"I Feel Sick" - Devastated Geordan Murphy Reflects On Yet Another Disappointing Result

"I Feel Sick" - Devastated Geordan Murphy Reflects On Yet Another Disappointing Result
By Maurice Brosnan

Friday night's 29-15 loss against derby-rivals Northampton leaves Leicester Tigers in 10th place with five games to go. It's been a horrendous year that leaves head coach Geordan Murphy with a huge task on his hands.

At the end of 2018, Murphy said he was "devastated" and "embarrassed" by recent results and they haven't improved since then. The former Irish international did not shirk responsibility on Friday night and said after the game, "We need to drive forward and get more out of ourselves, me included."

“I feel sick, to be honest. It was incredibly disappointing."

It's a sense the squad seem to reflect. Speaking to the club's official social media, England prop Ellis Genge was equally damning about the clubs form.

Geordan was speechless and having been part of those golden eras you can imagine how much it hurts. This is a tough one to take and we were second best in the breakdown and scrum and Saints were class.

I don’t know what it is down to, but one thing can assure the fans is that boys are not going to shy away. It is the darkest place the club’s been in for a fair few years and I appreciate all the frustrations and the feelings of the former players who have put so much into the shirt over the years and we are hurting just as much as everyone else.

It doesn't get any easier for the side, with Exeter Chiefs next up before an away game against relegation rivals Newcastle.
