Sale Game

Post by owen99 » Sun Aug 27, 2006 7:02 pm

How confident are people that we can get off to a good start on sunday? Couldnt pick tougher opposition but playing them first up and home got to be a good thing. I would imagine Tigers will really be up for this one both in terms of laying down a marker for the season and the fact its Sale and the horrid memories of Twickers in May.

I would always back us at home against anyone. Sale is a very tough start but we have had all summer to stew over the embarrasment that Sale dished out to us at Twickenham, and the players will want to settle a score. Plus we always seem to play very well in the first game of the season.

It'll be tight, but i think leicester will win. Should be a good game

I think it will be a great game and anything can be better than twickers. Just changing the subject i am a big fan of jason robinson but the tiger boys will be the best people on the pitch

1st (premiership) match of the season results:

01/02 - lost at Newcastle.
02/03 - lost at Leeds.
03/04 - won (home to Irish).
04/05 - lost at Sale.
05/06 - won (home to Saints).

Makes you glad we are at home, doesn't it ?!

Now I was going to challenge Iain's assertion. I was at Headingly in 2002 - but discretion lead me to merely assert a positive!!!

WE ARE AT HOME!!!

FORTRESS WELFORD ROAD!!!

I won't be surprised if Sale win! I'll be delighted if the Tigers get off to the good start we need. :lol:

In fact, you hit the "burgundy" or whatever they call it that the away shirt is trimmed with. It's a conspiracy. :shock:
