Leicester Tigers boss Richard Cockerill left fuming by scrum decisions
We try to be really professional and then we have to deal with that. It's just not good enough. It has got to end, enough is enough.
Quotes of the week
Leicester's director of rugby Richard Cockerill criticised referee Andrew Small after his side beat Gloucester 17-12 to move up to second in the Premiership standings.
Cockerill was furious that Leicester did not get what he considered their just reward for dominating the scrums.
"I am lost for words. I have spent 30 years in the middle of scrums. I coach it every day," he said.
"We try to be really professional and then we have to deal with that. It's just not good enough. It has got to end, enough is enough.
"He (Small) needs to look at it and see his faults and try and improve. That's the whole point of coaching, whether you are a referee or a rugby coach.
"Where is the consistency? We have got a massively dominant set piece because we spend money there and coach it and today we did not get the reward we should have.
"Guessing is the word I'd use and it's not good enough. Big games decide championships and European spots. You have to get it right."
Gloucester director of rugby Nigel Davies added: "It was a hard-fought game. We led for large parts, which is testimony to how they work hard for each other.
"If we are honest we were second best at the set piece. It was probably a fair result although we could have snuck it at the end."
