Re: Wasps are not welcome in Coventry

Recent posters on this board have rubbished various clubs with not very nice statements, Saracens, Wasps and Bath are the recent recipients of this abuse. Personally I cannot understand why posters feel this way or post such nasty comments, without these and the other clubs in the premiership we wo...

Do we think Browning may have a knock? Would have thought he may have got at least a run out in the prem cup off the bench and wasn’t in the Notts side either this weekend?
I understand that he was so poor against Coventry that simply he’s been dropped.

Re: AUTUMN INTERNATIONALS 2021

If the set piece doesn’t perform then this will be a comfortable power game win for SA. Selection of Marchant on the wing is just odd, going to need some massive performances from the likes of Itoje and Smith at 10. Simmonds and Dombrandt need to come on and make an impact, Curry and Underhill will...

Hotel

Just come passed WR, starting my journey to Cardiff. They’ve started unwrapping the hotel. Sorry to say it’s not what you could describe as attractive.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Lord of the Mauls

Ford is one of the best distributing 10s in the game, IMHO. His timing of passes is not far off perfect, and therefore can put runners through the tiniest of gaps. In this regard, he is IMHO, world class. I cannot think actually of a better 10 for this. His game management is also IMHO definitely u...

Yeah,why doesn’t Farrell have to go away “and work on things”? He’s got way more flaws than Ford!
It could just simply be that Farrell is an alpha male within the group whereas Ford is a loner so doesn’t offer the leadership that’s wanted from a 10.

Nick Dolly makes the bench!!! half expected it to be Singleton
What a weird selection, bearing in mind the weakest part of his game is the scrum!

Re: AUTUMN INTERNATIONALS 2021

if they had showed the full tackle I don't think the ref gets confused, they only showed the second effort Yes see what you mean, 100% a red though stonewall. What was he doing going in for a second bite?! Presuming by the way he wrapped or attempted to wrap the right arm he was trying to stop the ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Lord of the Mauls

Obviously no one in the club wants him to leave (yet). However it is the natural course of events for most players in professional sport. Having waxed lyrical about the strength of the squad very recently, perhaps losing such a key player such as Ford highlights the fact that it is a never-ending j...

Re: AUTUMN INTERNATIONALS 2021

Suggestion that Bevan Rodd will be the replacement called up. I really rate Rodd so I'd be happy to see that. England have lots of props with very high tackle counts and/or ones that are good ball carriers but they haven't had much breakdown presence from a prop for a long time which Rodd offers. T...

3 Saints
4 Irish
5 Wasps
6 Bath
7 Sarries
8 Exeter
9 Newcastle
10 Gloucester
11 Worcester
12 Sale

Aside from Richardson...was there anyone else playing for Cov ?
Hurd on the bench and Aspland-robinson was down as 15
Aspland-Robinson didn’t play....don’t remember Hurd although I guess he came on at some point
The Cov scrum was better when the replacement front rows were on.

Re: Championship rugby

Well, Nottingham didn’t really turn up at the Butts Arena......errors and intercepts gift wrapped to Coventry. Pretty much done and dusted at half time. Lancaster played at 12 and was solid without being great. Browning tried but didn’t get much ball. The bench emptied but Notts couldn’t get a foot...

Re: Bath - Home - 05th November 2021

Potter showed his worth tonight in his absence. There was a lot of effort put in by everyone tonight but just did not feel together. But we win and get all the points. Reflecting on all the games so far, 2 good running games give us the expectation that we score running tires every week.this mix of...
