Haven't exactly shown much this season IMO.
Assuming no arguments there - that still makes 5 better number 8's in the Premiership. Is 6th best in the league good enough?

Re: Quins must win 23

I'm not sure the problem is the injury to Denton. The existing back row players O'Connor, Kalamafoni and Thompston are good enough and probably as good as he is as individuals. We just aren't a team and haven't been for several years. That back row seems decent until you compare it to the other bac...

Re: Tigers v Racing

For me Fordy was excellent against Racing save that horrendous pass he threw when we were attacking 5 meters from their try line that went miles behind all our back line. The result was a complete waste of a try scoring opportunity and we were left scampering to collect and retain the ball having s...

Re: Murphy appointed head coach

GM was a great Tigers player, but what has he genuinely achieved as a coach? If MOC wasn't good enough, how have the performances and results since then proved that GM is the right man for the job? If MOC was on such thin ice that one defeat would mean sacking, why not just sack him months earlier a...

Re: cheer ourselves up - Racing v Tigers

Much better performance with ball in hand but... defence defence defence defence!! How is it still so bad? Why didn't we just go after Gustard last season if we were going to get rid of MOC so quickly this season? The lineout too... For what it's worth, I thought White was very good, really snappy s...

Re: Forward passes and putting the ball in

Most referees allow forward passes these days unless they are blatant. Probably the most aggravating part of watching a game of rugby for me.

Re: Nigel Owens

We lost the game because our defence was poor. Nigel Owens was pretty dreadful, despite his good player communication and occasional entertaining wit. Unless Barnes is in charge, I generally expect to be frustrated by the officiating regardless of which teams are on the pitch. In defence of Owens, a...

Re: Anyone taking Betts

" It is thought that Cohen has sounded out several players individually this week and they have asked the club hierarchy to delay any appointment until after the weekend, with a view to a delegation from the squad seeking further talks with leading officials about the recruitment plans." That sums ...

Re: Tigers' decline

For the past few seasons I've remained positive that the team will improve, but sadly now I look at people like the poster above me who describe the current situation as "rock bottom" and I think that they are being very optimistic. However, despite recent performances, there are a lot of very talen...

Re: Harry gets three

I simply cannot understand how we allowed Harry Wells to leave. He was knocking on the door for a regular first team slot. He will go on the be great player methinks. Another massive mistake by the board. Crazy decision at this point in the season, leaves us short on locks with no chance to replace...

Re: December 2018 - a critical month for those at the helm of Leicester FC

Over a period of 14 days (Dec 9th to 22nd) we have 3 games - Racing 92 twice in the Champions Cup and, on the 22nd, Quins in the Premiership. I'm not a defeatist and I understand that we need our best 23 used to playing together - and we need to start building a 'winning mentality'. Nevertheless - ...
