The mysterious selection of Paul Burke for the first game against Munster, where his missed kicks and odd game-calling left us a mountian to climb in the second half, was probably the biggest mistake of Leicester's HEC campaign so far. I would hope that it is not to be repeated in the return fixture...

And he has been improving consistently since he broke into the side. Regarding the Bristol lineup - it's virtually second...

England may well have an openside of the quality of Jennings to complement Moody - the problem is that with AR refusing to drop him from the 7 shirt, we never got the chance to find out. Sanderson played a single match at 7 (during a season when he has been playing 6 for his club, funnily enough) an...

Pez has always been a front-foot player. Had Leicester been more dominant up front with him in the side, his running game would have been a real winner. Sadly, his Tigers career largely coincided with the World Cup, when Leicester had 8 forwards missing. As such, he played a lot of rugby on the back...

I came on just now to specifically thank you guys at Tigers for the new video clip service. Just seen it - just appreciating the tries again. I used to have a couple of tries downloaded from sources like youtube, but this is a much better service. Any other tries you can dig up would also be appreci...

Yes... to lightweight a second row. Gillies shouldn't be there. He's a fantastic lineout forward, but offers little else round the pitch compared to equally effective lineout operators like Nick Kennedy and (especially) Chris Jones. Ward-Smith is massive, however, and Forrester has bulked up by a st...

thats a ... bonus point [lost] because of indiscipline Not really. Even with 15 men Leicester never looked like scoring a try in the second half. They didn't have the opportunities. There was nothing to suggest that had Leicester been disciplined and kept a full complement of players, then they wou...

As Will Greenwood said in the commentary maybe we should have deliberatly let them score, we would have at least been able to get in their half from the kick-off. But it seemed all the team were intent on was not conceding a try... Well, in cas eyou hadn't noticed, they did concede a try. And Bourg...

Now, I’ve looked at that several times and come to the same conclusion each time. He’s ridiculously fast! Obvious conclusion, you may think, but having timed the run, he’s even faster than I thought. He’s got a running start, granted, but he travels from his 5m line to the back of the opposition in-...

<<They aren't "shipped straight back to their club". Sale chose to take them back asap for attention. >>

I'm not surprised. The last time Sheridan was injured playing for England, they didn't inform the club, picked him for the next match, and put him out of action for months.

Is this selection in deference to our 'Irish' visitors?

Hickie, Cullen, Jennings, F.Murphy and Humphreys starting, with J.Murphy on the bench.

33% of the starting lineup are Irish!

It has to be said that aside from the comment in one paper that Dayglo would be back in the side, the media bandwaggoning has been considerably less from Lol than it was for the 6N. I wonder why...?
