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...

Re: TMO question

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! Luckily it did not matter and that the ref saw it in real time and only had to glance at the screen to see it a yard forward ...

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? ...

Re: Geordie up before the beak...three week ban!

The real questions are, why poor refs who spoiled many a game allowed to move on to be TMO's and the combination of a known poor TMO with a known weak ref is allowed to occour. GM was wrong to voice his frustration but given all we have suffered from the officials this year I understand it, he will ...

Toomua, who was he? I have forgotten him already, along with a few others that have been wasting the space inside Tigers shirts this season!

Re: Toomua

The Toomua saga shows no one in a good light but let us not lay all the blame at his door, we have suffered for having our good players away with England and the loss of form or injury of a most of the rest. We have not had a settled squad the whole season, so we are doubly disadvantaged. Newcastle ...

Re: Relegation / How to avoid Relegation?

Captaincy now is the biggest issue, Tom Youngs is a special player and person but has not been a success as a captain and he is no longer a very good hooker. We need and all season have needed someone who is not afraid of getting in the ear of the ref and cuffing underperforming players, as TY is at...

Re: Cockerill - blame the hierarchy

I would be nice to know the personel and the process involved in getting rid of RC and appointing MOC.

There seems to be a total lack of accountabilty at the top of the club, that is not to say there is no ability or commitment just a lack of accountability and focus!

Re: Ben Youngs

Ben Youngs is half the player for Tigers than for England, IMHO That said I am proud he is a Tigers player and are lucky to have him on our books. The reasons he plays better (most of the time ) for England may be motivation, tactics, personel or just he is on a different training cycle to his tiger...

Re: ARE THERE ANY LAWS IN THE GAME THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE?

Only three really 1- Equip every ref with one of those electric shock dog training collars, each time the defending team is offside at a ruck the ref gets a jolt if he does not award the attacking team a penalty ( each team nominates a coach to press the jolt buton, but if replay shows they were wro...
