Does he have a personality?
Far more than most players of any sport that get interviewed
I personally think he is a good guy, I have watched and listened to his interviews and think he comes over well, I am always extremely happy if he is not playing when Wales play England

Re: Alun Wyn Jones named as Sports Personality 2019 contender

Interesting, very much divides opinion. Not a fans favourite unless you’re Welsh, but the pundits all rave about him. Not flashy, but old school player who does the basics well I agree with all you say, I rate him, but SPOTY? or is it just because he is probably retiring from international rugby at...

Re: European Challenge Cup - Cardiff vs Tigers

My opinion is yes, some changes but not wholesale. Keep the bulk of the team that started against Pau and integrate/bring in some others, such as Taute and Genge, who need game time, but keep it sufficiently minimal to retain the game plan However, keep in mind resting players after Saints for the ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I have a genuine question here, if they are in breach of salary cap, then they go on and play all the players who were making them break the cap aren't they then again breaching it? does it mean they will have to start to get rid of s load of players? if today as expected they accept the punishment,...

Re: Borthwick

An official review of the 2019 tournament will finish tomorrow or on Friday. At that point, Jones will establish a new-look back-room team. Defence coach John Mitchell, also with the Barbarians this week, is expected to remain as one of Jones’s chief lieutenants but scrum coach Neal Hatley has join...

Re: London Irish vs Tigers

Also, how many minutes action did they get? It's a marathon not a sprint, we need our boys for the season as a whole. Get them back, get them good and hopefully reap the rewards. They got a losing bonus point, we don't even know what a bonus point is, let alone have any Exeter aiming for the title ...

Re: BT reckons Relegation...

Much has been said already. Players to come back from WC duty and injury, more integration of new players (we have had alot of squad churn this srason) and the prospect of a strengthened coaching set up. Plus it is early doors. I had Gloucester to win today but they were nowhere (unfortunately). Pe...

Re: Will anyone want to buy the club??

I've heard many rumours that offers have been placed with the club but been rejected as not meeting the price PT wants. I heard KP were willing to pay the £60m but were told not at that price. No one with any salt will want to buy the club at that price with the performances heading towards the Cha...

Re: Tigers v Pau Saturday Nov 16th

Sorry but Pau is massive. Win, win,win. All games matter. If anyone thinks they don’t then Tigers will never turn things round. No use turning up at Saints on a losing run. Wins build confidence and confidence builds wins, we cannot afford to go into ANY game this season half hearted or with a weak...

Re: Good Players Made To Look (Less Than) Ordinary

Geordan Murphy: “When you start as badly as that, it is tough to get back in, especially with their defence playing so well. Their physicality was good, they slowed our ball well and they also scored from some of our mistakes.” ...not according to Bristol who were 17-0 down at half time against a s...

Re: London Irish vs Tigers

If Steve Borthwick is coming we need to know now to give us hope, if he is it also needs to be quick, as the WC is over and we haven't heard any more I am now doubting he will be coming....but we live in hope, we need something done one way or another, why wasn't at least Baby Rhino not on the team...

Re: London Irish vs Tigers

GM Quote - “We gave away too many penalties, and a bit of back-chat, that is unacceptable. Maybe it is frustration but I cannot defend that.” Did Mr GM get sent to the stands towards the end of last season? Something to do with comments made to the ref? :smt018 Sorry if i got that wrong...

Re: London Irish vs Tigers

I have to say with the exception of Jordan Taufua I am pretty underwhelmed, I can't see us wining away, we need the new SA back fits, TV is also a huge loss :( And many people were whingeing an wailing that we were going to get thrashed last week as well...... I totally agree I was one who thought ...
