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...

Re: I am really disappointed in the club

Oh my! what a narrow minded lot there is on here now, I am glad the contributors are not representative of the majority of the Tigers fans, shame on some of you and shame on the club for refusing, other clubs have managed to find the time and recourses to contribute good for them, they show Tigers u...

Re: Scrum formation

I do not know if there is a law on the formation of the scrum, I do remember the hand of back incident was only possible because Back had moved up the scrum to help Garforth who was being illegally turned in by the Claw, being in a position to rob the ball was a happy by-product, so in that scrum we...

Re: Belgium v Spain

Having seen the highlights, the ref gave the appearance of being even more one eyed than Steve Lander, I hope it was pure incompetence not bias, the result should not stand and the IRB should investigate the appointment of the officials, at the same time sanctioning the whole Spanish squad. This epi...

Re: A nice article about Harry Ellis

A top player for Tigers, badly let down by being played when seriously injured, when rest and good treatment may have prolonged his career.

Re: Ryan Wilson gets off?

There is absolute consistency, Celtic league players innocent or lesser sentences despite the evidence, English or French players guilty with hefty sentences even if there is no evidence. Remember Cozza being banned after Julian White had been accused, when they realised it could not possibly have ...
