Re: European finals 2020

Just going back to the Bristol game, I was very impressed with the ref. Very controlled, good communication and actually called passes forward!!!!!!

Re: Semi Final thread

I don’t think it was to the head, but for me that should be irrelevant. Hill flew in, no arms, reckless. He had no idea where Falatau’s head would be. IMO it shouldn’t be based on outcome, but the action.

Re: Cycling tops in club colours......anyone?

I’ve said this before on another thread, I’d love to see a rash top (under wetsuit top), especially in the away shirt. Though given that Leicester is about as far from the sea as you can get without going underground, it may not sell

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

Forgive my green-tinted spectacles, but I thought the penalty on Lavanini was a load of rubbish. Firstly Lavanini didn't tuck his arm to lead in with the shoulder, he was going to make a tackle. van der Merwe tried to bounce him off, it was a rugby collision and he ended up rebounding backwards bef...

To be honest fielding this sort of team is fine (Well not fine...) under the current circumstances but you would have worries if this season was a proper season

Re: Referees

Re: Referees

Exeter’s second try. Great finish but final pass was clearly forward. Not checked by ref, TMO, not mentioned by commentary. Is this now a global conspiracy?
