Did you forget Franklin's Garden - or was it deliberate?

For the clock may soon be still.

Thanks Chris.

This game could be a real banana skin for Tigers. When Glaws run at teams you expect them to score. Don't give them the ball perhaps?

Glaws by loads or Tigers by a few?

Trinder is out with a broken jaw now, so maybe Johnny May will slip into the 13 shirt.

We've got to keep him on a short Matt Smith shaped leash as he can be deadly as he proved against us two or three years ago.

I thought Rupert Harden was from the North East rahter than Australia but I've just checked and he was born in Australia but raised in Cumbria via Rugby School. No surprise that the midlands forward factory is in fact the home of yet another hard working unpretentious young thruster.

Brilliant as usual Chris, just one small point if the Tractor Boys turn up on Saturday they had better bring plenty of TVO as they will be on their own, the game is on Sunday.

Excellent comprehensive preview. You certainly know your Glaws players winking smiley

I know that John. It was a cunning ploy to reduce the Glaws support.

Just trying to get us back our reputation.

You know: "same old Leicester always cheating"

Thanks Chris!

Great analysis - one of your best.


I'm personally looking forward to seeing Sharples and May. For myself I'm confused as to where England could fit May into things despite his evident gifts but how Sharples has not been selected ahead of either of the two incumbent wingers is a mystery beyond my ken.

Also looking forward to seeing another well regarded Tight Head pitch himself against Marcos after he has sent two experienced, quality International opponents away, tails between their legs, in successive weeks!

Quote:
who’s slobbering love affair with him endures and will doubtless endure as long as he continues to use them as a quasi selection committee.

Well said! Well said! Well said!

Quote:
Although when Flood came on his attacking inclination saw the England back line briefly spark into action I remain convinced that the Tigers’ half backs would be better served by returning to their club and working their way back to form instead of remaining to be the Aunt Sallies for the media and others.

Hear! Hear!

Quote:
as he carries the ball in both hands, his opponents are left pondering the options as the twenty-three time capped international straightens or feeds a colleague running either on the angle or against the grain.

Indeed! How did we arrive at a place where this is the exception and not the norm?



...
In my little town
I never meant nothin'
I was just my fathers son
Saving my money
Dreaming of glory
Twitching like a finger
On the trigger of a gun
Leaving nothing but the dead and dying
Back in my little town

Many thanks Chris, when will people realise that match day experience is more about 80 minutes of uncompromising rugby and less about peripheral bling.

In that case Chris I hope it confuses their players as well.

Just another point Tigers are not always cheating these days regrettably.

Always a tasty dish, definitely better served cold

Thanks [again] Chris for heightening the anticipation
