Mike Williams - MOM v Gloucester

Mike Williams first start of the season...

And he deservedly takes the Man of the Match award.

And so is Mike's physicality, and carries, just what Tigers have been missing this season so far ?

It is certainly something that many have been asking for.

Leicester Tigers' Ben Youngs during the Aviva Premiership match at Welford Road, Leicester.

Perhaps the addition of Valentino as well, and then the introduction of Logo from the bench, might just provide a bit more for George Ford to work with, and provide a better platform for Matt Toomua to work with as well.

That is, of course, assuming that Matt will not be out for long following Saturday's injury ?

And that is certainly something that has hampered Tigers for a long time. And so let's hope for quick recoveries, less injuries, and a chance for the team to realise some of the potential that we have yet to really see come to fruition.

First start rather than first game? I thought he did well on both sides of the ball.

He certainly provides some much needed edge. Let's hope his yellow last week for his latest no-arms hit will sink in and help him stop the habit. He's too important to us to keep taking 10 minute rests!

I thought he was outstanding - one of the few who didn't have a huge drop-off after half time. Though my motm was YBY.

I think he needs to do more donkey work as well as the spectacular stuff, a bit like the Exeter forwards, who routinely break the gain line and set up good possession, phase after phase. IMO, we looked better when Mapapalangi came on and Kalamafoni moved to 6.
