Re: County Cup finals

I can confirm that 1 of the South side has played 2 or 3 games of first team rugby at the beginning of the season but not in the position he played on Tuesday. A number of them older lads have played for the third team, but to be fair that's a lower level than Colts rugby. As for the step up next se...

Re: County Cup finals

I think emotion got the better of both sides on the night and defences came out on top. Both sides have played high quality rugby over the season and maybe the pressure of playing on the hallowed turf for the big prize was just too much. As a south fan I can't disagree that taking territory into acc...

Re: County Cup finals

Syston did come back well, helped by a couple of very dodgy try decisions. I was too far away to see the Hinckley try decision but they did seem confident. The actions of their full back though were just stupid and deserving of a yellow card.

Re: County Cup finals

Double victory for South 10-9 in the Colts against Hinckley, and 34-27 against Syston and a hugely biased ref who shouldn't be allowed to ref any higher than vets.

As a slight aside if you watch Saracens at the moment they have devices taped behind their ears which are being used in studies on the effects of concussion

Re: 2014/15 Rumours/Contracts/Signings part 3

As he won't be playing for Wales, a good signing. If the Dr Roberts signing is true as well, definite signs of intent from Quins Presumably Gatland won't give a fig....... Roberts will go to Quins, Racing Metro have released him (with no fee) Are there issues at Racing? They let Sexton go early too...

Re: Dan Cole

Agree with all that said. Dan turns 28 in May I think so with a bit of luck he'll stay at home till after the next world cup then head off to the south of France for a well deserved pension top up.

Re: Tigers need a new surface

I believe this was discussed at the last fans evening with Vickers and Cohen. The cost of the pitch would be around £800k which the banks will not finance until after the stand is completed which has already been financed

Re: Lawes

Short memories some, there was a Tigers 9 who developed a technique of going for a kickers standing foot when supposedly attempting a charge down. How he never maimed anyone I don't know, but I don't remember 4 pages of debate about that.
