Re: Graham Henry agrees

IMHO the problem the Tigers have is actually securing their ball. We actually score more tries than most other teams but this season we are not defending as well as before and securing the ball. . quite so re defence - tigers have scored more tries than anyone in the prem, but conceded more (many m...

Re: Agulla to be cited?

you are not correct, chinnjamie, a citing can arise from any incident that could be deemed worthy of a red card. it could be argued that murphy prevented foden from getting into a score saving position (foden has the pace, though i suspect tigers fans will see that differently) so was a professional...

Re: "Saints only profitable club"

robson is putting some extra politicians spin on good news. he's not wrong, we have the best record over the years, but its not the whole story either. tigers did have a (minor) loss one year, breaking a chain of profits, while saints managed to turn a small profit even in our league one sojourn. so...

Re: Matt everard

sure i heard everard is a free agent. bedford can be a bit indiscriminating with who they'll take in. they had a number of sarries players dual registered last season, and again this season. a few years ago there was a definite saints slant to their team ( still some of our old boys there - inc alex...

Re: Manu

Take it how you like boon. But Tigers totally bossed the second half. Only excellent Saints defence kept the score down . you manage to make my point while also missing it - well done! in the second half tigers dominated possession and territory but were totally unable to pierce the saints defence....

Re: Imagine if there were no play offs

I loathe Saffers but they did win the most games. I think you mean they succeeded in not losing the most games Tries mean bonus points which is why we finished top funny how the development which puts tigers top of the table (bonus points of either variety) is embraced by so many of you (without wh...
