Rugby U


Youngs off for Bateman. Excellent shift from the cannonball today.

Scrum goes down again. Aren't they excellent?

77min: Tigers running through forwards to eat up the clock. Bell kicks but doesn't make touch. Bath knock on, but not spotted. Drive on.

78min: Bath lose ball forward off Cook's boot and give away penalty. Bell wastes a bit of time and kicks to touch. 21-11.

MOTM is given to Mike Williams by Flats. An assured decision and the forwards have played a huge part of the game today 21-11.

79min: Free kick to Tigers from the lineout. Bath steal the ball and look to counter. Priestland finds a hole but Bath lose it. 21-11

80min: Bath scuppered in own 22 and try to make ground. Watson is hit hard by Harrison. Still on 22. 21-11.

81min: Bath win penalty and take it quickly. Ball is stripped and Harrison clears to touch for game over. Tigeres 21 Bath 11.

Game of attrition with Tigers forwards being the real difference maker. Ford kept Bath in the game until late but not enough.

In a sloppy game, Tigers were the less sloppy and capitalised on the errors. Once again, I have been @Mikehouse88 and it has been a pleasure
