Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

Post by strawclearer » Mon Nov 16, 2020 7:02 pm

Gloucester's Italy forward Jake Polledri has returned to the Premiership club for a serious knee injury to be assessed.
So - sadly we won't be seeing him at Welford Road. Sadly - we won't be seeing any of them, of course.

Wish him well for what's described as a "significant knee ligament injury".

Hate to see bad injuries wish him all the best!

Fingers crossed tommorow we get a full compliment of players at our training ground!

...football has suffered from a plethora of long term injuries and it will be interesting to see if this is replicated in the rugby bubble!!!

Quite a few questions spring to mind. Are we even back in training ? Who’s fit ? How many coaches have we got left ? Will we have a game plan ?

When the fixtures were announced, I had hope for a home win then at least a losing bonus at the Madjeski. Sadly it can’t see it now.

In the LTTV interview it was stated the following answers to this

Are we even back training? All players are training at home until Today (17th) when those who pass yesterdays Covid test are allowed to train together fully again.

Who's fit? Think they announced who has injuries etc, the results of testing should have been ready in the early hours this morning so I'm hopeful Bondi will share some training ground pics today.

Coaches we still have SB, AW, MF plus academy coaches filling in for Stankovich and Taylor.

SB clearly stated he had a game plan and he and all the team were working out the best way to prepare everyone. Key point will have been who has passed covid tests, once we know that coaches can properly plan what the team may look like.

Given the covid outbreak I think SB has reassured me that we're in a decent position for the first game. Certainly if it is to be assumed that quite a few clubs at some point will have an outbreak at some point then the fact ours may be over before the season is a good thing

Coaching staff at the minute:

Head coach - S Borthwick
Assistant forwards coach - B Deacon
Defence coach - M Ford
Interim attack coach - M Smith
Interim assistant scrum coach - T Harrison

Players we know with long term injuries are Lavanini, Martin, Taufua and Moroni. International call ups are Genge, Mamukashvilli, Youngs, Ford, Nadolo and Murimurivalu. We should get a first look at Brink and Bonilla, I think Weise should be here and past his isolation period as well though don't know if he'll picked straight away.

Back at training today following a clear set of results yesterday

No word yet from Premiership rugby on what happens should you be unable to fulfil a fixture and this guidance apparently not due to be released until Friday - which is shamatuer at best...

Not the best build up for sure.....a win from here would be massive
Less is more....

Let's be honest PRL don't really have a track record of being terribly competent.

After the rather limp last home performance, anything better would be a bonus.

Not terribly optimistic, but a upward trajectory in all aspects would be a minimum for me.
To win is not as important as playing with style!

It's disappointing that we only have one game broadcast on BT sport this side of Christmas (away to LI). They aren't even covering the clash with the Chiefs which I would have thought was a 'must watch' :smt009

BT showing Quins v Chiefs on Friday evening and Wasps v Bristol on Sunday. Poor coverage indeed when folks can't get to see anything live. Pity they can't do saturation coverage like they did to finish off last season. Anything being shown elsewhere? I need to see some competitive games instead of these meaningless internationals lol

Thanks for the heads up; I'll check it out. The Tigers website does not show that the game is covered by BT :smt017

Injuries/COVID results allowing I reckon our best team would be:

1 Gigena
2 T Youngs
3 Cole
4 Green
5 Wells
6 Reffell
7 Wallace
8 Leibenberg
9 White
10 Henry
11 Potter
12 Scott
13 Porter/Taute
14 Van Wyk
15 Steward

16 Laetigaga
17 Heyes
18 Clare
19 Henderson/Chessum
20 Brink
21 Wigglesworth (if fit)
22 Bonilla (if ready)
23 Porter/Taute

Obviously this squad is just my opinion and I’d be tempted to had Aspland-Robinson if fit and maybe Wiese if he’s ready

Not showing on the BT website either, but I'm prepared to believe anything of them. Is it red button time?
