    The elusive Tom Cheeseman...
    So much was spouted about him - the future for Wales at outside centre, yet has he ever done anything?

    ideally a Leicester win after another period of extra time and the same again next week please!

    Cheeseman? I haven't seen him in the Bath 15 for ages!

    And yeh, a Leicester win hopefully. That way it'll be all the more sweeter to see their dreams of the double evaporate against 'Quins and Leinster in their respective finals..

    Lawl, Lions ace Ellis benched in favour for a French reject - saying that, he should be in contention for France. Much better player than Ellis...

    yeah it wouldn't work for me on the BBC Sports page or GP site so if you go to www.bbc.co.uk/leicester the link should work through there.

    Hipkiss scores the Tigers first try. Poor tackle by Abendanon.

    at least there's a modicum of sense from the co-commentator. Leicester should be a lot further ahead from the sounds of it, will it cost like it did last week.

    Better than Sexton for the Lions calls!

    Also, Crane > Croft.

    Murphy > Everybody.
