Re: Bath vs. Tigers - Sat 25 Jan 15:00

So - And I know i'm going to be lambasted - should the 6N be moved to the closed season. I know it is a big touring period for international tournaments and the "friendly tours" If we are concerned that Prem Clubs are being penalised for supporting international players and we are in one of the bea...

Re: England v Ireland travel

For Twickers I've tended to drive to Staines and park in Kingston Road Carpark (a small car park just before you get to the station). Getting back last time we found it worked quite well to walk to Whitton (the next station up the line (toward Staines) basically follow the duel carriageway to the ro...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Totally agree that the rest of this season will be a bit of a farce - the only way for it not to be is to disregard all games involving Sarries - play them as "friendlies" so as not to affect the positions of all clubs left. Will it happen? - of course not. In the case of the winning the H cup - th...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Sorry if I have misunderstood it, but have Saracens been relegated irrespective on the results till the end of the season. I was under the impression that they now have a penalty of 70 points. They are currently on -42, 53 behind Tigers with a maximum. Of 70 points available. If they were to claim ...

Re: What Now For Our Season?

Just adding my voice to the chorus of reminders that finishing 11th should be treated, internally, as though we had been relegated and other results should be seen in that light...

Re: Pau vs Tigers - Sat 18 Jan 20

Apologies if this has already been noted but I'd like to see us prioritise winning this trophy now that we're in no danger of going down and unlikely to reach the playoffs. There is a fair amount of discussion about this on another thread called ‘what now for our season’. I completely agree that wi...

Re: Championship Rugby

Let us not assign to this deliverance the attributes of a victory, titles are not won by cheats getting relegated instead of us... They are not you’re right, but considering our current position we are fighting to avoid relegation and ensure Premiership survival not for the title. Even the most opt...

Re: Tigers vs Cardiff - 12th January 2020

It's worth remembering that there is no selection that 100% guarantees a win or a loss, if there was then we wouldn't need to play the games, just swap team sheets and distribute the points. As others have said the next two weeks really ought to be about preparing for the seven, eight or nine that f...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Twenty years have passed since that time, the game has been pro for a long time now and the gap between leagues is very large. If demoted immediately Sarries could retain their contracted players and smash the opposition to pieces. That simply can't take place with an immediate demotion and anyone ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

What is tedious is Saracens repeated cheating. Before 2015 and after 2015. What is tedious is Nigel Wray being allowed to paint himself as the victim. What is tedious is Saracens laying claim to virtues of 'honesty' and 'integrity' on their stadium walls and tackle bags. What is tedious is the way ...

Re: Tigers vs Bristol - 04th January 2020

Well the result is a welcome one, we survived the now seemingly obligatory implosion between minutes 40 and about 55/60 and it's against a Bears team up in the top 4, but we need to stop having that implosion if we're to build on it. Hopefully the up tick in confidence will carry on through the Euro...

Re: Genge - Daily Mail

He clearly loves the club, rates the coaches and the direction which we’re trying to go in. Some on this forum should take a lead from that, but no doubt they’ll dismiss what he’s saying as ‘well, he would say that wouldn’t he?’. Well I for one believe he wouldn’t. Some on this forum would call him...

Re: Shazzam

We won't miss him because he's a "true tiger" or any other amateur-era sentimentality. We'll miss him because he's a consistently decent player who does a good job for the team. Hard to understand how he's the True Tiger, whilst the Youngs brothers get constantly slated. Low expectations perhaps. +...
