He would have been better than MOC.

Have you seen Leinster recently?, and watched Tigers in the same period?.

But 2 wrongs don't make a right do they?

It feels to me that rugby has become somewhat secondary at Tigers. If Murphy is given the entire season “unless the wheels totally come off!”, what does that say about our expectations? It’s ok to finish fifth again?! WTF!!! We are Tigers. The leading light of English rugby. When did it ever become ok to finish anywhere other than first.
This is not meant to be anti Murphy. I love him. It is anti Tigers board. There is no clear rugby plan just bloody trial and error. Sacking the head coach after 1 game is embarrassing. The position of the exec should be untenable. I think we will continue to drift until there are positive changes at the very top.
That said, I know that Murphy will give it his best and he will always have my complete support.

Glad that you will remember. Will be nice to be proven correct.
Can’t be nice to be so untrusting though! Go on. Take me on my word. You may well start to enjoy life a little more 👍

I don't think MOC was sacked after one game. His final game was the final straw. You can imagine his bosses saying something like "bit of a strange pre-season that? Hope it works but if it doesn't we'll know you've lost the plot and you'll be on your way."

I have to say this pretty much nails it:

Now that is amusing. Thanks for a larf first thing on a dull wet Wednesday.

You're not wrong about the drift and the Board's responsibility for it, though. I'm in the camp that traces a lot of that down to the loss of Peter Wheeler, influence.
