Re: Tigers v Quins

Agree with a lot of posts. Handling was truly dreadful. Does anyone know how often we knocked on? Far too often, I know.

Re: Tigers vs Racing

RE that tackle on Jonny May. Some of the Racing staff and players were sitting next to me and they admitted "We got away with that one. That should have been a red card."

Re: Like to have seen more of?

I too saw Tony O'Reilly play. A huge personality on and off the pitch. I was very young at the time so cant really remember that much about it.

Re: Team for London Irish

Too ill to make it to the match, so,I'm listening to the Radio Leicester commentary. Sounds horrendous. They've just described it as depressing. That sounds like an understatement.

Gaffney was on Look East tonight. He reckons Saints can make top four. Good luck with that one!

Re: Matt Hampson Foundation Update

Couldn't agree more about Matt deserving an honour. What he has done is immense and far, far more than many others who get a gong. Let's hope for a knighthood in the summer.

In the meantime, get well soon!

Re: Tigers v Munster

Interesting piece in today's Times about Manu's frequent injuries and the difficulties, particularly psychological, of rehab. I just hope he gets through tomorrow uninjured.

Murphy to Cardiff?

BBC reporting that Murphy is in talks with Cardiff Blues to take over.
Hope not. But it might be a good move for him.

Re: Matt O'Connor

still early days but I hope (believe?) that, come the end of the season, we will be able to pen one of those Private Eye type apologies.

very much enjoying our rugby now and am postponing a foreign trip to make sure I'm here for the end of May.

Re: Croft retires

wasn't just awesome in his pomp? simply awesome. Those you tube links just brought it all back

good luck in whatever you do in the future, Tom

Georgia v Canada try

Anyone else seen it? Full back for Georgia scores amazing try. It's on the BBC sport web site. Picks up the ball, kick ahead, runs like hell and he just gets there - and then kicks the conversion. Awesome.

Re: Tigers v Castres

Fabulous match. Where did that team come from? Wonderful, flowing rugby - well, for most of the match. Shame we let them get a TBP , but, hey, we were superb. Just got home to a glass of wine and perhaps some Remy later!

I'll do it for 10% of the take and a free parking space.
A real shame. It was so convenient.
