Tigers started off well, edging the territory and playing sensible rugby, and too the lead with a well-earned penalty. Tackle completed on Lavanini and Parisse stripped the ball, which should have been another penalty but the referee waved play on and, two passes later, Bryce Been was walking the ball in, after selling Murimurivalu brilliantly with a dummy.

A penalty for Toulon after a terrible box kick from Youngs makes it 10-3, and Tigers have had to scramble twice to prevent tries.

A second Toulon try, brilliantly finished, but after Toulon turned the ball over at the ruck by shooting in at the side. Again, not given by the referee.

We had little chance as it was but if Ford is making multiple mistakes then we may as well give up now

Better. Nadolo makes it 20-11.

They need to tackle properly in the second half and stop some of the aimless kicking.

If George and Ben find touch it would help

Maybe if the TMO did something other than tick a box for stopping Fordy nick a metre for a placekick

Too much bad kicking. Again.

And playing like the bunch of strangers they are.

It is hard enough with witless tactics, but factor in the pitch, refereeing [mis]interpretation, no proper introductions to each other and repetitive inaccuracy from supposedly our best players .. all away in France in front an outrageously miscounted, illegal crowd, then essentially we need God on our side

So much for the match that 'matters'



The referee is the final arbitrary
.. dementiaaahll!

Indeed, and the multiple replay of Lavanini not high tackle v no replay of in at the side for second try is the pits

Why are we so unlucky, why do we get on the wrong end of ref blunders?

Unfortunately, again we show what a stupid team we are. We must be the least street wise team in the NH. We give away stupid penalties not cute penalties, we don't have a skipper bending the ear of the ref at the scrum or the breakdown - "in at the side ref", "tackle was completed ref". Other teams give away cute penalties against us - skipper bend the refs ear - "red zone pen sir". I agree we appear to continually be unlucky with decisions, but I don't think it's coincidence or dark forces working against us. Geordan probably never learnt the dark arts at FB hopefully SB is going to make us streetwise again...

Tom Youngs just whines at officials, which doesn't help.

Ford kicks the penalty ball dead. Did someone replace him with his brother for this game?
