Why not just remove the indigenous branding and retain the name Exeter Chiefs?
Yes, Its the branding that is the issue, not the name

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Isn't there something about that only applying if they weren't offered a contract by a welsh region? could be wrong.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Five or six players who cares, at least they had a choice. 31 people did not. Great point. :smt038 Seems the players have been badly advised or need a reality check. The company I work for (a big company) has furloughed most the staff since March on 80% of their wage ( actually even less as they wo...

Re: RFU To Review The Use of 'Swing Low,Sweet Chariot' ; Connotations of Slavery ?

The song has been sung by rugby fans because someone more than sixty years ago invented certain hand movements to go with it. Yes it is a spiritual but are we to ban the singing of all of them and of Blues music or are we going to say that they can only be sung by black people, will sea shanties be...

Re: Ticket Refunds

I'm in a position that I would gift a refund to the club, if that is an option.Obviously not everyone can do this.

Re: Tigers on TV today

who was it that decked Rodber on the 22 at the WR end and then didn't wait to be sent off - just walked off with Rodber still out on the ground? I always thought it was Cozzer but was corrected and now can't remember the correction Rodber threw several poor bunch and went down like a sack of spuds ...

Re: Tigers vs Worcester

Olowofela grounded it on the corner flag basically, which initially I thought would be a try but I guess it’s not the same rule as it is with the goalposts. I had to hunt to find the answer, its not very clear - essential if you ground it on the base of the flag its out of play...but say the ball w...

Re: Sale vs Leicester - 21st February 2020

What do you define as a basic skill? The dropped balls, missed tackles and turnovers look to me to be the outcome of players trying too hard to force some piece of individual brilliance to make up for dull systems that aren't doing the job. Of course maybe the skills would be improved if we had a s...

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 15th Feb

From laws perspective the line of the shoulder is a line along the top of the shoulder so a hand on the shoulder is over that line and high on this context. Where does it say this in the laws? It clearly says above the shoulder, not on the shoulder. I wouldn't say on is above The frame work for a c...

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 15th Feb

Ben Whites try saving tackle WAS by law a seatbelt tackle therefore we were lucky not to concede a penalty try. White grabbed on top of the shoulder when Kibirige was still in possession, I don’t think the term ‘seat belt tackle’ is in the law. The term though refers to when the arm goes over the s...

Re: Ellis Genge Appreciation Thread

... Got the impression Ellis was a bit narked at something in the afters following his try. Maybe a Scot trying to wind him up? If I’m right, I’d like to congratulate him for holding it in. Watched the replay this morning. I don't think Ellis' face was scratched before his superb prop's try and a J...

Re: Hotel, Car Park and fanzone

I'm sure they will have done their homework with respect to available beds to service the Leicester market. In general wherever you seem to go in the UK you often find hotels fully booked if you are trying to book at the last minute so I doubt Leicester is any different. I suspect the main market w...
