Another game, another defeat for Worcester and after the performance of the season last week at home to Exeter Chiefs, Saturday's loss to Leicester was arguably the worst.

Warriors struggled to handle the powerful Tigers pack and the home side scored four of their five tries from rolling mauls and after the game, head coach Jonathan Thomas said it was a "naive" performance from his side.

With that in mind, the player ratings are not very high but let's go through them.

15. Chris Pennell - 5.5

I almost feel bad giving this man a poor rating on his 250th appearance as he didn't really do anything wrong and he couldn't have done much to change the result. Made a good break at the start of the second half and good hands lead to David's break in the first.

14. Perry Humphreys - 5.5

The backs were not used much as they didn't have a lot of ball throughout. Finished his try really well in the corner.

13. Oli Morris - 5.5

Wasn't allowed any space or ball in which to create anything from but was, as always, brutally good in defence. Intercept try well taken.

12. Ashley Beck - 5

Any ball he got was hardly on the front-foot and his game was limited to tackling, which he did.

11. Nick David - 5

Good break in the first as he burned Van Wyk on the left but that was about all we saw from the nippy winger.

10. Duncan Weir - 5

Left the field with a nasty looking shoulder injury after just 25 minutes.

9. Gareth Simpson - 5

Forwards didn't produce much quick ball so he was unable to show what he is capable of.

8. Cornell du Preez - 4.5

Didn't see much of him, was a bit absent from proceedings.

7. Matt Kvesic - 4.5

Won one turnover but did concede a penalty or two at the breakdown and struggled to make an impact.

6. Marco Mama - 4.5

Another who was quiet. Was subbed early in the second-half for Ted Hill.

5. Graham Kitchener - 5

Sin binned and the lineout was a struggle at times but did pinch the ball at one Tigers lineout and put himself about against his old club.

4. Anton Bresler - 4.5

Was subbed for Justin Clegg early in the second-half and I tend to think the youngster might be beginning to take his place. Didn't have much impact.

3. Nick Schonert - 5

Scrum was a bit up and down but overall the Tigers front-row had the better of their Warriors counterparts. Defensively stood up, however.

2. Niall Annett - 5

One or two lineouts went awry and it's a worrying theme for him but I don't think he's alone in the situation, the lineout is an area of concern for the whole pack.

1. Marc Thomas - 5

Carried well and got around the pitch. Not much luck in the scrum department.


16. Beck Cutting - 5

17. Ethan Waller - 5.5

18. Richard Palframan - 5.5

19. Justin Clegg - 5

20. Ted Hill - 5.5

21. Sam Lewis - 5

22. Michael Heaney - 5

23. Jamie Shillcock - 5.5
