Re: PRC Round 1 - Warriors vs Tigers

I will, as I have for over 40 years support Tigers home and away through thick and thin. Tigers do need time to rebuild but, in my opinion, putting teams out that are likely to get a drubbing does nothing at all to improve the confidence of anyone playing or coaching. One of the things admitted in ...

Re: England team v Tonga

All Tigers’ starters excellent but Genge needs Boris to continue working on his scrummaging: he brought good “go forward “ in the loose. Cole his usual, dependable self. Just hope all our players stay injury free. Thought Kalamafoni showed what an excellent 6 he is. Best moment for me, Fordy tackle...

Re: PRC Round 1 - Warriors vs Tigers

Worcester don't look that strong, I reckon Waller couldn't push my Grannies zimmer frame and 5 couldn't carry a water bottle in the Sahara without losing it! Pretty much every name in the Tigers list is talked about as potential 1st team, they'll be up against much stronger in the Premiership so it'...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Whether the rules are outdated or not, if the rule is in place then Sarries have broken it. If they are genuinely helping players prepare for their future after rugby, they could employee people to help give advice to these players who already earn enough money to make sure they can secure a health...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

I'm no doubt going to upset a few here and I make no apology for my opinion, but trying put any dispute over rules aside for a moment I think that helping employees is a good thing just as long as that help is given to all and not just a select expensive few. I do believe that many clubs assist wit...

Re: Premiership Sevens

I personally wouldn't judge anyone from sevens nowadays. It used to be better with more brains on show but pace and fitness have massively taken over. It is so loose that you can do stuff that some of those same players just couldn't perform with no time and space in the fifteen a side game. There w...

What has Tony Blair got to do with it???
IT was just a personal thing.
I've seen far stranger and more offensive things than pull ups accepted in Portugal, Blair being one of them.

Re: Youngs injured in pub brawl

Was in Vilamoura today. No sign of any badly behaved rugby players. Strange that they find a bloke doing a few pull ups in a bar offensive and yet it's fine for some porker in budgie smugglers to do push ups right in front of you on the beach when there are miles of sand unoccupied. It's one of Ton...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

The backs (Toomua etc) are a moot point until the ball carrying improves, the 9 apart who is a key player for any pack of forwards. I've got nothing against backs but the forwards is where it's really at, forwards win games and backs determine by how much. The way the game is set up nowadays (laws/i...

Re: Youngs injured in pub brawl

Just proves that Murphy has no control over the players and it's very clear they have no respect for him. As I've said in previous post there is a group of senior players who run the club. A sorry state. So you think this shows Murphy has no control of the players who were on a night off from train...

Re: Youngs injured in pub brawl

It's just steam. See the Murphy bashers are giving their wings a rest, can't shout and fly at the same time. Reads between the lines to me that security didn't want to get too close and it was likely little more than cheap pot shots on the peace makers. Particularly lucky for the Ronaldo's that Lava...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

Playing at Colorno will give him gametime and being linked to the Tigers the door is ajar for a return either because of form or injury. Some common sense from you two rather than the obvious personal agenda from others. It would seem that others who have been quite average are allowed to develop a...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

There is nothing in the article to suggest that Fred is on loan but I think Fred is possibly a late developer needing regular game time. I believe that it is very possible that in a couple of years young Fred will be a much improved player at eight and could well be of Premiership standard. Whether...

Re: Premiership table 2019/20

3. Saracens I'm not going to predict it, but I wouldn't be surprised if England were to have a good world cup that Sarries struggle in the league. They've got a great team ethic but it's how do you get them back up again after a successful world cup campaign to go again in the league. Have you seen...
