So any clues as to who it is or a link to the news item?
Nothing in the post to discuss.
I was very gently making a contrast Tigerbeat...

New head coach announced (ABs)

Good piece of clear and positive PR from NZ announcing a head coach change in good time.

Re: Tigers v Calvisano - Teams up!

Yes indeed it does look like a complete non-contest. 26-0 last I looked. Whether this justifies the strong team we fielded, who knows. I just hope no-one we cannot do without gets injured...

Re: Tigers v Calvisano - Teams up!

Leinster are everything we’re not. Seriously impressive second half v Saints. Bit of a reality check for our neighbours...

Re: Tigers v Calvisano - Teams up!

Leinster (now five tries with a healthy lead) taking it to Saints. Hope someone is taking notes.

As are Sarries, looking at their team selection today.
You’re not wrong. It will be interesting to reflect back on the different strategies as the season progresses...I really hope we are the ones with the sensible strategy

Murphy needs a win and the club needs to ensure the ground is not empty.
I worry about these over the longer term...winning the ‘battle’ is no good if we lose the ‘war’

Re: Tigers v Calvisano - Teams up!

I was a little surprised by the team selection for this fixture. Frankly, the GP must take precedence, and I would have rested more of our international/first team players accordingly. All I can see is that a short term gain (a win hopefully) is overshadowing everything else. Maybe it’s needed. Do o...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

I would have thought, given the large scale disappointment in the fan base, that the club would issue some kind of statement. "We've identified and appointed a new coach, however they will not be able to start until April." "We are in the process of reviewing the coaching set up" "We know performan...

I returned to the TV just in time to see a Tigers overthrown lineout lead to Saints fifth try... :smt005
I don’t blame the players - they’re trying hard.

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

After four tries against (the last during a man advantage) I am unsure I can keep watching. Whatever the game plan was, I am unsure that kicking continually to Saints backs is the right idea. They must think Christmas has come early! Boyd has certainly done an excellent job coaching Saints.

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

I’d say their bench looks pretty strong. Might come down to relative quality of replacements (if we can stay in the game)
