English Premiership 2021/2022

Post by tigerburnie »

Coming to the end of the year and looking at the premiership table it makes for some odd reading, both surprised and pleased to see the Tigers unbeaten at the top, happy days, but we do have some tough away trips in the new year to burst the bubble. Wins at home over Exeter, Saracens, Harlequins and Sale will do nicely though and the away wins at Gloucester, Wasps, Northampton, Worcester and an improving London Irish should see us there or there about's come the pay offs at the end of the season.
Looking at the league Barf, Bristol and Sale the bottom three is surprising as was Exeters lousy start to the season, sure it will all change when the 6 nations hits clubs player availability, but with a truck load of South Africans and some fine academy prospects shining, I am confident we can do better than last years 6th place.

I wasn't expecting our "yoof" team to win the Champions Cup today, but now we might as well go for a league and cup double lol.

Bristol doing an "Ulster" today. Ball in hand, 3 points ahead, let's kick it to Leicester and see if they can score a winning try.

And, oh, they did

Van Graan has some job on his hands at Bath, they are a shambles currently. Very fortunate there is no relegation this season.

Bristol had several players on loan from Saracens last season, obviously they left when Saracens came back up.

Read on Twitter that there may be another salary cap breach at a current top 6 side who aren't Saracens. The other 5 are Tigers, Exeter, Saints, Gloucester & Quins.

EXCLUSIVE: Leicester Tigers are at the centre of a Premiership Rugby salary cap inquiry into a defunct image rights company and allegations of historic third party player payments.

the clubs response is relying heavily on the "historical" aspect of the allegations.

Well in this part of the world, we know how irrelevant that will be !!!!

"The guilty parties must be identified ,and no matter how historical, must held to account "

Well, maybe not everybody!!................... :stir: :stir: :stir:

No reason yet to change my support for the club of the town where I was born, educated, worked, married and started my family. If you refer to the investigation, I will wait and see what the outcome is, the club may well be punished if they have done wrong, still my home town club. I do have an affection for Ireland, spent some great times there, north and south of the border on fishing/beer drinking trips, hope to visit again, but not requiring refugee status just yet lol.

Remarkable for a man who was going back to New Zealand when he left Ulster in 2014, money talks😉

New stat ( or new to me)....how many times had the team in possession managed 5 or more phases with the ball. In Quins v Gloucester, 6 to 1 ( Gloucester single effort in the 79th minute).
Any of the statisticians on here give any credence to this measuere,........And what would UR average be?
( ignoring kick aways!! In which case our average is about 0.4)!!
