Re: Tigers v Racing 92

I'm looking forward to the game today with a statistically baseless optimism that we couldn't be any worse than against Glasgow. I'm keeping the faith (which of course is defined as belief without proof) :smt006 Good morning, Mr Happy! :smt026 I'll be ok just as long as it isn't as exciting as THAT...

Re: Does Cockers get the boot if we get smashed again this w

Might one have the temerity to suggest that a lot of opinion regarding protocols and organisational behaviour stated as fact by persons not actively engaged in management of premiership rugby clubs could potentially be of no value whatsoever.

Re: Tigers v Glasgow

We need coaching on how to win the breakdown. Specialist coaching for that arena. If we keep giving up the ball at the breakdown (turnovers, penalties etc) then we will be lucky to finish mid table in the prem and 4th in the euro.

Re: Tigers v Glasgow

The coaching team choose who get contracts. The coating team determines how the team plays making best use of the skills the players possess. They also provide the leadership and morale of the side. Players have to believe. Believe in what they are being asked to do, believe in who is asking them to...

Re: Tigers v Glasgow

Listened to RL. Im surprised Steve J didn't top himself. Midway through 2nd half I thanked the gods I didn't have BT.

Adam Thompstone

Anyone else think that Adam Thompstone has been one of our best signings? He is defensively dependable and skilful in finishing. Couple of really good try saving tackles again today against Wuss.

Re: I'm confused

Re: Do we have a defence coach?

If the defensive errors are frequent and attributable to individual player error then it would seem we have a mismatch of ambition and ability. That situation is not entirely attributable to the players. If they are unable accurately execute the strategy then surely the strategy is in error. Excell...

Re: England Training Squad- Mike Williams included-TY still

Talking of England, our DoR in the Grauniad tells the RFU what he thinks! Don't believe he'll be getting a Christmas card from Ian Ritchie! http://tinyurl.com/godh2qp Go Cockers! Wow. Though I understand others have been critical. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2016/sep/28/premiership-coaches-rf...

Re: IF Cockers were to go...

I don't see any reason why Cockers would leave but if it happened then Rob Baxter has the right club ethos. Couldn't see him leaving the Chiefs though
