Re: Kiwi hypocrites strike again!

Ritualistic or not, I still think it’s disrespectful. It’s all ridiculous. It’s been nothing more than an advert for NZ’s sponsors for a decade or more; oddly tied in with fines for teams “disrespecting” the spectacle(/advert/joke). It’s been turned into nothing more than an over choreographed bori...

Re: Challeng Cup 19/20

God I shed a tear when I look at those group of teams! As in "how are the mighty fallen?", or the perceived 'lower class' of some compared to Tigers' former standing (I've not phrased that well). Well, it'll make a change from seemingly playing Ulster, Munster, Leinster, Racing & Ospreys every seas...

Re: Julian White?

You’ve got 2 farmers there maybe they were discussing the price of cows. If it was to do with the club I would imagine Dustys presence indicates maybe a scouting role. Dusty was a sheep man I believe 😇. Fair point though, what Dusty knows about what makes a forward tick can be written on the head o...

Re: Julian White?

I have just seen a photo of Simon Cohen, Dusty Hare, Boris Stankovich and Julian White together visiting a restaurant. 3 members of the club and White. I wonder if they are talking about a role for Julian? Doesn't make much sense to me, which makes it almost certain that he'll be appointed. What is...

No, just a fan
I love Batman too, but every position on the pitch? Your tongue must be firmly in your cheek!
Ok, maybe not 9.

I'm not Bateman either.

I am Bateman!

Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

We massively missed Veainu this year through injury, I genuinely believe he is world class at FB. We have lacked clarity in the game plan (assuming there was one) and the 2nd row and back row have been light due to injury and lack of depth. I'm very excited about some of the signings, particularly ...

Re: Quins vs Tigers

No - I agree. That's my point. We have been so utterly dire, if Aunty Dot who pours the tea at half time and her best friend Polly are available to do some coaching they are bound to be better. My only concern is what will happen in pre-season. I can see the current panel giving out bacon butties f...

Re: Quins vs Tigers

Strange, for all my criticism of the BOD, Cohen, Glynn, the quality of coaching, and the attitude of a handful or more of the players, I'm quite optimistic (if we can avoid the drop) about next year. The solutions to the problems on the pitch are straightforward enough. They need a competent coachi...

Re: Is this the most complicated forum ever?!

Six months in and no clearer. I find it impossible to follow a thread and discern who said what and when. The original post gets repeated so often that it's hard to remember where the neck you started. I'm sure you guys work hard at this, for probably no reward, so I feel mean saying it but, rather ...

My comment wasn't 'garbage' - I'm too old to need to massage my ego on a forum by making exaggerated claims about imaginary friends - but I do accept that people do exaggerate, and on the basis that I'm not able / prepared to identify my friend you might reasonably assume I'm talking garbage.

Re: All Coaches except Boris must go now..

I don't know who is available either and as you don't, I don't think you should be demanding change. You're just presuming there's better people available. No it's not. Competent businesses change the composition of their BOD's regularly. It is one of the things that makes them competent. This BOD ...

Re: Anyone else uneasy?

Just part of the Tigersfamily spin and balderdash. If it makes a fellow supporter feel good then I have no problem with that, but and it's a big but, it does not and cannot in any way make that person a better supporter than any of us. Seems a strange move to make to please 1 supporter but a move w...

Or course we are,second most supported club in Europe below Bordeaux I believe. It was more a rhetorical one,but we certainly don't act like one,it's amateur hour at times!
ASM? Peut etre!
