Re: Positives going forward

So last season we stayed up due to our own results and no help scoring 47 tries while conceding 81 with 5 TBP and 8 LBP with a PD of -154 while this season Sarries kept us up and we scored 35 tries while conceding 79 with 1 TBP and 2 LBP with a PD of -235 yet apparently we’ve improved? 🙈 If you wan...

Re: Positives going forward

Lose by 8 or lose by 28 makes no material difference to the league points unless you score 4 tries, which we haven't done in a long time now. But going from losing by 28 to losing by 8 would seem to indicate an improvement. And if the improvement continues, and we lose by 7 or less, that would make...

I was only joking when I mentioned Castro earlier, but: https://www.ruck.co.uk/martin-castrogiovanni-could-be-on-his-way-back-to-leicester-tigers/ I know its The Ruck, but they are quoting The Rugby Paper, which I don't get, so...

The rugby paper wasn't linking Tigers to Castro.

Basically.
Tigers are looking for a scrum coach and could do no worst than looking close to home in Castrogiovanni.

That was pretty much it.
Ah, a bit more 2+2 equals whatever you want (with acknowledgements to kk20gb30 :smt023).

Re: Positives going forward

On paper we have a fantastic set of players and a top notch coaching set up, we should be better than we are and, hopefully next season, we will be, but that is based on nothing substantial because there is zero evidence that things are actually, materially getting better right now. My bold. If you...

Re: Bye Bye Boris

Apparently Castro being lined up as a replacement!!!

Re: Positives going forward

I don't believe in this guff about meaningless games being used to introduce the new players to each other and for the head coach to assess their abilities etc. They're not an amateur club's third XV who just pitch up on match day - what are they doing (or not doing) in training between games?! Man...

Re: Coaching Staff vs International Players

I agree with the OP,I like to imagine where we would be with this set of players under other DOR/HC,11th? Absolutely not! Hence it’s a coaching staff problem So you want a new head coach then, after 3 or 4 months? No ,I just want my HC to be allowed free reign then we can decide if he’s up for it n...

Re: Positives going forward

I am trying to stay positive -but why on earth are we having to strip everything back to the basics? These are international players we are talking about, not beginners. Because rugby is very much a TEAM game and a lot of the basics are the interactions between players - line-out, scrum, ruck, maul...

Re: Coaching Staff vs International Players

All I can say is that the OP has not been reading the same comments on this forum that I have. From July 1st we have had a huge turnover in players with new arrivals coming in dribs and drabs, another new head coach (is that the 5th in 4 years?) plus other senior coaches. We've played 9 largely mean...

Re: Positives going forward

This will be our last season in the Premiership if the kicking the ball away doesn’t stop. Please Tigers, save yourselves, be fearless and keep hold of the ball. Imagine that your life and your colleagues lives depend on it, because the life of this club does. I get a bit fed up with this singling ...
