Rodgers: "You need to open the space wide and have bodies on the inside that can break through. You need runners who can break the lines and tire them out. "It might take you an hour, but you’ve got to keep the team running – then you can make the breakthrough.

Rodgers: "The spirit of the walk is fantastic, and they sing Vichai's name in every game. Over the next few weeks and coming years, that will only grow. When someone leaves or passes, it’s the feeling they leave, with fans, staff, players, he’ll never be forgotten here.

Murphy on what success is for Tigers: "Your head always goes to winning trophies. The cold hard facts though are that we were 11th last year. But we’re fitter, we’ve changed the culture, we’re tighter as a unit. If that stays the same we’ll be at the right end of the league."

Murphy says Noel Reid will kick from the tee for Tigers, after missing several kicks in defeat to Saints. "He kicked really well in pre-season and although he missed a few, sometimes that happens in pre-season. It’s good to get the rust out and get a slap in the chops.
