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

My biggest gripe with premiership rugby is the TMO. TMO calls are run on an interventionist nature, often after a smart Alec pundit has picked "something" up. Healey is especially annoying at this and I totally understand Neil Back's perspective when he said he took an instant dislike to the bloke ...

Re: Goneva

Agree Goneva has been outstanding for Falcons, and was the match winner at the weekend. However, in his final season at Tigers he looked utterly disinterested and I would have got rid too, at the time.

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

Not saying it's the reason we won't make top 4 or top 6. Tigers have been poor over the course of the season, too many players not living up to their reputations. But none of that has anything to do with Pearce's decision. That kind of shambles isn't mitigated by the fact that Tigers' final league p...

Not getting European rugby makes signing players alot harder.
It also makes balancing the books a lot harder - if Sale beat us to 6th it will be a huge blow for the club.

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

The decision and specifically the way it was made by the officials was an embarrassment to rugby. Whether Tigers deserved to win or deserved to be in top 4 is utterly irrelevant. Really makes me start to consider whether the hundreds of pounds I spend to watch rugby every year is really worthwhile. ...

Re: Tigers v Newcastle Falcons

In the scrum I would expect Tigers to be comfortably on top. In the lineout... who knows, but it could be the opposite.

A bit of rain and lots of handling errors should play in our favour.

Re: Us or them?

It's going to take one or two instances like this to put the reigns on the overspending in England. When the sugar daddies up and leave, the sustainable models of clubs like Exeter and the Tigers will come to the fore. I read this week that Exeter were the only Premiership club to make a profit las...

Shows how much his teammates rate the work he puts in, that doesn't always get noticed by us on the outside.

Re: How long before the whole England team is from the Southern Hemisphere?

To go back to the original point, my opinion is that I'm not too bothered about a player's 'Englishness' as long as he's fully committed. However surely they should be playing in this country at the very least? In my mind the bigger issue is that by selecting Shields, Jones and the RFU are devaluin...

Re: Catering & Bar Feedback Season 2016/17 & 2018.

The only time I've not had to queue for an age at a rugby ground for beer was at Twickenham for the Clash this year - every bar near my seat seemed almost empty and I never had to wait more than 2 minutes. It's not easy to serve thousands of drinks in a short space of time, especially in the limited...
