Re: Is Lavanini going to be a liability?

Guilty before he even played for us, typical of some posters on here. Give the guy a chance, he will be a massive improvement on last seasons efforts. Likewise way too much leniency because he's a Tiger which wouldn't be there otherwise,works both ways Not really. We don't tend to discuss players u...

Re: Is Lavanini going to be a liability?

I said in a post when we signed him that he would be a liability, but was shouted down for saying it. People said he had learned his lessons and much better now. Well this goes to show that he hasn't changed. Yes he may provide the grunt and toughness that our pack has been lacking, but if we are g...

Re: England v Argentina

or is it the FACT that no one ever DARE criticize a Tigers player?! Where on earth did you get that impression? Mine (and others) comments about your posts are about the frequency with which you single Ben Youngs out for a negative comment. Taken individually, most are fine. It's just the sheer num...

Re: Is Lavanini going to be a liability?

So opinion is divided and we don’t all think the same way.what a terrible world we live in. It’s more the black and white nature of posts at times, like there is no grey area & just a relentless stream of posts over reacting (IMO) to individual moments or players within a game. It’s the way things ...

Speed of ball gone up now Heinz on
I know we are all entitled to our own opinion, but practically all your many comments have been knocking Ben Youngs. There are 14 other England players out there and not all of them perfect.

Geordie does appear to be ideal for DOR role, overall view of entire playing side, think a more friendly Deano.
Wot? Deano unfriendly? Never :smt002

Re: French rugby 2019/20

Thanks for the updates Robespierre. I like to keep an eye on how various French teams are doing as a result of visiting them and getting such warm welcomes from many of their fans.

Re: Youngs injured in pub brawl

I suggest people actually read the article before commenting, the version I read stated that a Tiger's player (Bateman) was punched and that no Tigers player retaliated, it also said that glasses were thrown but not that it was our boys doing the throwing. I remember that when Deano took over a dis...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

There is an excellent summary by Owen Slot in today’s Times of the possible outcomes and their likely consequences. Sorry I can’t copy it, but its worth a read. Managed to copy it :smt001 If Saracens escape punishment, it will kill the salary cap The Times Wales dropped from first to fourth in the ...

Re: New Kit

Does it help to say that it’s green, red and white with an orange patch on the sleeve and big red patch on the top of the back? :smt003 It does :smt023 Purely personal preference but I think that the big red patch clashes with the green and is too big. But as they are sponsors, can't complain too m...

Re: England v Ireland

Ben Youngs? Having only seen the highlights I can't really comment, but in the paper today

"One of his best, and not even the paucity of the oposition could devalue it 8/10"

And this from one of his usual critics. Ah well, the joys of subjective comments.

Re: Wales 1st in the World?

And the feeling I got from what I heard the ref say was that it was a deliberate attempt to block the ball disguised as a tackle. I believe the TMO had a lot to do with it Thank you for that which just goes to show what a phrase it was as if Watson had time to think right I’m going to,pretend to ta...

Re: Wales 1st in the World?

Just seen a very different angle on this via the Rising Sons documentary they are showing on YouTube, worth a watch if you haven’t caught it. Firstly there is no way it was a penalty let alone a yellow, Watson clearly goes for a man and ball tackle wrapping the arms and in that motion hitting the b...

Re: New Kit

With a smaller market it'd surely make sense to alternate the introduction of new kits once every couple of years. Hmm, now where have I seen this before? With Cotton Traders many moons ago? I think that they are killing the goose that lays the "golden" egg. With one new shirt per season, many peop...
