Re: A fair analysis?

The fall began when we were winning and many on here said it was boring and we want more excitement, the board must have thought so to, so they said lets not focus all our spending on forwards but on some shiny new go faster backs! As always be careful what you wish for. Mauger was not a mistake as ...

Re: England squad

I am totaly underwhelmed by the squad, too many average players filling up space, I fear more dross to follow last years shambles, is Eddie Jones the Jose Mourinho of Rugby, a two season wonder?

Re: How long are we supposed to put up with our diabolical lineout?

The first job of the coaches is to identify where the weakness is, it sounds obvious but I cannot tell if it is the call, the throw, the timing of the jump, the protection of the jumpers or the lifters but they need identify why we are weak. Tom Young’s may be the problem if so drop him, if not keep...

Re: How to Keep Manu at Tigers

Given the figures banded about for other players, Cole should be on a million quid PA at least, toughest possition on the park plays more minutes than most front rowers, and is one truly world class players we have, IMHO!!

Re: Spencer banned for four weeks

Interesting to see that Veainu isn't playing this week after failing an HIA. I wonder if players kicking the ball which hits someone's head will get punished with a red card? It seems more damage has been done from the kicked ball hitting Veainu than Spencer's tackle on Taylor. Good point, I am sur...

Re: Spencer banned for four weeks

The process is itself bringing the game into disrepute, Spencer pleaded not guilty to recklessly making contact with the head of an opponent, he did not deny the contact with the head but the charge was that he did it recklessly, for making this argument he got an extra weeks ban, there should be cl...

Re: Anglo no more Welsh Cup

Yet more disincentive to sign English qualified players! They should have made it a true development comp, limit players from the regular first team to those returning from injury, i.e those who have not played for 6 weeks, make it a minimum of 80%+ English qualified players and 60% academy players...

Re: Honest Assessment- Problems are above MOC.

Newcastle manage to juggle under the salary cap and build a good squad. The thing they have is clear vision about how they are going to play, also the clear message from Richards that he will not sign England squad players as they are too expensive and break up squad continuity, this is something fo...

Re: Goneva

I remain very underwhemed by Ford, it may be the coaching, the system or the personel but he has not bossed the possition as he should, he does not impose himself on the game but is a passenger to events, BY has also been poo(r) all season, intent on boxkicking hard earned ball back to the oppositio...

Re: Honest Assessment- Problems are above MOC.

Retaining good players seems a very difficult task for our club, maybe they should think, if a player is worth 50k a year more to a poor club like Newcastle he must be worth that and more! letting Goneva go was a crass mistake, as will letting Mulipola go. The deal regarding Slater shows the BOD hav...
