We've lost the ref but he is seemingly g to be incredibly biased to Toulon and his communication is terrible

Yep certainly some questionable decisions but not sure we're helping ourselves

Not offering much attacking threat at all.

Theo B-C deserves a lot of credit. Played really well at full back.

That is the only standout moment so far. Very quick for a big man.

20-26 full time. Mixed emotions after that one, a lot of heart and effort out there and we did extremely well to stay in the hunt after going down to 13 men.
Attacking shape looked quite nice I thought, we made decent meters but just lacked that final pass.
Discipline and maul probably the main things to work on ahead of bath

Only caught the final 10 or 15 mins, there were a few positives in that period, the stand out being Barney's bullocking run. We're getting a nice stable of powerful running locks

Just in, a very encouraging performance.

Apart from the rolling maul, which we never got going in attack and struggled to defend against, we matched a very strong Toulon team, and actually looked much better and more fluid when we had the ball in the backs..

Paddy played beautifully, some of his passing was a delight.

Ruan and Bertie were absolute beasts going forward.

Poor discipline and an clown of a referee basically cost us the game.

Agreed that Paddy played well apart from the kicks through the defensive line where we really had no one with pace to chase through for the ball.

Did anyone watching online get a good view on the high tackle on OHC by the touchline about 60 mins through? It looked like a clear card in real time from a few seats back but was only given as a penalty on consultation with the assistant
