Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Saints sign Nadolo's cousin, Duane Ratu Willemsen. Young and gigantic back row. I was hoping Tigers might take a punt on him! That family has some serious genes. Nemani, Chris Kuridrani, Tevita Kuridrani, Lote Tuquri and now Duane. The signing of former U20 Junior Bok Juarno Augustus (a player I ha...

Re: Tigers vs Exeter - Saturday 18th September 2021 - 1500

Those of us who sit in the middle of the Crumbie (by the press box and the away coaches) can’t sit there for this match and maybe not for ages yet as RFU covid rules say there has to be 2m distance between us and them. The club has been brilliant about it- they are making arrangements for us to mov...

Whether it’s cricket with the hundred, rugby with this nonsense or football with the European super league administrators seem to think that a new cash cow will solve the problems of a badly run game rather than dealing with the causes of their current problems.
Good post.

Re: World Cup every two years?

They will just kill club rugby, The World Cup has to take place at a time that has minimum affect on the Southern Hemisphere and maximum detrimental affect on the leagues of the Northern nations, The Premiership will lose players to the various international tours, the Autumn Internationals and the...

Re: World Cup every two years?

There already is a world Cup ever two years (okay not in this cycle due to Covid), one for the men and one for the women. I’m fed up of all this tinkering, if it ain’t broke… Global calendar, make it easier for the likes of Fekitoa to play for the Pacific Islands teams and more quality investment in...

Re: George Kruis

Will go back to Sarries, two seasons in Japan will have filled the coffers enough that it wouldn’t matter if his old cub could no longer afford or fit his old wage under the cap. TBF I think we are the only "other" club he may come to, Borthwick has been very influential to him over his c...

Is Hogg unavailable? The 10 week break only applies to English players, does it not?

Re: Scarlets visit - Thursday 09th September 2021

The reffing was average Prem standard, I.e holding, blocking and overrunning in best Exeter and Pro14 style was unpunished. Could be crucial next week. All Welsh regions have a magical ability to seal off the breakdown and not get it noticed by any of the officials! Ma’am has officiated several Pre...

Re: Scarlets visit - Thursday 09th September 2021

Well I feel partly to blame for two reasons: 1 - I had forgot to wash my lucky socks between Saturday and this evening 2 - Before I halftime I yelled at the Scarlets in jest to bring on some props who would bother to scrum properly, and they did… Lineout was poor, to me it seems a lifting issue.

Re: The Hundred X Rugby

There would be little need for central contracts (unless for financial reasons) if we had a global calendar.
