Re: Bath next week ....

The Roberts try is debatable, I can see both sides of the argument. For me, not a try but if it was a Tigers player? I'm not so sure. The Knock on - clearly a knock on. As others have said, if Worth was holding on then that means it should be a penalty to Bath. You can't continue a penalty advantage...

Re: Diamond in trouble?

If Diamond, as a person in a very public role, can't take a newspaper article criticising him then he's going to have a very unhappy and angry life. It's the nature of the role and reacting like he did will only exacerbate it. Being a prop or northern is no excuse for behaving the way he did. Typica...

Best ref in the world by some margin. Delighted to have him for any match, whoever the opposition.

Re: Murphy appointed head coach

Agree with what Goode has written - but is Ford really on more than Williams and Burns together? Surely not! Maybe he means what they were on at Tigers, which probably wouldn't have been enough to keep them. The idea of having committees to run this sort of business is ridiculous, and strikes me as ...

Re: Quins must win 23

Tigers fans would need to watch hours of video to have an idea as to whether Sam Simmonds, Nathan Hughes or Ben Morgan might be better than Kalamafoni? Fair enough! Defence is why we are so low down in the league, clearly, and that is in large part down to the centres - but it isn't just them missi...

Didn't MOC want Davis but the BoD refused?
Probably Yes, that's because they wanted Davies. :smt001
If they refused to employ a decent defence coach because of spelling error, then they are truly useless.

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...
