Anyone? As Wardy said the team needs to get back on the horse and prepare for the next game on Monday.

Toulouse defence very well organised.
London back to there old ways of too many penalties, and not respecting the ball.

Our attack looked very disjointed with one up plays and none of the flair shown from previous game. Defensively lots of dropping off tackles and allowing the offload. Toulouse ran some really good lines and hit the ball at pace something that is missing in our game. A well deserved win for the French outfit, poor performance from london

Disorganised. Players not expecting the ball, slow directionless passes from the ruck, number of players were pretty much anonymous in attack. Started to panic a bit when behind and lost composure. It was wet and miserable and we didn’t play the conditions, no plan B. Lack of nous in the ruck which slowed our play down without benefit of penalties. Goal line defence was at times all over the place. Picked up a little at the start of second half but died off very quickly against a well organised and disciplined defence. Far too many yards made by Toulouse forwards going forward, we failed to put them down rather too often. Though that also appeared to be the case with even their smaller players.

Bad day at the office? Thought it was going to be a breeze? Minds more on Monday than the game in hand? Got parity in the second half, but Toulouse didn’t need to do anything and didn’t really try.

You might have got the issue SR, at home so far we have been dominant with the main “ challenge teams” not stretching us. Toulouse turn up I think we maybe went into this over confident, assuming it was going to be business as usual.
I was pretty impressed with the French, I suspect this year they will not fade like last year.
Easter can be the defining point of a season, Mon we need the points, two losses would not be good

No it wont. Not the best but frankly, beat the French at the Bash and away, 1:1 with the challengers and no slip ups, we'll be fine and that is completely conceivable. TO took us on a bad day at the office.

Finish first or second makes little difference.

Toulouse were big, strong, well organised and fired up. We hung back in defence and gave them bags of time then couldn't cope with their size and power coming at us with pace. Toulouse also completely controlled the ruck speed and we didn't get a quick ptb all game. Very impressed with TO especially in the conditions.

Looking at the Easter results, the perceived weaknesses in the squad is now coming to bite us.
