Re: Will games get cancelled?

You've lost me Loretta. Regardless of how this season ends Sarries will be in the Championship ,why would that change? Or am I missing something? As I understand it, the mechanism for relegating Sarries was to inflict a huge points deduction, which was intended to ensure that they ended at the bott...

Re: Are we in the worst league?

I think the caterpillar is a frustrating sight for the fans. Especially when the players involved are often not even properly bound! For me it is frustrating when refs tell players to use it and then don't pernalise those who exceed the permitted 5 seconds. I would reduce 5 seconds to 3 and instruc...

Re: Tigers vs Bristol - 04th January 2020

You're spot on there, Bristol were allowed to run and outflank the Tigers defence all too often, making 20,30,40 yards or more all too easily. Sometimes this was after yet another poor pointless kick when Tigers were attacking, of which, again, there were too many. The result being that Tigers got ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

The funny thing is in my opinion is they never even had to cheat. You take out some high earners say hypothetically Figallo, Skelton, L Williams and Taylor, they still would have won the league with the players they have. And of course this is why it is absolutely impossible to award the titles to ...

Re: ENG vs NZ - RWC Semi

Now I have a tension headache after that match. I am also conflicted about who I would prefer to see in the final. I am nervous about the threat posed by S Africa and it would make it doubly satisfying to beat Wales in the final. However, I'd also like to see Wales lose in the Semis. Ultimately I'd...

Re: cashless madness - or is it??

Very impressed that some posters have done so much research into the equipment and systems being used by the club and conducted an in depth cost analysis to determine they are using "cheapo kit". Or was the thought process a bit less logical and a bit more grumpy-old-man-rant? Well I can only speak...

Re: PRC Round 4 - Tigers vs Saints

Have never seen so many high tackles go unpunished- player welfare obviously not important :smt018 To be honest... I was more bothered that there were so many "punished" - but there was no escalation! There must have been at least 5 high tackle penalties! :smt012 (obviously not including those that...

Re: Severity of injuries and high tackles (official figures)

Are high tackles responsible for all concussion injuries? Low tackles (Chop tackles) where the knee impinges on the head are equally dangerous. Likewise head to hip. Likewise head to head in a friendly fire double tackle. I've always hated the "chop" tackle, I always wince when someone does one eit...

Plus Ford and Eastmond did tear everybody to shreds for Bath back in 14/15, so potentially that could happen for us too.
Yeah, including us!

I for one am pleased that Eastmond will be in green, white, and red rather than not! At his best he is utterly electric.

5th :smt002 but the point does stand. The league is massively competitive this year and one win can take you right up the table!

Re: Tigers v Exeter

We had someone (can't remember who... Thompstone? Veainu?) carded last year for a deliberate knock on on near the half way... think there was a PT awarded too! The frustrating to me is always the apparent inconstancy e.g. why was the Worcester player not penalized for a deliberate knock on in the re...

Re: Wasps v Tigers

He got scragged twice(?) when he made a wrong decision but other than that he was very good. I must admit I was one of skeptical ones when Ford re-signed, but the two areas of significant weakness that he had last season have all but vanished - kicking is right up there and I've only seen him end up...

Re: Well done Quins

Exeter are the best team at the moment, all the other teams are capable of beating each other, it's going to be very hard to predict the top four or even the top six, great for rugby. Don't put them on a pedestal; they are just as beatable as any of the others - nowhere near the same invincibility ...
