And obviously, winning it gets you into the Heineken the year after.


But Tigers won't need that. We'll qualify automatically via the league. Maybe even as champions :smt002 :smt003
Now we know where Ellis9 went to ? :smt003

Biffer used to be quite a critical voice, now he seems positively optimistic. I'd like to know who the new coach is, assuming Ford is staying for me to be vaguely optimistic about Europe.

I'd be more optimistic if the team I supported seemed like it was on an upward journey with a decent coach who has a plan :smt002

It may be just me, but I don't give a monkey's... about this cup. Next season we must be fully focused on the league and I'd use this competition like the other cup to develop new talent, bring in those returning from injury and give those that need it a rest (especially the internationals).

Part of me agrees with you about taking the Challenge Cup as a competition of lesser importance, but if Tigers advance from their pool the temptation to bring in first choice players for the knock-out stages may be strong.

Just to keep you calm, I didn't say we'd win it. Somebody else screwed up quote function. Either that or someone (you know who you are) has been editing my posts on the fly again...

Biffer I think that was me and it was a genuine piece of incompetence of IT skills. I wrote a reply and then immediately decided to edit it by adding a smiley face but somehow managed to mess it up by the looks of it. Just wanted to clarify and apologies to all.
