone, back to normality.

Newcastle were not at their best today, which is a shame as i love watching them play.

Tigers missed yet another TBP which at the end of the season is going to cost them.

Incredibly disappointing that Tigers reverted to up the jumper stuff at the end when all the ground made during the match came from putting width on the ball and offloading in the tackle.

We do need to be more clinical in that regard.

Having said that Newcastle have been playing well this season so an away win there is excellent.

Only team to have yet to secure a TBP - despite reaching 3 tries in five of the seven matches so far. We need to improve in this regard.

I think it's impressive Leicester have 5 wins out of 7 despite only scoring 18 tries and conceding 15.

I think Leicester have been clinical in picking up the wins.

Their consistency every season is very good.

We've had a slow start to the season but we are gradually getting better.

Half of those tries conceded were in the first two weeks though. We really didn't turn up vs Saints.

One of the big surprises has been how clinical Ford has been off the tee. He's kicked really well. Since we've stopped the stupid throw it around everywhere tactics from the first two weeks he's had a pack giving him the opportunity to take control of games and flourished.

Yes a good performance given all our injuries etc. Absolutely gutted for Matt Mullan who had just earned a call up but will be out for 3 months with a torn tricep tendon. Daly out for a few weeks to with a medial tear.
