First topic message reminder :

Harlequins Starting XV

1. Joe Marler
2. Jack Walker - Captain
3. Wilco Louw
4. George Hammond
5. Irne Herbst
6. Jack Kenningham
7. Will Evans
8. Archie White

9. Lewis Gjaltema
10. Marcus Smith
11. Cadan Murley
12. Lennox Anyanwu
13. Joe Marchant
14. Nick David
15. Tyrone Green

Impact Players
16. George Head
17. Santiago Garcia Botta
18. Simon Kerrod
19. Dino Lamb
20. Matas Jurevicius
21. Danny Care
22. Tommy Allan
23. Luke Northmore

Dombrandt is a big loss at 8 and Botta can be a bit up and down while Kerrod is reverting to TH for the first time in a while, but allowing for injury and international absence it's a good team. Sandy Park is always a tough place to visit, though, so at this point I'd be happy to come away with a BP.

Wow - another knock-on not considered advantage over after about half a dozen phases ... some strange refereeing again by Dickson

Not saying the YC wasn't right but why didn't they spend as much time looking at the possible slap into touch at the start of the match that could have been a YC and PT?

Maybe we need to just get relegated and replaced by a club that will actually try and I can go back to watching my local team.

I completely get Dickson not asking to see it after his lineman said he thought it was a genuine attempt. Tmo at fault there mistaking 2 handed as automatically not being a slap.

Dickson was pretty generous to Saints in their 22 for much of the game when he finally snapped he was a bit card happy. Liebenburg was frustrated and asking how many penalties fairly early given the ill-discipline on show.

Dickson is a frustrating ref but thought he was more consistent than he has been in previous seasons.

Saints tired and Tigers ran rampant. The scrum, the kicking game and the hard carries all sapped the legs of the Saints players. As soon as the Tigers carriers started getting over the gain line then Tigers could start moving the ball around and offloading. Discipline for Saints got worse as they got tired and once on the wrong side of Dickson it unravelled quickly with Tigers able to just play more physical as the game went on.

Ah thanks, that makes more sense. Still wrong and he should wind his neck in once the ref has checked with the TMO.

Agreed though he played very well and after he left the field the lack of leadership with both him Lawes gone was really noticeable for Saints.

For me, it's about the three YCs. Saints get pinged a lot, most of it earned by our front row. I think the game turned on those YCs.

I get why Biggar shouldn’t talk to refs. But he did have a point about the knock on maybe, from his POV. But it was always going to be classed as a wrap. It wouldn’t have made a difference, but I get people chasing marginal gains. Dan Cole tried claiming a forward pass for Saints try when he tried chasing back. For no reason. It’s the same thing.

Yeah I have less issue if he was attempting to claim the knock on as the tackle was so clearly legal protests about that were ridiculous. Dickson did have to repeat that it was a legal tackle too many times for my taste though. I've got no problem with asking the officials to take a look at something but once they have that's pretty much where it should finish, bar reasonable questions around the explanation.

Cole's forward pass question to the AR were more optimistic than anything else, did make me chuckle.

Yeah the ill-discipline definitely cost you, the waves of pressure from Tigers as Saints tired just left you increasingly up against it. Liebenburg the Tigers captain was asking how many penalties Saints were allowed to concede in the 22 by the end of the first half so Dickson was fairly restrained in keeping his card in his pocket until the final quarter.

The decision making from Saints to keep playing and keep the ball on the field even though they were tired and Tigers were on top was an odd one. Tigers have a very good fitness set up and won a lot of games late on last season with help from that (including the semi final). I'd have thought Saints leaders would have been instructing the kickers to get the ball off the park and slow the game down a bit more. Saints are explosive enough as is they don't need massive amounts of ball in play time.

Not impressed with Quins' scrum half so far, he has been really slow and indecisive, which isn't helping with Quins being really under pressure in defence.

Closest I can find is a clarification of simultaneous placement for try and touch-in-goal - that was ruled as a goal-line drop-out so I assume if the touch is outside of in-goal area, as in this case, it would be ruled as in touch so line-out - so looks like correct decision in this case.

I wonder if Northmore will be in the England squad tomorrow.

I really like that Anywanyu. Yes he made a few mistakes in the first half but he could be a very good 12. Power to break the tackle but has vision to pass or kick well also ...
