Smithy is already in the middle of his testimonial year along with Tom Croft I believe.

Did you miss 'Ladies' night?

Hope that's gentle enough for you!

Very gentle thanks and the wife thanks you for the name check

Apparently there was some gender ambiguity on 'Ladies night' too, judging by the pictures I saw....

Four sets of brilliant news yesterday- the starting backline and squad depth in the backs is going to be brilliant next year! And it may be a bit like Sarries for my liking but I am enjoying the #MagicMondays... To think that Mat Tait could well be on the bench when all the options are fit and available is just startling!

Sonny Bill is not going to be on the bench again is he? :smt003

I for one will be sad if Benjamin goes thought he was going to be a great player for us for years when we signed him, just very unfortunate with injuries sometimes a change of scenery is needed.

Any news on a hooker??

No news, but we were reportedly after McGuigan, the Falcon's hooker.

Given our current back and 2nd row options and they way they have been playing I'm not sure he would get into the team!
Tigers for the premiership and European Cup. Get behind the team and make some noise!!
