"pretty ugly to watch ".....a bit harsh on a bunch of kids trying to find their way in a Gloucester shirt, a number of them for the first time. Physicality was the key difference: we were outdone at the re-starts, at the breakdown and, particularly, tackling but it's difficult to gauge the relative age, stage of development etc between these "academy" teams.
We all watch the same match but each of us sees a different game

Agree with that ..but still pretty ugly to watch, sorry you confuse that for being critical of the players out there...my criticism is that they weren't playing 7s.

Bath is even uglier to watch for a Bath fan at the moment v Wasps.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

Think this Wasps side are going to murder everyone. Less than an hour in and roll on next Saturday for some proper rugby :lol:

Never really understood this competition. Not sure who it benefits? Disrupts pre-season a little. The only 7s tournament going, so not like it's preparing for another tournament. Most teams are made up of trialists and u18s. Looks like very little coaching goes into it ahead of the night. Quite simply...what's the point?!!

The point is a couple of days out of 7s rugby...if you don't like it you have the option to look the other way. I quite enjoy the kids playing 7s....despite for those that know me now ...I always enjoyed 7s tournaments at he end of he season
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

Our last try should have gone under the posts - he had time. Win against Exeter and qualification will be down to points difference. It's not that we are going to win it but I want to see a winning mindset.

Not looking like a win v Exeter...they're looking v strong. If we do then then the points Irish are shipping will be in our favour.

It’s a shame that the 7’s haven’t been at Kingsholm for the last few years. I think normally it has been a case of not enough time from the concerts, but every time Gloucester hosted an evening it was very well attended (far more than any other stadium).

Hopefully it is something we get a chance to see again.

I used to love this competition. Now I have zero interest. Just flipped over (I’d actually forgotten it was on) to see the start of the Quins match. Harlequins with four Fijiian ringers in their team (cheating in my book) playing in front of three men and a dog. Absolutely pathetic. They've managed to take a good tournament and reduce it to a joke.
