Tannoy

Sitting in the 'large stand' (can never remember the name it's given each season!) it seemed that the volume of the PA system was way too loud, resulting in it being difficult to understand what was being said. And, after the game, the music was definitely too loud. Last season it was great so why m...

Re: The new App

Well the App failed to function at the game last night - Matchday Live just wasn't! By the end of the game (and this was with a very good 4G signal) the app was still attempting to update the score and commentary, but the score remained resolutely at 0 - 0 with no commentary.

Re: Team Vs Treviso

Treviso showed Tigers how to handle the ball - lovely quick and generally accurate passing, especially given the conditions. I was disappointed to see Tigers sticking to the 'tried, tested and found wanting' take the ball in, create a ruck, scrum half has a look around and then makes the pass. If th...

Re: Tigers fixtures - Smartphone sync

Well, the LV Cup games have now been transferred to my Outlook calendar and the Tigers vs Glos game would appear to be being played from Sat 4th November 2017 at 3pm until Sat 28th April 2018 at 5pm - one hell of a game, especially as they will also be playing another game against Bath (at the Rec) ...

Re: New Kit

Anyone know what material the Classic Jerseys are made from, especially for those of us who don't want a shiny, slippery player type?

It's a knockout!

Couldn't believe this - a lifetime ban is surely the minimum sanction:

Re: 3G & 4G Pitches - Risk Of Injury?

There's a photo of Cashton on the Beep site http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/39474178 which shows him with what look like grazes or burns on one knee - caused by the Allianz pitch?

I'm sure I'm being dense, but why is the match at Twickers?

Re: 3G & 4G Pitches - Risk Of Injury?

Oh sorry I got the wrong end of the stick - fully synthetic like Saracens I don't think should be used. Was this on a hybrid like Twickenham then? In which case that's a bit more alarming as as far as I was aware that shouldn't have been able to happen. No, I don't think so. Reading the article sug...

Re: Quality of full match videos

Thanks Smudge. Strangely, I've just been able to quickly check the quality at work (where the internet provider is also Virgin, but the computer is different) and the quality is fine.

I'll try and check with another computer at home and see if my home computer (an iMac) is the issue.

Quality of full match videos

I'm interested to know whether anyone/everyone else sees the same very poor quality videos when watching full match replays on the Premiership Rugby website? Of course, I may have to change a setting somewhere (although I can't see where). And the quality should not be down to either internet speed ...

Re: Aaron Morris banned for 3 weeks & it was a Red Card offe

For me it was the fact that Morris stopped looking at the ball, looked at Thommo jumping, didn't jump himself, continued to move into Thommo who is now in the air, then continue to hold Thommos leg whilst he is in the air. Although I don't think there was any malice, Morris was scared to pull out a...

Re: Aaron Morris banned for 3 weeks & it was a Red Card offe

We've had this before and the officials' typical response is the outcome of the challenge, ie what happened to the 'victim', rather than whether the challenge was in itself reckless (which it clearly was in this case). If the officials applied the same ruling as they do for, say, high tackles (under...
