Premiership / HC strategy

Is there a case to say that we should field an LV-type 23 for the HC tie against Clermont? On the face of it, this will have many people up in arms, of that I am sure. However, considering the pros and cons, maybe this warrants further discussion. Consider the fact that none of the challengers for P...

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Shamelessly re-located from the unoffy: "The Rugby Paper say today that Opeti Fonua is on his way and that wee are looking at Christian Loamanu a Treviso franker."

Re: Transfer Rumours Thread 2013/2014 Season

Regarding Opeti Fonua... clearly, his attributes speak for themselves, having watched a few highlights. The question for me is, if he's playing for a top 14 side, why wouldn't one of the big French sides be in for him, ahead of Tigers? :smt017 Admittedly, I don't get to watch a great deal of Top 14 ...

Letting a lead slip at Welford Road

Maybe some of the 'statos' out there could help me out...

Can anyone remember the last time we got into a 10+ point lead and then subsequently lost in a home game?

Many thanks,

I think it was either Ghandi or Cockerill

Re: Tigers vs Ulster

The Pienaar point got me thinking - he is "world class" and I am defining "world class" as being of suitable ability that they would get into a current World 23. Who do we think is "world class" in the Tigers team. I can think of one player who definitely is and I could think of at least 2 more who...

Re: Tigers Catering Feedback.

I don't want to swim against the tide here, but in the interests of credit where credit's due, I lost 2 receipts when I was in the 1880 lounge at the Montpellier game. I was facing the wrath of the Finance Manager so I speculatively contacted Lindley via their website. 2 days later, they sent me cop...

Re: strange Montpellier team

13 of the team you played in Montpellier and struggled so badly to beat. I expect us to slaughter them tonight with a return to the glory days of French capitulation once you take the lead. They have already stated at home that they have no ambitions remaining in Europe this season. On the other ha...

Definitely beatable - stop the half back partnership and we definitely have the beating of them but we will need the back row to perform as Pienaar is better than YBY.
To be fair, Pienaar is better than most 9's in the world. On another note, Montpellier's hooker was immense tonight.

Re: Tickets for the HC final.

No one is shooting you down, Tiger Eye, you're as entitled to say what you feel here as anyone else. I don't know any of the rivalry between the teams but assumed that it would be intense, as the similar rivalry between certain teams and Tigers here. I don't know - would the majority of Tigers fans...
