He threw a loopy nothing pass for an intercept try last week. He's always good for a head in hands moment or two each game.

What's with Cooper-Woolley? At Wasps he was our starting tighthead, now he's getting 3 minutes off the bench? I can't imagine he came cheap.
He and John have shared the shirt this season, both have shown up really well. When taking Harrison and Ooisthuizen into account, I can't remember the last time we had two quality options at 1 & 3 :o
Massive win for us, that. Keeps us in the top 2 with 6 home and 4 away games to come :smug:

Good to hear he's being used.

I can't remember a time when you didn't use Harrison for 70+ minutes a game :D.

Neither can I! He's incredibly durable, but playing less every week will be good for him. Will mean he can go full throttle rather than knowing he'll have to go for nigh on 80 every week :lol:
We're lucky at loosehead - Ooisthuizen is a great experienced, physical option and Morozov is a serious prospect as well - he's going to be a top-class player.
As an aside, Glenn Delaney adds some nice detail on commentary - I'd like to hear more from him.

I think Ashton pulled out in the warmup last week so probably is. Solomona was actually on the bench tonight.

There’s also a lot more caution/awareness around concussion now; back when I played colts in the early noughties a fair few of us would play a colts game on Saturday and then play for the senior 2nds or 3rds the day after and I can think of lots of occassions where guys carried on playing after getting concussed and then played another game the following day (it was even seen as a badge of honour to do so) - farking stupid and dangerous in hindsight!

Quins showing up better than I expected here. That's the interesting thing about this league, hump the second placed team one week, then parity with the seventh placed team the next.
Despite the weather, the game hasn't descended to the depths of the Glaws game !

[globus]I've played rugby with the ref doing the Tigers Wuss game. Admittedly it was summer touch, but still. Absolutely ripped us all apart, and chased down the nippy little bugger who'd be running around us earlier.[/globus]

Dombrandt looking pretty physical in the tackle. The yank 12 runs the lines tuilagi should be.

Woodburn just dived straight off his feet to seal off ruck before that was scored :uhoh:

Ismail is a lumbering donkey in defence, sadly

Not watching, but Chiefs seal off routinely, straight in, off feet, done. They do it so often that refs just don't bother calling it anymore unfortunately.

EDIT - Oh, look at that, Lavanini being a tit (no card/pen, just handbags).

Robbed by that decision, Christ. No feel for the game whatsoever. Can't believe he didn't just wait to see what happened on a turnover scrum a few yards out. Just appalling.

He just refuses to play advantage holy shit

You mean he blew for a pen try, instead of letting you play advantage on it?

Well, that's probably the right conclusion to the match albeit via the wrong method. I'm with Kay, not sure there was enough there for the PT.

I’m happy with the penalty try as a neutral, endless infringements. White was a yellow at the start of it all laying on the wrong side. Deffo thought quins had snatched defeat.

There was an earlier scrum where he inexplicably blew for the pen (admitted the error later) rather than play an advantage which would hae seen Quins socre (they'd kept playing despite the whistle).

I mean that had he correctly just decided it was a penalty not a penalty try, advantage would likely have seen a try. Obviously not complaining we benefited from a poor decision to give the try!

Think he means the one where the ref blew as quins scored.

No, not referring to that though clearly that one was a shocker.

Very happy with the win and the performance, when I saw the two teams I thought we would get a paddling

I was going to say, not sure what sort of advantage a ref could give that's better than a guaranteed 7 :D.
