Re: Geordie up before the beak...three week ban!

The bit that got me was the line about the judicial officer having regard to the fact that 'there was no direct impugning of the TMO's integrity' in mitigation.

After all, that's much worse than intimating there is a structural problem with cheating in refereeing. :smt023

Re: Tigers v Saints

Williams is not an 8 for me. Williams is not an 8 period. There are tried and tested options. Assuming Denton is still injured Evans, O'Connor and Thompson have all played there. For balance I would have Evans or O'Connor at 7, Thompson at 8 and Williams at 6. All of those fit are much lighter, the...

Re: Ellis Genge: An Inspiration

My post was more a comment on staff attitudes and the lack of willingness to stretch pupils in state schools. And don't forget, I'm talking about primary age children primarily. Wow - 'lack of willingness'. Guess independent schooling obscures the fact that state schools, its teachers, its budgets ...

Re: ANY SPECIAL MEMORIES?

Recent one: Matt Smith carrying Chris Ashton 15 metres over the try line.

Growing up: Neil Back "single-handedly" beating Munster in the Heineken Cup.

Re: amazing interview with Tiffany and Tom

Incredible that she states Alternative Treatment helped...simply because the NHS and The Government el al are so wedded to filling you full of drugs and dissing anything else.....

Re: Tigers v Newcastle Falcons

"Try yes or no."

- Not the last man in the previous ruck
- No conclusive evidence of grounding
- Knees on the floor before taking another go

"I can't see any reason not to award the try" (new question, new answer).

Re: Paddy Jackson

Sorry, .You are judging him when proper judges and a jury found him Not Guilty. That is how justice works. I am also sorry if "laddish" offends you but you have clearly not been on any rugby tours. The motto for which is usually, "what happens on tour, stays on tour". But that motto is not a free p...

Re: Paddy Jackson

Granted, the Irish courts have deemed him and his mates not guilty. A decision which many legal commentators in England and Wales didn’t agree with but nonetheless were found not guilty. His trail was in Belfast, ie the United Kingdom, not in an ‘Irish’ court, whatever that refers too. Crown Courts...

Auto response for the alt-right 'snowflake' meme (devised by the closet gay alt-right author of Fight Club AFAIK) is :smt019 I'm not sure about that; his political opinion is as ambiguous and awkward as David Lynch's so he's got the capacity to wind up everybody and nobody.

Re: For and against

Agreed; it wasn't that long ago (with Matt O'Connor as head coach, funnily enough) that we were the top team in the league for tries scored off first phase.

Re: Threats made against Cohen

Skin and Muscle a good friend of mine who is a Prison Governor and a fellow Tigers fan would strongly disagree with you, Depending on the offence a prison term of 15 years without remission is legally viewed as a life term. I stand by my point; a whole life tariff is a very different thing. Anyway ...

Re: Threats made against Cohen

Yes Ellis9 that is exactly what I meant and not just a slap on the wrists and a powder puff sentence or even worse a suspended sentence which I think should be abolished in their entirety, but at least a minimum of 3 years in prison without remission. If the offender is a young person he/she would ...
