Re: Exeter Chiefs 21st December

Tigers confidence fell apart after the missed lineout on the Exeter 5 mtr line, it was like watching a punctured tyre, the team collectivly could be seen thinking oh no not again, the second missed throw a few minutes later just put the tin lid on it. Is the linout a symptom or a cause? I wish someo...

Re: Tom Youngs - lineouts

I do not understand but then I am not a coach, they should be able to put thier finger on it and resolve it but season after season it remains unresolved. I cannot tell if our shocking lineout is a symptom or a cause but it kills us most games and takes away any momentum and removes an option, we al...

Re: Trouble at mill - May to go?

It is not possible or adviseable for Tigers to retain current English players without a sugar daddy and or some creative accounting that is a plain fact Our current internationals are not benefiting the club, Ben Youngs is the prime but not only example, I would argue they are harming the club by ta...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I think if Saracens players stood down from England duty to save them from relegation, Newcastle would have something to say on the matter, their season imploded when Wilson was on England duty and they went down. Wray should face a charge of bringing the game into disrepute, I cannot remember a cle...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Shock horror players think unlimmited pay is the way forward, untill the club collapses under the weight of debts or the sugar daddy gets bored. I'll just chuck a couple of tweets in...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

I cannot absolve the players having a share of the blame from this, players at other clubs are commenting it was common currency in the changing rooms that it was considered impossible to build the Sarries sqad under the cap, so to say the Sarries players are inocent victims is streching credulity a...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Saracens a club built on deciet! Can we change the title of the thread? I think Saracens are Rugby Unions equivelent of Lance Armstrong and should be treated as such. Blatant cheating should be punished, for all the years it is shown to have gone on. Dean Richards was hung out to dry over a blood ca...

Re: Duty of care

It is a pointless match that no one wants to play in and few want to watch, any player who is seriously injured in this match will feel very aggrieved, I am just glad there are no Tigers players involved.

Re: Sam Harrison

I am sad to see him leave as he has given heart and soul to the club over recent seasons and been under-utilised IMHO, never first choice when an underperforming Youngs was available, which was always a mystery to me, ( I am a Youngs fan but he has had some shockers for Tigers) However good luck, Au...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Any breaking of the cap should negate the results for the season in question as they cheated to get the results, this is what happens in other sports, how many Tour de France's has Lance Armstrong to his name Zero because he was found guity of cheating to win them, the same should apply to Sarries i...

What qualifification is needed to be a TMO? I am left wondering after the, I dot, in the van for the England - Australia match saw no forward pass for the late Australia try!

Re: debate about high tackling

For me this is not about tackling it is about hits, which to me, have been confused. Tackling is getting the ball carrier down to ground using the arms, hits are knocking the player backward using anything available, more of the former and less of the second will return the game to normal players no...

Re: World Cup Refereeing

The commentators applauded the tackle on Vunipola, no mention of it being a shoulder charge with no arms so it is not just the refs who seem to be able to turn a blind eye

Re: Kiwi hypocrites strike again!

I have always thought that the oposition should just carry on with warm up drill etc and ignore the Haka, it has nothing to do with rugby and is just part of All Black brand recognition, AKA money!

Re: Leicester Tigers up for sale for £60 Million

As our friends across the pond will tell you, money talks, the question is who is it talking to? We have endured several seasons of mediocrity all in the name ''of balancing the books and building for a long term sustainable future'', what has changed? Will the money buy better training facilities? ...
