Rugby U


Hello everyone. @Mikehouse88 here tweeting through 5th place Leicester Tigers vs 8th place Bath. It's my first time, so be nice.

Some big matchups today, lots of players trying to impress a new England setup. Louw vs O'Connor I think will be the difference maker.

Smoke on the Water blasts through the stands as Tigers are on their way out.

Bath kicking off through Ford with the wind swirling around Welford Road. Tigers looking to keep WR a fortress.

Quick exit from Youngs to give Bath a lineout on halfway 0-0.

1 min: Eastmond already making a way through the defence. Gives the ball out wide and an interception forces a Bath lineout in the 22 0-0.

2min: Tait already subbed, unclear if blood or injury. Bath knock on and Tigers get rid.

Tait off through injury in try saving tackle. Big loss.

3min: Matawalu lost ball forward to give Tigers a break through Veianu who is forced out 0-0.

4min: Huge maul for Bath makes 20m then Ford sends up a prayer.
