Re: Coventry crowd

They were also forced into having an artificial pitch as a requirement of their lease at Allianz. The pitch needs to be available to the community year round and it only works if artificial. Don't know if it is not so good as Newcastle/Glasgow, but I had a run round on it a few years ago and it seem...

Re: Coventry crowd

The Ricoh is a soulless place even when full, why not have this semi at WRd, a proper rugby ground and I reckon a fair few Tigers fans would have turned out as well. Just plain poor planning by the organisers. As for Sarries they were quite magnificent yesterday. They are a credit to the English Pre...

Re: Guy Thompson

Player of the season. The only other candidate being Ford.

It's not just their ability, it's their mentality.

Re: Tigers v Newcastle - 12th April 2019

Gritty performance by the team last night. Yes we gave away a couple of silly tries, but overall the defence was better and the commitment was certainly there. Standout performance by Thomo. Good performances by Ford, Toomua, Spencer and Fitzgerald. But all played better, even Williams! I'm much mor...

Re: Toomua

He played very well last night and I'm sure he will be with us until the end of the season.

Re: Folau

I would defend free speech every day, except when inciting violence. But just because something is not illegal, does not make it right and very possibly the person's employer will take a very different view to any Court. So quite rightly in this case Folau will lose his job, he has plenty of previou...

Re: Tigers v Newcastle - 12th April 2019

Well tigersteve and Robes, I too have been supporting Tigers for 40 years but have not "escaped" to France, preferring the odd sojourn over the channel, whilst remaining in the old County! Every time I see our team announced I think, that's not bad, should be good enough to win or get close.... But ...

Re: Catering & Bar Feedback Season 2017/18 & 2018/2019

The Speed bar in the old Captains Bar was the only one that pre poured pints and served the punters quickly. It's not rocket science to do the same in the main stadium bars, it's pretty obvious when the busy times occur!!!! As for training of the staff........it seems to be none existent, but in rea...

Yes he is a plonker! It seems that all religious extremists are zealots of one form or another, no matter what religion they practice. With regard to the Tasmanian Parliament making it optional to register the sex of a child on a birth certificate however, I suspect he will not be the only one to be...

Re: Tigers v Newcastle - 12th March 2019

Regardless of so called ability/class, we should play the players that are up for the fight. The next few games will be about guts and desire, we have to rekindle the old Tigers spirit, if that means dropping some of the "stars" then so be it. I would hope that GM and MF between them will be well a...

Re: Toomua

If true maybe the abuse he received on twitter from moronic so called Tiger's fans played a part. Let's hope it's not true and I believe it would be out of character. I have commented on the social media thread re the abuse which is truly disgusting, I just hope they can identify the perpetrators, ...

Re: Club address social media abuse

Totally agree. I also don't use social media and think that keyboard abusers are the lowest of the low, just cowards and frankly pathetic. The Club will be fully justified to ban for life anyone that has been abusive to the players and particularly their families. I'm really glad I don't see this st...

Re: Guy Novès may be looking for a job!

Novès is a legend here in Toulouse having guided Stade Toulousain to French Champions on numerous occasions between 1993 and 2015 and four times European champions, so calling him a first rate coach is perfectly justified. However, the French XV has been at loggerheads with the club structure and t...

Kerr, Wells and Thompson have to come into the starting pack. All bring grit and determination that we’ll need against Newcastle.
"Grit and determination"......we need a bloomin' miracle!!!!!
