Re: The Six Nations 2019

Good to see the roof will be open in Cardiff this afternoon, Rugby is not an indoor sport. I guess Wales won’t need to water the pitch now, it’ll save them a fortune on the meter!

Up the Irish!

We will still have the problem next Season that a very large proportion of the wage cap will be spent on players who are only playing a relatively small number of games for Tigers .
But with specific reference to Manu, who is no doubt a marquee player, the cap is irrelevant.

Re: Manu to Racing 92?

I worry that if Manu does stay all that leaves us with cap wise is Taufua for Toomua and a few squad players rotating, not the major changes that we desperately need. I highly doubt that Taufua is the marquee signing. So imagine we would have some more quality incoming. I would hope that Manu is on...

Manu to sign new 3 year deal after turning down Racing according to multiple reports in France...
Some confirmation on that would be welcome. The uncertainty on the future of such a high earner must make budgeting the rest of the squad difficult, as well as picking up a marquee.

Re: Sarries being investigated

It seems to me that a key question in all of this is how much did the vunipolas, faz, wigglesworth et al pay for their shares?

I just hope the possible Manu situation will not get dragged out.
I suspect it already has been.

Re: The Six Nations 2019

All good points and good reasons to have doubts, but within the laws of the game would Owens be within his rights to change his mind once the penalty try was given?

Re: The Six Nations 2019

Point of order question. When a try is scored, it can be reviewed up until the conversion is taken. With a penalty try, there is now no conversion and it’s 7 points straight away and restart. So, when Nigel Owens decided to review, did he have the right to do so? If not, it suggests a bit of an over...

I think, sometimes, Eddie just likes to keep players on their toes.

All blacks website , http://www.allblacks.com/Player/U20?id=2180, describes him as playing with "relentless physicality". Like the sound of that. I think we can consider this signing an upgrade.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 5

Begs the question what is really happening at Wasps A lot of those who are leaving seems to be upset with the training facilities - the new facilities are some way off and have not yet received planning permission. [/quote] This is true, Cov rugby have better facilities than Wasps. Also, wasn't the...

Re: France's Wales

The pass from the young French lad which was intercepted by North was a shocker that just can't be accounted for, it was a complete momentum changer that France didn't have time to recover from. For what it's worth, even though the cameras at the time and consequently everyone else have blamed youn...
