Re: Toulon v Tigers - Challenge Cup Semi

Statement of intent. Play the game in front of you. The Prem season is over for us. Europe is a target for silverware. On paper you'd go with a W for Toulon. However with the side picked for Tigers and the intensity we have found recently??????? Lets face it, Scarlets lost the game rather than Toulo...

Re: QF cancelled - Castres forfeit match!

As a sportsman I'd have preferred to have progressed or failed by my own efforts.
But if competitors don't turn up,get injured or are disqualified you get a buy. First one on me - COVID 19 fail.
Are well into the bear pit..............
Plus - another week to prepare.........

Re: Tigers vs Castres - 20 Sep 20 at 1500

One thing i hope they are prepared for, Kockott will try to get someone sent off, either through niggle getting a response or pretending to be hit. Not one of my favourites :smt013 +1! Please don't take his dummy (pacifier) away. Great to see our strongest team as yet. Statement of intent. :smt030 ...

Re: Brian Moore - Telegraph 14 Sep 2020

I rate Brian Moore. Talks sense. No nonsense player. No nonsense pundit. To be honest its only when you look inwards the problems become insurmountable. I am under no illusion Mr Borthwick knows the challenge. He has stated " 2-3 seasons to get back to where we need to be". Its every other b---ger t...

Re: Team vs Saints

Love all the positivity. Love the W. Love the bragging rites. The team is building nicely. We have players who deserve the Tiger. However we tried really hard to loose that game towards the end of the last quarter. We have to get the confidence to see a game out, Play in the right area and not give ...

Re: A new defence coach?

The triumvirate of Murphy, Borthwick and McGinity are key to future success. Triumvirates worked for the Romans until the backstabbing ( quite literally ) started. It appears some posters have already got the Knives out. I am willing to keep mine sheathed until we are half way through a domestic sea...

Re: Team vs Saints

All depends which Saints team turn up. The one that wants to get bragging rights or the one who appears to be at odds with their incumbent coach. I feel that not everything is right the other (wrong end )Welford Rd. May just be me.....Now I've said it..the former will turn up. I'm hoping that everyo...

Re: Zack Henry

He has certainly made an impression and deserves starting jersey. He is not on his own. Its great to see the incumbents all pushing for jerseys making 1st XV selection a hard decision for all the right reasons. I think we new what we'd get from Nadolo so Henry has impressed because, to me, he was an...

Re: A new defence coach?

Youth and inexperience against a well drilled team. gaps will happen. Doesn't matter how much effort you put in in training. A settled team with experience and a spattering of youth can make it look easy. SB worked with MF. the defence had been quite good. The defensive line pushes up as one and has...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Tigers have fielded teams with mixed experience. Partnerships/pairings and differing roles. I have to congratulate the learning experience. The coaches will be in a better position, because of this time, going forward. Yes It does nothing for youngsters mindest to get a mauling. In recent game we ha...

Re: Cards and punishment

Card em both Simples Whilst I do understand tempers brew out of frustration and ill discipline. Whilst we are worried about head injuries and player welfare the easiest bi lateral way of dealing with it is both/all parties treated equally. No ambiguity or mitigation. Then neither team gets a disadva...

Honestly all I care about this season is the spirit and "fight in the dog"! Add to that team bonding and the musketeer"All for one...." Do results really matter this season? I have sen these signs.I have seen the performance rate increase. I have seen a defensive effort. I have seen players honestly...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

Youngs box kick is now boring and predictable. Too far for a chase.The opposition read it and for me Care has overtaken Ben as England's 9 as he mixes the game better. White has to mix his game to take cement his position. Job done.... Whilst I agree with the comments about the predictable box kick...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

I think J Taute needs a game or two in the squad as he needs to up his game to cement 1st team selection.
He appears to be off the pace in the Prem.
If we are selecting on merit for the biggers games to "earn the stripes" then he needs the game time.
Otherwise I'd go with posts selections.

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

I'm a little bemused. Ford's kicking out of hand down field was a poor tactic against a well drilled back line. All it does is come back. If field position was the tactic surely drill it into touch. Rely on our set piece to disrupt. If the tactic was to turn a heavy pack, surely a little grubber eve...
