Re: Sane observations

Interesting what you said about the scrum officiating JP14.

In the world cup final I couldn't understand why Dan was pinged 4 times against a player he had beaten, I believe, when he played for Saints

Sane observations

I am starting a new positive thread because of the aggro in the one about the Cardiff match. I was dreading watching it on Saturday night when I saw the team we were fielding and expecting a hammering. It seemed unwise to put out a very raw side and risk damaging the players' confidence. Much better...

Re: Live streaming

Thanks for that Ourla.

I have 2 Youview boxes, 1 from BT, the other from Curry's - badged BT - neither of these has HDMI input, so I can't see how to record.

Re: Live streaming

Thanks everyone especially ads.

I have investigated PlusNet and they have a good offer on phone + broadband + BTsport app for £25 pm. (We don't have fibre yet).

Can you 'catch up' matches with the BTsport app?

Live streaming

I'm fed up with BT putting their prices up dramatically once out of "introductory offer" period. Apparently I can get a reduction of £10 pm if I commit to another 18 months! I've seen Live streaming sites mentioned but some appear to be dodgy. Apparently bet365 is effectively free - although I would...

Rolling and crawling

At the weekend I noticed a lot of players rolling and crawling forwards after being tackled. Surely if someone is held when they are on the ground, they should release the ball and get to their feet before playing it again.
I don't think this is being enforced properly.

A new piece of silverware?

on the bright side.

Next season we could get the first ever chance to go for the one piece of silverware that has eluded us.

Re: Saracens up for sale

In the Times article it lists the "owners" of all of the Premiership Clubs. Apparently Tigers is owned by Peter Tom. When did that happen? I thought it was owned by the members>

Re: Tigers v Wasps Sunday March 25th

I suspect the change in scrum dominance wasn't just the subs. I think the ref realised the Wasps prop was boring in - perhaps after it was pointed out to him eventually.

Re: Triple Whammy

I don't know how old you are Strawclearer, but I'm 78 and the City were never called Fosse in my day - I'm 78. I did have a book "From Fosse to City". They weren't Foxes either. I echo all the other sentiments including the misfortune of having Sarries as my nearest club. Although I respect what the...

Re: Different rules

Yes, the refereeing was a big factor. We were pinged this week for offences Munster got away with last week.
OK we were poor again in adapting.

Re: Different rules

It's not easy to adapt during a match when you've trained for months and played 10 games to a different set of rules. I
