Re: George Ford

As someone whose had to manage an Achilles injury for the last 5 years I find this pretty worrying.

Tigers report suggested he’s been carrying this for the back end of the season so may partly explain the out of sorts performance against Toulon.

Re: Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year

Hmm if I had done this in September 2020 reckon I would have gone for Noel Reid (I had high hopes in a World Cup year he would turn into what we’re starting to see from Henry) and Tommy Reffell.

In hindsight like others would go for Harry wells and Reffell.

Re: Other Round 22 Fixtures

How do we know that Sale players have breached the rules? Saints could not field a front row so had to cancel. Tests may be false positives and still expect the game to be cancelled if the number of Sale positives remain. Yeah, but the main point.... Sale can't field a side on Sunday... so why are ...

Re: Tigers vs Quins - 04 Oct 20 15:00

Worcester released a statement late last night saying that nothing has been confirmed... this has Steve Diamond written all over it.

Wouldn’t be surprised if some Worcester players refused to play if Prem rugby try to force it through.

Seems crazy to even consider playing it.

Manu, torn Achilles, out for six months.

Thats the flip side I'm afraid. Despite everything, wish him the best with his recovery.
6 months for a torn Achilles is optimistic if anything unfortunately. Was looking forward to seeing more of him and Slade together in the centres for England.

Re: What a mess

What a lot of commentators and Sarries players comments fail to address is that, in their recent successful years, EVERYTHING they have done is tainted by their cheating. Stephen Jones said that they would have been just as good no matter how much they were paid, but he didn’t say that the only way...

Re: Toulon v Tigers - Challenge Cup Semi

Can’t believe people are still clinging to the officiating excuses! Time to wake up and smell the coffee for Gods sake! We weren’t good enough but by most observers the Toulon 2nd try and the pen v Genge on the 5m line and the Genge try were shocking decisions Agree, on balance Toulon deserved to w...

Final to be played at Ashton Gate!
Did not know that, how is that fair! Dozens of empty sports stadiums around the country at the mo and we might have to go and play the final as an away fixture!
Where did you hear that? EPC website still says tbc: https://www.epcrugby.com/finals/

Re: Toulon v Tigers - Challenge Cup Semi

The fact Kelly is in at 23 suggests he has a knock. Tigers don’t usually announce injuries when match day squads are named. Glad Kelly is picked though for that 23 shirt. I've not seen him play but as a 19 year old Irish U20's international he hopefully is ready for the step up, which in this case ...

Re: Zack Henry

also him being second choice 10 only will be particularly unappealing as we almost never substitute Ford off the field, that's why people keep mentioning playing 15 etc. Hopefully having a competitive reserve 10 can lead to Tigers being able to sub Ford off the field and rotate him when needed. Hop...

Re: Team vs Saints

Have a bad feeling about Sunday. Saints past form meanings nothing going into the derby. I do like the look of our XV, plus we have some power to come off the bench. There is also the fact this is the first time post restart saints are playing a ‘1st XV’ before they were the only side mixing it up....

Re: Wayne is in charge

Good to hear Wayne Barnes is in charge obviously not infallible but is a class above the others. Other good thing about Barnes is that not afraid to overrule overzealous TMOs.
