Re: Progress under Borthwick 2021/22

I've just been watching "Rugby Tonight" 24hrs late on BT. L Dallaglio has just spent 5 minutes praising Tigers. I'm off for a lie down.

Quote "As for the reports being made public, I 100% think they should, in this current climate it’s all about transparency, what would be humiliating about someone actually saying they made the wrong decisions in hindsight?
