Re: Tom and Scott loan Tigers money

There is also speculation that in the Budget tomorrow, the Government backed Support Winter Survival Package, which Tigers look to have utilised, will be extended into the Summer. It was set up last November, when it was envisaged that spectators would be returning by 1 April. It is mostly in the fo...

Some are speculating that David Williams might go out on loan. He is listed, and pictured in team colours, on the Nottingham senior squad for their upcoming season. Looks as if he has already returned.

Re: Has Rugby Got a Fan Problem?

Abuse and threats via social media are rife across all parts of life, and unfortunately rugby 'fans' are no exception. This weekend's death threats made to Ellis Genge, and the abuse sent to the BBC reporter are the latest examples. It's a huge and growing societal problem, and allowing the social m...

Re: BRISTOL vs TIGERS - Sat 27 Feb 21 (1300)

Well, this looks 'interesting'. Comparing the two line-ups looks very scary - especially the backs, where the starting player with the most Tigers appearances is... JVP.

Re: Progress Under Borthwick

Those not in his plans are being cut loose quite ruthlessly. He is actively shaping the squad, not waiting it out. That is promising,...

Re: 20th Feb 2021 - Home vs Wasps

The bookies see this as a close one, and the teams seem to be well matched, on paper at least.
So, should be a good one.
Like that Wiese is back, and Moroni back in position.
As ever, discipline and keeping 15 on the pitch will be key, and especially so with trying to keep Maxwell-Keys on side.
