Re: > He's not the Messiah... he's a very naughty boy

Piece of sense at last. Exactly why I get fed up with Tigers back play. I have come to the same conclusion, that I am never going again to see skilful adventurous play again at WR unless by the visitors, at least not under the current coaches.

Re: Sale target George Ford

So you think Bowden is coming to play third fiddle after Flood and Ford? Surely that's way too much fiddling! And maybe to challenge AA for 12, when everyone knows that even a half fit AA will always be shown preference? In terms of 10 then I think Bowden will be happy to play third fiddle. He is a...

Re: Your England Team v Scotland

Agree it is odds on for Farrell to start, indeed virtually the whole (non-scoring) Saffas backs to do so. I feel conflicted as I want England to win but I want to see certain players taste Murrayfield mud...... I have this feeling that injuries this week will change things a bit. I also think we wil...

Him or Crofty for me. Robshaw is OK, better than Dimmon.

Re: Armitage... again..

The altercation in a nightclub was inevitable, and quite possibly racial. There's a lot of crusties in Devon. Armitage was an idiot for going there (or any nightclub) in the first place, but he was probably looking for local talent, another recipe for disaster. Lancaster is correct, but the rule sho...

Re: Billy's off...

Is that the Bowden who was totally ineffective against Scarlets this weekend?

Re: Sale target George Ford

But it might make more sense for Tigers the CLUB to let him go and buy a competent SH number 10 in (like Bowden?). You no longer have to live with Ford's learning curve. Likewise at centre where the anticipation now I expect is that Forsyth will assume the 12T second fiddle role and a purchase of a ...

Is it irrevocably no longer Rugby Union?

Meditating on the differences between the reffing in the AP (most of the time) and the Pro12 and elsewhere, it now seems clear that the 'contest at the breakdown' is the one the AP sides are losing. Pro12 allows flopping, hands, in at the side, punishes sealing as not releasing by the side in posses...

Re: Billy's off...

The guy has done everything he could to break into the side Except, arguably, been good enough . His reasons for leaving are perfectly understandable, but only time will tell if Tigers are really going to miss much. Even when he's been good enough, that's apparently not been good enough. I am afrai...

Re: Billy's off...

I am really sorry to see him go, but I think he will struggle to get into a Gloucester back division that looks as good as anything in the premiership! If the guy isn't happy, whether it's money or first team opportunities, then he should go. Agree, although I would hold back on the'struggle'. Wait...

Re: Harrison- new contract

I don't think Tigers are falling apart. Just dipping into mild recession stubbornly and with ill grace.

Re: LV against Quins Official Optimistic Thread

And then you read why 12T left (other thread) and you begin to wonder if that will happen.

Re: Billy's off...

So the speculation as to why 12T left which was trashed by some on the forum is shown to be correct and exact - no prospects, and he's not the only one?
