I last posted about rugby way back in June, when I thought the season was all over and Leicester Tigers were at the bottom of the table (bar Saracens who were relegated for cheating ). But, I was wrong !
Prime Minister Bodj allowed the season to restart in August and with a new manager – Steve Ballsup – Tigers managed to lose some more games and drop out of Europe.
Stevie decided to give everyone a game and even called up some car park attendants, since there were no cars and no spectators. One of his master strokes was to offload Manu Tuilagi to Sale and save Tigers a lot of money. Not surprisingly Manu got injured after a couple of games and will be off for six months! A familiar story to Tigers fans🤡
Sadly Tigers team of musical chair players and car park attendants still ended up bottom but one in the league at the end of the season in October. But all is not lost yet, there are the play off finals to come. Tigers are not in the finals, but they could be in this strangest of all seasons 🤡
Exeter are due to play Wasps at Twickenham in the Premiership play off Final, but some of the Wasps got stung by Coronapop, so the Old Farts at the RFU have asked Bristol to stand by. But Bristol have just come back from winning the European Challenge Cup in France so they should be quarantined. Stevie has already engaged some no win no fee lawyers to argue our case. That takes us down to Sale who all had Coronapop last week and an injured Manu, so obviously they can’t play. Then there is Northampton who were the super spreaders who gave Coronapop to Sale, so they should be disqualified for unfair play.
Just a few more outbreaks of Coronapop amongst the other teams and Tigers car park attendants could be in the Final.
Well done Stevie ! What a turnaround !
