Wow - Bristol being allowed to throw in massively crooked and not a hint of a call from the officials ...

I dunno looked like they were robbed before halftime. Don't know how that last scrum wasn't a penalty and how no one had a second look at the Maunder knock on at the back of the scrum.

I though Ridley got the Genge decision spot on personally. It's head contact but he's bent at the waist and it's in the act of wrapping the arms he makes contact with the head. Would have been a harsh red, it's not the type of clear out World Rugby were trying to get rid of with their directives. Had he tucked the arm and made contact to the head with the shoulder it would have been a very different story.

Strange game, at least to me. Exeter clearly better, but in the first half, they seemed pretty close. Exeter taking their chances for sure. The LCD try just puts a cherry on it.

Tshiunza looking like he’s ready for a Wales recall. I’d put him at 6 for us, but I don’t rate Lydiate unlike our coach. Perhaps next year for Daf Jenkins.

He's certainly taken a step up this season. Still a bit raw but there's a lot to like in someone that big and mobile with a decent all round skillset. He's got a bit of everything going for him.

Absolutely he has. By all accounts he’s also a nice and humble guy. Could be a good captain in a few seasons.

Aye looks to have everything you need to be a good international player.

Sale claiming a bonus point win at Welford Road is a superb result for them, they are starting to look like dark horses.

It has got so bad at the Rec that I even kind of wanted Bath to win, but ended up being a scrappy win fro Gloucester.

A very disappointing home loss for Tigers. To be honest I felt the score line actually flattered much of the performance.

We were beaten in contact too often. The diabolically poor tackling on Roebuck for the first try from Steward and Burns being the start of it.

The varying absence of Kelly, Porter and Scott so far this season has hit the defence very hard. Defensive organisation was exceptional last season. The forwards in fringe defence communicating with the backs and the midfield defensive alignment moving into wide channels was largely fantastic. It was a cohesive unit. With the midfield absentees thus far it hasn't been.

Then having Ford available so much the kicking game that Borthwick's game plan relies on was extremely consistent.

Sale dominated in contact in a similar way during the second half of our loss to them last season. Their forwards smashed us physically in the second half.

An issue for Tigers prior to Chessum's impressive improvements was that our locks had great depth but we lacked really high class second rows. The lineout can sometimes shake against top lock pairings, without that set-piece solidity we can then get dominated in the loose. Chessum developing into an international lock certainly helped but it is still an issue. The lineout has been very disappointing several times already this season.

I'm loathe to highlight individuals in pish team performances but Gopperth was poor yet again. I was very happy with his signing but so far, albeit in depleted midfields, he has been well below is standards at Wasps.

Away from my frustration as a Tigers fan it was great to see Quirke back fit. He played really well when he came on.

I expect JvP and Quirke to have a great battle for the England 9 shirt for years to come if they can stay fit.

Saw only the end of the Bath-Gloucester match. The thought occurred to me when the camera pans around the area surrounding the Rec that Bath is such a nice town that it is (almost a) shame their Rugby club is terrible. It seemed like a picture perfect autumn day and a great day to go watch some Rugby. But then they have to watch the team wearing blue...

It's a beautiful city, especially in that sort of light. We have been lucky to live here for 15 years, and even luckier to afford a house (plenty can't get on the ladder). Saying that, it has changed a lot since 2007 (and not always for the better).

In rugby term it has surprised me how poor Bath have been at capitalising on their natural assets in their recent history. I work in a school and can tell you that this area is rugby mad and has some of biggest rugby nurseries, yet the only England player that I remember Bath producing in the last decade or so is Charlie Ewels (if you were being extremely generous you might also say Zach Mercer was in their academy for a bit). I used to go down the Rec on a Monday night and watch Bath United get tonked on a regular basis.

It looks like things are starting to change though, with the likes of Ojomoh, Reid, Richards and Bailey coming through.

Agree in the second row position we're in. Wells, Snyman and Green are all solid pros but aren't going to develop beyond that. I'm hoping Cam Henderson gets another shot in the first team soon as he's one that could develop past that point.

Midfield seems a huge issue currently. Gopperth looks his age and Scott is clearly not fit as he's normally dependable but looks well below par currently. Tigers missing their 9/10/12/13 all in one go is a one off excuse and doesn't explain the mess we've been so far this season.

Borthwick has a tendency to look to experience when the team is under pressure but I think we need to go the other way and start using some of the younger guys. Henderson and Cokanasiga would be straight in to the team for next week for me.

At least we've got through games against a few of the top 4 contenders done and out the way. Quins to come which probably won't go well and then it's Wasps and Bath in the league after Falcons in the cup, some games we should do better.

Saints giving away lots of stupid penalties, although I'm not sure about the offside in front of kicker that led to one of Wasps tries, or the ball not out that gave them another 3 - would have to see the replays ...

OK so the No. 4 was in front of the kicker when he set off, although he was run onside well before anyone got near the catcher (and he never did), but I guess as he didn't stop and wait before being run onside it was technically a pen - see that not pinged all the time though.  The ref did shout for him to stop though, so a daft one to give away.  

For the not out, the ball was still in front of the back foot and the ref shouted no so Biggar was daft to pick it up - even though there was no Wasps player in sight to pick it up, but I think that may have been due to Robson being held down a bit too long at the previous tackle.

Agreed, reckless and dangerous with both players feeling the effects after. Umaga would have been in no fit state to continue even if he hadn't been sent off.

If the line from a Wasps director on BT is that there should be one rule for Wasps and one rule for Worcester because Wasps are Wasps then frankly I don't feel too optimistic about an imminent rescue package at the Ricoh.

Or Dallagio isn't the brightest tool in the box...

I think you have it right there.

I find it hard to get to wound up with Dallagio, he's just a bit of a prat. Some of the nonsense that he spouts, this is hardly surprising. I heard he backtracked at a rate of knots later in the show?

The issue with social media is that that horse has now bolted. Having not watched the show it's his initial thoughts that have created the furore. Not sure how that wasn't challenged immediately but then he talks drivel, makes up laws etc and is never challenged then either.

Does anyone with half a brain take social media that seriously though? People get offended/outraged/disgusted at the smallest thing on there, it's better to stay away from these topics on there as they're just full of idiots.

As opposed to say using this site instead? It's social media that brought this to my attention, and I don't mind personally using it for a variety of things, it is after all just another vehicle to express opinions and take in sports etc. It can get a little wild west like though.

Does anyone with half a brain take social media that seriously though? People get offended/outraged/disgusted at the smallest thing on there, it's better to stay away from these topics on there as they're just full of idiots.

As opposed to say using this site instead? It's social media that brought this to my attention, and I don't mind personally using it for a variety of things, it is after all just another vehicle to express opinions and take in sports etc. It can get a little wild west like though.

I think the opinions on social media are much more extreme than on here though, there's no accountability at all. At least we have some form of moderation (which of course is excellent!).

I didn't say using social media was a bad thing, just that it shouldn't be taken too seriously.

If it is on the internet, it must be true.

I like Dallaglio. To me, he is like a lot of sports commentators, looking for an opportunity to create a little controversy or buzz. The over the top stuff is mildly annoying, but I am desensitised to it all at this point and don't really think about what they say too much.

On social media, the ease with which people lose their mind, forget basic politeness, and as you said, are offended, outraged, or generally pished off boggles the mind of someone born before the internet. It's an effing tool, use it as such. And people forget how much misinformation and disinformation is out there (not just Russian masarikova and the like) and they buy into anything. There is no rule that I am aware of which says one must be a d*ck in order to use social media. But some people clearly embrace it. We are lucky here, methinks.

BT offer such a good rugby product for me. Its better than what sky offered previously a big step up from the bbc on the whole, itv and channel 4 lagging behind....but they employ Dallaglio simply because of how famous he is. He offers very little technical or tactical breakdown and makes laws up. I can understand wanting a name to help push things initially but surely his contract is up soon and they can bring someone else in.
