Re: Ford to Bath and other reports

granby - fotuali'i has been signed primarily as a 9, mallinder has been explicit on this. he has played 10, including internationally, but as i say the management have been clear he is seen mainly as scrum half - which is after all where he has been terrifying people from this season, including your...

Re: Ford to Bath and other reports

quite agree, hinckley bob, i would be disappointed to see ford come to the gardens, he is not what we need. rumour is we are looking to the southern hemisphere for a fully formed flyhalf alongside myler anyways. as for lamb - nice bloke, good player on his day, good luck to him unless you are playin...

Re: Cockerill has sympathy for Saints . . .

.....while subtly putting pressure on parling to sign on for less than his market value, or look mercenary for taking another teams coin.

quite a canny move that. :smt006

Re: How others see us

i reckon that thread title should have the word 'some' in there somewhere. to illustrate - here is an alternative viewpoint, also from the saints website earlier this season: "as andysaint suggests people need to keep some perspective here - tigers have reached a lot of prem finals but lost most of ...

delusions of grandeur

some of you need to get over yourselves (imo).

internet forums combine the excitement of typing with the intellectual rigour of terrace banter. they are the digital equivalent of a schoolgate gossip or a bar room chat, not pm question time or an evening at the oxford union.

Re: Gibson in talks with Tigers for next season

is it really necessary for people to have to reference their sources all the time?

in a legal brief, academic essay etc - yes. on here i dont see why.

Re: Tom Heathcote

thats a lot of pressure to put on young heathcote, tigerburnie, given he's a fly half.

mightymouse - very highly rated prospect in the bath region, but still young & this would a lot to put on him....

Re: All Black Maori game

Re: Clark Apology

re the apology to rob hawkins , i dont understand why so many tigers fans feel he did not apologise. he tried to see hawkins after the lv final but it was still raw with the tigers camp (quite understandably so) and he was denied access. he therefore intended to write a letter of apology and try to...

Re: Saints game

soggypitch - i suspect you might be right, and tbh tend to agree this is probably not the game for cc to make his first appearance in.

if needs be we have harrison and nutley to stand in on the flank anyways. both young but promising players

Re: Tom Youngs into England 32 man squad for AI

fair enough. is jamie george getting enough game time at sarries though? if he doesnt get 'rotated in' and get a proper run at some point its hard to see how he will ever challenge for an england shirt (unless he moves elsewhere?). mike haywood perhaps doesnt bring the leadership of hartley, but is ...
