George Ford a serious talent

Post by robwatts77 » Mon Nov 09, 2009 9:22 pm

I was just wondering if anybody else knew about our flyhalfs debut on Sunday against Leeds? He made is debut against his brother also a 10 and the son of Mike ford!

Another think just to mention he is only 16 and became the youngest player ever to make a professional debut! Hats off! And watch this space!

His brother Joe, unfortunately got the better of him on Sunday. But with 2-3 years extra experience, it isnt a massive surprise.

Both could really turn out to be something special.

Tonks and Hurrell also seemed to have good games. Not to mention the likes of Green, Hemingway, Manu and Forsythe.

That's why 4 academy places were given up to get him. The 1/2 back situation for England is looking very good with Youngs, Simpson, Clegg, Millar and both Ford boys.
The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach

Yes until the England coaches get their hands on them.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

Impressive! But he's up against it with the likes of Heather Watson, Eleanor Simmonds and Tom Daley having pretty high profiles thanks to the press.

I went to the game on sunday , never saw Manu or Callum and for me Tom Armes at 8 had one of the better games.

"That's why 4 academy places were given up to get him."


did Tigers have to pay a transfer fee to secure his services then?
