Glos were woeful today
I gave up looking through my fingers after 12 knock ons, being beat up in the scrum and poor kicking etc.

It was only compounded by the passage of play that sarries gave away penalty after penalty & CMK not reach into his pocket.

So we lost to an under strength Leicester team last week and lost to an under strength Saracens team this week. From the possible ten, nine or eight points possible, we managed a paltry one. We could, and should have been top by at least four points but have now slid down the pecking order after a promising start to the season. It is simply not good enough.

When I look back at the 4 games so far, I think to myself ‘have we actually played well?’. The answer is simply no. We were lucky against Sale. We didn’t play well against Wasps. They were just worse than us really, personally. I don’t even want to mention last week and today. Humiliating really. I think at present, our position in the table actually makes us look better than how we have been playing. If Sale got their last minute penalty in round 1, we’d be in 9th right now.

I know the French don’t travel well, but if we play the same as we have these past 2 weeks, a cricket score won’t be out of the question.

Johan Ackermann was disappointed with the performance today and said the boos were an "easy motivation" for Saracens. The full transcript of his post-match press conference is here: http://bit.ly/BoosEasyMotivation

Scrum looked better with changed props on. Played most of 2nd half without a proper 2nd row but still the scrums, mauls, etc looked better.

Did you even watch the game?

This is probably my most damning comment - it felt like a pre-Ackermann performance. The pack just haven't been good enough this season and lucky to have 2 wins.

Have to say, I didn't notice many boos.

Think you've been a bit generous with some of those scores. Marshall has been the only stand out player over the last four games. Morgan had a good game. Otherwise our forwards look softer than cheesecake right now
