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

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...

Re: Quins vs Tigers

The 2nd half performance was frankly a disgrace for a premiership rugby team. Individual mistake after individual mistake, followed by brainless penalties, one after the other. No wonder we could get no momentum and our playmakers lost confidence and started kicking the ball away when we did have it...

Re: It was 10 years ago...

I watched it in the Plough at Bruntingthorpe with two of my boys. We had snook away from a family party (my wife's ageing Aunt) in Shearsby and I said "We won't be long". When we returned 2.5 hours or so later my wife said; "Where have you been?" I said "there was extra time and penalties!!" She nee...

All users are entitled to their opinions and should be respected, even if you disagree. Thanks :smt015 :smt015 :smt015 Only a week or so ago lots of Tigers players and officials received completely unacceptable abuse on various social media platforms. Quite rightly the perpetrators were widely cond...

Re: Tigers v Bristol - 27th April 2019

In my view, the forwards carried well today especially Kalamafoni and Spencer, but the attack (especially from Toomua) was far too lateral and easily defendable. I thought one of their tries was a forward pass but I was far away in the Crumbie so I can’t say for sure. Personally I don’t think the l...

Re: Pat Howard

I'm not sure that JP was offering the Board his unequivocal support, but as so often on this forum, everything has to be black and white. Well JP has accused today's ref of actual bias (on the main match thread), that's pretty black and white! Having a bad day, poor, :censored: etc all opinions and...
