Re: London Irish vs Tigers

Well it looks like Mari and the rest of the cavalry are going to play against Tigers! A huge performance will be needed to get anything out of this game. Good luck Tigers. Seems an awful lot of new blood to integrate back into the team at one go which may prove counterproductive. We have seen befor...

They did not turn up at the Principality Stadium for the official launch of the Champions Cup, (although they notified the organisers beforehand).

Fine of up to £50,000 could be levied.
That's another Wray of sunshine for them isn't it? :smt005

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

My understanding is that the reason Tigers made no statement was a perfectly honourable one. My understanding also. If I recall rightly the clubs were supposed to have agreed that the matter was being settled behind closed doors and there would be nothing released into the public domain. Some clubs...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Sarries' defence according to the finding was ludicrous, essentially that they did break the salary cap but that the cap itself is unfair because it's a restraint on their trade. Why they're appealing I don't know, 35 points and a bit of Nigel's pocket money for three years of unfair competition is...

Could be worse. Probably.
True. We could have got Craig Maxwell Keyes or Ian Tempest.

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

Surely the most impact of this will be if the 35 point deduction was to cause them to be relegated? Given that their England players will miss games post world cup and during the 6 Nations they would only have to suffer a few unexpected defeats for this to be a possibility. I can't see all their big...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester

what was really pleasing though was how well we did in that defensive set, under a lot of pressure. Remarkable step up from last season. As for the comments on the ref - it was thanks to his incompetence that we got that final scrum - should have gone the other way to be fair - but we have been due...

Ah yes.... I'd forgotten he'd gone there. Maybe some hope then. If only he'd stayed here I doubt we'd have got into the mess we've had the last few seasons.

Re: Borthwick

I reckon Borthwick is being viewed as the next England Head Coach, and he is going to use Tigers as a stepping stone potentially for that. I can see Eddie staying till after the next RWC, Borthwick will have had 4 years experience as a Head Coach on top of his international Experience. It sounds li...

Re: London Irish vs Tigers

Hopefully we can carry on from this weekend and get a good result away from home. I liked the dynamic of having a strong bench against Gloucester so I would go with: Gigena Youngs (c) Leatigaga Wells Green Liebenberg Thompson Kalamafoni Harrison Hardwick Reid Viljoen Olowofela Veainu Holmes Bateman...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester

I've just scrolled back through some of the posts regarding the timing of Hardwick's final penalty. He was interviewed post match and he stated that the ref didn't tell him prior to the kick that there would be a restart. Secondly, and this was something I noticed too, when the respect for the kick...
