Re: Cockers on the move!!

I'm sorry but it should if they are good enough not just because they are academy. So who were Cockers boys exactly? I lost a fair bit of faith the year we signed 3-4 players from Trevino who were all distinctly average at best. Recruitment at the time was awful and as I’ve said before, cockers did...

Re: Cockers on the move!!

Nothing against Cockers per se but Edinburgh lost 10 of their 16 league matches last season and managed just one win from five outings in the Rainbow Cup according to the BBC

not sure any Tigers fan would suggest a DOR with that record had done well here so surprised Cockers gets a pass from some

Re: THE BIG ONE - Wasps (A) - 12th June 2021

Thought Pearce had a good game - he’s definitely improved to become pretty consistent over the past few seasons. Dare I say CMK seems to be on a similar improvement curve too or is it that Foley, Tempest and Dickson are that bad that he looks close to competent by comparison? Anyway more interesting...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

Hmm. I'm rather surprised that he didn't have any other offers apart from a mid-table French ProD2 club that is most unlikely to be challenging for promotion to the Top14. But over here, it's been billed as a big signing for Carcassonne. He’s got something about him but maybe he wasn’t happy playin...

My money with our luck is Genge and Wigg to get cited
Wiese, Leibenberg, Wells, Montoya as well just for being nearby
Add in Borthwick for being mean to the chosen one Lam.
It’s all Geordan Murphys fault

Re: BRISTOL (H) - 5th June 2021

It shouldn't have come down to those last minutes, though. The dropped passes, forward passes and muffed line-outs in the first half meant we were not in the position we could have been. I’m sure that will be Borthwicks message to the squad and make sure we win it before it gets to that point. As a...

Re: BRISTOL (H) - 5th June 2021

Will be interesting to see what happens with potential citing's after that scuffle. My prediction - nothing clear and obvious so no-one gets cited. The reason - to draw a veil over the performance and decisions of the match officials which will be the main objective of PRL and the administrators. M...

Re: BRISTOL (H) - 5th June 2021

In my view, Tempest just wanted the game to be over as it was straying too far into a candidate to appear in the "What happens next" slot. TMO can intervene for foul play but not fouls if I understand it correctly. So, a punch or high tackle but not a foul as in picking out of a ruck. That he can d...

Re: Montpellier’s Form - Challenge Cup Final chat

I thought the turning point was Bismarck Du Plessis coming on. He almost singlehandedly stopped our rolling maul and added another level to their physicality, winning collisions and turnovers and generally settling them down. Unfortunately it nullified our main attacking threat and in open play we j...
