Re: Guy Novès may be looking for a job!

Novès is a legend here in Toulouse having guided Stade Toulousain to French Champions on numerous occasions between 1993 and 2015 and four times European champions, so calling him a first rate coach is perfectly justified. However, the French XV has been at loggerheads with the club structure and t...

Kerr, Wells and Thompson have to come into the starting pack. All bring grit and determination that we’ll need against Newcastle.
"Grit and determination"......we need a bloomin' miracle!!!!!

Re: Musings re Tigers' current position

Healey virtually single handedly won us 2 European Cups, lest you forget !!!! And he was Johnnos best friend... I think you will find that Neil Back hand a big hand in winning the 2nd one :smt003 I think you will find that our team then was better in just about every position, and certainly in the ...

Re: Genge in the Telegraph

Even if I was rich I would be reluctant to send my kids to private school, no sense of reality. You do come out with some rubbish JP14, but at least with rugby perhaps you have some clue occasionally. But the above statement is such a ridiculous generalisation that it makes you look truly foolish.

Re: Tigers v Chiefs

Our team looks pretty good, but then I nearly always think that and usually we are awful! So here's hoping that MF has made a difference this week, wish I could be at the game, but have a prior commitment at a local sports club. Win today and we'll definitely stay up, lose badly and we will be in fo...

Re: Brian Moore Article Doom Monger..

Brian Moore does not like Leicester, he and the awful Ackford have always voiced their dislike of Tigers and any Tigers player our success irritated them beyond measure so now the Pitbull thinks we are down he is taking the opportunity to stick his boot in. Take no notice of him, I stopped reading ...

Re: The Six Nations 2019

Entertaining game - do you remember the last time the Italians visited Twickenham?!

Having said that I reckon I England will thrash them, taking out the frustration of a sub par 2nd half performance v Wales.

Re: Tait Retires

Keep meaning to post on this thread.

Matt Tait a true Tigers great. Always gave 100%, incredibly versatile, never complained about terrible bad luck with injuries; he will be badly and sadly missed!!!

Good luck with your new career Matt, whatever that may be.

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!!
