    A good few of Toulon's players apparently have the flu, so maybe it'll be a tight match...

    Why are Tigers starting Burns?
    They've put out a really strong side but then have Williams on the bench.

    It's what we did against Sale.

    Cockers is prob giving Burns some game time in a game where we need a TBP really, if come 30 minutes left it's looking a bit tight we bring on Ayerza, Youngs, Kitchener, Barbieri, Harrison and Williams against hopefully tired opposition and put them to the sword.

    Given how much Ulster have been playing I'll take losing by less than 20. Happy to be surprised mind you.

    WTF are Tigers doing discipline wise? I know they can be a penalty machine but usually only where necessary! Crane has not rolled away once and now look....Kitchener off and a Scarlett try! This game should be over and now only three points in it!

    Tigers have picked up a 12 gauge and shot themselves in the foot with it. Total control to a shaky three point lead because they can't behave. Weird.

    You could even argue they're lucky, if it hadn't been for a really poor line out they could actually be losing a game they've dominated. Both sides will feel they're being sloppy

    Yeah for sure, i suspect they're getting a hairdryer from Cockers (does that sound dirty?) and will come out like a stuck pig in the second half.

    That try only emphasizes why this match should be over!!

    I agree about Priestland......he has been the go to for Scarlett's and those who have chased him out of Wales should hang their head in shame!!!

    PS hats off to Burns tonight....he has not put a foot wrong tonight and has sealed Cips's move to France as he has no chance of seeing an England cap now while Lancaster is in charge!!
