Re: Challenge Cup 19/20

It may be just me, but I don't give a monkey's... about this cup. Next season we must be fully focused on the league and I'd use this competition like the other cup to develop new talent, bring in those returning from injury and give those that need it a rest (especially the internationals).

Re: So now we know.........

Interesting comment - in particular the line "Cohen and other members of the Tigers board have been subjected to vitriolic abuse from fans". I cannot help but feel that the abuse was due, at least in part, down to the way this whole affair has been handled and communicated. Prior to this article, on...

Re: Words to describe tonight's performance

In a word - embarrassing. This is the worst home performance I can recall (in over 30 years of following the team).

Re: New sponsor . . .

Raging Bull in answer to: “Question what is the image and values that Tigers stand for?” In my mind it’s about endeavour and passion but also inclusiveness and respect – striving to do the right thing in the right way. Whilst I’m not against gambling per se, I think these gaming companies can be exp...

Re: New sponsor . . .

I know this will not be shared by everyone, but personally, I am very disappointed we are taking on this sponsor. We may need the money but I do not think this, or any other casino/gaming company, project the image and values I understood, and still hope, Tigers stand for. Sponsorship works best whe...

Re: Saturday fixture - what a joke

Hi LE18 - that was my point. It's not just about TV, although it clearly will be a factor (like it is for the soccer clubs).

Re: Saturday fixture - what a joke

I'm a new ST holder and somewhat frustrated by the lack of games on Sat pm. So I have had a very quick look at the number of 'Home' Premiership games played Sat pm (KO between noon & 5pm) up to Round 19 (1-3 Apr) Source: Aviva Premiership website. Sarries 8 Glous/Warriors 6 Bath/Saints/Chiefs/Quins ...

Re: Still stuck in the mud! - Development updates

Thanks Bundy - I've also tickets in the stand so just called ticket Office. Apparently seats should be in place but as there will not be a roof they have also sent out alternatives tickets (in my case Goldsmith stand). But apparently I can use either or both!

Re: Tigers v Quins.....The aftermath.

Okay - so I'm no expert, but I watched the game from the Goldsmith Stand and the one thing that struck me was that many, if not most, of our problems stemmed from the kick off returns. We fumbled put ourselves under even more pressure and were either pinged or cleared very scruffily. The latter argu...
