Re: Kobus Van Wyk

Van Wyk posted an Instagram story of him in the gym at Tigers around 2 hours ago. As others have said, if he’s fit he could be thrown into the match day 23 - though the other backs who are likely to be involved have put their hand up too. Kobus Van Wyk cannot play for Tigers on Sunday V Castres as ...

Re: Team vs Saints

Important to keep our heads screwed on for next week, it is good to get the Derby win though. Couldn't watch the game but saw the highlights, what was Lavanini's yellow card for? Also Leatigaga was being a bit silly but was well handled in the end by Barnes and Gengey (although I suspect the former...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Very true but who is available? I wouldn't know, either of Reffell, Tuafua or Wallace come to mind but there may be other better combinations. The game is always going to open up more as it goes on and the side out needed more time to set as the match went on, combined with Wasps increasing the tem...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

We need to be testing the young guns against good teams if we are stretch them and discover their strengths and weaknesses. View every game in terms of the bigger picture. It is a learning curve for all involved. Agreed what great experience for the young players and thanks Wasps for giving this te...

Re: Kyle Eastmond

I was surprised when we originally signed Eastmond, amazed when he had a contract for this season, utterly bemused he had one for next. So was I surprised as he had a terrible last season 2017/18 at Wasps, very poor playing and blighted with injuries and was not in the first call. He was not quickl...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

This Exactly. I can just imagine the furore had Ben kicked the ball out to protect it... No, but Ford should have been telling him, why didnt Ford speak with Lavanini about his 4 penalties, kicked the ball away all game, poor Captain in this match. Perhaps George Ford does not yet speak fluent Span...

Re: Tomas Lavanini

Just watched the interview from the Gloucester match. Tomas comes across as a "caballero de verdad". Great guy!! Agreed Rutland Tiger! I can't understand the antipathy of some towards Tomas. His discipline is much improved from earlier in his career. I'm sure with the right support and encouragemen...

If I’m Hardwick I’m fuming at being dragged there when Olowofela stayed on
I totally agree Olowofela has let 3 in and does not even chase the scorer, just ambles back.
Hardwick should have been left on the wing. Ugh!

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

Personally, I think that the Crumbie stand will not be available for fans as it is currently a red zone, only permitting players and officials plus others who need access but have been tested. Away team have been using the ABC bars for changing. May be able to get people into the stadiums but the b...

Re: Round 17 other games

I've got a big jar of new and old, nuts and bolts in my workshop and decided I needed to get on and sort them out in prep for some DIY. So I emptied the jar and started sorting. Its mind boggling what marries up and what I didn't know I had. I found I have more than enough to get more than a job do...

Re: Teams up v Bath

What we saw yesterday was a very brave selection from our Coaches and I doubt that many other teams would have attempted that against an established team of 12 internationals but it has shown Tigers have the makings of a great young team ~ sorting the wheat from the chaff is necessary and at an idea...

Re: Teams up v Bath

Surprised at the selection but that’s still a pretty decent front 5, excited to see what Martin, Potter and Smith can offer as well as Henry from the back. Good to see Simmons get a start, I know he’s versatile but will be interesting to see how well he can do against Bath’s all-England back 3. Peo...

Re: Other games this weekend Round 14

Jonny May is in Gloucester’s starting XV after an HIA in the last game. Surely not!! Glaws are not short of wingers so May shouldn’t even have been considered. Having seen that collision and really hoped Jonny May would not suffer concussion, I too was very surprised to see his name on the starting...
