Re: 1st Team quality needed to win titles

Mike Fitzgerald has been a great signing. He is a second row who can play 6 and has filled in admirably during Mike Williams admirably . Really want to see his partnership with Barrow develop next season, I'm afraid Slaters time has gone, but a back 5 of Barrow, Fitzgerald Williams O Conner and Hami...

Re: Tigers v Sarries - Saturday 21st May at 12-30

start of next season honestly I would start Harrison ahead of youngs who I feel needs a bit of a kick up the bum ATM. Very very very talented player but needs to work on his fundamentals (Bar box kicking which is on point for a 9). Think he needs to decide what type of 9 he is, at the moment he is ...

Re: Tigers v Sarries - Saturday 21st May at 12-30

After their, European win Saracens were either going to be amazing or woeful. Unfortunately there was far more of the first and 10 minutes of the 2nd. The obvious thing to was lack of leadership. Tait just cannot do it from fullback and Slater at best will be 4th choice lock next season. On Tom Youn...

Re: Wasps hire Beale

Surprised the Aussies are letting him go. With Tomua coming to us that leaves them without both their first choice 12s

Re: Mobile Crane on the move?

No one can doubt the service he has given to the club. The frustration for me was a few years ago when playing for the Saxons when he turned into this off loading ball player, but as soon as he was back at Leicester he returned to type. Maybe he was playing to instructions

Slade is a fantastic rugby player, but imho he is 10 and potentially a world class one. Any club that could offer him the 10 shirt would be of interest to him

Could be a good replacement for Bell.
Surprised at that, very good player, but won't get past Goode at 15. Type of player who would fit well into the style Tigers are trying to develop

Re: Rugby Players' Association Young Player of the Year

I suppose it will go to Maro Itoje but I would love Harry to get it, he will pose a serious threat to Tom Youngs next season for the number 2 shirt. He will be 3rd choice hooker at best next season Steady on. Tom's got to be given a chance to get back into the side before we cast him off. I meant T...

Re: Development Squad

You can add Povoas to that list Raging Bull. My understanding is that all 3 of them have played in National 2 this season and have hardly set the game alight. If they can't shine at level 4 I would suggest that the premiership is a step too far. Time to let go and let them find their level

Re: Team for Bath

The Burgess affair has ruined Baths season as it did England's World Cup. The only way forward is for the top man to be let go and for them to start again with a good squad of players a la England

George Smith on his way out, Haskell not the player he was, Nathan Hughes to be with England. Would make sense, doesn't always start for Toulon these days
