Should be a very very good game.
Burns has played well TBH bar his injury V Sale.

close between the two Williams wasn't on top form V glous.

Also bit of rotation considering Saints Away is next game aswell.
Williams nearly cost Tigers the game against Gloucs. with his poor form esp. in the 1st half.

Burns is playing for a seat on the plane to Oz, so will probably play at full throttle.

Tualagi v Danty will be worth watching.
That's what we want to see from Manu!

Best pass I've ever seen him give.

...it was Manu, wasn't it?! (I'm not watching all that closely)
At the game & were playing well. Looking dangerous when we have it. Burns has be class
Burns is the man for attack, rather than Williams who is more defensive.

Manu has played well so far, in fact all of the Tigers have had a good half, apart from their loosehead who doesn't seem to know what he's doing.
Is Burns back on great form?

Burns at his best = England challenger
IMO yes he has been in brilliant

England challenger ATM no, but Saxons this summer and another season of improvement who knows.

He is being hidden in defence! England.....not a chance!!
Could you tell me the pitch size of Welford Road (Leicester Tigers stadium)? It seems that the ingoal length is too short.
