Re: Referees

What a strange world we live in, a top class ref like Doyle is given his P45 and the raft of incompetent clowns who do not seem to know the laws let alone apply them are kept in employment. My only hope is that most of the premiership ref's pay is linked to performance pay, so it is cheaper to keep ...

Re: Annoyance over forward passes

Re the forward passes in the Bath game, it would be good to know if the ref and TMO not even seeming considering them was due to a. personal preference of the officials to re-interpret the laws of the game. b. as a result of another of these unhelpful guidances given to speed up the game. c. incompe...

Re: BT Sport Coverage of Quins vs Sale .... Why Oh Why ?

Simon P raises a fair point, I do not mean the subject matter, I wish sports programs would just stick to the sport, after all there was a lot of rugby subject matter to be covered, if BT wanted to they could have put a trailer to a separate item covering BLM, NHS or whatever, I think this is really...

Re: Puzzled - Saracens!

This is precisely where I smell a great big rat. Their books SHOULD have been examined, in order to to find the whole truth, one way or the other. The stench will never be completely eradicated. :smt018 :smt018 What do you think would have been found in the 'books'? A line marked 'cash withdrawal' ...

Re: Kyle Eastmond

A good big un will nearly always beat a good little un, I think Kyle is unfortunate that against top class defences he does not have the physique to prosper, he always looked a very capable player but size was against him as he knew he would not win many collisions, so the defence could stand off an...

Re: J. MAY ESQ.

A superb player, one of the few in the Tigers team who's form did not drop off when returning to club rugby after international duty, he will be missed but we move on and follow the Sale and Exeter model with fewer international disruptions to deal with.

Re: Puzzled - Saracens!

Ok I agree the first time round was a farce. However, the second time a slap on the wrist? They got fined more than £5m and relegated. As a result of relegation they've lost a number of key players and will have lost considerable funding from TV, attendances and competition earnings both domestical...

Re: Puzzled - Saracens!

This sorry saga goes back to the previous sweep it under the carpet decision when the breaches were first found, not dealing with it robustly then allowed even more cheating. Again the clubs have failed to clean the stables, allowing Sarries to accept a slap on the wrist without finding how far and ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Manu Tuilagi is coming across as a bit of a diva, Tigers have stood by him during his injury, legal and immigration status problems, this was no act of charity, but a calculation that he was worth the trouble and cost but his benefit to the team over the past few seasons has been very limited. Now w...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

I am disappointed in the conduct of some of the players or their agents (family) but we should bear in mind the old saying never meet your hero's. Modern media perhaps brings us too close so we can see the people behind the image, it is not always a pretty sight. Being a great rugby player does not ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Sadly the clubs relationship with the Tuilagi brothers has always been one of mutual self interest not loyalty, we allowed the best of the brothers Alesana to leave when he was offered a better deal, the same with the other brothers, so thank you Manu and best wishes for the future, his contribution...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

In all this talk of contacts, no one has pointed out that most contacts have a Force Majeure clause, I would assume Tigers will have activated this clause in all the players contracts that is how they can legally change the terms otherwise they are just whistling in the wind. Tigers would have a ver...
