Re: New World Rugby Law Trials

Yep - that’s my recollection of rucking but I think in the modern day it just means pushing the opposition off the ball whilst it’s on floor. I would be happy if we saw more of that rather than missiling and players off their feet and past the ball which seems de rigeur these days

Favourite Players

Let’s eulogise about our favourite Tigers players ...... and why ..... for me it Alex Tuilagi although Tom Croft is a close second. Loved nothing more than when Alex was set free on the wing with 2-3 players to beat and he dipped his left shoulder and busted through them ... a thing of brutal beauty.

Re: England v Ireland

The World Cup warm ups also count so I think you need to add on Manu’s involvement in these (and George , Johnny and YBY)

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

We don’t need relegation - we are already Championship standard

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

To all those saying we are only 6 points off 4th. Mathematically that maybe correct but unless something changes we are relegation fodder

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

Saints not only outplaying is but outthinking is. 2 experienced World Cup finalists at 9 and 10 constantly kicking the ball down the throat of Saints players whilst they are a man down. Meanwhile they kick to the corners to run the clock down

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Given Cipriani’s past I think he may be talking about a different kind of cap :smt040

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Can’t see why there would be any tax issues - co-investment property companies with the senior players would have to file tax returns. Any surreptitious payments to players through Sarries would still be tax deductible even if they weren’t declared to the salary cap authorities. The only dodgy eleme...

Re: Worcester v Chiefs

Oh how times have changed though - a few seasons ago would have wanted Wuss to win to take points of our rivals. Now I wanted Exeter to win for the same reason!

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester

Another area we need consistency from the refs and this one is easy as it’s fairly black and white. There was an incidence in the World Cup - might have been Aus vs Wales but I forget - when despite the kick going over the posts after time was up the referee said there would be a restart. How can he...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester

That’s correct - it should have been the last kick of the match as penalty was definitely awarded with less than 60 seconds left. Hopefully someone has a word with Hardwick as that could have spoilt what was an excellent performance by the lad.

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester

Hardwick should be playing 10 and Reid 12 - their preferred pisitions I believe - and based on last weeks game. Any coach that doesn’t see that is dumb. Another week with zero points IMHO.

Re: Northampton vs Quins

When Cockers and Mauger were sacked in short order we needed a non-Tigers experienced coach which the board were scouring the world for. We ended with MOC as he was available and had the phone number and the ear of the right person on the board. Following the debacle of his time in charge and its de...
