Re: Worcester vs Tigers

Exactly! Very good player but underpowered at times, especially at 8. Him and BoC outside a beast would've worked though. Which was the plan via Fonua, trouble is didn't work and the board couldn't be asked to find a replacement the following season. Yep, they couldnt be bothered to fund any of RCs...

Re: Worrying Developments

Nothing will change until we clear out Glyn, Kay, Underhill and Cohen. They are wringing the life out of our great club. The appointment of Murphy is proving as brilliant as bringing back MOC! I still stand on my criticism that this debacle started around 2012-13 and was visible 2013-14, due to lac...

Re: Worcester vs Tigers

People management is a fickle thing. Personally I think the players need some putting down in some cases (some especially more than others). Mauger was a very nice guy and he never said anything bad about the players, players led a group that kicked him out. This isn’t his squad on the whole. You k...

Re: Hé hasn’t exactly got the best squad . . . . .

I can’t see a win at Worcester I’m afraid. That’s not me being doom-mongering it’s just how they ship the ball in contact is better than ours and while our defence is getting better, they will probably still find ways of getting round us on the outside. The game last year is a poor comparison. Yep,...

To lose Harrison would be awful, but there seems to be nothing in the rumour to substantiate it.
I always said that if the club dropped Smith or Harrison it would surely have lost its way.

Re: Hé hasn’t exactly got the best squad . . . . .

I think the most depressing thing yesterday was the very limited game plan - very little ball of our own so what do we do when we get the ball ? - Ben White time after time takes an absolute age to kick it straight back to Sarries . TBH on the limited view of Simmons thought he was livelier than Wh...

Re: Hé hasn’t exactly got the best squad . . . . .

Two reflections. Yes there are questions about the BoD, and I am of one mind with Sapajo that BK, RU and GG carry most of the blame along with Cohen, Peter Tom and those 'influential senior players'. I don't expect much change there. Having said that it is IMO 2012 when the first failures to spend s...

Re: Sarries next week

Murphy managed to get Taufua to come over Bordeux. He clearly has a vision that is selling the club. Now does he need a better DOR maybe. But people need to give him at least a full season in charge before judging him fully. We have the ability as shown before like beating Gloucester by 20 points. ...

We are playing for 11th at the moment
We're 12 points from relegation, and 3 points from top 6.

But yes we are currently playing for 11th....
Don't let stats get in the way of whiners. We have always been playing to scrape top 6, we will get better.

Good for us, poor for England IMO. Wales will target Sinckler now with immediate niggle. Expect lots of flamboyant responses to tackles as well.

Re: The Six Nations 2019

Sinckler's incident was never a yellow card. The only time that would be carded is in a bad-tempered match where the ref needed to get back some control and discipline. I think we got lucky on the penalty try, mind. It was a penalty and almost certainly a card, but didn't look like a penalty try to...

Brizzle have some deep pockets! Yes they have just extended Jordan Crane's contract for another 12 months. https://www.planetrugby.com/news/jordan-crane-signs-bristol-bears-contract-extension/ Indeed they have..... and their supporters are delighted about it and were teaching about his performances...
