Re: Captaincy

Dan Cole tomorrow! As with all front rowers, he gets plenty of practise talking to the ref at scrum time: "Who? Me, Sir? Never" "Their loose head was angling in, Sir" "The pitch just slipped out along with my feet, that's why I landed on my belly Sir" :smt003 I'm not convinced Dan says that many wo...

Re: Captaincy

I'm not sure anybody on here can judge if TY should be skipper. It's down to the respect that he commands of the players and nothing else. I do agree he needs to work on his management of the ref though! I remember when everyone used to complain about Borthwick as a captain, but he captained every ...

Re: Captaincy

Taufua was skipper for Tasman I believe. OTY just isn't a captain, picking him over Slater was a large piece of the jigsaw of daft decisions over recent years. Top bloke & an inspiration Youngs, but not a skipper. I'm not sure anybody on here can judge if TY should be skipper. It's down to the resp...

Re: Bath v Sarries

Sarries wont throw this away. 4 points closer to us... I'm led to believe that it's not just down to us and Sarries and that other relegation candidates are available. I was somewhat surprised to find out that when "everybody on here is saying" that we were cast adrift at the bottom of the table wi...

Re: Tigers v Pau Saturday Nov 16th

Who says it’s a binary choice between accepting mediocrity and supporting the team when they need it the most? It’s your attitude JGT that is most worrying. With that attitude 11 of the 12 sides don’t deserve support because they aren’t winners. It’s that attitude that got us to Saracen’s’ salary c...

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...

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...

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.
