Re: The lack of a consistent leader

Good post, there used to be several leaders who could be interactive in a team. I think that players are over coached into thinking of set drills and pods and not encouraged to see what is there, heads up rugby that I used to describe as the Welsh style of play with the 10 having the vision and call...

Re: Job Marler racially abusing a Welsh player?

and still no one has mentioned that Marler is a prop! I know that Dan Cole reads a lot but props have a no doubt misapplied reputation for cerebral thought,evidenced by penalties at scrum time. Is there not a tradition of sledging amongst front rows, endangered by microphones all over the place. I s...

Re: Farrell must go

True you don't change winning team but Ford is a liability at the moment and I hoe that Eddie tries someone different on the summer tour.

This request is not only dubious in its timing but also in its purpose.

Re: Farrell must go

Farrell is an enforcer. Ford is a liability. I think that the Ford family are far too inclined to talk with the press, rent a quote.

Re: First things first

So why no A league? Oh money? It would be good to have some a league fixtures at club grounds where there were fewer overheads. The players would get some game time, the clubs would see some Tigers and maybe the game and the club would benefit?

Re: Mike Brown.

Interesting argument between K Wood and J Guscott on Rugby Special.

I think it should have been a penalty against Ireland for holding on

Re: Goldsmith's Player of the Month - what a joke!

Not everyone in this world has a computer or a smug phone. This site is not easy to find amongst all the stuff on the site. Quite a lot of people read the stuff but do not comment for fear of having their comments treated with scorn and ridicule. Not all Tigers fans have thick skin. I have always to...

Re: EJ & the media

The post is right most of not all the papers have very long in the tooth columnists who have an inflated opinion of their own importance. I don't think that EJ gives a monkey about any of them. He has a contract and a mission and the prawn cocktailers can go hang. Love the way he puts down journalis...

Re: England v Ireland

Joseph made 15 tackles in the game. Impressive for an attacking player.

Wales are so boring.
