Re: Tigers v Warriors

Tom Youngs, throw in on our 10m line defensive lineout is overthrown, caught by Worcester and a try is immediately conceded. Johnny May with minutes left on the clock, instead of hoofing the ball into touch from the Worcester restart, he decides its better to do his headless chicken cross pitch run...

Re: Tigers v Warriors

I find your predicament worrying, I’m pretty sure last season Worcester where down in the dumps then won with a bonus point in probably one of the most direst performances I’ve ever seen from a Tigers side. We need to go into the match eager to not replicate the mistakes of last year, play what’s i...

Re: Tigers v Falcons

TBF Thompstone is reliable. smaller pitch so speed won't be that much a thing for him. Also understandable why Murphy wouldn't want to change too much in his first game in charge. Thompstone is a good player who's been a loyal servant. But IMO Holmes is a more natural try scorer, runs better suppor...

After the first game acceptable would be showing some progress and avoiding relegation.
So you’d keep Murphy on if Tigers finished 11th?

Re: Heineken cup draw

Pool One: Leinster; Wasps; Toulouse; Bath. Pool Two: Castres; Exeter; Munster; Gloucester. Pool Three: Saracens; Glasgow; Lyon; Cardiff Blues. Pool Four: Scarlets; Racing 92; TIGERS; Ulster. Pool Five: Montpellier; Newcastle; Edinburgh; Toulon. No easy games. Saracens possibly the most fortunate. E...

Re: Well done Wayne Barnes and Sarries

Out of interest as the chap who reffed our home game against Worcester been let loose to control another top flight game since? His performance that afternoon was without doubt the worst performance I've ever witnessed from a so called top flight official in any sport.

Re: Holmes

At premiership level the passing skills of the 10,12,13 is generally pretty good off both hands 😀. I’d agree with flankers theory a few levels further down the leagues.

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

The fairness of the result though is irrelevent. As I've said, we were poor against a very average side and therefore my sympathy for us is minimal. That said a similar decision to what I've just witnessed could decide a final, although the severity of the decision just made isn't insignificant anyw...

Make no mistake we were poor. We don't deserve much. However that last decision is a farce. Rugby is a loser for that joke of a decision

Re: Tigers v Newcastle Falcons

George Ford's running game or lack of it as been a real diassapointment to me this season. I remember when we first lost him to Bath I'd loved his ability to make breaks and play what he saw. He'd not been at Bath long and scored a magic try from about 40yards and I thought how much we'd miss that t...

Re: Tigers v Saints predictions

The only consistency in Saints’ season is that after each thumping they have bounced back with some impressive victories. Having supported Tigers home and away for 50 + years I have seen some real upsets caused by us v Saints like them taking our amazing unbeaten home record in the season they got ...

Re: Tigers v Saints predictions

Matthew Carley and Antony Cotton are the same person. Never been seen in the same room. Both muppets! http://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2018-01-21/who-is-antony-cotton-dancing-on-ice-2018-contestant-profile/ As for the score... Saints are awful as Saracens and many others have highlighted. It is al...

Re: Ben's back!

I'm not sure about Simmons making much of a positive impact from the bench. He's merely come on in the dying stages and barely been noticeable apart from one poor kick into touch. Harrison has been running himself into the ground lately due to not having a proven replacement and long term that would...

Re: Shazam

For me both Sam and Matt Smith offer us massive value for money. I'm led to believe neither are on the type of wage a similar quality of player brought into replace them would cost us. Both showed their value to the club last week and Harrison in particular has really been brilliant for us in recent...

Re: Tigers v Saints predictions

What's poster thoughts on BY? Start or bench if fit,should be latter for me. Bench for me. Harrison has done really well last 2 games especially. A fit Ben Youngs coming on after 60 minutes will cause them nightmares I agree with that. What an impact replacement he would be for the last quarter. Ha...
