Re: cheer ourselves up - Racing v Tigers

Didn’t want to repost another moan about Owens but checking the try after the conversion has been taken, forward passes galore, NFL style blocking and Racing Metros ‘impeccable discipline’.... this is starting to become a bit of a joke To be fair ,Owens didn’t know the conversion had been Kicked.

That's a couple of different sources today who confidently claim Mike Ford is coming imminently.

Thoughts?
State your sources.

Re: Tigers vs Saracens

Plucky fight back. Ref and TMO bottled it at every opportunity. How the knock on/yellow card wasn’t a PT is a mystery....unless you think two professional sportsmen can’t run 20 yards...god even I can do that

Re: Laws and/or entertainment?

It’s not come to it yet but I do wonder how much longer I’ll watch a sport that doesn’t enforce it’s own laws.

Re: Referees

For me, its not that mistakes are made or things missed, its always going to happen...its the non-reffing especially stepping off side at the break down and off the feet at the breakdown - for the love of God, ping them!

Re: Spencer banned for four weeks

Inconsistency will be the death of Rugby. I have no problem with the Red under the laws but will we see reds for every single blow to the head? I doubt it. Will we see consistency in suspensions, well we now know we won't. If RFU/WR are saying blow to the head is a red, then red card all players tha...

Re: Wasps Vs Tigers

Personally I think that for a Red Card to be issued the referee should be satisfied there was intent But what about negligence? Spencer was aiming to tackle in the upper chest area , so therefore risked a high tackle in the dynamics of it all. Spencer had the option to go lower but chose not to, th...

Re: Exeter team

Hearing Baxter reply to a question on Kvesic's good early form his reply said it all in that Kvesic had arrived for pre-season in very good condition. It must be nice to possess professional players that take responsibility! I've seen better prepared and fitter amateurs. :smt009 to be fair MOC did ...

Re: Exeter team

Shocking performance. At no time were we close to scoring. You Simply can’t play MT when he has been in the Southern Hemisphere as a starter.
