Re: Nottingham!

If what we hear from the club is correct, then we have a new pitch directly as a result of their investment, so I have no problem with the Nottingham. And for the record I think it is quite a good building society as well.

Re: Fan radio

Unfortunately, these radios are not two-way, so I will not be investing.

Re: Tigers v Bath

Returning to the OP, I strongly believe that we will beat Bath. I base that on a very strong pack, with a good bench for the pack. Personally with the backline , I would like to see TV at fullback with Thompstone coming in. With no returns from the sickbay, I would leave the other backs alone and g...

Re: Pub Recommendations for pre/post match.

Personally, the Try Line Club is not for me, but I think if the club can make money out of such ventures it's absolutely fine, and good luck to those who use them.
I prefer to use the ABC before the game, then the Cherry Tree in Little Bowden after.

Re: Tigers v Bath

Looking at our centre options, we know once fit, we could have the best pairing in the Northern Hemisphere. However, back up doesn't look great, so why not try HT in there for the last twenty. He has great speed, good ball handling and tackles like a man possessed. He certainly gives us an option!

Re: Simon Cohen's well chosen words ..............again

Reading the variety of comments, it seems that the general opinion on our finances, is that our long term plans, and stepped improvements, is the right thing for us. I also believe that Saints are another club who seem to have a sustainable future, with their ground improvement carried out gradually...

Re: It's like watching Tigers

And they should have had many more points, squandering several opportunities in the second half.

Re: Tigers v Bath

Sibarite, why can't I be positive? I have been a Tigers member for over 35 years and have seen many periods similar to now, when we have been playing poorly 'as a team'. Each time we have come through it. This will be another of those periods! I could not contemplate myself being part of the rampant...

I believe that he can bring 'Foul Play' to the referees attention, if he is not making his tea that is!

Re: Simon Cohen's well chosen words ..............again

Silverware vs Sustainability, it's an interesting question to try and answer. I don't believe that there is any doubt that our success over the last 20 years has led to increasing crowds, ground improvements etc. We have been able to increase our income from sponsorship, but for some reason we have ...

Re: Daft Waller, clueless Garner

I don't think that it was clear that Saints had pulled it down. No doubt it went down, but not certain who was responsible. I am concerned that he, Mr Garner, was penalising for not releasing, when the incoming players were not supporting their own weight, ie hands to ground first, dragging the ball...

Re: It's all about decision making

I believe the OP was about Saracens, with a mention of where the current Tigers sit in the area of mental preparation. My comment was about Saracens- nothing else!
