Re: England v Ireland

Good shift from the Tigers boys, especially Manu, great turnover just now and beast ball in hand. All except Youngs, passing hasn’t been to the man, kicking too far. Do like Cokanasiga, but isn’t very dynamic at this level. For me Nowell or Watson on the right wing. England have picked Ireland apar...

Re: England v Wales

Will Greenwood has done a player by player breakdown in the DT. He says of Ford; "George Ford (Fly half, Leicester Tigers, 56 caps) Had an indifferent season at Leicester but if England need someone to make flat passes on the gainline then he’s your man. I’d like to see his goal kicking improve by f...

Re: England v Wales

All 6 Tigers in the 31.

Only 2 scrum halves and 2 tight heads, risky!

Feel particularly sorry for Spencer.

Re: England v Wales

Should be an interesting game, lots of players playing for their place in the final 31which is announced on Monday. Wales are virtually at full strength, probably start favourites. I'm also very keen to see Underhill and Curry in tandem, supposedly Curry will play 6 and to be fair he is big enough t...

Re: England Treviso training camp

Bad news for Brad Shields home with foot injury, but I think most would say good news for England with Dombrandt replacing him, far better player IMO!!

Yeah, it was terrible wasn't it. Had trouble staying awake.

And the play offs are such a terrible idea. The League winners should get the Trophy.

Not!

Great game. Great final. Well done Sarries. Jealousy will get you nowhere.

Re: Weekend match thread - 31st May 2019

Well it was a fantastic game of rugby, with by far the best two teams in England. Really enjoyed the whole match, such skill, commitment and passion. Looking at Sarries side it's obvious why they are so good, they have outstanding players in every position. But Exeter really are the ultimate team, y...

Re: Sir Barnes

Agree with all the comments, he is by far the best ref in the world from what I've seen.

Why would you want to retire when you're in your prime? Doesn't make sense to me.

Hope he stays on for a couple more years yet.

Re: Tigers vs Bath

No comparison between those two teams regrettably. I can see another embarrassing home defeat, just to finish the season in the style to which we have become accustomed! Obviously very much hope they prove me wrong!!!!!!!! No comparison? Except that we're better at 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12? I a...

I certainly won't find anything comical about losing to Bath at home, but I love Loretta's comment about shooting the horse in February..... :smt002 :smt003

Great club servant who always exhibited the very best on and off the field.
All we can do is give him a good send off and wish him all the best in his future endeavours

A real Tiger !!

Re: Quins vs Tigers

Yes ellis winning is the most important thing and it is possible to do so with a limited game plan, but at some point other teams work you out and the plan needs to evolve. Look at Sarries very limited game plan a few years ago under Venter, we all hated the style but had grudging respect, now we ha...
