Re: It just gets worse for Saracens

The panel sits at 18:00 on Friday but which Friday? Not today I guess. My wife’s got a big soft spot for Glasgow Warriors and a distaste for Sarries. She’s ultra keen to see the Warriors reinstated.

Re: What Now For Our Season?

Out of interest does anyone know, if we get past Castres in the Q/F, is it predetermined which opponents we would face in the S/F i.e the winners of another specific Q/F? Also are the Challenge Cup S/Fs on neutral grounds (god forbid not the Forest ground again) and, if so, how is it determined whic...

Re: BYE

I’ve been keeping a weather eye out for Noddy as he used to take the train from Derby, haven’t seen him all season. I dropped him a direct line too, no response. I do hope he’s OK.

Re: French rugby

Great to watch a spirited Castres team win yesterday but I was saddened to hear the 3 of their supporters lost their lives, and others were injured, in a coach crash following their semi-final.

Re: Castres vs Tigers

Seconded.
ps: Tigers outnumbered Gloscaster fans 4-1 on this morning's Toulouse flight. Not bad for a dead rubber.

Re: Tigers v SArries

Can’t wait for Sunday. Sarries have lost 6 on the trot and some are predicting a record home defeat. The worlds gone mad.

Re: Bath vs Tigers

I loved seeing Harry Thacker’s devotion to the cause. In what can’t have been the easiest of weeks for him, with the announcement of a world class hooker arriving shortly, he gave his all and motivated those around him. I just hope he stays with us (and that the Catweasle thing is just a phase he’s ...

Re: Champions Cup Fixtures

Does anyone know which stand the Tigers fans will tend towards for the Munster away game? East or West?
Tickets aren’t on sale yet but, for info, Munster are putting them on general sale on Friday 13th Oct.

If you see a grown man crying in D Lower today it could well be me if Tiffany walks by. Fair play to her and Tom.

Re: Champions Cup Fixtures

Thanks. Shame there's nothing viable from East Mids airport but Stansteds not that far.
Will be wearing a Tigers shirt proudly on the day however I get there.
Made for a fun day out in Glasgow, amongst the Sarries, fans last year.

Re: Champions Cup Fixtures

Thanks for that. Looks like Stansted it is, just got to wait for the May flights to become available. Wish I could do it as a road trip but wife's job trumps my pleasure.

Re: Champions Cup Fixtures

Fortunately, I booked the accommodation when the dates were released, and the match tickets (inc Challenge Cup) too. The travel logistics are perplexing me at the mo but hopefully one of the budget airlines will deliver nearer the date. At the mo it's all £300 plus fares and 11 hour journeys via Par...

Re: Champions Cup Fixtures

Has anyone got any suggestions on a cost effective route (swimming has already been ruled out) for getting to from East Mids to the European Champions Final in Bilbao?

PS: I know its unlikely that we'll be in the final.
