Re: Ireland vs England - is this the big one?

What a result, Farrell is forever growing into that position (pains me to say that) still has his faults but they are becoming increasingly minor to the bigger picture. Ashton shouldn't be starting at present, teams not allowing him to play the way he use to? the Sorries effect? tiredness? not match...

Re: Why is Farrell so good and getting all the praise?........

I was also critical of Farrell, but hands up he seems to be improving with each international game he plays. I have still doubts about areas of his game, but he is improving!

Re: So how did we get on today?

We got the win, and we had a few laughs. Henson scuffed a practise drop kick which was followed by cheers of laughter and banter and a smile from himself, then nails the next, again followed by laughter and banter and a small fist pump by henson to acknowledge the crowd. Hawkins boot ! Munipolo's cr...

Re: Ryan Lamb

I take kicking percentages with a pinch of salt. If a player has 10 kicks on the touchline and fails to convert any of them he has a kicking percentage of 0% whereas a player who kicks 10 kicks in front of the posts and converts all will have a 100% record. Its hardly an accurate stat to go by how g...

Re: Ryan Lamb

I never said it was a good idea! I just noticed that the leicester mercury correspondant was talking to him over twitter and i thought this may not be a coincidence... some people are so negative on here :-p I thought that was to do with Lamb's wife and the line of work she is in. I'm sure he asked...

Re: Tigers vs. Scarlets

The score line was an embarrassment which was a result of the embarrassing performance. A pointless game or not, these boys had a chance to show that they can step up they blew it. A real shame and awful to watch our pack fold towards the end. The "fringe" players still have alot to learn and a long...

Re: Ford to Bath and other reports

Okay I'll say it. He wants to wind his neck in. We owe him nothing. I'd lose no sleep over him being left in the development side for the rest of the season. Concur!! :smt023 Me Three, Fair play to the lad, he could have left it till March to confirm his intentions, and then we would be developing ...

Re: Reply from Prem rugby re. Sarries k/o time

Although I am not a fan of any kick offs other than 15:00 on a Saturday, Korn boy is right. The players that play for our local sides would very rarely get an opportunity to see the Tigers play due to playing themselves. Yes the minority on a game day are the age range that play for their local side...

Re: Castro: "It must happen before the 6N starts!"

Cole is playing better than Castro and has done for the past year or so. If he doesnt like playing second fiddle to someone (IMO) who is playing better than him, than thats life. You can see his frustration but play better than Cole and he'll get the starts. I'm pretty sure the coaches do not want t...

It is reported on thisisleicestershire.com I think we all have grown tired of this subject and can admit that we feel he won't stay. A choice that is his. I hope he is successful in his search to find whatever it is he is looking for. IMO I feel this is a bad move for him, he still has a lot to lear...

Re: Tigers v Toulouse

I didn't realise Toulouse had done walked off like that until I read it here but if that is the case it is a disgrace. I naively thought that despite all the money in the game these days there are some traditions of sportsmanship and mammers that were sacrosanct in the game and which divides us fro...

Loved Cockers response to daggers Toulon Castro link.
Something along the lines of, we'll be staying at Castro's house, tongue in cheek of course.
