What a great match! Think Leicester just about shaded it, but both teams left a lot of points out on the pitch. Fair play to them for how they dealt with losing Manu & May so early on. Did think Malouff was lucky not to be red carded for that shoulder to Wade's jaw though.

Very disappointed to lose such a winnable game - with no disrespect to tigers they were there for the taking and we should have put them away. Marty Moore got beasted and in general has never delivered for us. I don't know how Genge will fare scrumagging at international level but positive signs today.

TBH both teams left around 3 tries on the pitch each.
Losing Manu and May at the same time so early, would have made a things alot tougher for us after a great start.

What’s the prognosis on Manu’s injury ? Did it look bad ?

Was annoying watching wasps today, making clean breaks and makimg the wrong decisions or just losing the ball through indiscipline the phase after the try saving tackle.

Not taking anything away from tigers they defended broken field well and deserved the win but wasps should have had that one by a good margin. So fustrating to watch at times

Looking very good for chiefs after this weekend. 8 ahead of sarries and 10 ahead of wasps with 20 only 20 points still available.

Looking at the remaining games chiefs should have nothing to worry about agaonst any of them on paper at least.

Gloucester home
LIrish away
Sale home
Quins away

Gloucester and sale are v good on their day but against Chiefs at sandy park should be to big a task.

Lirish and quins are not really on good form so chiefs should overcome them.

This is all on paper but i really cant see anyone but chiefs topping the table or them being on less than 80+ points

Very surprised they didn't penalise Mulipola for that no arms ruck "clearout" right at the end, seen players carded for that. Came in from a mile out and hit a guy in the head who was having no effect on the ruck.

Exeter do it week in, week out.

If you cant beat them and the refs ignore it, join them.

After a couple of unlucky results at the Ricoh it was nice to win like that yesterday. Overall thought we shaded it, forwards win games. Coped well with the cards and injuries. Thought we missed O'Connor and Williams a tad. Great atmosphere on the terrace.
