Re: A Proper Clear Out

For me the boss, the head man, the top dog, the big cheese, the head honcho, number one For me, we need three more rolls of the dice. On the coaching side Mike Ford; and on the management side Ben Kay 'rugby committee', and Peter Tom, who has overseen the whole sorry mess and repeated the same bad ...

Re: Geordan Murphy leaves the club!

I just hope the fans can see beyond the results to recognise that he was handed a poison chalice, and it was loyalty to his Club that motivated him to try and dig it out of a hole. These recent times must never take away from Geordie's well-deserved playing legendary status. After tying the hands of...

Re: Captains Collection

Now having the shirt rights back in its hands, the Club can organise further production runs as required.

Re: The Rebuild

Why is it we making a Tigers/Wasps XV again? If you were to make a XV from Wasps and Tigers, what would it look like? I would go with something like: Cole Taylor Genge Launchbury Lavanini Willis Taufua Liebenberg Robson Ford Nadolo Gopperth Fekitoa Bassett Murimurivalu Seems pretty even to me. OK, B...

Re: Thoughts on the "Captain's Collection"?

Are the retro sponsors - Next and Goldstar - chipping into the Club, or free advertising? (Is Goldstar still a thing?)

Re: New Kit

For those whose blood pressure is going through the roof 🌡 because of delayed announcement day (you only have to wait until tomorrow), I feel pretty sure it’s simply to shift this ‘good news’ item as far as reasonably possible from the recent ‘bad news’ items.

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'. ...
