Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

Burns at 30 potentially has 4/5 more seasons as an experienced and effective premiership 10/15, who will have no international call ups, and won’t contribute to a match count of overseas players. He left because Bath wanted him more than we did, not because we didn’t want him. While Freddie might b...

Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

Yes Ford,Burns,Henry makes way more sense than Ford,Burns,Bonilla Agreed but apparently Henry is off at the end of the season and a new contract is being discussed with Bonilla, so most likely it will be Ford, Burns and Bonilla, if Burns were to re-join. Madness if that were the case. Like I said F...

Availability for BT Sport Subscribers not diminished by the move , I believe.
Bt sport extra channels are not recordable which means I may not get to see the start of the game as have to travel home from work and make dinner
Two words- Take away! :smt002

Perhaps Ford is leaving................otherwise it would be an odd signing & not a great use of the Salary Cap.
Burns would be signed as backup to Ford. We also have Bonilla. Henry is apparently leaving at the end of the season.

Zack Henry will be leaving apparently so Burns would come in as understudy alongside Bonilla to Ford

Re: Saints v Tigers - 09th January 2021

I'm a bit sceptical of the "derby game" factor (isn't it really just something hyped up by broadcasters to promote their product?) and even more so when there are no crowds and almost none of the players involved are from the area. The game will be won on exactly the same things as any other Premie...

Re: SARRIES FUTURE

I was thinking this morning that Sarries have been no loss to the Premiership whatsoever. In fact, I sort of forgot about them!

Need to take into account the plastic pitch & any dodgy lower limbs, not sure I would risk Brink, Moroni or Taute.
It’s absolutely ridiculous that this is a consideration. I despise these pitches! Every single team should play on grass.

Re: George Ford and tactics

If you watch the Saints Bristol game you can see that open, attacking rugby IS possible. Stacks of ball in hand, both sides running it and no silly kicking. Not really working for Saints though is it. Would you prefer to see a game like that and be 12th in the table or a kick fest and not be 12th?

Re: Tigers vs Brive

Was like watching a Saracens defensive training session. We always looked in control without getting out of 2nd gear. It was great with no Comms as you could hear the excitement the team had in defence. some of the hits were great - Joe heyes put some big shots in. Steward is 100% the future, he is...

He confirmed it himself that’s it’s a 7 month contract then 3 year contract to Edinburgh.


So would be very hard to do.
However, I still expect there to be many people moaning how the club have let another one go etc etc etc when his contract expires. :smt015

Did we send a different team down to LI? This looks like the team against Glos but nothing like last week :smt017
No, just learning from what we did wrong maybe.
