Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

I'm no doubt going to upset a few here and I make no apology for my opinion, but trying put any dispute over rules aside for a moment I think that helping employees is a good thing just as long as that help is given to all and not just a select expensive few. I do believe that many clubs assist wit...

Re: Premiership Sevens

I personally wouldn't judge anyone from sevens nowadays. It used to be better with more brains on show but pace and fitness have massively taken over. It is so loose that you can do stuff that some of those same players just couldn't perform with no time and space in the fifteen a side game. There w...

What has Tony Blair got to do with it???
IT was just a personal thing.
I've seen far stranger and more offensive things than pull ups accepted in Portugal, Blair being one of them.

Re: Youngs injured in pub brawl

Was in Vilamoura today. No sign of any badly behaved rugby players. Strange that they find a bloke doing a few pull ups in a bar offensive and yet it's fine for some porker in budgie smugglers to do push ups right in front of you on the beach when there are miles of sand unoccupied. It's one of Ton...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

The backs (Toomua etc) are a moot point until the ball carrying improves, the 9 apart who is a key player for any pack of forwards. I've got nothing against backs but the forwards is where it's really at, forwards win games and backs determine by how much. The way the game is set up nowadays (laws/i...

Re: Youngs injured in pub brawl

Just proves that Murphy has no control over the players and it's very clear they have no respect for him. As I've said in previous post there is a group of senior players who run the club. A sorry state. So you think this shows Murphy has no control of the players who were on a night off from train...

Re: Youngs injured in pub brawl

It's just steam. See the Murphy bashers are giving their wings a rest, can't shout and fly at the same time. Reads between the lines to me that security didn't want to get too close and it was likely little more than cheap pot shots on the peace makers. Particularly lucky for the Ronaldo's that Lava...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

Playing at Colorno will give him gametime and being linked to the Tigers the door is ajar for a return either because of form or injury. Some common sense from you two rather than the obvious personal agenda from others. It would seem that others who have been quite average are allowed to develop a...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

There is nothing in the article to suggest that Fred is on loan but I think Fred is possibly a late developer needing regular game time. I believe that it is very possible that in a couple of years young Fred will be a much improved player at eight and could well be of Premiership standard. Whether...

Re: Premiership table 2019/20

3. Saracens I'm not going to predict it, but I wouldn't be surprised if England were to have a good world cup that Sarries struggle in the league. They've got a great team ethic but it's how do you get them back up again after a successful world cup campaign to go again in the league. Have you seen...

Re: Wales 1st in the World?

Shane Williams in the rugby paper banging on again about Wales being “ The fittest team in the world “. How does he draw this conclusion when Wales game plan is so lacking in dynamism that they rarely string more than 3 phases together. Would be interested to hear other views. I think that Wales pl...

Re: England v Ireland

I think there is always an expectation on the home team to perform. The away team often isn't as pumped and gets more of an opportunity to experiment in these warm ups. England have a very strong squad that will compete well with anyone but for them it's how to unlock those tight defence's with the ...

Re: England v Ireland

Good shift from the Tigers boys, especially Manu, great turnover just now and beast ball in hand. All except Youngs, passing hasn’t been to the man, kicking too far. Do like Cokanasiga, but isn’t very dynamic at this level. For me Nowell or Watson on the right wing. England have picked Ireland apar...

Re: England v Ireland

I think a lot of people have forgotten that Ben has barely played since early April. Tough to play at that tempo as well, puts a lot of pressure in the 9s passing game. England's forwards left him a little exposed at times, again if you're going to play at that high a tempo. Hopefully with a bit mo...
