DAMN! DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN!!! to paraphraseLord Blackadder, the Path of our title defense is strewn with cowpats from the devil's own satanic herd!! absolutely gutting for the bloke, on form he is by far Englands most dangerous No. 6, barnstorming, pacey, hard as nails. like Mad-eye with a brain.
Never mind the ball, get on with the game!!

Gutted for him. Fantastic player and genuinely nice bloke.

Had the pleasure of him sitting on our table at one of your Director's Experiences during his last lay off.

Just heard it on the 5 live sports news - bummer!!! :smt022 I guess the Tigers will go and find an injury replacement for the season? I wonder if Tom Wood is available? :smt045

Absolutely terrible news, but at least we have Steve Mafi & Gibson to fill in before the possibility of an injury replacement

Absolutely awful news! :smt010 :smt010 So unfortunate for Tom but hopefully with all the support etc. he will make a full recovery!

At least Tigers have Steve Mafi to fill the void, if he's fit, not convinced England have a like for like replacement. Suspect this means Brett Deacon will be given a contract unless the club go for a big name replacement.

Awful news, got to be tough for him after last seasons problems as well. Hope he can recover fully.

When and will this cursed injury jinx ever end? Cruel blow for Tom and the team the known injury list now comprises:- Croft, Manu, BY, TF, Kitchener, Benjamin, Tait, Smith and Camacho.
:smt022 :smt022 :smt022


Furthermore he sustained the injury in his break that culminated in the 4th try. Heavy price to pay for the team collectively switching off for 30mins. Bath have to be favourite now given the sheer amount of injuries we have sustained :smt013
Without hope we are nothing, keep the faith, a Tiger for eternity

So unfortunate for Crofty, hopefully we can sign another Mafi or Salvi from somewhere as an injury dispensation signing. Mafi and Gibson are going to have to have massive seasons if we are to retain our title. Awful news. :smt022
