Re: Finishing outside the top 4: humiliating blow to confidence or useful wake-up call?

In terms of defence, too many missed tackles, and too many gaps around the breakdown. The latter has cost us a fair few tries in recent months.

Re: MOC to be sacked?

2 points for me,Chiefs have got 60 odd players in their cap so it isn't always paying more that gets the best,its value for money. But it's also absolutely tied in with the coaches,if you put together an AP XV you wouldn't get many Chiefs players but theyre still the best drilled and know exactly w...

Re: MOC to be sacked?

Given the salary cap, the wage bill is broadly similar for most clubs. Yes, I did acknowledge that, however... it does suggest that in sport the results are largely down to the quality of the players, and not the tactics or coaching of those who they play for. It's not the fact that you are paying ...

Re: Honest Assessment- Problems are above MOC.

I'm going to slightly divert topic here but are Toomua and Ford actually any good friends/partners or is there flyhalf/inside centre partnership like a forced 17th century aristocratic marriage that was arranged by Ged Glynn?? Fair question. Now our 4-8 doesn't look so much like a weak link lacking...

Apparently, Mr Barnes is 'Sir'.

Phew.
Great news, now all we have to worry about is whether the team can remember what the word "accuracy" means and how to achieve it.

Re: MOC to be sacked?

Our good form coincided with Bakewell's arrival, yes. Doesn't mean it was all down to him, there were plenty of other possible factors. BOC returning, Genge returning, Toomua at 10, the list goes on. Sometimes teams have ups and downs for no discernible reasons. We don't see what goes on behind the ...

Re: Wasps win...We must win v Sale (or must we?)

Toomua looked like a world class fly half when he filled in there for a few matches. If he can do it within MOC's tactics and instructions, why can't Ford? The "MOC is rubbish" line surely can't be used to excuse every poor performance from every player? I'm a big fan of Ford, IMO he was a great sig...

Re: Wasps win...We must win v Sale (or must we?)

Stuart Barnes in today's "Times" places the blame for the loss against Newcastle on the captain. Ford has become dull and unadventurous, trying to protect a lead rather than win a game. Barnes writes that he started as a positive decision maker and now he delivers montonous distribution too far fro...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non Tigers 2016/17

Here's a quick heads up. Ackerman took over the Lions four years ago when they were SA worse side. In that space he turned them into a superb outfit,that not only kept the Bok power game but he even beat the NZ at their own game at times playing with pace and scoring some incredible trys! They had ...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non Tigers 2016/17

Genuine question(s) here. I don't watch a lot of Super Rugby (maybe a handful of games over the last few years) so I don't know that much about southern hemisphere players other than those that I've seen play for their countries and those that play in Europe. The South African team has been fairly p...

Re: Have we just fallen foul of the worst tmo ever made?

For me it is not that the refs make mistakes during play, frustrating at the time but understandable. It's the blatant not reffing of the match or ignoring obvious infringements. Coming in to the ruck off your feet is just not reffed any more, neither is players not retreating in front of the kicke...

Re: MOC to be sacked?

Tiglon the lack of ‘skills’ has often been of the very basic level, giving and taking of passes, and at the level of players at Tigers should be a given. It seems a bit harsh to blame Geordie. Agree - the players must take a big wedge of the responsibility for this. My comment on Geordie's responsi...

Re: MOC to be sacked?

This season has been pretty awful by any standards (and might get even worse this weekend). However, the club was already falling apart before MOC's arrival. It was never going to be fixed in one year. Give him next season (or at least part of it, depending on how it goes) with the new arrivals in ...
