I’m so ridiculously happy that Tigers finally won the Premiership again, it’s been a long two years of finals comming second before this glorious moment. I’m so proud of them, especially that we were able to give Murphy and Castro a champions send-off :)
I can’t help feeling there is a Floody shaped gap in all these Lions photos :( Why did Gatland disregard the best halfback partnership in Britain?
I now feel like Toben is a cult, and that George Chuter is the leader
It’s as if Ben reads the sports section of the newspaper or watches the Quins highlights and sees Care scoring, and thinks: hmmm, gotta match that. and then he goes and spoils us Tigers fans and scores two tries… Moral of the story is: whatever Care can do, Ben can do better :)
I am so pleased for the Tigers, they very much deserved their victory yesterday. First up, loved Floody as captain, nailed it (and his goals). 2ndly, Crofty and Parling and Manu have definitely put their hands up for the Lions. 3rdly, good to see B. Youngs not getting wound up by Dickson- showed his growing maturity. 4thly, great to see all of the team getting involved. Finally, lovely too see them all looking so happy :)
the Leicester Tigers who have 7 players in the England team:
Floody and T. Youngs returning to the XV which also includes Cole, Parling and Manu. Also on the bench are B. Youngs (why isn’t he starting?!) and Crofty!
And Castro’s obviously in team Italia!
