Re: Tigers v Wasps Sunday March 25th

http://www.englandrugby.com/news/tigers-malouf-appear-before-disciplinary-panel/?sf185590852=1 Malouf cited. Didn't think this was a yellow, let alone a citing. Wade is 4ft tall (you know what I mean) and any tackle above waist height will undoubtedly come in contact with his neck area, especially ...

Re: So .... rest of the season

So I did a bit of a spreadsheet to ascertain what would happen based on results. These are the points from matches I decided on (I know I've got Tigers winning all #optimistic) which would leave the top 6 as ...

Firtsly, well done. That's no mean feat.
Keep us informed when it's complete and out of Beta. I'd love to ask Alexa about the Tigers :smt023

Re: Injury Curse Strikes yet again

Damage to the meniscus isn't a serious injury and it should be rectified with keyhole surgery. If all goes well He should be fully fit easily within 12 weeks. It's bad news but not THAT bad. I kinda think it's Karma, either that or simple, plain old bad luck

Re: Weakness Yesterday

It appears, statistically speaking, that the weak link defensively was Betham ... 2 tackles and 4 missed. Tait was 8 tackles and 3 missed. Stats do not take into account positions though. All in all I was reasonably pleased with the lads efforts, if it wasn't for the 10 metre 'walk' and the conseque...

Re: Marcos retires

A Tiger to the core and a true legend. He will be sorely missed on and off the pitch. My only wish is for him to be able to pass on his undoubted talent to others by a coaching position.

Re: 2015/16 Squad/Contracts/Rumours and Transfers Thread Par

I have heard a rumour that we have an unannounced, big name 15 coming. No names given but strong rumour.
As news goes, that's pretty lame but tantalising.

PS Something very loose about Horacio Agulla returning too

Re: The AP run-in

I think the fight for 5th and 6th is interesting and will keep Sale, Saints and Quins 'real' in the last few games. I too think passing Exeter is within reason as they have Wasps and Quins to play. Quins have Irish and then Exeter at home. Irish could be a 5 pointer for them, so if Saints drop one a...

Re: Tigers v Stade Team.

For me there were stand out players across the board, Burns, Veainu, Betham, with great performances from Youngs, Tait, O'Connor and Kitch (especially in the lineout). However and this is purely looking at the stats for the game, Barrow had an immense day, especially defensively. 21 tackles (1 misse...

The second instalment of this cryptic piece of marketing is up and apparently we have an underground secret facility where we engineer our players. Yes, right beneath Welford Road. I'm intrigued. Your conspiracy theories would be appreciated Here's the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlGU9UoQ18Y

Re: Gloucs v Tigers Live Online

Looking at the stats and as expected, we tackled our skins off on Saturday. Harrison and Barrow particularly with 15 tackles each followed by Ayerza, Kitchener and Fitzgerald, all in double figures. A great win based on solid defending and scintillating counter attacks. Betham had a great game crack...

Re: Barnes (again)

All I have to say is "2 scrums", 2, all game. There was numerous knock-ons went 'unseen' and a few forward passes too, by both teams.

Re: Teams up v Saints

One thing that struck me about Barnes' reffing style is that he likes to keep the game flowing so he lets incidents ride. My block in the Crumbie seemed to see numerous knock-ons and forward passes (on both sides) that he just didn't call, this bore out in the number of scrums awarded (2). This did ...
