New Rip Off Plastic Beer Mugs

Experienced the new plastic Beer Mugs at WR on Saturday and as result took one home after the match to return next time. I have just poured an exact pint into one and it has to be filled to the very top to get a pint in unlike last season when the plastic cup had a pint mark some half an inch from t...

Re: Tigers' decline

I think we have tried enough coaches over recent years to know that is not the immediate solution. I believe our biggest problem has been the negotiation of contracts and recruiting of both players and coaches. We have not used our salary cap as well as other clubs and have been unable to attract en...

Re: Simon Cohen and Ged Glynn

From the Crumbie stand, my view is that whoever has been negotiating contracts has done an appalling job in recent years. Good players have left, other players have perhaps been given more money than they are worth and more players than we would have liked have decided not to join us. Having been in...

Congratulations to Deano and Cockers

Many congratulations to Deano and Cockers who have both shown how good they are as head coaches. Both let go by Tigers and both with great track records since leaving. Clearly they need the right coaches around them and the right support above that allows them to retain and build a squad with the ri...

Re: Croft retires

Sad day but we knew it was coming. Thanks Tom for many wonderful rugby moments for me it was those two tries in Durban for the Lions in 2009 when we were sitting behind the posts where you scored.
Many thanks and best wishes for the next chapter in your career.

Re: Warren Gatland

Have you not seen? After his Lions experience Warren is now looking to abandoned Warrenball and is looking for a creative passing inside centre for Wales. He says he believes Wales may now have the players for a more subtle attacking style!

Re: Brings a tear to the eye....must be a bit Dusty

Had the pleasure of being hosted by Dusty on the Tigers organised trip for the Lions in SA in 2009. Great to see him back I can only assume the reason he chose to leave Tigers has now disappeared or been consigned to a different role. I am sure Dusty will be using his contacts and skill to unearth a...

All booked for Castres - flying into Toulouse from Birmingham and then hiring car. Had to book 3 nights to cover all match times. Hotel 200 yards from Irish Bar :-)

Re: Freddie Burns

Very sad to see Freddie go. He has developed into a real Tiger and is clearly a top bloke. Bath have done well getting a full time Freddie while we have a part time George with his England commitments.

Re: Voting for Awards glitch

Tried to vote for Player of the Year etc, and despite clearing all possible obstacles from my virus/malware list, it tells me it is a duplicate entry. Anyone else had same? I had exactly the same problem. Fixed it by putting in one of my other email addresses. Not sure there are any checks that you...

Re: Again - is it now time to thank Simon Cohen?!

Yes from me - the club has clear problems many of which fall at the CEO's door. I fact I wold far rather SC had gone instead of Cockers. I would have liked to see a new CEO come in and access the situation then decide whether Cockers should go or not. As it is I feel Cockers was actually doing a lot...

Re: Positive Posts only for The Great Cockerill

Very sad to hear the news this morning. I feel we have lost something today that we will find very hard to replace. Cockers was always approachable and a top bloke whenever I spoke with him. I suspect he will remind us how good he is when he lands his next coaching role.
I wish him all the best.

Very happy to give Manu time to return to full fitness before making judgements.
