If we do jg we do,it's our own fault. It's always been in our own hands so tough! It is what it is
It’s not the supporters fault though and we will hurt the most, watching other clubs dismantling our team, taking away our best players. It will be the end for our club, if/when they go up, they will always be fighting relegation battles. IMHO. What a horrible thought.

Tigers being in this situation is just as surreal as the foxes winning the Premier League title.

Not that I think it will happen but it wouldn't be the end of us. Quins and Saints have been down and bounced back up in recent memory, and we have a much bigger following and firmer financial footing than they did.

It's not our fault but when you choose a club to support, the only thing you can do is support. We can't change things.

Why will other clubs take our players when they are all in contract and as I understand, none have a relegation release clause (except for Ford)?

Is there a link to that interview? Les is a very wise man, and am sure he didn't mince his words.

Sorry, but I agree that relegation will seriously damage the long term future of the club. Saints and Quins had rich backers, Tigers has made a loss for the last two years: wasn’t it a million last season? Could be wrong but losses made.
We need to do the job on the pitch as it’s in our hands.

I wish Newcastle did need ten points. It would make me feel much, much happier!

Lets go all out attack, score some tries, get the bonus points. Yes quins will score tries as well but if we get 4 tries and Newcastle don't get 5 points at Gloucs then we're safe. If we keep it close and get a loosing bp as well then we're safe no matter what. Just go for it!!

This is probably the reason i'm not a rugby coach, but it could be fun to watch....

Oh goodie, Quins have some of their best players returning to the squad that ran Chiefs close last week. Almost glad it's in London on a Friday so I can't be there to watch, not sure my nerves could stand it, Dombrandt and Marchant are going to walk through our non-existent defence.

On paper a team that should at least get a bonus point. Unfortunately, not played on paper. Will be well pleased with a LBP and a TBP.

You know the routine, suddenly find Scarlets want him or Bristol. Scores a hat-trick against us at home next season.
