Re: "A" team

21-52 home defeat does not bode well. That's an aggregate score of the 2 senior teams of 21-97! Many other comments about lack of direction at coaching level in other threads. Given that the A squad again consisted of mostly academy players and trialists how do you associate this performance with a...

Re: The game has moved on

Unfortunately Saturdays result has been coming, I have been saying this for a while. Saracens last season was a warning. I honestly believe that we have a playing squad that stands up in quality to any of the top sides, what we lack is the coaching. It is criminal that, with the backs we have, our b...

Re: Tigers Coaching

I know that most of the threads have been taken up with tackling (defence) which we will get sorted with Phil Blake but not much comment on attack except from iceman. Daryl Gibson is a Tigers man and has been instrumental in transforming the Waratahs attack to be the most potent in Super Rugby. Come...

Tigers Coaching

In todays Leicester Mercury Cockers says that defence has to be tightened and, of course, they have done something about that be recruiting Phil Blake from down under. A great move which will bring new thinking in which is something that was lacking last season. IMHO, that should not stop there - Pa...

Re: Manu to start on the wing ?

What a waste Lancaster! As most of us thought, except the England selectors and so called rugby hacks, Manu has been totally wasted on the wing. How the ABs must have heaved a sigh of relief when they found out! he has not been involved in the game and the midfield has looked rudderless.

Steve Mafi?

Aplogies for this if has been covered elsewhere (I couldn't find anything) but, as of 17th April, what is the situation concerning Steve Mafi?
In all the recent updates on injuries and players coming back into contention there has been no mention. Has is contract been terminated?

Re: Newcastle v Tigers

Now that looks a good line up. great to see Bowden and Manu paring up. I thought Bowden was superb last week and his dummies will certainly give Manu the space.

What has happened to Graham Kitchener? I know he limped off against Goucs but not heard anything since.

Re: The Fall of Ben Youngs

Good to read the honest assessment. I would agree that last week was a step in the right direction. If we can start seeing the zip for 80 mins he had for the last 20 mins of the Montpellier away game we will know he is back.

Re: Are the Tigers Board dumbing down.............????????

As has been said before, IMHO it is not the players. We have virtually the same squad as last season when we started some good rugby from Jan onwards. The big issue this the coaching staff - absolutely no new thinking and no creativity at all. I cannot believe that a coaching staff of: Cockers,Burke...

Re: Good win for Academy v Quins today!

Great win. Clearly coached better than the seniors, I suggest that we move the coaches up now that the U-18 have won the silverware!
