Re: Wasps Vs Tigers

When reviewing the fixture list pragmatically and allowing for new players and combinations to bed in I imagined that at this stage we would have 5 points - 4 from Newcastle at home and a losing bonus from yesterday so 7 is better than I expected. We already have 3 bonus points how long did it take ...

Re: Wasps Vs Tigers

Every good head coach realises that he has to balance the needs of the moment against those of the medium to long term. The world cup is on the horizon and there will be other international commitments before then. Apart from Bateman our starting and bench cover props are internationals and availabl...

Re: Wasps Vs Tigers

Great to get 2 points after the sending off. Great to see so much heart in adversity. With 15 men I think we could have won that. Great to see all the youngsters given a run. Need to get the lineout back on track and improve further in defence. Moving in the right direction though and I'm encouraged...

Re: Gloucester v Bristol

Unsure what the wording was first time but the ref seemed to infer that the it was a specific warning first time and then a general team warning second time. Bristol crumbled when down to 14 and are fading now as their pack looks exhausted after running the ball from stupid positions all first half...

Re: Tigers Vs Worcester Cavaliers - Prem Shield

interesting that 5 of our 23 are listed as Coventry players ... is this retaliation for Wasps recent digging in our potato patch, or are these just old loyalties prior Wasps cheeky move north bound in search of lusher pastures? It may also have to do with the fact that a certain Louis Deacon is for...

England’s top rugby clubs unanimously agree sale of a majority stake of Premiership to private equity firm CVC is “not their preferred option”. Don’t reject takeover offer, & will explore outside investment “as a matter of urgency”, but only want to sell minority stake.

Good call

Re: Tigers v Falcons

I think you're being harsh on Veainu. Had it been the other way round, we'd have been saying what an excellent finish it was from Veainu. Goneva is a world class finisher and his pace and strength got him around Veainu. [/quote] I agree with this assessment. Goneva's pick up of the loose ball for hi...

Re: Wasps Vs Tigers

Having watched Wasps v Exeter everyone is spot on about not kicking the ball away. Assuming Daley is still at fullback for them he will run back any wayward kicks with interest. However the fact that he was at 15 meant there were defensive issues in the centres which Slade exploited on a number of ...

Re: Tigers v Falcons

Agree with all your points mol2. I would add that Ben Youngs provided very quick service from the base of rucks in the first half in particular. There was none of the take two steps, have a look around and then decide who to pass to that we have become used to which helped the speed of attack and ga...

Re: Stewards: where are they when you need them?

I hope your friend has made / makes a full recovery. I've submitted my bag for search on a number of occasions including yesterday and I've noticed people with bags going in unsearched. I would have thought that, if bag searches are required, then everyone with a bag should be searched or what's the...

Re: Tigers v Falcons

Correct me if I’m wrong, but the 12 would normally run the “D” so having a different guy in that position wouldnt have helped. Toomua, then Eastmond and then he’s replaced...not ideal. Someone show Manu the clips of him jumping out of the line leaving everyone else to pick up the pieces.....please....

Re: Wasps Vs Tigers

For those that didn’t see it really nasty collision with the Exeter 9s Head. Hughes has to be a doubt for them next week too Looks like we might be minus Brendan O'Connor. Geordie post match interview said we are awaiting medical assessment on his hamstring. If category 1 injury a week to 10 days r...

Let’s hope Murphy does the job. Gerard Meagher in the Guardian does have a point however https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2018/sep/07/geordan-murphy-appointment-leicester-old-routine I guess time will tell if we’re following the likes of Saints and Glaws The difference is that neither Glos nor the...

Re: Murphy wants the job full time

I haven’t seen any progress in the backs from Geordan that justifies him as a decent back coach let alone a shot at head coach! A great player, YES A great servant and tiger through and through YES A coach of any description NO. Very few set plays that come off, regular handling errors and a 10, 12...

Re: Tigers v Falcons

I see nothing from the Falcons that should concern us Unlike last season! I admire your optimism regarding the bp! I reckon Tigers will win, but doubt if they'll score four tries. Should be close with Tigers shading it by 5 or 6. I'll take any type of win as long as the performance improves signifc...
