Re: Tigers v Chiefs

What a half! Great defence and spirit shown from Tigers all showing up in defence. I think Exeter having two bludgeners in the centres suits Tigers.

Still have Exeter favourites to win but happy with that half.

Re: Tigers v Chiefs

Impressive defensive set there. This game will really test the teams fitness.

Re: Tigers v Chiefs

Same back row again that didn’t really work against Irish, interesting. Can tell Borthwick went to the Eddie Jones school of coaching (and that’s by no means a bad thing).

Glad Simmons gets a chance on the wing I think he’s looked good in the few chances he’s got.

Re: London Irish Away

Let’s grow up lads and not blame the ref for a poor 30 mins Hear hear! The ref isn’t the reason we are losing but he’s certainly helping. Frustrating first half in every respect. Get JT on for Brink and Leatigaga on for Bower Dickson is hot on the whistle but is not why we are losing. Agree on the ...

Anyone see the Ireland - Georgia game? If so, how did Mamu go?

Re: Is Genge in trouble

Wasn’t it Andy Goode who started all this whose job it is to be a pot stirrer? Pretty sure he’s had some disagreements with Genge recently as well.

I read that Hardwick is considered a 12 at the club, so this might just be paper talk and he will stay and fight for that shirt rather than the 10
Pretty sure I heard Hardwick say this himself in an interview - think on Radio Leicester during the lockdown but can’t remember exactly.

Re: Autumn Nations Cup

Whinging Wales again 😀 It's in the SH psyche to whinge, not just Wales. Gatland carried them onward even as rugby in Wales faltered. It's dying now, and the decades of complacent neglect by the WRU are coming home to roost. Truly heartbreaking - look at all the great clubs on the brink or gone. :sm...

might be a symptom of our first choice 10 being an issue when it comes to the number 12 shirt.
What do you mean by that? Is it that we need a 12 whose a good defender? Though I literally can’t think of a decent 12 who isn’t great in defence.

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

I agree that Hogg Gray Richie Russell are likely to be the only Scots to go and possibly not even all of them given Gatlands blind spot for anyone not welsh even when they are clearly better. However the one guy I would add to that list if he’s fit is Sutherland. The Scottish scrum looks very destr...

Re: England's Worst 15

Jamie Noon is in the category for me of very good club players who played a decent amount of international rugby because England lacked truly international class players at the time but definitely not in a ‘Worst 15’. The current Jamie Noon equivalent would be like Mark Atkinson who is a decent play...

Re: London Irish Away

Decent slide there and very good bench. Interesting that Borthwick has gone with a heavy duty back row which is very much against trend at the moment. May be an Eddie Jones horses for courses approach (to be honest I’m not too aware of Irish’s playing style) or how ideally he wants his pack to look ...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

Can someone clarity the law for me? That pass from Cipriani for their try seemed to go well forward to me, but it was never checked. It was touched by one our players on its way (after it seemed to go forward) so does that mean it can’t be considered a forward pass? Rules wise you can have a forwar...

Re: GP Round 1 thread

I thought Bath would beat Newcastle by a lot and at the moment looks like the Bath players thought the same. Going for too many 50-50 offloads, still expect them to pull away in last 20.

Re: Club Statement - COVID-19

Premiership Rugby will no longer automatically award five points to teams when the opposition is unable to field a side because of coronavirus. League bosses confirmed a four-point win will be awarded to the club able to name a side, with two points to the team forced to cancel. Looks like cancelli...
