Re: How much pain....... Tiger in Exeter

Cockers has put his stamp on Edinb'gh. They play similar. Shove it up ya jumper, hit the defence hope to break it and crash again. Very similar his tenure at Tigers. That's why we (Tigers) expected more and believed he ought to move on and the club forward. Had the board allowed Cockers the level of...

Re: Thoughts on the "Captain's Collection"?

When I saw Captains collection I thought Birdseye or fish fingers.

Re: Manu Tuilagi

Tigers managed Manu through his frequent injuries. Tigers and Manu will be forever linked for all the good reasons. I fear this is the end of a very successful career for Manu - an injury too far. All the best Manu and thanks for the good memories. S Diamond you gambled and lost. Your ego got the be...

Re: Tigers vs Quins - 04 Oct 20 15:00

If Brown is available for Squints then I'm going to count how many times we kick to him. Season gone. Sarries gone. Confidence gone. Chance of hoping for a W gone. Glass is no longer half full - empty. Enthusiasm for next season you've guest it gone. I'm going into hibernation like a bear not a grou...

Is it just me, or is there a bit of a Stimpson vibe about Steward? Just reminds me of a young, raw, undeveloped version. Let’s hope things come on well.
Bang on
Looks the most natural in that position. Some growing room but needs time in a first XV. with experience in front of him.

Re: Tigers vs Quins - 04 Oct 20 15:00

being cynical----
The only team we haven't put out against a team since restart is Loughborough Womens.
At least they'd make a game of it.
Might also learn how to work to a game plan.

Re: Tigers vs Bristol

I thought I was watching Prem football till someone ran with the ball in hand. SB has shown us the Tigers DNA - Kick to the most dangerous full backs in the opposition line ,set your defence and miss tackle to allow them on to your own 22, We are promised a return to the top with a new DNA and playe...

Re: International call up chaos

I'd have thought that recruitment allows for distractions for international callups.
The pinnacle of all players is to represent their respective countries and Tigers has embraced this ethos.

My question would be - At present do we have depth of quality to mitigate these distractions.

Re: Tigers vs Bristol

Judging by this restart of the season, I believe SB will have an idea what squad he has. Question - After these last two games - Are there expected outgoings. Will we see incommings. Is the plan taking shape. Are we setting down the DNA. How much into the next season are we going to keep making excu...

Sanderson has been quiet though.
Whilst there's a break in play, Can we quickly go over and get a comment.

Re: Tigers vs Bristol

Lets be honest - we've made it easy for the Sirs by giving silly penalties away.
Although last weekend was poor my the Sirs. Did the inflated number supporters have the sway along with two french lines persons and TMO.?

Lets compete but use our heads.And Sirs please martial the offside rule.

Re: Tigers vs Bristol

Do you really think Mr Lam will be looking for a dead rubber against Tigers, even with a Second choice team. "We go out to win every game"(SB) So I expect to see a strong second choice team ourselves. Pride is all we have for the next couple of games so lets leave it all out there on the field. We h...

Re: Toulon v Tigers - Challenge Cup Semi

We are better than that.

SB lessons to learn
!) who is the 1st XV
2) individual performances need to improve
3)If you are serious about competition and earning the Jersey then some need to be dropped to keep forward momentum.
