Re: East Midlands Final - the wanted final!!

I currently expect lawes and clark to be fine in a fortnight. both are often seen with strapping but it doesn't stop them turning out when the next game comes around. pisi and waldouck are our only injuries at the moment(unless there is news from yesterday not yet on the radar)but James Wilson had a...

Re: East Midlands Final - the wanted final!!

here I am :smt006 obviously delighted to have reached the final. bought my tickets in January so sitting pretty (they arrived on Saturday which I took as a good omen and so it was...) tigers will rightly start favourites but no doubt that was the case in at least some of those 5 finals you have lost...

Re: Sale vs Gloucester

delightful result from a saints perspective, provided we can press home the advantage visiting the London welsh in oxford on sunday. I think we will, but see this game as potential banana skin rather than a bye. after all, as sale reminded glaws tonight the bottom part of the table will shock the to...

Re: Bath sign Matt Garvey

while technically correct on twelvetrees, it might also be seen as a bit cheeky for tigers to claim all the glory given he only made the eps breakthrough after leaving you.

Re: Prem Final Tickets

bought mine months back. done the same for a few years now. the club allocations are so small it'll be feeding frenzy at those clubs who do get there. so if its saints (yes, thats right, a big if perhaps :smt010 )i'll be sitting pretty. even if it isnt saints, we'll go and have a nice day out. i am ...

Re: Tigers v the Sinners (Northampton Saints)

better team won on the day, darn ya, and the bragging rights stay up there (for now - they are only ever out on loan!) things clicked for tigers, nothing seemed to go right for saints - once or twice in the second and third quarters i thought we were about to get the initiative and momntum back but ...

Re: Marcus Ayerza

he was good in the loose but ayerza forgot to bind until about the fourth or fifth scrum. even after that mercey was still on top at scrumtime (until he went off)

accounts of his infallibity are exaggerated.

Re: North to Stains

trust me, i think every saints fan would dearly love this to come off but i wont be counting my chickens just yet. it seems george has a sister in the area, and is a reasonably frequent visitor. plus seen lunching with jim mallinder this very week, who said recently what he wanted to sign most was a...

Re: Is it me........?

smurphs - fair play to you. i enjoy banter and a lively debate too, thats why i visit opposition forums, but i reckon i did make a comment too far. nothing personal, and i look forward to our next tussle. :smt023

youngtiger - refusing to agree to disagree? its novel, i'll give you that. :smt016

Re: Is it me........?

a) you would argue tom youngs had a good game today then? :smt017 b) both are good hookers, but we will simply have to agree to disagree on whether youngs or hartley has more to offer england c) my being a saints supporter is not a secret and will be well known to regular readers of this forum but i...

Re: Is it me........?

many on here seem to have a massive blind spot as to how tom youngs played today - weak in the scrum, mixed at the lineout, poor discipline meaning too many silly silly penalties. few if any of the england team covered themselves in glory today, wales definitely the better team on the day but tom y ...

Re: Squad Changes 2013-2014 Season & Transfer Rumours Thread

tom may is the oft mentioned utility back. he can do a decent job from 10-15 when called upon. still a decent turn of pace, good rugby brain. i would be sad to see him leave,whether to you or welsh or someone else - i know saints made him an offer and i reckon he is still a good guy to have in the s...
