Re: BBC Sport Website preview of our match v Glasgow

Yes - it took them a while though!

Someone clearly doesn't check what they are writing before they submit. Something that would never happen on this Forum :smt043

Tigers Accounts - 2015/16

Any thoughts on the release of the club's accounts for 2015/16 earlier today? "Turnover of the club in this period was £19.0 million (£20.2 million in 2015) as the business recorded an operating loss of £424,000 (£479,000 profit in the previous year)." A £1.2m drop in turnover and a subsequent opera...

BBC Sport Website preview of our match v Glasgow

Some numpty at the BBC Sport department needs to have the website proof read before hitting submit. I quote "Ed Slater returns from an ankle injury to join the squad and Freddie Burns is also fit, while James Haskell, Jack Clifford and Sam Jones are out injured." http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-uni...

Re: Breaking news: Tigers and Hansen part company.

Well, I didn't see that coming. I know we have given too many points away this season so far and our defensive has been shown wanting, but this is quick and decisive. Our attack and point scoring, which has been improving, counts for the square root of not a lot if we are giving so many points away....

Re: Kit Watch

We took the replica shirt bought for my son 2 weeks earlier back on Saturday and swapped it for a Classic. The replica appeared to have "graze" marks on it and a couple of pin holes. Also, the seams, when pulled very very slightly showed the stitching, overall not great quality and looks like it wou...

Re: Kit Watch

What's happened to the Classic shirts? They were showing on the Shop web pages as "pre-order" earlier this week, but this morning, no trace whatsoever? I was hoping to exchange the replica one I bought my son at the weekend for one as the quality of the replica is a bit pants. Worn once and showing ...

Re: SACK EVERYONE - HEADS MUST ROLL

If anyone should be sacked it should NOT be the coaches. They coach the team to play good rugby, complete passes, not infringe, ground the ball over the try line, kick penalties and conversions. But when the whistle blows, it's the players on the pitch who are in control of what they do. They are th...

Re: Mid table mediocrity

As I understand it, Bai is off at the end of the season. He planned to do 2 years here, fill a piggy bank and then head to Fiji to buy/run a farm.

Re: Can we please see our own salary cap announcement like t

Ah - the contract of marriage. Surely that only lasts 16 years; four better, four worse, four richer and four poorer. People who last beyond this have succeeded in working things out beyond the bounds of a contract.

Re: New Wasps Kit

Yes - I saw this earlier on Twitter. A simple but effective kit. Whilst our new kits look OK, I, like many on here, would have prefered a red, green and white hoop design, with solid colour hoops, as our home kit and mainly white with red and green contrasting collar, cuffs etc for the away/alternat...

Re: And there she was gone....

So, with no Captain's Bar, the big question is... Where will John Griffiths set up table for the Away Supporters club business?

Any thoughts JohntheGriff?

Re: Fixture changes for this season's play-offs and Final

....however, I feel that teams that have had the break between semi and final will be more rested and potentially not carrying niggles into the final. Given that the last 2 seasons have started the same time, something has slipped somewhere to get rid of the week break/gap between semi and final.

Fixture changes for this season's play-offs and Final

In previous seasons, I recall there being a week break between the semi-final and the final, where they slotted in the European Final(s). i.e. 2013/14 season the play-off semis were played on 16 and 17 May and the Final on 31 May. This season there is no break, we go straight from beating Bath on Sa...

Re: Perspective

Good post MerseyTiger. Agree - even in the so called good old days, we still lost a few matches and it wasn't all plain sailing. Going away to Bath, Glos, Quins and Saints have not been easy trips for many years. (I'll be up on the Wirral on Saturday to visit my mum - I still miss the place, but wor...
