Re: Team vs Saints

If we dont win this one, then it really is as bad as a lot of the Doom Mongers think it is... Vital. I don't see it this way. Pitching Saints as the team we must beat is an emotional response, and emotion is what causes the problems. Saints are one team of 11 we need to beat over a season and nothi...

Re: A new defence coach?

Genuine question. Is an unstructured defence a legitimate strategy? The reason I ask is Barbeary, in his post match interview, said that in planning for the game they knew they could run at Tigers unstructured defence. It sounds like they spotted a weakness but I wondered if such a defence is actua...

I read the winner of the Challenge Cup will replace the 8th placed team from their own league if they haven’t already qualified.
That is what a few on here seem to have suggested which is why I was surprised. For some reason it doesnt appear to apply to the Prem

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Over the last couple of seasons Tigers have disintegrated. We didn't have a ‘team’. It got up and walked off, even with our strongest players on the field; we gave up. Borthwick arrived on July 1st (that's just 51 weekdays ago) but didn’t inherit an established playing squad or coaching team: Thomp...

Re: Remaining fixtures

Did anyone else hear on tonight's commentary that even if Tigers win the Challenge Cup it will not lead to a place in the Champions Cup next season? I wondered about this last week when they were explaining the European arrangements for next season and mentioned about another team winning the Challe...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Tbh I do have to question the game plan before the games it's like we have almost admitted defeat before we go out there!! The attack is almost non existent we kick all the midfield ball away and our attack is so blunt. Last year I felt the players were good enough but weren't trying at all at time...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Well, what is the point of us turning up? We are a complete shambles. Zac Henry one positive. What is the point of blooding these youngsters to just get pumped every game? Hardly breeds any confidence. And just says we are cannon fodder for the other teams. Saints must be over the moon knowing they...

Also, next time we're talking about how our youngsters are "only 22" or whatever and still have loads of time to develop - watch this game back, watch Barbeary, then you'll understand what a top player looks like at the start of his senior career.
Not to mention Umaga at ?21

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Wasps going all out. Looking at various teams I feel we have been rather unlucky in always being against a 1st choice team. We must now be the only team who haven’t played against a weakened opposition. Hopefully it will take its toll on some of these clubs during next season. It was blatantly obvi...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Whilst I think there has been improvement in a number of areas, if we are honest we still have a long way to go. Defence has improved but isn't where it needs to be for Premiership level...since restart, with the exception of LI, we have lost every game by a bonus point win to the opposition without...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

I've been playing cricket all day, come back see the result, think that's a great performance against one of the top teams in the league, but we're slating the performance on here. Let's be realistic we're not going to win a game just because we put out our strongest team, Sale put out their best t...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

Well somebody thinks the coaching team are getting something right...Steve Diamond after today's game: "They are a different team now that Steve [Leicester head coach Steve Borthwick] has got hold of them. They fight for everything. It's the hardest game we've had this season." And I am not a Steve ...
