Rugby U


Any questions on this game or any other Union matters, I'm all ears during half-time.

Bath with 71% of the possession in the first half and 73% of the territory. Sloppy hands and loose breakdowns have cost them.

Tigers loose forwards doing all the work and Tigers on the whole have caused 11 turnovers, 4 more than Bath.

Eastmond and O'Connor both impressing and both could (should) be in England contention with Banahan showing his class 200 Bath games in.

Dancers looking a bit dishevelled as they run off. Tigers to kick off into the wind 11-5.

41min: Tigers claim ball from kick off and spin it wide after some good forward play. Creeping up to Bath 22 but found holding on.

41: Ford makes huge gain with the kick for a Bath lineout. Flats has problem with call: Shock (but justified!)

42: Bath creative with lineout but spill ball. Matawalu just doesn't look like the same player in the rain. Very inconsistent.

Scrum looks like it's driving high to me, ball comes out of the tunnel and scrum is reset. You can feel the contempt in the crowd!

44min: Tigers slipping in lineout but driving early and give away penalty. Ford slots kick and brings Bath back to 11-8 on the board.
