True. The Tigers scrum was in all sorts of difficulties down there earlier in the season.
Given the choice, I'd rather keep Sarries for the final....on grass!

Of course! How could I forget a name like that! (at may age, quite easily!)

If he has these "soft spots", then he's better going to Bath :smt002

A very good player, apparently, although maybe more of a wing forward than an 8.
Above is a link for you all.

A year or so ago, there was an extraordinarily quick winger at Oakham School. Was he ever picked up by the Tigers Academy?

Does anyone think Sorries will move the semi to Twickers or Wem-ber-ley?
Why not, although it's probably much too short a notice to organise now.

Re: Play offs

Key players should be rested for the Bath game as it isn't strictly speaking, a must win game, because to finish second, Wasps and Exeter need to slip up - and Wasps won't lose to Irish.

Re: Play offs

Looking at the table again, Tigers, Wasps and Exeter have identical win/lose records but Tigers must be rueing the lack of bonus points won.

Re: Play offs

. Not quite right but I agree, most likely. For us to finish 2nd, Wasps just have to lose - they can even get 2 bonus points = 69pts. Chiefs lose at Quins with no bonus points = 69pts. We win with a bonus pt and we have 69pts and would be 2nd as we will have won 15 and the others 14. Number of wins...

It's unlikely Wasps will slip up against the Not-nots; the issue is whether Cockerill et al think Exeter might get nothing against Quins. If they drew a blank and we got 5 against Bath, we'd go 3rd and have a semi away at the Ricoh. Long shot...[/quote]

I agree. A very long shot!

Re: Play offs

To finish 2nd, Wasps would have to lose at home to Irish with no bp and Chiefs to lose at Quins with no bp - unlikely, in my opinion. In all probability, we're going to have to beat Sarries sometime, so why not in the semis? :smt001 Do you think that Tigers will rest several players next week at Bat...

Play offs

Am I right in thinking that in the play-offs the first placed side plays the fourth at home and the second plays the third?
If so, then Tigers will have the pleasure of going to Saracens.
In that case, we'll probably play Exeter in the final :smt002

Re: Ze Stade Fan, my thoughts are with you ...

Only two clubs will be relegated from the Top14, Oyonnax and Agen, although I believe it's still mathematically possible for them to avoid it. However, Mourad Boudjedal (spelling?) the man behind Toulon would like to reduce the Top14 by two teams, and if that were the case this season, then SF would...
