Re: England v Wales

I really can’t imagine that Mark Wilson won’t be starting the big games. I’m excited to see how Ludlam gets on.

Re: England Treviso training camp

No Cips, no Goode, two of the most versatile and talented players who are England qualified. Rugby by brute force and numbers then? Successive coaches have consistently not picked Cipriani, and Goode has never performed particularly well when he has been selected for England. I think our first choi...

Re: Elitism in Rugby

The best kids tend to get offered scholarships and move to private schools. :smt017 not too big a mystery as to how that could skew the number a bit. Not aware of this happening with other big sports in the uk, excerpt potentially cricket.

Wilson confirmed to go on loan to Sale.
Yes I really was hoping Tigers might push the boat out on this one, I know he will miss a fair bit of the season but in big games exactly the kind of player we have been sorely lacking.

The only Canterbury kit worth buying was the black strip.
Both the home and away shirts in 13/14 were very good imo as was the home shirt in 14/15.
Totally agree! The black and charcoal tiger stripes European shirt is probably my favourite kit we have ever had!

Re: New Kit

Canterbury is the best kit maker by a country mile, playing kit is great but the training kit is brilliant. Most on here whinged like mad when we had Canterbury though so I don’t think anyone can win!! Well, they did give us “the bib”. And a black stripe. And horizontal pin-stripes. And the orange ...

Re: Tigers vs Bath

Did they? Because who was the last exceptional academy player? You don't create exceptional players though. You can improve them. Also the players who came up through those two are still only 21/20. Ok I agree with that, but compare our home grown players that age profile to Saints (very fair compa...

Re: Tigers vs Bath

Don’t post on here often anymore, but just have to say I totally agree that keeping the coaching in the ‘#tigersfamily’ is ludicrous in 2019. I’m sorry to say it because I’m sure he’s a nice bloke-but ho can Matt Smith legitimately be the best candidate to be the head of the academy?! He’s been coac...

Re: Who has been our worse signing?

I think it’s a bit much to say that Joe Ford doesn’t deserve to wear the shirt. From what I’ve seen whenever he’s played he’s worked his balls off, so get off your high horse. We’ve had back up 10s who have tried far less hard. Pez and Burke spring to mind.

Croft
Waldrom
Salvi

I think that’s the most recent back row we have had that was any good
Still cant understand why JC consistently got selected over Waldrom !

I think he'd be a very good short term signing. Our back row needs a real overhaul in my opinion.

Re: Is the playing squad up to the job?

In response to the topic, no. Our back line is exceptional. Our second and back row options are not good enough to compete. We don’t get front foot ball consistently enough to exploit defences. The lineout has been pretty dire all year too which is a massive problem. The number of missed opportuniti...
