Re: Steve Booth

Very sad news. I recall him being jokingly indignant when Spreaders couldn't give one of his tries because he'd fallen on his backside at the line out and didn't see it. He also knocked our young un over in the tunnel but came back to dust the young fellow down and make sure he was OK. A genuine fel...

Ah! The Pontypool front row, how many accidental collisions did they have in a match, and how many times did a ref stand between the front rows when they were playing.
Ahhhh Faulkner, Windsor and Price........the passive engage.....ish. And an almighty shove!

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

Are you a fan because their ex Tigers or because you think there talented coaches (which there not) Are you a fan because they are ex Tigers? Possibly...I got to see Pat play in development games and coach on the pitch. I was impressed. Do I think they are talented coaches? In my opinion Pat is one...

Re: European cups draw

Pau? Must not be taken lightly. Our defence must also be able to hold out Tinky Winky, Dipsy and La-la.......but I'm not holding my breath? On a serious note didn't Darren Garforth dispose of a beer can on the pitch in that game? On a more serious note Darren nicked my pint and yammed it when he wa...

Re: New Kit

Quality of C.T was excellent. - They were good for that era of Rugby. The game has changed where tackling a player now requires tight fitting shirts. C.T and poor Fran Cotton was left behind.( Like most of us "Old sweats") Ah! but the CT Cotton traders shirts still live on and by magic they still s...

ugh cue the Old fart siren 🚨
An old fart from an old fart should raise enough of a stink. The fact.....sorry pedants....the impression that the officials are beyond reproach makes me feel quite ill.

Re: Geordie up before the beak...three week ban!

Do the officials get audited? I would hope anyone in charge of a professional event would be audited against a professional standard.......or are sir and his mates totally beyond reproach? You can preach on and on about "sir always being right" and I think that was fine in the amateur days. Respect...

Re: Geordie up before the beak...

For the record I have no issues with a coach taking issue with bad refereeing, it shows passion and commitment to the cause ...even when they are foul, abusive and disrespectful? I’m not sure we know that is the case here, and no there is no place for that, but you can get your message across whils...
