Re: Borthwick

[Yesterday vs Chiefs, and at other times. Too much trying to run it out of extremely vulnerable field positions/within the 22m. Sometimes necessary to hoof it fwd into touch to regather one’s selves.] Borthwick. If every fan is willing to chip in the £ equivalent of one tkt, I reckon we should be ab...

Re: Board of Director changes

Rather than making the sale of the Club more difficult, offloading such a puffed up and outspoken individual as Lord Digby Jones* will make the sale of the club more straightforward I would have thought. (*He is also pretentious, on Twitter styling himself as if he's an Earl - Digby, Lord Jones - wh...

Re: Exeter Chiefs 21st December

I hope Harrison is included in the match day squad and gets some game time for a final Welford Road appearance.

Even if one thinks he's gone off the boil rather, he's been a massive contributor as a reliable Club player.

Re: European Challenge Cup - Cardiff vs Tigers

I am neither a happy clapper nor a doommonger. Such polarisation and ding donging doesn’t really help anyone, certainly not the players. I was aware before the season started that it was likely to be a difficult one. It is. I hope a last gasp win away will give our predominantly young and new-to-the...

Re: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Conflict of interest. I'm still not seeing why this is a problem for Tigers! BK doesn't hide his Board status - I've seen him refer to it a number of times when asked about matters off the field regarding Tigers. It really doesn't figure when he's talking about on-field stuff where he's just anothe...

Rugby paper saying Genge has snubbed a offer from Bristol and is close to signing a 3 year contract with Tigers
Offer from Bristol? But they aren't allowed to talk to him prior to January.
The rule in your last sentence didn’t stop Mike Ford poaching George for Bath.

Re: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

For me, Ben Kay needs to deice on whether he wants be a BT Pundit or a board member, not both. In my view it has to be the former. Spot on. I make no comment - none - on Ben Kay's ability or performance either as a BT pundit or Board Member... Someone needs to explain to me why he can't 'do both'. ...

Re: Will anyone want to buy the club??

If KP bought the club, I think you’d find it wouldn’t be too long before a move to the Crisp Bowl is on the cards, and selling the WRd estate for redevelopment.

Re: Borthwick

Whatever the story - we’ll find out in due course - it’ll be part of the implementation of the Pat Howard review last Spring.

Borthers will bring Gnarl (and make our for sale Club a more attractive buy).

Re: cashless madness - or is it??

Many venues now operate a contactless/electronic payment policy ... except they usually also provide one cash queue at each outlet point. Contactless/electronic will suit many, and certainly the Club as regards admin. But not everyone has a card (children have already been mentioned, but this extend...

Re: New Kit

1. Leave it until after all the other clubs, when people are a bit fed up waiting and no longer particularly care one way or another. 2. Announce it, and strike while the iron is hot by ensuring that people can't buy, or even pre-order for another month. Another defeat snatched from the jaws of vict...

Re: New Kit

Several shades of green have been used. A difficulty I have with the current kit green is that beyond the h/w line it looks black. And beyond the far 22m line it all blends with the background of the supporters, adverts, etc. I can’t believe I’m alone. A more distinct green might make distinguishing...

Re: New Kit

The issue is not a deal with Kukri or not, but the deal with Kitbag, in whose hands matters of Tigers kit lies and who therefore have control over which manufacturer will supply kit and over what period, the Club having some but not overriding input. The Club is looking forward to getting back contr...
