Re: Wade makes an impact on 1st game

Good luck to him! Here's his latest run - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/american-football/49381366 Looks like he fluffed the touchdown there, when - like a good rugby player - he cut inside rather than going outside where his blockers would have been able to help him through. Stunning run, though ...

The Falcon have the same 'mixed' form as the Tigers.
I'd be pretty happy with having had their 'mixec' form. Three wins in their last four games and a competitive performance against Sarries. I'd take that over our last few beatings...

Re: Proof if proof were needed

.@robvickerman is at Allianz Park where @Saracens are missing six England players but have still named 10 internationals. plus absence of Liam Williams and Jacques Burger, Sean Maitland, Marcello Bosch et all. all within the salary cap of course? Its a joke competition! We have nine full internatio...

Re: The Six Nations 2019

Rub of the green in what sense? Pen try and Sink not going to the bin for being silly. Sinckler's incident was never a yellow card. The only time that would be carded is in a bad-tempered match where the ref needed to get back some control and discipline. I think we got lucky on the penalty try, mi...

Re: The Six Nations 2019

Don't think he's physical enough and goes missing too. He's bad enough for Quins,most of my Quins mates wouldn't have him in their best backrow. They'd far prefer Chisholm. Theres a player in there though,maybe injuries have curtailed his rise,let's see. Out of the 3 with potential Simmonds,Cliffor...

All good points and good reasons to have doubts, but within the laws of the game would Owens be within his rights to change his mind once the penalty try was given?
Yes. No conversion had been taken. He's allowed to review the decision.

Simmonds no,too underpowered at this level! Clifford too much of a luxury player too,with Wilson being able to play across the BR I'd have Shields if a change is made.
In what way is Clifford a luxury player?

Re: The England Squad

So if Dan is away for the whole tournament and doesn't get released back to us will we be taking Joe Heyes back as surely its better for his development to play first choice TH for us than with the under 20's? Yeah, probably. Depends how many other props we have available, but we certainly have the...

Re: Team News v Scarlets

The Scarlets hooker played at No8 last night, imagine Hartley or George at No 8, no thanks! Luke Cowan-Dickie on the other hand, sure. Some players are more suited to different positions. Not all Welsh hookers would be able to cover the back-row and not all English hookers are immobile. Sam Underhi...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 4

Jonathan Joseph still hasn't got a club next season. Is it worth trying to sign him? We gamble enough on another fragile centre. I doubt he’d be cheap enough to merit the risk. Is he a fragile player, or is he just injured at the moment? My recollection is that for most of his career he's had very ...

Re: Bath next week ....

Does anyone know Evans’ stats off the bench? Must have made more metres than most of our starting forwards! http://www.espn.co.uk/rugby/playerstats?gameId=293455&league=267979 3 carries for 15m. Not actually a lot, but eye-catching because of the metres per carry. Made slightly less ground than Pol...

Final match stats. http://www.espn.co.uk/rugby/matchstats?gameId=293455&league=267979 39 missed tackles, Genge missed 5, Wells 5, Fitzpatrick 4 worst offenders. Lack of ball carrying by forwards very clear. Depends on how and where the tackles were missed. If you hit someone and drive them back as ...

Re: Bath next week ....

Doyle had an interesting day, quite right about the illegality of the jump but then fails to tmo more obvious questions. What were his TJ's looking at? Stops the game for no injury, but allows play to head to a prone player resulting in a further injury. I presume some questions will be asked.... A...

Re: George Ford

George Ford was quoted in the Times this morning along with Geordan who said the club was at its "lowest ebb in the time I have been here". He (Ford) said, that the players care, that it's not an "effort thing" and that it hurts to lose especially at home. More significantly he said; "Everyone is s...
