Re: Tigers vs Gloucester

I thought that the penalty was awarded with about 75 seconds to go and also thought that Hardwick had 90 seconds to take it, so I was gobsmacked when he took it with seconds left on the clock. I've learnt one thing on the time to take a kick tonight, so as for the rest , I'll reserve judgement until...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester

I think that Mark Bakewell deserves a bit of credit today as well. We won most of our lineouts and while I am only going on what I saw at the ground, every one of our mauls seemed to go forward and every one of Gloucester's was stopped dead. The polar opposite to the situation when he arrived and a ...

Re: Tigers vs Bath

There's the fact that teams are still playing for playoffs and RCC rugby too,we owe it to play our strongest 23! Why? Some teams will have played weakened teams in rounds 6, 9, 12 or whatever because they had one eye on the fixture next week. Week 22 does not pay double points so it is no different...

Re: All Coaches except Boris must go now..

Can someone explain to me why Anthony Allen deserves the sack? He is predominantly an academy coach and it is my understanding that they have done rather well over the last couple of years. While he may have helped out with the first team before additional coaches came in and has stepped up for the ...

Re: Dear Murphs

I agree with a lot that has been said, but I don't understand why people keep suggesting that GM will become DOR with a "world-class coach" coming in as Head Coach. Surely the more experienced person would become DOR? I can't see any "world-class coaches" coming in and working under GM, who is stil...

Re: All Coaches except Boris must go now..

Take no notice of BBC ,they are forever doing stuff like this! Although I wish he still was,wasn't he supposed to be getting the job unless "the wheels come off"? So he gets given the job on a 1/9 run hahaha! It's the worse board I can think of at present in any sport,it really is a shambles,laugha...

Re: Cohen in the Express.

A very clever and well respected ex-player said to me its a 5 year rebuilding process so we will have to get use to mid table and hope for Top 4 No chance we have had 5 years of failed turmoil and I for one cannot countenance another 5 years of " rebuilding". Its taken Saints just a season to resto...

Re: Pat Howard

I'm not sure that JP was offering the Board his unequivocal support, but as so often on this forum, everything has to be black and white.

Re: Freddie Burns

George Ford for Freddie Burns. Who got the better deal? Perhaps some have changed their mind. I'd take Owen Farrell over both every day of the week. I'd take Steenson over both to be honest, at least he can kick goals. Keep turning down what should be easy three pointers for a good kicker and conti...
