Re: Team for Exeter

Yeah, probably being paranoid. Been looking forward to seeing him in action for a while now and hoping to see what he can do pretty soon.

Re: Team for Exeter

Something is bothering me about the post match interview with Borthwick in relation to Nadolo. When asked why he wasn't picked his answer about not being ready sounded a bit unconvincing and his body language suggested there was something else going on. I have no idea what if anything that might be ...

As Pirelli would say, power is nothing without control. If we can establish a bit of a grip on games, the power we have will be enough.
I suspect that this will effectively be the 'clarity' given by the new Head Coach - control the game, particularly up front.

So Edgerton is saying that Gigena is staying in Argentina to play for the Pumas in the Rugby Championship?
Looks that way, which means when he eventually returns he would have been absent from the club for some 10mths.
Hopefully it will help him to get match fit if nothing else.

Re: Ringfencing almost upon us ?

As far as I am concerned your either a supporter or not and it’s irrelevant whether there’s ring-fencing or not. Although I was originally against it there are advantages of being able to use your young players when there is less pressure and let’s face it which teams in the championship have the i...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Seems to me that Abendanons motives were to do with money and lifestyle for him and his family. No problem with that, but probably not got the hunger and desire to work hard and improve Tigers have been talking about so much recently. Club first.

Re: Exeter Chiefs

My last comment on this topic as I don't believe it is my role to inform, educate or correct. All I know is that if there is a group of people who, as has been suggested find such imagery offensive, then anyone with a degree of compassion would try to do something to change that. There appears to be...

Re: Exeter Chiefs

Credit for these words to Annie Banaynay who has done a whole body of work on this: “Caricatures used by sports teams with “Indian” mascots contribute to the “savage” image of Native peoples and the myth that Native peoples are an ethnic group ‘frozen in history’.” I think Exeter need to take a real...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

The 'Rugby Paper' (26/72020) suggest more than a passing interest from The Dragons toward Greg Bateman (Alex Bywater). Wouldn't surprise me. The WRU have made a concerted effort to get Welsh qualified players into the Regions squads. Bateman qualifies and is at an age where he should have three or ...

Re: Saracens Vs Stormers

On the BBC Sport pages too. Copied this extract over from Stormers coach and found the language interesting, although I doubt it was said with any hidden meaning: Stormers coach John Dobson added: "Saracens are one of the top club teams in the world and renowned for their innovation and forward-thin...

For the benefit of members I have used RB’s new senior squad intake and listed as to when they have arrived or due to arrived as this is more confusing than normal due to Covid. Zack Henry (Arrived) Shalva Mamukashvili (Still seeking visa as far as I’m aware) Nemani Nadolo (Arrived) Cyle Brink (Arr...

Re: Championship clubs to break away?

Would that mean no way back in to Prem then - if no relegation or promotion? How would Sarries feel about that?

Can I just apologise to anyone I may have offended for calling him Lady Gaga. I am aware his name is Nephi Leatigaga, I just like nick names.
It is getting more difficult isn't it? Half expecting complaints when a few people used the word 'thug' in reference to Weise.
