Re: Danny Cipriani - Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

Never been a fan but I actually thought he was on the way back to being a grown up and then ……………………..

A talent wasted.

Re: Sam Warburton Retires

Always a pity when a career is cut short but have to ask as to whether he was as good as the press say he was. In my view no. I ternational class then yes but a great the it has to be a no from me

Re: A nice article about Harry Ellis

What an article from such a modest man. He was always a favourite of mine and injury is a cruel master. One of the best Tigers 9s without a doubt.

Enjoy your career and look forward to seeing Ellis Jnr in a 9 shirt at Welford Riad :smt023

Re: Croft retires

Its all about what your definition of exceptional is.... Personally, I don't think he was - but I do think he was a very good player (you'll have to forgive me, my memory is only so long) and Tigers were lucky to have him. Sorry to see that he has decided to retire. Its like the definition of 'deve...

Re: Croft retires

I always thought he was a player unlucky to be playing in the era he did. If he'd been in the amateur days he would have been a truly exceptional back row forward , world class in every way, if he was coming through now he'd be a world class centre. Good luck to him. Aren't most of us agreed - with...

Re: Castres vs Tigers

Gutless, inept, no direction. Regrettably after 25 years looking like season ticket cancellation. ☹️😭 Pretty Fickle You really think so? After 25 years of good money and support? Don't patronise me. I have never been a good time supporter as some tend to be but until the club stop thinking we are t...

Re: Over Reaction to Defeats

We have lost the last 4 games, but who were we playing? 1, Two games against arguably the best team in the Celtic league. 2, The |Aviva Champions of 2015/2016. 3. The current Aviva champions. No the time to get worried is if we fail to get maximum points against the league's bottom club. It isnt th...

Re: Over Reaction to Defeats

Also I'm not sure why we have completely written off Europe. We are not yet out of Europe. If we get 2 BP wins we would be on 16. If Munster lose both games and get no BP they would be on 15. If Racing beat Munster and lose to us and get no BPs they would be on 15 If Castres beat Munster and lose t...

Re: Blaze gone

I have to confess that being out of the country I have only just picked this up. Couple of points or so 1 surely the team know what a lineout does 2 apart from calls should they not have the techniques already 3 IMHO Blaze was given a job based on early retirement/international potential OK guys - w...

Re: New name on the trophy

Can you please explain to me who are proper rugby clubs and who are not proper rugby clubs. A club with a rugby ethos, local identity and part of the community and not reliant on outside money. Wasps are/were/should be a London club but have travelled to Wycombe and now Coventry with scant regard f...
