Re: Premier league final day.

I think the only thing we can learn from soccer is how not to do things. The cap keeps things competitive and, whilst I would like to see more alignment with France/Ireland, an unrestricted, free for all market is surely a road to ruin.

Ok, so why didn't Ref penalise him? Anyway no matter what I think both Argentina and England are out.
A weak referee is irrelevant. There was a conspiracy to, basically, cheat. End of.

7s ethics?

In the world 7s tournament an English player stood behind the Argentine goal line for 2 minutes unchallenged and then dotted down. This winding down of the clock meant both England and Argentina qualified at the expense of Canada. Smart, but hardly in the spirit of the game. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sp...

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 04th June 2022 KO 15:00

Ashton in for Nadolo, he's looking hungry in defence and attack every time I've seen him play. Nadolo, sadly, slow and lumbering and kicks the ball like an old fashioned prop.

Re: Tigers v Newcastle (A) 21st May 2022 KO 15:00

Lots of passes went astray, not just Wiggy's. When Ashton very nearly scored in the first 90 seconds I thought we might be in for watching Newcastle get a lambasting. But it all calmed down, communication seemed poor, there was inaccuracy and, something I'd hoped we'd eliminated, uncertainty. This w...

Re: Tigers v Newcastle (A) 21st May 2022 KO 15:00

One good thing was the small number of penalties we conceded and our disruption of their lineouts and scrums.

Re: Tigers v Newcastle (A) 21st May 2022 KO 15:00

We’ve won by 22 away from home and the usual suspects are saying it’s not enough of a performance to win against Wasps. This after a spell where I’m sure a broken leg affected some players. Can’t have been easy seeing your mate laying there like that. Great performance. Excuse me, I'm not in the &q...

8 points above Sarries who have Saints and Gloucester to play with maximum of 10 points.
So if Saints can deny a TBP win then we only need 1 point to secure 1st.
We will smash Wasps anyway!
Not if we play like that we won't.

Re: Tigers v Newcastle (A) 21st May 2022 KO 15:00

Terrible injury to Dolly. This is a game between 1st and 10th but it doesn't look like it. The unforced errors have made us slow and blunted our attack. We should be way ahead. Some of our defending has been poor too. Allowing breaks through the same hole in successive plays???? I hope Borthers is g...

Easy to criticise the officials but Tempest has almost lost control of this in my view. Lots of chatter and confusion
He had to yellow card ?Ross for abuse. There seems to be a lot more chopsy over the last few weeks.

And, according to Ben Kay, players who, when they get to the line, "don't panic".

Bookies have this as an 11 point winning margin for Tigers.
For those who follow this sort of thing, does anyone have any stats on how accurate these bookies have been? If they're anything like the Today programme racing tipster, it will be little better than chance.

It used to be we had pockets in our shorts - to keep a half-time cigarette in, or whatever took your fancy.
