Only 1 change, nice to see some consistency.

Any issues with our new Nagusa, Collet and Williams?

Wouldn't expect Wilson, Welch or Graham to be left out of a full-strength 23 so going to be tough for anyone wanting the 4th spot.

Nagusa and Williams wern't involved in the A team game at Worcester although Collet was however as has been mentioned many many times we are unlikely to find out if they are injured or not due to management's policy of keeping details to themselves unlike lots of other clubs who print a list of who is not considered due to injury etc.

Johnny Williams limped off v Edinburgh, so maybe a slight twinge? Plus for the first few games Deano is bound to stick with his trusts lieutenants, then maybe tweak a few things.

I really hope to see more creativity in the backs this weekend. We could have taken Saracens on Sunday with a bit of intelligence.

Good side.

Their bench doesn't look that strong...could be key.

Awful first 15mins......22-0 down! Defence is non existent and Flood is having a mare.

32 points conceded after 27 mins. What on earth is going on down there

Hammersly is offering in attack but his defence is non existent. A lot of team errors with flood giving pens away and throwing an intercept. Mavinga seems to be a revelation in attack which is good.

Embarrassing performance so far. Defence, passing and handling terrible. Luckily, Tigers have a poop defence so we have a chance still.

Shocking performance. Made it oh so easy for Leicester.

Flood has been an absolute embarrassment. Heís missed kick from the tee and in hand, gave away needless penalties and missed tackles. He has to come off at half time.

Leicester are pretty much scoring whenever they have possession and vice versa with us. Flood not finding touch has potentially resulted in a 14 point difference. I'd give him 10 more minutes and then bring on hodgson if the cricket score continues. C'mon falcons one more try for a league point atleast and we can assess later!

Conceding a point per minute in the first half is unacceptable.

At least Iím not watching it, I feel for the travelling support spending money to view that.

If players arenít delivering then we do have a squad to use which Iím sure Richards will as he wonít accept that.

We just canít shake these performances where we just donít turn up.
