Heineken Cup 2021/22 Other Sides

Post by Neill_M »

Bordeaux v Tigers could be one of the games of the weekend. Leaders of T14 v Leaders of Premiership.

Not sure how we will approach this, will Borthwick rotate players or go for it, I don't mind either way if I'm honest, this Tigers side is still building and this year the league is where we need to be concentrating.

Cracking game on paper.

Bordeaux have looked very strong.

Castres v Quins could be good too.

A rotated Tigers side, makes perfect sense away in a competition we are not yet likely to win, next year I will expect a different approach, going for the win in every game, this is perfect experience for some youngsters to see how they stack up, but with enough good players to pull off a win if the home side are slacking.

Wow Saints were shocking. Only problem is they have to go to Disco Arena in January and will target Ulster games for points. Can't play that bad two weeks in a row.

14 - 45. A bit of a thumping for the Saints and from a French side playing away!

If we turn up next week then we’ve a good chance of playing a weakened side at their place.

Whether we’ll be allowed to go and watch remains to be seen….

Decent showing by the Cardiff scratch team only losing 39-7 to defending champions Toulouse.

Heroic stuff from Cardiff, result on the score board doesn't really matter. Between academy kids, a school teacher at hooker they put on a real show.

Rugby the winner at Cardiff Arms Park.

Beat me to it Neill, very entertaining. Felt very sorry for the young 15 being shown red towards the end.

Well the Tigers cubs did us proud, that's a good win on the road, Connacht at Welford Road next week.
Good luck tonight.
