Re: RELEGATION SUSPENDED UNTIL 2024-25?

I read somewhere that BT were concerned about matches between bottom clubs would be less attractive without the threat of possible relegation. However, as others have pointed out, most seasons there has been one team who have been the obvious candidate from about round 4 and have rarely 'disappointe...

A comprehensive victory - more emphatic in every respect than that of Premiership Round 15.
I suspect a lot of it down to the difference in penalties and cards between the games.

Re: EUROPEAN RUGBY - Revised Format

While I agree with the sentiments expressed, its never going to happen. We are taking about human beings here. With different personalities, backgrounds, age, experience, fitness and lots of other stuff. We don't get consistency with refs in each league, let alone across leagues. Even if all refs a...

Re: EUROPEAN RUGBY - Revised Format

I never like these refs from the same league! Totally. It’s clear one team had a much better idea of what the referee would fail to penalise. I thought this had been acknowledged as an issue and addressed. I can only presume the new covid wave in France meant it was not advisable to bring a neutral...

With Montoya presumably out for the rest of the season and with his great form of late, is Clare pushing to be our starting hooker ahead Youngs?
Given the amount of rotation that SB is doing, I'm not sure that anyone is a 'starting' player in their position at the moment.

When was the last time we had 6 different try scorers in a match? :smt017

Still buzzing after that game
To have 6 different try scorers, you need to score at least 6 tries. Not something that Tigers have done very often for a couple of years IIRC :smt002

Pacific Island teams for Super Rugby

Article in The Times today (sorry, behind a pay wall - I get the paper edition) saying that a PI team for Fiji and one for Samoa/Tonga are pretty much sorted with financing coming mainly from World Rugby to start with.

Re: Re-Shaping Leicester Tigers

England disastrous 6N, lost to Scotland, Wales and Ireland! Will our England contingent coming back be any better than the lads who turned out today, will the England poor kicking game, from half backs, creep back into Tigers tactics, who are starting to run the ball again. We could do worse than r...

From 28-0 down and 1 man down after 35 minutes, to 'winning' the rest of the game 31-19. Away. At Exeter. :smt041 :smt041
And don't anyone say that Chiefs took their foot off the gas.

One more for the TBP! Come on lads keep it up
If we can't get a TBP whan on top against Oirish at home with 55+ minutes left, what chance when getting pasted away at Chiefs with only 30 mins left. I'm an optimist, but that's a stretch even for me :smt002

Re: Sat 20th March - Exeter away

Honestly don't think Cuthbert has been too biased. Needs to add a bit more emotion in his voice though Agreed. He's been quite objective, if mainly commenting on what Exeter do, whereas the 'proper' commentator couldn't be more biased if he tried. Everything Exeter do is fantastic. Admittedly, they...

Fortunate to be Welsh is the phrase you were looking for! Don’t lump us into this conversation.

And who's record would it be that you are hoping to equal 🤔 A country of 60 million, c...

Re: 6 NATIONS 2021

You can't blame any team for being able to up their performance against England. You may pity them if they can't manage to do it against anybody else. For those rugby following Brits who are unfortunate enough not to be English, this should be a major problem! If your highly paid side can only play...
