Re: Wuss vs Tigers

Great win! But Eddie can keep Ford ;)
There is definitely a big decision looming for MoC as to who plays 10 when the 6 Nations are over, George Ford is a top class player but it's hard to deny that Tigers look a much more potent force with Toomua @ FH

Re: The next 4 weeks

MOC basically said amongst his usual upbeat and repetitive excuses and spin that all the England players will be rested. The next round of premiership matches is on the weekend of 10th February, after the 6 nations has started, so MOC is resting the England players for Eddie Jones basically plus on...

Re: Tigers vs Falcons

Not a bad day for ex-Tigers aswell, 85th minute try by Ed Slater converted by Owen Williams for a 22-21 Glaws win.

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non Tigers 2016/17

BT Sport are reporting that Marlon Yarde has signed for Sale, Mr Diamond was not amused when asked about it pre-game but Monye seems pretty sure it's a done deal.

Re: England team for Saturday

Who's this bloke Leggy Salmon that Eddie Butler thinks is playing for the Pumas??
Can't bear to listen to him when he commentates on the French because of his exagerated pronounciation of the French names, unfortunately he seems to have started doing it for Argentina now aswell :smt013

Re: Good luck Cockerill with Toulon

What a good game that was! Toulon going down to 13 men for 15 minutes and still outscored Castres 7-0. Not always pretty but a real battle. The pitchside microphones even picked up Cockers motivating (I think that's the word) his team :smt002

Allez Les Pink

After all the off field turmoil the club and it's supporters have endured this season it was good to see them deservedly lift the Challenge Cup last night. Parisse was, as usual, inspirational, wouldn't he have looked great in a Tigers shirt? Don't know if Ze Stade Fan made the trip to Edinburgh but...

Re: Lions Squad

1)Gatland was completely bowled over by Wales performance in New Zealand last Summer where they had it tactically and strategically spot on. 2) Were it not for the last ten minutes then they could have won two of those games. That may be so Welshy 08 but one of the reasons the AB's are the best is ...

Players to strike?

Tom Youngs doesn't like the new season proposals and Christian Day doesn't rule out strike action, oh joy! more turmoil in the club game :smt009 .

Re: Away to Saints

Why wasn't Gengey MotM? :smt024
A good question, I think Goodey made the choice which might explain it.

To me the bigger surprise was, with all that attacking rugby, neither team got a TBP.

Re: Matt O'Connor In...Mauger Out

Can't for the life of me understand why AM wasn't kept on until the end of the season, mind you bringing O'Connor in even then would still have been a mistake IMO :smt013

Now reported on Daily Telegraph website. I wonder if the fans will buy into this, Ze Stade Fan has been far from complimentary about his neighbours in the past.

Re: Tigers v Glasgow

We have been told constantly on this forum by certain posters that Richard Cockerill had lost the dressing room, that the atmosphere behind the scenes was toxic. Well, he's not there now and while I was not deluded enough to think things would get better immediately I would at least have expected mo...
