In the UK, 1,000 people a year die from falling down the stairs. Anyone worried about walking down the stairs this morning? Nope, didn't think so.
Wrong. Loads of people have that worry. But the ones who DO worry about falling down stairs move into a bungalow if they can.

Long term he looks like 13 will be his position, he can pick a line & has gas, he may well work well with Nadolo by being there to pick up the offload or exploit the gaps. Is he the finished article, no, is he a better than average prospect yes. His next 12 months will give everyone an idea of if h...

Re: ANOTHER WAVE OF COVID 19?

Where is the old travel expert "Noddy?" who was so regular on this site months ago when he is needed?? Once a Try Line clubber. Well done Guernsey for being Covid 19 free. (back on track! ) :smt023 Noddy hasn't posted for just over two years and he used to put out about 10 posts a week. I fear it d...

Re: Adam Thompstone

I remember when Adam was announced as coming to us, there were a fair few comments on this forum along similar lines to Gary Lineker's reaction to Claudio Ranieri. I felt that he had been a pain in the neck whenever he played against us and various times when I had seen him on the box. Not quite sta...

Re: Good job Burns has left Bath...

Quite telling that no other premiership teams wanted to sign him. Are you sure they didn't? Maybe they did and he didn't rate the offer or they didn't fancy his terms. Maybe he just felt disillusioned in England and fancied chancing his arm in Japan, possibly the lure of experiencing a new culture ...

Re: Peter Tom YouTube

"was a good general open confirmation of what most genuine loyal supporters believe of him and the club" Nice little dig at those genuine ,loyal supporters who only question things because of their love of the club?! No. By saying "most genuine...", he acknowledges that there are genuine, loyal sup...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

So it’s all about the money? I think I’d want to keep testing myself at the highest level if it was me. Maybe its more down to game time on offer and placing himself in London for future career opportunities. Good luck to him and fair play for having a plan post rugby. My earlier point kind of sugg...

GT will be massive for Ealing. I hope he can stay fit. Best of luck Guy. Has this been confirmed? From 11 other Premiership teams, he isn’t going to any of them. That’s should tell those thinking us releasing him is a bad idea something. That Ealing are happy to splash the cash to get a very commit...

Re: Stuart Barnes - Cut The Garbage

It's an excellent article and proposal. I just wish the newspapers would refrain from using any photographs of Saracens celebrating their Premiership wins. And not just newspapers. I watched the Tigers games shown by BT Sport the previous two weekends. The start and end of the ad breaks were showin...

Re: Stuart Barnes - Cut The :censored:

10 teams yes. No Play-offs no. Play-offs are designed for TV, and TV is were the money comes from. What 10 teams though and how would they be judge? On sustainability or performance? Personally I feel that Worcester and Wasps would be my first 2 picks. I don't think Worcester has the growth potenti...

The carpark is being used by NHS staff free of charge, and I thought it was generally known that construction sites were not operating.
Try telling that to the workers building new stuff at the school just by me, going at it jackhammer and tongs for the last 3 weeks.

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Old Hob makes 1 good point that yes maybe rugby players are overpaid but they operate in the entertainment industry and as such their salaries can be, for those at the top level, inflated, that is the market norm. IMHO it is unnecessary to start bring the Britannia hotels story to this forum, unles...

Still don’t get how all these players at sarries will come back after a year and all will be fine with the cap...we will see! The ones going out on loan are probably nothing to do with the salary cap. They could probably stay at Sarries and the players who are permanently leaving should get them be...

Typical Spencer has his best game in a Tigers shirt when he’s off to Bath. :smt010
Just like Freddie Burns then. Never played better than after it was announced he was leaving.
Disagree totally.
