It's interesting that the African Cup on Nations takes places during the EPL domestic football season. Some teams are deprived of several key players - for example Liverpool are without Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Naby Keita for several matches and Arsenal without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Thomas Partey, Nicolas Pepe, Mohamed Elneny, Omar Rekik. No one seems to be batting an eyelid about this.
It's crazy,Salahs arguably the world's best player and could be the difference between winning the title and finishing second
The best players according to the Balon D'Or regardless of actual evidence are Ronaldo & Messi....wasn't Salah 6th? & we think Rugby has issues.....
Ridiculous mate. Messis just getting it by name now. Great player but lads really into football,I know I know ,and he said Salah was well more deserving. Just for reference lad loves rugby too so he just about gets a pass! 😂👍

Whilst we persist with the current format of the season, losing many internationals for important league games, then I agree the playoffs are the fairest system. But if we could alter the schedules as they do in football, then a simple league system would be much better.

One loss and Barnes is already calling for Tigers to add more to its game.

It’s been what 18 months since we were getting humiliated and already being told to play more exciting rugby, it’s laughable how desperate some of these ex player pundits have been waiting for us to lose.

Borthwick always been adamant that he wants us to become a hard team to beat first and now you got Journalists comparing Tigers to England now.

“there are worrying signs for the Tigers. Their early-season conviction has given way to grinding out results — two-point wins away to Bristol Bears and at home against Harlequins, before that 16-13 loss at Wasps. Connacht also outplayed Leicester for large chunks of their Champions Cup match in the East Midlands last month, despite the 29-23 victory for the Tigers.”

I mean we scored
Quins imo never looked like beating us
3 tries v Bristol in that win away
4 tries v Connacht with no ford


Victims of own success but I can’t believe Barnes is acting like we should be dominating every team already lol even the start of season he fails to mention Sarries should’ve beaten us.

All teams have off days and when affected by international call ups and injuries flash, flowing rugby might be a challenge for many sides in mid winter.
