Re: Saintly types vs Evil Tiggers Saturday 3.15 BTSports

7 points in a 5 point match is entirely significant. Before his injury Foden was renowned as one of the best cover defenders in the premiership, if you want to talk about statistics. I won't disagree that his kicking isn't the best, but he's certainly a good fullback despite that. Don't be obtuse y...

Re: Saintly types vs Evil Tiggers Saturday 3.15 BTSports

Foden is playing terribly. :( He's had a couple of bad kicks but he's gone well with ball in hand. Made the try, really. Yeah: but it's the epitome of why he is not a FB (like Dulin). He is a counter attacker............ errr.... and that's it. Poor positioning in defence, average under high ball (...

I think the bad run started with that semi-final where Ashton got a yellow card for being punched in the face. The next game featured the Tuilagi strop and Wood's amateur boxing hour, ending with Geordan Murphy's one-legged 'intervention' to prevent Foden's covering tackle for the winning try. The g...

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

I think Sale may have had a bit to do with the win myself... More or less locked you out of the scrum, a generally solid source of front foot ball for saints. Dominated the breakdown with Braid and Seymour (Braid is a beast). Cips had a few perfect touches. Sale caught you with your pants down a fe...

Garvey is going very well indeed, but our problem is a lack of fast backrow, and Garvey doesn't strike me as quick. Since when has that been our problem?

That was astonishing by Exeter. Haven't seen Saints beaten up physically like that all season. Well deserved Chiefs fans (are there any on here?).

Hopefully Myler and the others will be back next week, just a few big players too short to compete with a fast, fired up Exeter at home.

Re: LV Cup Final - Exeter vs Saints, Sunday SS2 2.30pm

Alex Waller scrimmaging at a horrible angle, practically Jenkins-esque It starts off straight but Tui is buckling in and up in the half of the scrums that Exeter are losing. Tui stays square, Waller 's hips are at 45 degrees at least. Of course Tui will buckle. Not sure I agree with your assessment...
