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!

Re: The Fall of Ben Youngs

I make no apologies for the title of this thread which seems to have upset many people! What else would you call the decline of a player with the ability of Ben Youngs? Instead of kicking on he has not only fallen behind players on the world scene but also the domestic scene as I have listed in the ...

Ian Evans

I see Ian Evans got his just desserts against Leinster for stamping - a red card. Clearly a serial stamper as its was he who cynically stamped on Harry Ellis and effectively curtailed his career- he was never the same after coming back from that injury.

The Fall of Ben Youngs

I don't think I have seen such a dip in form as I have witnessed this season from Ben Youngs. I can only think of 20 mins when he has looked the class player that we know he is. That was the last 20 mins in the Montpellier away game when his speed to the break down, distribution and awareness were s...

Re: Thomas the Tank

It will be a shame, he has done a great job for us but we are in need of a top no 8 now and that really must be a priority. Crane is a good back up but should certianly not be first choice.

Re: Tigers use of the bench

I thought use of the bench against Sale was poor. Apart from Bowden's enforced change with Matt Smith coming on I think the only other change was Lamb for Williams. This was despite Deacon limping around and missing the Gaskell tackle which then led to a Sale try. Also as was mentioned, I would have...

Re: Blaine Scully?

He was also warming up with the players before the Sale game which would indicate that things are positive on this front.

Re: Williams a better bet than Burns

Back to the point of the thread (fly-half as opposed to wingers) surely we have 3 fly-halves when Flood leaves, Williams, Lamb and Bowden. Personally I feel that we are covered here but there are big gaps elsewhere. If,as been mentioned elsewhere, TTT is moving on we desperately need a quality No 8....

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

One name of not heard mentioned but IMHO is superb know he has is head sorted is Cipriani if Flood goes.

He has buckled down, is only 26 and has bags of talent - Tigers would be a superb environment for him.

Tigers Restarts

I have to say that our restarts are really poor with Saturday being another example. We never vary them except when Flood tried something which didn't make the 10m line. We kick long with no height which gives the opposition time to clear their lines under no pressure. Every time Saints restarted My...

Re: Man of the Match

I thought that Kitchener pushed hard for MOTM as well. Saving a try and then scoring as wel as some great tasckling and a lineout steel when our lineout was not functioning is not a bad return!

Re: Rugby blogs to read before the final

I have to say that if you are looking for a balnced rugby blog(not just Tigers) then Rucked Over is the best I have come across. http://ruckedover.blogspot.co.uk/
