Re: Gallagher Premiership Round 6

The citing of Sinckler totally undermines the ref, he heard the comment and dealt with it, what is the point in having a hearing, leave the refs to deal with it, if they do not see it or make a clear error OK but you must allow refs to remain in charge! For me he should have got a yellow card, no w...

Re: Round 5 other fixtures

It is a strange world, we have an offence that actually causes harm (player taken off for HIA) and an offence that does not, which gets 3 weeks and which gets 4?

The TMO should be banned for life if that is the best he can do!

Re: Non playing staff interfering with play

The water carrier was in the technical area behind his barrier and the ball was coming towards him. Instinct to get the ball or sinister, Twelvetrees was an idiot in how he reacted. The water carrier was in his specified area. Strange how we remember things to suit or perceptions but I though the w...

Re: Use it

If the ref has called “use it” a secondary shove should not occur. The scum is effectively over. That depends on the interpretation of the term, use it, IMHO the scrum marching forward is a valid use of a rugby ball, so once the scrum and ball started towards the try line the refs instruction had b...

Re: Exeter overhyped?

the only premiership team to have been profitable in the last two full years This is where I get a little wary, assuming Exeter spend up to the cap, and have a gate of 50% less than of Tigers, how can they possibly produce a profit unless they charge double what Tigers charge? I know this is being ...

Personally, I would be happy if any post that mentions them brackets the word cheats as follows Saracenns (cheats) V Leicester, this should be reviewed after 10 seasons!

Re: Tigers v Chiefs

The ref penalised Cole in the second half when he had hold of the same player throughout the maul, then was told it was for changing his bind, CMK seems to be looking for any reason to give Exeter a penalty and any excuse not to penalise them, I hope the refs do actually watch the game back with an ...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

My hope is, a bit of heart, a bit of shape, having a plan and everyone understanding the plan, that is 4 things we have been missing for several years so I will record it so I can fast forward if it turns into the usual catastrophe!

Sorry my well of hope is down to the last muddy dregs.

Re: Geordan Murphy leaves the club!

Sorry but I find all this Tigers should hang their heads in shame, a bit over the top. Large portions of the population are struggling to keep their heads above water, many on zero hour contracts with no guarantee of income week to week. Record numbers of families are relying on food banks so their...

Re: Geordan Murphy leaves the club!

What a shambles, every week we see more evidence of poor vision, poor planning and poor treatment of honest people. The board are dragging the clubs name through the dirt and poisoning the well of goodwill that exists for the club, every board member should hang their heads in shame. As a fan of ver...

Re: ITA vs ENG ... Handbags or Psychological Edge ?

Fair play to the Italian coaches, for too long the Italian team have been doormats for the other 6N teams so any way they can come up with to get in the faces of the opposition fair play (or not fair) to them, at least it makes a game of it, and I can see some teams loosing it in the face of such pr...

Re: Baa Baas game called off

Whilst Robshaw & Co were total idiots, doesn't mean they should be getting unnecessary abuse which is what I think EJ is referring to. In this case the definition of the words, abuse and unnecessary will vary a lot between various posters, some would regard disembowelment as actually being the mini...
