Re: No Championship play-offs for three seasons

Play offs are just cash cows, get rid of them all, sorry straw clearer, but what you propose is just ring fencing in disguise. Championship sides do not get Premiership resources so their player squad is smaller and generally less strong. Once the RFU actually support rugby and help the national le...

Re: Official history book has arrived

I've only flicked through it so far but it a) definitely worth the money and b) worth the wait. Many thanks to the two authors/researchers/archivers. Just on a 'flick through' basis - but the bit that caught my eye was the arbitrary picture of a league table ( not sure when from) in the intro sectio...

Re: Injury news

why are Tigers so reluctant to operate, how often do we see player X was trying to rehab, failed and then needed the op most docs would have sent him for weeks ago? Unless there is an 80% chance or better that the rehab will work and an op won't be needed just fix the problem it's better in the lon...

Re: Selling Tickets on Stubhub

IMHO, Stubhub is a complete rip off :smt013 The fees are very high for the effort that ebay are putting in to selling the ticket. I had to put my ST up and wanted £40 for it. The buyer was asked to pay £47 for it and I get £35. £12 for Stubhub / eBay! The user interface is very poor too. I also thin...

Re: Tigers kit

:smt023 Agreed

It's a shame we can't go back to Cotton Traders - the quality of their shirts, t-shirts, polo shirts, etc was superb.

Spare Ulster Ticket

I have a spare ticket for the Ulster match (if current circumstances prevail, it will be available for most of this season :smt022 ). Unfortunately, as it's a season ticket I have to go through Stubhub which doesn't allow sellers to add any kind of description. So..... The seat is in section DL of t...

Re: Injury news

It's only from my memory - which has often been accused of being flawed :smt002 - but doesn't RC usually use phrases like "we hope to have xyz fit for Saturday" or "player xyz could be out for x weeks"?

Or does that also mean that he is a "liar" ?

Re: Show your support for Richard Cockerill

Completely agree Phil! Clubs/teams are about supporting each other, the coaches, players, directors and the paying public, through both the thick and thin times. Whilst it's true that no one person is greater than the club, it is equally true that no one person should shoulder the responsibility whe...
