Re: Starting 15 for the Gloucester Game?

My advice for what it's worth. ...come on and talk about rugby and what you think about a match, the players,the opposition etc etc. Keep out of the long running sagas by certain people who seem to have little better to do with their time. Ignore the pedants and the oddballs and instead enjoy the g...

Re: Starting 15 for the Gloucester Game?

Matey, this forum is becoming LESS elitist. If you were around a few years ago you would've been savaged by one of two or three big beasts for even daring to contradict them. At one point it was a war between Bill Woodward and one or two others, with only a few visiting the forum. TBH the real nast...

Re: Starting 15 for the Gloucester Game?

You'll soon get used to it Chris. Some on here will argue the toss about anything in a most aggressive manner. The forum is becoming more elitist and puts many people off. Stick with it mate. Your opinion is just as good and valid as anyone else's. Thanks, Wardy. There there does seem to be a handf...

Re: Starting 15 for the Gloucester Game?

So you wish to try a different method to Spicer in order to mount another attempt to pervert and misrepresent what I posted, this time based upon your newly invented premise known as what "comes across to you". Well it comes across to me that you just wish to jump on the bandwagon in order to pick ...

Re: Starting 15 for the Gloucester Game?

It was like old times again, Tigers getting a bonus point win with the last play. Some very good performances from "second choice" players, especially Rizzo, Cilliers and Kitto, who I thought had his best game in a Tigers shirt. Another excellent game from Hamilton. Agreed - and although I think Ge...

Re: Starting 15 for the Gloucester Game?

I posted his box kicking is rubbish and I did not say he was rubbish. Glad to have the opportunity to correct your word blindness and committment to misquote me. You also claimed his service was slow and inaccurate, he can't pass from his left hand, he loses the ball in contact and he runs down bli...

Re: How good is Dan Cole?

I think he's definitely close to the top (not sure there's an absolutely nailed-on stand out No 1 TH at the moment). Certainly his technical scrummaging is high class - and, as others have noted here, he does stand out for his ability to last 80 mins when necessary. I also think his ball-carrying is...

Re: Manu out for season

Well said - I am not actually at all naïve and sentimental; it was Roly's choice of language that I find distasteful. Oh I know you're not and apologies if I came across that way! I was simply trying to tell Roly he was wrong without being gratuitously offensive! (Tough work but someone's got to do...

Re: Manu out for season

To be fair to Roly I believe that Croft, Smithy, Tait and possibly Manu will be gone, along with several other players - some longstanding, some 'projects', some 'retired' (i.e. don't want to play for anyone else). I am just hoping we haven't engineered the return of Ford in two years by laying was...

Re: Manu out for season

[/quote] There was indeed a time when, as Marx might have put it, the HR profession led the way in estranging people at work from their humanity. Anyone in business at a senior level in those less enlightened times should hang their head in shame at the mere mention of the term 'human resources'. (I...

Perhaps it's time to get rid of Roly, Chris?[/quote]

No, I don't think so - from what I've seen of this forum it's a generally civilised space, but it would be a little bland without the occasional misanthropic provocation!

Re: Manu out for season

Its time to get rid of Tuilagi. And Croft for that matter. I'd much prefer it if we were able to get rid of this callous manner of talking about people's careers. I've come across a few HR personnel in my time who have used this sort of language - I guess it goes with the territory in their line of...
