Re: France - end of season round up.

Thx Robespierre. I always enjoy your updates. And experience envy at you living there! I’ll have to make do with some Provence rosé and some half decent weather in Staffs today. Only 15 more years of work....... Thanks Gg. There doesn't appear to be many of you who take an interest with French rugb...

Do people think Blommitijies will return?
If the Scarlets/Ospreys merger joke had occurred he'd have been a steal for pennies

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2018-19

Once again I am in agreement with BFG, for me team spirit starts with young single guys going out on the town with their team mates, of course at a suitable time before a match or training, and with a blind eye being turned when necessary with discipline maintained. Imported outsiders brought in on...

Re: Smithy

Coupled with falling off the back of the roof of a small bike shelter I was building (only a couple of feet into a bush), the Toomua situation has led me to drink GIN, I HATE gin, but the Mrs was quaffing. :smt030 We are coming on Saturday purely to say thanks to Smithy, the bloke is a throwback to ...

Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

Simon Cohen's concern is that the role and scope of the rugby committee is no longer fit for purpose. He's right. Simon Cohen has great respect for the skills. competencies and awareness of the Board members and would like them to play a bigger role in producing success on the field as well as off ...

Club first. 23 with his attitude would be great.
Forwards with the Julian White spirit, backs with Smithy's. Title contenders!

Total :censored: disappointment, to say the least. Saw very few really classy flashes, and a lot of not much. Such promise, such disappointment.

Re: Weekend match thread

Really enjoyed the final and as always admired Sarries’ fitness levels and skills. 12 of the squad came through their academy. Congratulations to the whole club. Watched some of them come through at Bedford both Goode and Spencer were at Cambridge - too good for the level. How many players have the...

Re: Weekend match thread

There's no reason with the right coaching why we can't be like that... We can only hope. It pains me to admit who we should emulate. Enough of hiring ex-Tigers, let’s have some ex-Sarries... Once upon a time we had a good team and a good coaching squad and matched Sarries. They went onwards and upw...

Re: London Irish: an immorality tale?

One guy expresses his beliefs inline with his religion, albeit publicly - we don’t want him at Tigers and should never play again. One guy is found not guilty in a lengthy trial, which exposes some private messages which were derogatory towards women - we don’t want him at Tigers and should never p...

Re: London Irish: an immorality tale?

fleabane I would be appalled if Tigers even thought about it. I did follow the trial in the Irish news, and was horrified by what appeared to be misogynistic behaviour of a nasty group. If it was my daughter he'd be playing for London Eunuchs :smt013

Re: Smithy

Remember us playing Ulster at the height of Trimble's powers. I think Trimble got one run all match as Smithy did an awesome 1-on-1 on him, every time he got the ball....Crunch! A truly great servant and far better than any used to credit. He DID pass the ball now and again, which is more than Danny...

Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

Same old excuses. If they aren't fit enough then as pro players they aren't committed enough, and judging on some of the defending this season I'd say that's a fair comment. What does anyone really expect when they sacked Cockerill, too demanding! Some of this lot don't know what a hard days work i...

Re: Ring fencing

I suggest Sky because BT are showing the Premiership games that take place at the same time as Premiership matches, Sky or terrestrial TV could show Championship games to an interested audience and that would bring in sponsorship and investment to the teams. I'd doubt Sky would necessarily want to ...
