Re: Quins vs Tigers

Yes ellis winning is the most important thing and it is possible to do so with a limited game plan, but at some point other teams work you out and the plan needs to evolve. Look at Sarries very limited game plan a few years ago under Venter, we all hated the style but had grudging respect, now we ha...

Re: Quins vs Tigers

The 2nd half performance was frankly a disgrace for a premiership rugby team. Individual mistake after individual mistake, followed by brainless penalties, one after the other. No wonder we could get no momentum and our playmakers lost confidence and started kicking the ball away when we did have it...

Re: It was 10 years ago...

I watched it in the Plough at Bruntingthorpe with two of my boys. We had snook away from a family party (my wife's ageing Aunt) in Shearsby and I said "We won't be long". When we returned 2.5 hours or so later my wife said; "Where have you been?" I said "there was extra time and penalties!!" She nee...

Re: Pat Howard

All users are entitled to their opinions and should be respected, even if you disagree. Thanks :smt015 :smt015 :smt015 Only a week or so ago lots of Tigers players and officials received completely unacceptable abuse on various social media platforms. Quite rightly the perpetrators were widely cond...

Re: Tigers v Bristol - 27th April 2019

In my view, the forwards carried well today especially Kalamafoni and Spencer, but the attack (especially from Toomua) was far too lateral and easily defendable. I thought one of their tries was a forward pass but I was far away in the Crumbie so I can’t say for sure. Personally I don’t think the l...

Re: Pat Howard

I'm not sure that JP was offering the Board his unequivocal support, but as so often on this forum, everything has to be black and white. Well JP has accused today's ref of actual bias (on the main match thread), that's pretty black and white! Having a bad day, poor, :censored: etc all opinions and...

Last thing we need is another ex Tiger.
Disagree. There are ex Tiges and there are ex Tigers, like Pat Howard who would be brilliant as a DoR above Geordie.

Only in my dreams could that happen however.

Re: Led Cusworth post match interview

I heard the same interview on RL on the way home after the match. Les is certainly a lot more interesting, informed and lucid than Bleddyn!!

You give a very good summary sapajo.

If only Pat Howard could be that new DoR........

Re: Tigers v Bristol - 27th April 2019

We are not short of ability in our squad (except in a couple of positions), but we are lacking enough players with the right character. That doesn't mean that certain players are not trying, but it does mean that when the chips are down, they lack a certain inner grit/fortitude, call it what you wil...

Re: Coventry crowd

They were also forced into having an artificial pitch as a requirement of their lease at Allianz. The pitch needs to be available to the community year round and it only works if artificial. Don't know if it is not so good as Newcastle/Glasgow, but I had a run round on it a few years ago and it seem...

Re: Coventry crowd

The Ricoh is a soulless place even when full, why not have this semi at WRd, a proper rugby ground and I reckon a fair few Tigers fans would have turned out as well. Just plain poor planning by the organisers. As for Sarries they were quite magnificent yesterday. They are a credit to the English Pre...

Player of the season. The only other candidate being Ford.

It's not just their ability, it's their mentality.

Re: Tigers v Newcastle - 12th April 2019

Gritty performance by the team last night. Yes we gave away a couple of silly tries, but overall the defence was better and the commitment was certainly there. Standout performance by Thomo. Good performances by Ford, Toomua, Spencer and Fitzgerald. But all played better, even Williams! I'm much mor...
