Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

I think we may also be forgetting that at 9 it may well be Wigglesworth.

The Future

At some point, one hopes, supporters will be allowed back into grounds to watch rugby.

Re: Is this season a Farce with the cancellations

Another thing that has always got me thinking is,have we ever had a virus,viral/bacterial infection in the history of mankind that has had such a wide array of symptoms as COVID?
