Re: Tigers v Saints

The other major elephant in the room is the captain. Not only his captaincy or lack of it but his total inability to hit a barn door. He is a hard working industrious player in the loose and strong enough scrummager but that’s not enough. We cannot carry on squandering field position with his inabil...

Re: Tigers v Saints

The one bloke who made a difference when he came in was white. Ruck clearance, speed and accuracy of pass gave Ford more time to make the plays and gave the attack continuity. For me up until that point Jordan Olefella was just about our best player. This tells me that the youth policy is the only w...

A. England?

B. Tigers?

Re: The Six Nations 2019

I don’t think the Scottish scrum was there to be munched. Nel is as good a tight head as anyone and when they brought Reid on to strengthen the scrum it was Sncler who got munched and Jones had to send Cole on to rescue the situation

Re: Ben Youngs

I think Ben Youngs is a very talented player who quite regularly plays poorly for Tigers and yet generally plays well for England. I can never make up my mind if that is coaching, the players mind set, tactics or the players around him. I find it very frustrating whatever it is. Anyway, well done to...

Re: ARE THERE ANY LAWS IN THE GAME THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE?

Im with Old Hob on this one Bring back proper rucking - as soon as the tackle is made everyone must release the ball immediately and can only play with the feet thereafter until it emerges at the back of the ruck and received by the scrum half (or acting scrum half). Yes, I agree no stamping or kick...

Re: Best Rugby Player Of All Tine

Hmm quite interesting to read my own posts from 13 years ago and I see it was my post on Bill McLaren that prompted someone to re post this . Dear old Bill I do still miss him. Current commentators would do well to listen and learn. None of them have his enthusiasm for the game I love. They are all ...

Re: Manu to Racing 92? No! - Re-signed for Tigers!!!

Good one

We just need him to stay fit and play as well for us as he has England.

Hopefully it will encourage others to stay ie Genge

Re: New Coach?

I agree it is impossible to get a team to perform consistently when vast parts of the squad is unavailable. I am not sure if Murphy is the right man in long term for the job. However one thing that is certain, the failure of this club in recent years is due to the failure to do that which was always...

Re: Sione banned for 5 weeks in reality

I think it was a red under current laws but in the highlights programme there was another example(can’t remember which game) which was much worse as it was a shoulder in a ruck into the back of a guys neck. Zero action on that one which makes the Lwas a bit of a joke

Re: Sarries being investigated

I think we probably do keep to the cap by and large and also I do not think we have the money in comparison to these clubs with wealthy owners. This fiddling of the cap and the unwillingness or inability of the governing body to do anything about it is very reminiscent of the final dying throws of s...

Re: Kerr gets Scotland call

Great news for Jake, well deserved. He has rapidly become our most reliable hooker. He can only get better. I don’t think Scotland will need him in the near future once their current injury crisis is over. That should give him a little time to continue to develop nicely with us. Hopefully we are sen...

Re: Tigers v Racing

I haven't read all the thread and what I have read I agree with in terms of the teams poor attacking threat especially from 10. a couple of points though. I think the man we really miss is Denton. He was bought as the big ball carrier. with him and Genge in tandem that would allow the likes of Spenc...
