I think Cozza's rubbish. And thats the end of it. Or to put it another way, he's one dimensional, slower, and less skilful than he was. But he is also powerful and a real talisman. Undoubtedly he is the past, but I still feel he has a part to play. Unfortunately though there is no way you can play C...

I have just waded through so much drivel my head is starting to ache, and it's nothing to do with last night's Japanese lager. Yesterday Tigers were pretty average, and I'll agree that Goodey had a bit of a stinker. What staggers me though is that people are already complaining about, and writing of...

If he is fit, play Laussucq at nine. I would go with:

1 Ayerza
2 Kayser
3 Castro
4 Deacon
5 Wentzel
6 Corry
7 Moody (Abraham if Lewis is out)
8 Crane
9 Laussucq
10 Goode
11 Varndell
12 Smith
13 Hipkiss
14 Tuilagi
15 G Murphy

Frank was too slow in getting the ball away form the breakdown giving Toulouse the time and players into the right positions. Ben was more aggressive at the breakdown but his passing (what on earth were those looping passes) was poor under pressure. With Harry not coming back until next season it c...

Fortunately their Kiwi was worse than ours....

I have a feeling it might be a few weeks before we see Aaron at his best, that's fine by me.

Good god! You must all be joking? Youngs was poor. He is a long way away from starting a game like that. Half way through the second half he forgot to pass and started chucking out horrific long pops. Not up to scratch at all - one good box to his credit. Frankie looked quick and dangerous until he ...

Mike Rayer did it quite famously in a cup game years ago - I've seen Geordie do it once or twice too. Definitely not a knock on.

I don't know where you sit/stand, sammy, but I can assure you the section of the terrace where I was standing were cheering and chanting his name loudly a lot. I was sitting in the Next Rizzo, I don't doubt the terrace were making plenty of noise or supporting him though. From where I was sitting t...

Andy Goode - some people just don't get it!

I haven't done much posting on here recently because I'm pretty sure I'm in a considerable minority - people who actually go to Welford Road on a weekly basis and watch the lads. But I'm back with an almighty moan, one that left me walking away from Welford Road swearing, shouting and beating up the...

Am I the only one who accepts the horrible, horrible truth? As fans we are friendly, welcoming and as a rule pretty knowledgable. But did anyone hear the atmosphere at the Edinburgh game? It was like a funeral! Granted, most Tigers fans are approaching death rather rapidly, but that's no excuse to n...

Tigers aren't daft, planning should essentially be a formality. They will be working with the council to make sure everything runs smoothly. It is in the interests of both parties to avoid any mess ups. I've covered a few of these sort of things and when the council are eager to get someone to reinv...

sammy I didn't know Balding had gone to Moseley. Is that a permanent move or is it just to give him game time. I actually thought he would do well at Gloucester but he had a lot of injuries as far as I can remember so really didn't get much chance I guess. I suppose it doesn't read well as far as B...

Injuries at scrum half will cause problems for a while, lack of cover at hooker for Chuter (why did they let Buckland go?) and the apparent glut of back row forwards disguises the fact that most of them are No8's by nature (Moody excepted) are going to restrict our chances of winning the HC. Are Ca...
