Re: Lions 2021

Nothing is definite - it's all a matter of opinion / judgment. I'm simply saying that, in my opinion, he wasn't competing for the ball - in which case I guess he was concerned more with the tackle. The duty of care (and the laws of the game) require him to ensure he does not tackle a player in the a...

Re: Lions 2021

Still disagree,i understand duty of care in making sure your opponent lands OK but I honestly believe Kolbe didn't see him until the last millisecond. Some one made a crazy point yesterday about you've still got eyes and they see everything, something along those lines,but they don't! You try it,lo...

Re: Lions 2021

Devils advocate,how is oompah loompah racist? So say for example it’s a female commentator (we have seen it many times in clubs,pubs etc where a lady is caked in orange foundation) and he called her a oompah lumpah. Is that a sackable offence too or have the PC brigade been on the case again? I fai...

Re: Lions 2021

I rather think Cowan-Dickie is making a habit of throwing himself front-on at the ball carriers legs. Knees don't bend that way so what he's doing is simply dangerous. For me, that's not a 'low tackle' - it's a cynical attempt to stop an opponent which risks serious injury.

Re: 7th May - Sale Away

Ben Youngs attempt at a 'tap and go' try should have resulted in a penalty try and a yellow card whilst Murimurivalu's try should have been given.

Enya is never easy! Game should have been a lot closer!

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Sale Sharks are announcing a new player on Wednesday, with the rose indicating that it's an England international. Wonder who it could be? https://twitter.com/SaleSharksRugby/status/1381536268484403207?s=19 I'm guessing not a new player and just a new deal for Manu. Credit to Sale if that is the ca...

Re: Tigers vs Falcons - 28th March 2021 at 15:00

I think Scott mentioned this earlier so apologies for repition if so, but the Falcons Forum makes interesting reading about the match. Seems that they were just as disgruntled as we were about Dickson’s performance. I think that’s the thing.. he didn’t necessarily favor one side over the other he w...

Re: Finn Russel red card

A contact sport is trying to protect contestants' heads. A thankless task, but it is being attempted and we are witnessing the outcome. In my opinion, Dulin's tackle attempt on Russell could be seen as the equivalent of a football 'dive.' He was never going to stop Russell by going high himself, he...
