Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

We look like nearly men. Ford didn't kick well out of hand today. Ben Youngs same old. Lavanini trying too hard.Last seasons knock ons. Sold continually off side. Then we get near to a decent result to let them off the hook. With constant changes we look like were not reading from the same book or s...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

I do not like to think of players getting injuries, but I wonder if Sold are relying too much on XV. They do not have depth in squad which is ok until injuries and international calender kicks in. They are 2nd this year but it feels a bit like all eggs one basket. Tigers are building with depth of s...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

Sale are two teams.
One with the Faf
One without.
If we are going to compete we need to stop him getting the pack moving.
Manu who?????

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

That might be right. His reputation precedes him. His attitude is changing and with that Sirs will look elsewhere. I'm all for giving him a chance. He has only had one or two poorish games. His attitude against Glouc was better, He does the graft and a workhorse will always get the attention.D Cole ...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

Yep agree available Fist XV (ish) for Sale. Saints and Castre. Rotate for the Pests.
Then I believe that with the new additions we will be in a better position for 20/21.

Sorry SB ..........do your thing.....

Re: Best Tigers lineup (Since the Restart)

Yep loving what I see. And then there are other arrivals at the end of the season. OMG you can hear the panic setting in. With the teams selected(as above) is it not possible to bed in for a couple of games to build for Castre and maybee gain the points needed to raise us above Worc.Whilst still lea...

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

I thought we would have problems with our starting line up. We did. Against a strong Glouc team. SB made the change to get some direction and order into our game and it was. Lesson - we cannot solely rely on all the youngsters at this present time. I thought we fought back well and as others have st...

Re: Round 17 other games

I've got a big jar of new and old, nuts and bolts in my workshop and decided I needed to get on and sort them out in prep for some DIY. So I emptied the jar and started sorting. Its mind boggling what marries up and what I didn't know I had. I found I have more than enough to get more than a job don...

Re: Reversing the great schism. Is it an option now?

To paraphrase Emily Scarrett ( BT -sale/bristol) - The rules have always been there the ref's are now implementing them. OK she was referring to the breakdown.However we would't be having this discussion and debate every other week if the rules at scrum time were implemented. There would be no need ...

Re: Referees

Right I've had my lie down. I've read the posts and feel better with myself. To a point I stand by the point I make that, in the modern game, Refs have become too reliant on TMO. Yes they micro manage every nuance of play and allow the TMO to get involved.Especially for dangerous play. Yes I agree t...

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

As with Noah, the message was build the ark there's a flood coming. So he built the ark for the forthcoming storms. He didn't wait for the fist spots of rain before he put saw to wood, He gathered his beasts 2x2 BEFORE the flood. SB and the coaches are not Noah but are getting ready for the storm of...

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

Honestly - I don't give a rats.... if others are fielding their strongest team. Two ways of looking at it 1) they are showing our developing team/squad respect. 2) They are going for max points. We are developing - they have evolved and risk getting first team players injured prior to 20/21. I know ...

Re: Slowly but surely...

100% Agree with all. Tigers are starting to roar again and the claws are out. If we are not (as yet) getting the results teams already know they are in a scrap. They will not see us as an easy win. That in its self will be a 7 point lead. So the future is bright we are on the up.Now all we need is p...
