Re: Julian cited

Unfortunately I believe he will be banned. However, I am becoming dismayed at the Citing/ Disciplinary System. It was obvious that the referee saw what went on. He deemed it a penalty and nothing else. If he thought that it was a card, I am sure he would have used it. The hearing tonight should only...

Re: What was that then? A message from Exeter.

Other than the Rugby, we had a great weekend in Exeter. However, I believe that things could have been worse - certainly a number of referees would have reduced us to 14 men, after a very stupid use of his footwear by one of our few fit tight heads! The reason we lost was down to player errors, not ...

Re: Loss to Exeter

Exeter performed really well, playing as a team, except perhaps for the lineout where we did fairly well. They had their fair share of luck, perhaps created by their positive attitude. Individually, and as a team, we were behind them. However, please be realistic. We lost two backs at half-time, wit...

Re: Cockerill's future

How can you blame the coaching staff for what happened on Saturday. It wasn't their fault that we lost 2 good players to injury by halftime. The game was so close it could easily have gone the other way. Take the referee for example- he gave their flanker a real roasting for a late tackle on TF, aft...

Re: Billy's off...

I am really sorry to see him go, but I think he will struggle to get into a Gloucester back division that looks as good as anything in the premiership!
If the guy isn't happy, whether it's money or first team opportunities, then he should go.

Re: Where will we finish this season?

I am confident and agree with Zdzislaw. If we get into the top 4, which we will, I am certain that we will be the opposition the other 3 want to avoid. There is nothing to fear if we have reasonable fortune with injuries. We have yet to see the Quins / Saints/ Sarries play on any surface other than ...

Re: Is it time to thank Cockers for his efforts? - Part 2

I am not surprised at the attacks on our coaches. It happened with Tony Russ, Bob Dwyer, Dean Richards, Pat Howard and now Richard Cockerill. As soon as we hit a bad patch the clamour comes for the removal of the coaches. Give it a rest! At this time we need to go back to basics, do the simple thing...
