Borthwick: Tigers must 'learn' from every game
“In terms of our performance, we asked right at the start for effort from the players and that was unquestionable,” said Borthwick as Tigers finished the game on attack and pushing for a try. However, Exeter walked away with the full five points leaving the hard-working Tigers with a zero in the points column for their efforts.
Which of course leads one to question why Borthwick would select such an inexperienced side in his first outing as head coach?
“We made mistakes and there are things to learn but the effort and attitude were outstanding.
“Credit to Exeter for the way they played. We gave them a few opportunities and a side like that will put you under pressure and take those opportunities.”
Tigers return to action in Round 15 of the Premiership at home this weekend with a fixture behind closed doors while Bath makes the 130 mile trip to Leicester.
