Re: Ford or Toomua?

Still :smt007 think that Toomua should remain at 10. Personally I think he’d make a better PM than Theresa May as well, but since he’s still an Australian National I don’t think it’ll happen do you? Well it makes as much sense as this thread. What is it with some on this forum Harrison instead of B...

Re: Exeter Chiefs the new (old?) Tigers?

That's not what happened, though. Whilst I think Cockers was wrong to sideline Waldrom, he did it for rugby reasons and not vindictiveness. Waldrom made himself available for England fairly early, and even got a call-up to the 2011 WC squad. Yet he was still first choice at Tigers through the 2011-...

Re: Why not us?

Exeter have a very, very good coach and play rugby the right way, the way we used to. The way we should have stuck to instead of trying to play "entertaining rugby" just to keep some fans happy who were bored watching "boring" rugby. I feel like a parrot. I said this, the very moment Mauger was bro...

Re: Exeter Chiefs the new (old?) Tigers?

OK do you mean me? My info comes from inside Chiefs and from fans including my brother. TTTE was a lazy poacher at Tigers and started that way at Chiefs until he was brought up short following 'discussions'. Thereafter his work ethic FOR THE TEAM improved. The fault at Tigers was his and Cockers fo...

Re: Shazam

I'm not sure anyone is blaming Harrison for the defeat against Castres, which would be utterly ridiculous, or any other defeat this season for that matter. Even if he was being singled out, why is that less acceptable than "picking on" MOC? Others such as Smith, Manu, Ben Youngs, Joe Ford etc also ...

Re: Shazam

Nice bloke & tries hard but IMHO not good enough, same thing applies to Matt Smith.

Neither are going to get any better right now they are both blocking the route to the first team of other players and hence hindering their development.

If MO'C sticks to his plan.......hang on :smt042 :smt043 plan?! :smt044 .......then he'll select a very similar team to last time. If SC has any influence - thinking 'bums on seats' - we might get closer to the 1st XV
Which should tell us a lot, whose picking the team SC & BK or MO'C?

Re: MOC to be sacked?

[quote=ellis9 Firstly, sacking Cockerill was wrong. Secondly, appointing Mauger was wrong. Thirdly, appointing MOC was wrong, which I said at the time. Finally, whoever decided we should change the style of play to "entertain" the supporters was wrong. I also said this at the time too. [/quote] A lo...

Re: MOC to be sacked?

Right in what regard JG & Ellis9? Are you saying the appointment of AM and the reappointment of MOC by our wonderful BoD was wrong? If so you may well be right on both counts. If you are saying this proves the removal of RC was wrong I dispute that passionately. The style and substance of our play u...

Re: All not well for Mallender?

The only players in the Saints squad that I think would genuinely improve our own squad are Lawes and Mallinder (Jnr). There may be a couple of others but it tells you all you need to know about their lack of quality, because we are pretty average! Lawes definitely. Mallinder Jnr? Problem with Lawe...

....But the elephant in the room is that if Tuilagi was good enough, Jones would perhaps look more favourably at his selection.

Can't believe it, I need to lie down in a dark room, twice on one thread I agree with ellis9. Don't think we've agreed on anything before have we? First the analysis of Sunday's game was exactly the game I watched. The assasination of Ben Youngs on this forum and at the game is getting ridiculous. I...
