Nothing left to realistically play for so they're saved themselves for another day. 'appens.
I agree, it happens. But last year when it understandably happened to Pro12 teams there was more talk of being left behind etc.

There have been quite a few mismatches this year.

A few teams can cite injury problems to a point, but there have been some unexpected dickings.

Then this year you can proudly declare that the AP sides have been left behind.

People are full of shit though.

Every game leads to some seismic predictions about the state of rugby.

Remember after the RWC when NH rugby was a disgrace and light years away from the SH?

Say what you want about Cockerill, but I'm sure he wouldn't have presided over a performance so gutless, disinterested and lacking in heart. There is ZERO fire in them. Worst half I've ever seen for a Leicester team.

f**king embarassment of the highest order.

I'm not sure who was saying "left behind" - mostly usual suspects bleating about spivs ruining the game and having gold plated squads that can't be matched.

I think most of the talk was how the competition has been ruined and now makes it easy for the English and French. Not a mention of it this year...

Tiggers and Exeter have been a real shock. Both sides capable of playing to a decent level but have all too often dropped off a cliff in terms of performance.

Loving the Weegie offloading game, very good rugby ! Doing Tiggers at the ruck as well .
Some truly mediocre players in the Leicester backs and backrow.

I think Exeter have been pretty unlucky with injuries.

Cant explain how shit Leicester have been - they often have problems but seem to hang on and get stronger near the back end of the season.

Mid table in the AP is a pretty inconsistent place but there must be a slight worry about even being in the RCC next season.

Tigers need a sugar daddy the playing side is really suffering (not just player recruitment other stuff as well). They will do an arsenal otherwise but without a manager capable of holding it together.

Enjoy the freebie, Warriors fans.

I didn't expect a great performance from us, I at least expect us to give it a bash. Not wander from ruck to ruck, waving at attackers and shoddy discipline. The most unprofessional half of rugby from any Leicester team.

See bold - you usually cope with adversity, call ups, injuries, but this year you've fired the coach and been hammered a couple of times.

We have about 6 first team players out which is more than normal

There is something wrong that goes way deeper than money going by this performance. These players aren't so far outclassed to put in such an embarrassing effort.

The fight and desire has gone. There is no shape or structure. Some players look like they're on a (very poor) training session.

We've had a few beatings over the last few years, but this is the worst performance I have ever seen from a Leicester team.

Starting to think Cockers was the man simply holding the club together!
