    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)

    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.

    Could you tell me the pitch size of Welford Road (Leicester Tigers stadium)? It seems that the ingoal length is too short.

    Because England's current first choice fly-half is a monster of a defender ;)
