10 questions as the new season approaches

Post by MrPartridge » Fri Aug 26, 2016 9:36 am

Looking forward to the friendly tonight, but here are the 10 questions I'm focusing on:

1. Who is best equipped to play number 8?
2. Who is our best 10?
3. Who is our best 15?
4. How will Will Evans perform this year?
5. Is Manu a superstar or an injury liability?
6. How do we get the best out of Ed Slater?
7. How do we get the best out of Harry Thacker?
8. Are Ayerza, Cole and Croft on the slide?
9. Which of the new signings/development players will have the biggest impact?
10. Can we sell the stadium out more than 2/3 times?

Any thoughts re: above... or burning questions of your own?

1. It should be Williams, Evans and O'Connor at 8 but Cockers wont have the guts and will keep O'Connor at 7 and McCaffrey at 8.

2. Burns

3. Veainu. Tait is doing an Ugo monye and conning a salary out of Tigers this year, way past it.

4. Well if he gets enough game time or we could lose him

5. 12 months ago I would have said superstar, now I'm verging towards injury liability but I hope I'm wrong

6. By putting him on the bench

7. By releasing him

8. Cole is still top draw, Ayerza and Croft have seen their best days

9. Toomua if he stays fit

10. Possibly, depends if 4-8 are competitive enough in the league and Europe this year

1. How many times this season will people moan about not kicking off at 3pm on a Saturday?
2. After how many games will certain people be wanting Cockerill out?
3. When will people realise we are no longer in the amateur days?
4. Will people now miss kick off as Tigers now only open the turnstiles 90 minutes before?

1. & 2. - @ every possible opportunity.
3. Never
4. Probably not but it won't stop people moaning about. But look on the bright side if people are chuntering about 1.,2. or 3. at least it means things are going OK on the pitch!

Now mid-October... Are we any wiser?

Always thought getting rid of legitimate number 8s would bite us!
