We are missing a couple of first choices, but we really should be firing better than this, home advantage will hopefully save our blushes and show you how "poor or average" we are.....................................n't.
I know it's tongue in cheek wind up time, but Genge is a beast and Cole is still the gaffer at 3, we really are missing Slaters grunt in the tight, but Barrow is a better player long term I think(I'd have kept both if it were me). Back row is unsettled, not sure who plays where, but I'd like to see Tom Croft at 6 to get the lineout firing. Half backs are what they are, Englands starters and even without Manu we have some great backs, just need to supply them with more go forward ball. Have a safe journey up to Welford Road.

Was gonna say... I really rate tigers. Thought your scrum was outstanding on Saturday, I thought you would have tried to eek out few more penalties from it. Threads like this frustrate me, the league is incredibly tough and in truth there isn't much between teams other than deeper resources and what comes off the bench.

Tigerburnie I suspect most Glos fans realise we will be underdogs and any points will be great. A couple of poor performances doesn't make a bad team. I am sure the bookies won't have us as favourites and they are never far off.

This thread sums our fans up really. Complacent and sticking the boot into tigers before weve even played them! Setting ourselves up for a fall massively.

Can't see us getting anything at welford road- nothing against our current team in just never confident of us going there.

Hoping to see an improved performance from us regardless of the result. Its glos so u just never know!

Everyone needs to stay behind the team and Ackerman. He is the right man for the job. One win does not make a team and one defeat does not break it. This week will be a very tough game for us. Lets all get behind the lads and have our fingers crossed!

We would struggle there with all our players fit, looking at those out I'm not anticipating anything from the game - but I'm hoping just the same.

I agree Lucifer, the fact we just lost to Queens doesn't help my decreasesing optimisim, we will come away empty handed imo - would love to be proven wrong though! Can't see Leicester losing their 3rd game in a row, and 2nd home game :?

Betfair make it a 12 point game in favour of Tiggers.

My Tigger mate at work for the first time in years is not confident, so with lower odds may get a 16/18 point start which I I will take.
