Re: Tigers vs Bath

Well done Tigers for opening the gates after the team circuit and letting the fans and teams meet for photos and autographs and a good few great discussions. However Craig Maxwell-Keys was not on the pitch for the post match event but he was caught in the Crumbie tunnel and was asked about the 6 TM...

No Remy tonight. And I was so looking forward to winding up the Colonel!

Bye Bye everybody. See you next year. Assuming I can be bothered.

Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

:smt025 In an article on the website concerning Tom Youngs' desire to give Smithy a good send off our season was described as a rollercoaster ride. Funny? I thought rollercoasters sometimes went up?

Re: Smithy

Club first. 23 with his attitude would be great. Forwards with the Julian White spirit, backs with Smithy's. Title contenders! 8 forwards with Julian White's DNA? <{Shudder}> You could add a soupçon of Johnno, a pinch of mad dog, a sprinkle of Deano, an ounce of Back and a portion of classic ABC. I...

To be honest it seemed like his head was back in Australia or much of the season.

Shame we didn't get the player we hoped he would be.
Mol, I'm with you here. There's the old fashioned bloke in me who says "You signed for a season, you play for a season."

It just didn't work out!

There's no reason with the right coaching why we can't be like that...
We can only hope. It pains me to admit who we should emulate. Enough of hiring ex-Tigers, let’s have some ex-Sarries...

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: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

I agree with comments above on the so called stellar back line. The forwards decide who wins the game and the backs by how many. The squad was out of balance and shallow. IMHO we let too many go who were "just" not internationals. Leaving a choice between novice and nothing when the internationals a...

Re: Plans for next season

When available, review Pat Howards report. Implement a change and get a game ethic that every one from XV1 down to the boot boys(sorry persons) buy into and understand their role. We have top players who are under utilised. You don't get a pedigree dog for someone else to bark. Get Welford Road a f...

After the way this season has gone I'm considering getting out of rugby and into something more relaxing. Lawn bowls maybe.

Too violent for my liking.
A nice civilised game of winter croquet pethaps? It's a beggar in the snow.
