Re: Favourite matches of all time

I remember that whole day so vividly - getting to teagues bar far too early, therefore having for too many Guinness. Then at the game, suffering a lot of football esque treatment from some awful (minority) Glaws fans, then winning with that drop goal and the subsequent winding down of the clock, th...

Re: Favourite matches of all time

Can I throw a couple more in there - consecutive games actually Final game of the 2007/8 season v Quins at home. Memorable for Quins scoring the first ever 4 try BP against Tigers since they came into effect very close to the end of the match, which would have put us out of the play offs had the sco...

Re: Sarries vs Leicester

I suspect there will be some rotation for this one - last game without the 6 nations players and next one is Sandy park when the cavalry return.
Taufua tweaked a hammy so suspect he will not be risked - think the front rows might swap places from last week too

Re: Murphy's "vision".

One thing to add to this - the players really rate GM as a coach......... They would not do this if they did not have faith that he and they could turn things around - this was never going to be a quick fix, but you should be clear that whatever the fan "experts" think (including me), the players, t...

Re: Tigers vs Worcester

Taute definitely out. Hearing White also, Kalamafoni still showing symptoms and Taufau will not play every game having played so many already this season. I think its also worth bearing in mind that the teams are selected on Tuesdays usually - So its fairly likely that all the doubts are actually co...

Re: Sale vs Leicester - 21st February 2020

Good opportunity for some young uns to be blooded............
Never that keen on 6/2 split as leaves us very vulnerable should injuries start early in the 3/4's

Looking forward to it............

Re: Dai on his way! - now departed.

in my view, a very good guy and well liked and respected by all fans........ Been a true Wasps legend in the old school wasps way - even to the point of buying bandages and strapping when the club were on their a*se financially (some would rightly say they still are) He will go elsewhere and do very...

Re: Tigers during the 6N

I suspect we will get Ellis back for the Wasps game - Marler and Mako likely to be the front 2 LH's
That would be handy for us

Re: Saracens are relegated!

the key bit for me has been mentioned in several posts This is what was found in the review rather than what was admitted. if it was only about these known (well known now) transgressions then they should have been comfortable opening the books this season - instead they took relegation. Which only ...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

the only way the majority of the big names will stay is if they go out on a season long loan - Saracens need to cut costs and the championship has a salary cap too. I cant imagine they wont be looked at quite severely next season too..... As McCall was quoted - this squad will be broken up and its t...

Re: Bath vs. Tigers - Sat 25 Jan 15:00

this weekends camp is part of the agreement between PRL and England - so no players available from EJ's squad Also - don't under estimate the task ahead on Saturday - their pack and their defence is a real step up from last season - impressed with Abano particularly - and it will be a sticky old dec...

Re: Borthwick

Borthwick expected to join the club post summer tour and well in time for pre season - also he will be heavily involved in those plans from now on - and in fact has been part of them for a little while now. All part of an agreement forged by the unpopular Simon Cohen. SB will still have England duti...

Re: What Now For Our Season?

its been proven that currently, no English side can compete in Europe without cheating the cap. Exeter have a chance to progress this year, but I suspect few imagine they can win (hope I am wrong) The one thing I would say is we should target the top tier competition because that's what the players ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Daily Mail is usually pretty accurate on rugby reporting. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/rugbyunion/article-7896673/Saracens-brink-automatic-relegation-Premiership.html Looks like they are between a rock and a hard place. Probably going to accept a year in the Championship (where there is no sal...
