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.

Re: The Six Nations 2019

All the press reporting this morning that Daly is set to be retained at 15 :smt009 and Manu play 12 with Slade outside :smt018

Now I'm worried.

Re: The England Squad

No one seems to remember Sinckler's god-awful set piece performance in the reverse fixture last year then :smt017? I remember not so long ago Sinckler being so poor at scrummaging that Luke Wallace slid up along side him to be the fourth member of the front row - extra loose head on the tight head ...

Wellsy was a Police Officer. The Youngs family are farmers I believe, in Norfolk.

Re: The England Squad

Yes and no Dan Cole who will return to Tigers. That surprises me. Genge ahead of Moon however, which is no mean feat, given how well Moon played in the Autumn. I think I agree with Scott1 and hope Eddie plays GF, OW and Manu, definitely not Manu at 12. I suppose Slade is an option at 12 but he rarel...

Re: The England Squad

The start of the 6Ns is always exciting and this year it looks closer than ever, Ireland are definitely favourites, but England and Wales have credible chances and Scotland will be no pushover, especially at home. I think Jones will pick his teams based on the opposition, for example I'm sure Brown ...
