Re: Tigers v Calvisano

Of course I’ll be there. Get down and support your club. Some of my mates who support City still carried on getting behind the team home and away( as many thousands of City fans did) through two awful relegations. Look at City now! The team needs the support and, listen to Genge, he told it as it is...

Re: SIMON COHEN AND TOM SCOTT

Well done. Spot on. No wonder we are in decline on and off the field. We used to have people in important positions who were a Tigers to the core. I will always support my club and now reckon I/Tigers’ fans should start doing the Euro Lottery to be able to buy the club. There has to be some rich fol...

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

Well I still believe in this squad. There is a lot of talent in it but they have to be allowed to play “heads up” rugby. Eg Our kicking game isn’t good enough so try running back with the ball and offload before being smashed. The team that beat Gloucester proved they can defend and play a smart gam...

Re: Tigers v Calvisano

I just think Tigers need to get players into form; at the Pau game myself and a few other fans thought we looked rusty and with the team we had out should have scored more tries. Certainly don’t mind mixing the team up but only if we put combinations together that will play v Exeter. Again I emphasi...

Re: Tigers v Calvisano

Sorry. The first team ( whatever that is) has to play the next two games to get into form.
Tigers can rest players later when we’ve won the next 5 games.

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

I tried to get a ticket today and was glad I was unsuccessful. Personally I think the problem is the whole club is unhappy at how it’s being run. If I was Murphy I’d take the whole squad away for a day of frivolity then return determined to play attacking rugby that the players buy into to. The only...

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

Poor TV, he is getting one injury after another and for me personally, he is a huge loss. Against Gloucester, though not back to his best you could see the fear in Gloucesters ranks when he got the ball. His kicking and chasing was on a higher level than anything seen for ages at Tigers. I was, ther...

Re: European Challenge Cup - Cardiff vs Tigers

It doesn’t matter that the game was awful: we won. I’ll take 3 ugly wins v Saints, Exeter and Quins. Saints rested quite a few players too and their game yesterday shows how far they’ve gone. Let’s hope, unlike like seasons home game v Saints the lads are up for it. Before both the Saints and Exeter...

Re: European Challenge Cup - Cardiff vs Tigers

Dodgy track. Look at our injuries from playing on The Welford Road surface. Artificial pitches are here to stay. Our backs should relish the Cardiff pitch as it suits fast back play. Look at the way artificial pitches are made and tested and you will find out how good they are. The surface burns you...

Re: Tigers v Pau Saturday Nov 16th

Just got back from the game. Tigers did what they had to do. Well done. I would play the England players next week for 55 - 60 minutes to try to get back to back wins and improve on what wasn’t so good this week. Go fully loaded and have a good crack at Saints. If we do well, bonus point minimum the...

Re: Borthwick

Agreed. Everything to gain and he knows nearly half of our “First Fifteen” having been with England. He will know plenty about TV, Kalamafoni and Lavanini too from them being World Cup opponents. Geordan can then just get on with PR stuff. If Borthwick is coming I totally agree: he needs to be here ...

Re: Tigers v Pau Saturday Nov 16th

Sorry but Pau is massive. Win, win,win. All games matter. If anyone thinks they don’t then Tigers will never turn things round. No use turning up at Saints on a losing run.

Re: London Irish vs Tigers

Murphy said after the game:” Some players will need resting because of fatigue.” This is the problem: Murphy doesn’t ever give us any ideas how he will fix things. I don’t like getting onto Murphy as I loved him as a player but he just hasn’t shown any progress since he became a coach. No more senti...

Re: London Irish vs Tigers

The trouble is the basic skills are dire and how do you put it right having had a long pre-season. Ex players, us fans and commentators can see what’s wrong but the coaches cannot see or if they can, cannot rectify, it we are in serious trouble. That pack today was pretty good. The board has let the...
