IT'S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM – GEORDAN MURPHY

Leicester Tigers last game, which saw them in a showdown at home with the Northampton Saints, ended in a 27-20 win for Leicester.

With this result, they have been able to book a place in the semi-finals of the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

The recent win has been much of a major boost for the team as Geordan Murphy reiterates that it isn’t all doom and gloom for the team.

So far in the competition, this has been Leicester’s third successive win. It therefore means that the likes of Gloucester, who are second in Pool Four, cannot meet up with them. Thus, for the Tigers, a last-four spot is one timely boost.

Leicester had been left reeling after Richard Cockerill, their director of rugby was sacked, and the Glasgow Warriors thrashing them to a humiliating 43-0 defeat.

Murphy, who serves as the assistant coach for Leicester was quite delighted to have beaten the Northampton Saints, even though the Tigers have been much more accustomed to fighting for the Champions Cup and the Aviva Premiership.

Speaking about the turn of events so far for the team, the assistant coach had said,

"I have been here 20 seasons and I don't remember having such a tough run of games. Emotionally, it can wear you down.

"But I believe that if the guys who take to the field play with the passion they did today, we can compete with anyone. It's not all doom and gloom.

"We have got some work to do because we are in a hole. The only way you can get out of the hole is to grab a spade and dig. We will work and get out of that hole."

Tigers now sit at 13 points with one round of fixtures left.
