Re: Saracens are relegated!

But everyone else apart from Salarycens had the same cap. Sorry, I don't see why we should feel hard done by, portray Tigers as victims or Exeter as villains. :smt017 With all 3 of those players, I'm sure Tigers could have offered them enough money to stay and sacrificed someone else instead. That'...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

I don't think we can blame Chiefs for pinching Salvi, from what I heard Salvi wanted to look around, when he came back and told the club he wanted to accept our offer, he was allegedly told "What offer", and so had to leave. That's the story I am aware of too (which came from Salvi himself, I may a...

Is May really going? Or are we at speculation stage? Apologies if I have missed the announcement.
Speculation at this stage. It has been reported that we've made him an offer but at reduced terms. He's understood to be unhappy and the rumours are that he's going to be heading back to Gloucester.

Surprised to see Manu in there, but maybe they think he needs a run out.
The bigger surprise for me is that he is skipper!

Re: Pau vs Tigers - Sat 18 Jan 20

Change of ref with Ben Whitehouse now the man in the middle for our game in Pau Not unhappy with that Was excellent when he started, very decisive and to the Laws but went off the boil, like too many do, in the name of 'entertainment. Better than Clancy though! :smt005 That's not hard - our 3 year ...

Re: Tigers vs Cardiff - 12th January 2020

I don't think White's delivery was slow for the whole game - there were situations where we, as.supporters, thought that he should have delivered the ball more swiftly than he did. However, there were a number of passages of play, mostly in the second half, where his delivery was more snappy and gav...

Clancy was awful with or without commentary
I'm surprised anyone expected any different. How he made it to the international panel is beyond me

Re: Tigers vs Cardiff - 12th January 2020

I thought that the two loan players looked decent in their first outings. Batley especially fronted up well in second row. The back play looked much better and Olowafela looks so much better this year than last - whether that's the return of TV I've no idea, but he's shown up well in the last two ma...

Re: Tigers vs Bristol - 04th January 2020

Having missed the game, I'm sad to say, I've only got the highlights to go on and with only one commentator and no summarisers to debate with (along with the clipped elements of the highlights) it looks a horrendous attempt at a 'tackle'. How sir and the tmo failed to send the Bristol player off is ...
