Re: Tigers v Wasps

First time for a while that I've been proud to be a Tigers fan. Great performance in adversity. Ford, Holmes, Eastmond, all were very good, even Mike Williams put in a shift! I just read the match reports on line in the DT and DM, both focused on the TMO decisions but neither mentioned that we had 3...

Re: Worcester vs Tigers

I'm completely fed up this weekend. England, City and now Tigers, the only good thing a win at golf yesterday morning! Tigers are unbelievably poor, I find it hard to fathom what has happened to us these past 3 or 4 years, where did it all go wrong and do we have the right team in place to arrest th...

Re: Sarries next week

Yes Worth was one of the few positives. Varndell an utter waste of space. Individual errors cost us in the end as well as just chucking in the towel at the death, but the concerning thing for me was the lack of any penetration in our pack. We literally went backwards through the phases. As someone e...

Re: The Six Nations 2019

So i saw one doing the rounds on Twitter that is much more close up but this is the French footage which doesn’t show much. But Sinckler sounded pretty adamant he hadn’t started it. Whether he started it or not is hardly relevant, but he shouldn't have slapped Iturria on the head and grabbing his s...

Re: Sarries next week

Sadly those days are gone Big Dai..... For me rugby is not quite the same without the odd punch up. I don't mean the gratuitous stuff, but the odd brawl amongst the packs was entertaining! It is positively encouraged in ice hockey! An infamous occasion v Sarries was of course Johno's pummelling of D...

Thought to be withdrawn from training as a precaution for a sore ankle. Expected to be fit to train next week and play still against Wales. No replacement had been called up.
Phew!!

Re: The Six Nations 2019

Only Cole released out of our players Good for us, poor for England IMO. Wales will target Sinckler now with immediate niggle. Expect lots of flamboyant responses to tackles as well. Sinckler will have been lectured by EJ about his show of petulance last week. He will not rise to the bait v Wales, ...

Re: Sarries next week

Definitely see Genge, probably Cole and possibly Ford. Holmes should be available. If Ford is available centres of Toomua and Eastmond if not Hardwick and Eastmond Yes you would have thought that EJ would be keen to see Cole, Genge and Ford get some game time. Is BOC injured? If not I would definit...

Re: The Six Nations 2019

I said it "could be" (if we start well and play with intensity for 80 mins), not "would be".

But yes I agree really, I would settle for any win right now!!

Re: The Six Nations 2019

Just a great game of rugby and a brilliant performance by England, to a man they played very well. I would single out May, Slade and Maku but the pack laid the foundation for front foot rugby and amazing defence. Lawes was brilliant when he came on and must replace the unlucky Itoje v France. Althou...

Re: Ben youngs

Two things; coaching/game plan plus a great pack of forwards.

Most of the time we seem to have neither at Tigers, regrettably!!

Re: The Six Nations 2019

Afternoon guys! Butterflies already,I'd be happy just scoring a try,we haven't scored in Ireland since Steve Thompson in the 24-8 schellacking! This is the toughest game in world rugby at present ,tougher than away at NZ or SA. Ireland by 8. Scores? I too am very excited. Very difficult game to cal...

Re: France's Wales

Yes BFG,Wales didn't worry me one bit,another French implosion! But Wales will be better at home,much better and I think France will give us hell next week before running out of steam in the last 10-15. That passage of play after a miracle high ball take from Fickou was utterly ridiculous!!! Win or...

Re: France's Wales

Yes unbelievable from France. Great in the first half and a complete implosion in the 2nd. Wales didn't actually do much at all, they just capitalised on the French horror show. The French confidence must be well and truly shot after that. If only Ireland would be so accommodating tonight, not much ...

Would have preferred Manu at 13 but good luck to our Tigers.
Manu and Slade will switch around a fair bit I would guess
Yes I can see Manu standing at 13 when we are defending first phase scrums/lineouts.
