Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

That is true, he also gives away a lot of penalties. So did a certain Martin Johnson IIRC. With all due respect to Harry that's about the only comparison you could make between the two of them. With all due respect, using "gives away a lot of penalties" without any context like the role he plays (h...

I'd put Wells first on the team sheet, captain material for me, leads by example and always gives 100%.

If I was a Quins supporter, I would be very angry if the Club chose Care and Marler over Gustard.
Agreed but why have you chosen just those two? I've not seen anything to single out those two only. What if it was also Brown and Smith, say? At what point do you reach the tipping point?

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

This is the season where EJ needs to blood some new youngsters. Covid has disrupted things but the WC cycle hasn't changed. It ought to be, but with only 5 extra players in the squad outside a match day 23, there's not a lot of room for experimentation. For example, where previously EJ might have s...

Re: French rugby 2020/2021

Hi, Richie. No, I haven’t seen it. Might find a clip somewhere. I’ll check it out. . Seen it! The Fijian winger seemed rather pleased with the victory in a close match and celebrated by hoisting the ref, who didn’t appreciate it at all!!

I know a Quins STH that very much as his ear to the ground. Tells me it was a bolt of the blue and didn't see it coming.
Bolt from the blue? There's been rumours for about a week he's going to be the new Wales defence coach.
Also rumours that Gethin Jenkins is going to get the job.

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

Given Montoya signing is all over the news and even on BBC who tend to be slow movers on announcing these things, strange that nothing from Tigers yet. Anyone have ideas why? Is this maybe not fully confirmed yet? Some things never change. And it could be an extension of SB's "keep everyone in the ...

Re: Time wasting

Not fully thought through, but couldn't the TMO do the timing? Just tells the ref if time is up.

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Dai Young has always come across as a good coach just not a great one. His team's have always seems to just miss that clinical edge to mix it with the big boys. His team's were always well drilled though. Worth remembering that when he took the hot seat at Wasps they were in a right mess. There's b...

Re: Is this season a Farce with the cancellations

Yes? And, IMO, so was last season, given that clubs literally could not field their proper teams for each game for the 2nd half of it so it ended up an utter lottery - and that's not even getting to the players that ended up moving clubs part way through the season! For me given it was determined w...

He reached the semi finals of the Champions Cup with Nicky Robinson at fly half. What more did you expect?! I see that you have a similar view of Mr Robinson to me :smt003 :smt002 But if you look at the players in that semi https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardiff_Blues_vs_Leicester_Tigers_(2008–09_...

Re: Is this season a Farce with the cancellations

Imagine you are a player & get a career ending injury in the current season, it would seem rather pointless. What's the alternative? Stop rugby, players all made redundant or on furlough on £30k. Players normally on £100k plus all default on mortgages and have serious financial hardship, impacting ...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Quite harsh on him. Wasps finished 9th the season before he arrived. In 2016,17,18 they finished 3rd, 1st and 3rd (plus one semi and 2 quarters in the Champions Cup). Given the move to Coventry, the financial issues and the constant rotation of star names, I'd say he did a good job. Ok, the last 18...
