First topic message reminder :

That's not a high tackle. Heyes initial contact is the chest. If you're going to review it, review it properly. It's a legal tackle.

How did the assistant miss that the LI player knocks the ball out of JVP's hands and into touch before the Joseph break. It was right in front of him FFS. Lineout Tigers.

Anyway, Tigers blow what should have been a straightforward win and only get 4 instead of 5 points. LI manage to snatch 2 league points with a TBP at the death. Probably a fair result as LI were the better side in the first half but didn't really show up in the second. Hassell-Collins is looking like a really classy player, shame Parton went off.

2 late tries again for Bristol - making a habit of this.

Meanwhile it sounds like another potential red card against a team playing LI not given - although I'll reserve judgement until I've seen it myself.  If true that would be at least 3 this season mad

Wuss are as bad as rhe falcons for finishing off moves.

They've had a lot of possession in this game and are losing heavily.

Harrison off now with a yellow for Saints.

Not sure what more he could do...your now putting a tackler in a position where its more dangerous for them as they are going low in head on tackles...that's going to be dangerous...

They've got a good powerful pack so they do get lots of ball...they just fail everytime they get in rhe 22.

Saints have some good young players though...Mitchell, Freeman, slightholme looks a cracking young winger after his dad..Grayson Jr aswell

Probably the most complete match Saints have played in a couple of years. I'm still not convinced by Mitchell, but Jon Sleightholme's son Ollie has a big future and is a chip off the old block but even faster. I have a jersey from Jon and I think I will wear it all afternoon. Just earned his hat trick. Tommy Freeman as well, a kid with massive upside.

Also helps Worcs are down to 13 men, here at the end.

Ollie just scored his fourth (this is garbaaage time, and garbaaage time scores shouldn't count too much).

Brooks would have been red carded there if shields were an opposition player. Given the law is there for safety reasons and it was clearly reckless I think its a bit of an oddity its not a red anyway.

I would say Ribbands, Freeman and Slightholme impressed me the most talented kids. Jones or whoever is England manager must have a good look at them.

Paul Hill has made some crazy carries since he's come on...

After the Sale match last week that win was unexpected ... although they nearly threw it away with a couple of yellows so it ended up 13 v 13

That is not a yellow.

Game is going down a dark path.

When the kids are back playing and being yellow/red carded week after week, they will walk away from the game, some for good.

It's complete Love sacks.

I think the officials TMOs are going have to be former players, at least then there would be understanding of what it's like to play the game.

Too many Refs have never played the game, rugby tots and tag does not count. Just look at this joker in the Sale v Wasps game.

We were having a big laugh at Paul Hill making those big runs trying to score and just not making it.  He clearly had no desire to pass at all.  Ribbans is playing really great (he had a Borthwick nose day today).  Freeman and Sleightholme are, in my opinion, the goods.  Furbank ain't clotted cream either, but had a mediocre start with England.  It's a shame Isiekwe has to go back to Saracens, because he has been terrific for us lately.

I feel bad for Ted Hill.  Played great in the first half when Worcester was quite good.  Also had to do the post match interview which he carried off with class.

A well taken try but I've got to feel for Falcons a bit. They lose Welsh from that clearout without Tigers being penalised and from the resulting scrum their replacement prop gets absolutely minced leading to a try. If the boot were on the other foot I'd be seething there.

It's Karl Dickson he's not very good.

Speaking of not very good Wigglesworth is having a shocker. Get JVP warmed up and then on at half time. The inaccuracies and pedestrian tempo is killing our attack in a game we're dominating.
