Sorry?? Not sure what you mean
He’s not very good. Could develop into a decent player but you wouldnt want Williams playing ten in aviva matches.
As long as his kicking is better than George Ford I’ll be happy, anyway lets see how he develops in the Tigers setupPosted 4 years ago

The press always create a headline to get you to read the story
He didn’t moan he only commented that 2 players were played that already had injuries, seeing as they are Leicester players he entitled to have his say…Posted 4 years ago
Did you see the scarlets try? Video ref was asked to check final pass which was ok, but the ref failed to notice that McCusker dropped the ball short of the line!!
I see St Gav is playing for Bath A tonight, a half on the weekend and a start on Monday, that’s a years work for him in less than a week!!Posted 4 years ago
End of the Heine Cup then?
Find it all very frustrating as a fan. Personally i think the English clubs are using the qualification line as an excuse and it is simply all about the money.
I partly agree that there should not be automatic qualification for the HC for both Scotish and Italian teams and that it should be the top 8 Pro12 finishers for example. However in Italy and to a lesser extent Scotland they are trying to grow the game and top level European matches are an important part of that perhaps they should be given another 2 years of automatic qualification and then top 8 to HC bottom 4 to Amlin.
What value is there in a new tournament that does not have all nations represented and is missing either 3 or 5 of the last 8 winners?
I get the impression that there are a couple of pig headed idiots in charge on both sides that won’t yield power or influence and it will ultimately be the fans that suffer as usual.Posted 4 years agoStraightlinerSubscriber
What I would prefer with any new cup competition is to either make it winners of the group, or winners and runners up go through to the next stage. The current arrangement with winners and then the two highest scoring runners up (across all groups) is madness within the structure of a professional sport tournament as it’s completely open to having one of the weak teams in the group and sticking a load of points on them home and away.Posted 4 years ago
Agree Straightliner, plus at present some of the other non qualifiers can drop to the Amlin i dont think that is right either.
4 leagues of 5 play each other H and A winner and RU of each go through, simples.
The current seeding system using the past 8 years performances is a joke as well and has resulted in what appear very uneven groups.Posted 4 years ago
