Re: London Irish: an immorality tale?

BFG, it is a fundamental concept in English law that everyone is innocent unless proved guilty. It is therefore wrong to describe a not guilty verdict as "controversial ". Not guilty means exactly what it says.

Re: London Irish: an immorality tale?

Firstly, there is no such thing as being "controversially" not guilty. Not guilty means innocent.
Secondly, have you read Matt Hampson's autobiography? Some interesting passages in there for you to ponder on.
Thirdly, while not all young men are saints not are all young women.

Re: A league match thread

Not a bad game. Introducing a league for the A teams seems to have made the matches between them much more competitive and better to watch than in past seasons. Like others, I was very impressed by Sam Bailey, who looked and played a bit like Maro Itoje and could have a big future. The number 14 (Si...

Re: Still stuck in the mud! - Development updates

All things considered, the new stand seems to be making good progress and it provides more seating than we need at present. Bill W(2), other posters who clearly know what they are talking about have explained to you, almost in words of one syllable, the situation with regard to alleged construction ...

Re: Stade Francais

What is all this talk about Stade Francais? According to Gary the Prat on BBC Radio 4 Sports this morning, Tigers opened their European campaign last night by beating Sale 33-20! What a shame that such a small crowd turned out to watch what was probably the best game seen at Welford Road for years. ...

Re: London Irish v Tigers

Although the last two games have produced narrow wins for Tigers they have been pretty dire as spectacles with little flair on show and the atrocious weather has obviously been a factor in this. The bad news is that, as the BT commentators were only too pleased to point out, Tigers have failed to sc...

Re: de chaves

I agree with all the other replies. De Chaves has been impressive in all his appearances for Tigers. I can only assume that amazing tiger did not really believe what his own post but was just trying to stir up positive comments about a good player who does not get mentioned much on the forum. Mind y...

Re: "A" team

I don't think too much importance should be placed on the score. This was a scratch Tigers team made up of academy and some loaned players who did not seem to have been introduced to each other. An experienced Worcester side ran riot in the first half, taking advantage of the lack of organisation in...

Re: WR Expansion before 2015-16 Season????

If I rightly recall, planning consent is only valid for five years without having to be renewed, so the original plans are not going to happen. I would imagine that their thinking has changed and would depend on what the club can afford. A planning permission only lasts for five years if it has not ...

Re: Why did Boris lead the team out yesterday?

Tigerbeat expects to be on the bench next week? Really?? Is that because of the shortage of props with Mulipola and Cole injured?
