Re: Sale game moved - Teams up

Thought the half backs were really poor today, kicked the ball away really badly whenever we were in a promising attacking position, and we do look a bit clueless about how to do it when it’s time to turn the tempo up. Huge improvement from last season in terms of personal and the nuts and bolts of ...

Re: 3rd January 2021 v Bath

Weisse was a well deserved MOM. The best 8 we’ve seen at this club for years .. not dissimilar to Simmonds at Exeter steward was a close run thing and gets better every match .. in 2 years he is going to be stunning. Big, strong, powerful, skilful, great under the high ball .. a bit like a young Ga...

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

I think it’s far more likely Youngs will go now than I did before the Italy game. His form has been superb over this international block, he’s been the best of the British and Irish bunch.

Re: Toulon v Tigers - Challenge Cup Semi

Interested to see Steward not in the 23, I would imagine he must be injured? Anybody have any insight on that? I’ve been really enjoying his run in the 1st team.

I think he’s a significantly better player than Taute.

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

I think Burrell is exactly the sort of player we need in the centre and I was hoping we might sign him! I’m
Sure he will do well at Newcastle

Re: Team vs Saints

Deluded. The Club is so denuded of any class; Saints will put 40-50 points on us (Minimum).There is no hope We had 5 BILions in 2009, We had 4 BiLions in 2013, We had 2 in 2017 (inc. 1 who pulled out). We will have none in 2021. I would say there is a good chance we will have between none and 3 but...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

I really think Lavanini has been quite poor. Agree Steward deserves the start at 15.

Re: London Irish

The only way is up.

Ben Youngs played very well, I think we took him off quite prematurely we looked pretty ropey after that.

Re: Manu Tuilagi

I completely sympathise with Manu. We are worse off without him. He was exceptional for Sale in attack in the first half vs Exeter. We could really use some of that front foot ball about now!

Re: Teams up v Bath

I don't get the criticism either. Borthwick has a brilliant opportunity to take a look at the broader squad that he's inherited. Great chance for some of the Tiger cubs to stick their hand up and show what they can do. What have we got to lose, eh?! After all, one of the big criticisms amongst the ...

Re: Teams up v Bath

This is without exception the weakest team that tigers have ever fielded in the Premiership. And it is this complacent nostalgia that has done for Tigers, these past ten years or more. Both on and off the field. We now have an extended pre-season against several Premiership sides. It's a golden opp...

Re: Team for Exeter

The backs... 9. Youngs 7/10 - A quick tap-and-go set the pace and put the Tigers in a great position early on, played at a consistent pace that wasn’t too slow and box-kicked very well (a poor rushed charge down aside), in terms of recent Tigers performances much better from YBY 10. Ford 8/10 - Gre...
