This post follows my earlier post about the impact of Coronavirus on the Rugby world and my once excellent all winning team Leicester Tigers.
They have not been playing well all season ,,,, dropping the 🏉 …… not catching the 🏉 …… missing tackles …. missing through injury …. missing through endless International matches. It’s not been a good season so far☹️ I think the players might have had Coronavirus for some time, possibly for several seasons !
The old buffers at the Rugby Football Union have called a “temporary” halt to the season which could last until April. No mention of wether they ment April 2020 or April 2021 or just sometime in the distant future. They have sent our International players back. Unfortunately half of them are injured and the other half have to go into quarantine ☹️
That’s the bad news, but, there is some good news to brighten up the loyal fans. Our excellent ever optimistic coach, Jordan Murphy has been thinking out of the box to come up with a recovery plan. He has recruited some new players from South Africa and New Zealand where Coronavirus hasn’t taken hold yet. He has just got to figure out how to get them over here now there are no plane flights. Rumour has is he is also looking at China, so we can get a few more players with unpronounceable names into the starting line up 🤡
Jordan is adamant that next weeks game against top of the table Exeter Chiefs will still go ahead. “If Exeter don’t turn up we should win and get a bonus point ! ” said Jordan in a rousing team talk to each player individually, now that they are not allowed to gather in groups. They also haven’t been able to train together because of the Governments new rules on social distancing.
