I have a friend who is a West Ham supporter that says the Tottenham pit is a great big bowling green surface, perfect for fast, expansive rugby. Stay tight, simple and strong in the middle (with and without the ball) for the first 20, and stay on the right side of the penalty count, and we can do this. Totally agree that 4 props and Ipape of the bench is a must. Also Inu with his right boots on has to play.
First game was in 1967, and have been hooked since day 1. Now live in Vancouver, Canada but follow our team any way I can.

Vancouver, i could not agree with you more. Inu is a cert to start. He adds size and power on the wing and has the experience of playing in big games. He is also quite calming in his demeanour. All the right qualities for when cooler heads are required. Of course, he is also our main kicker. Yes, he missed virtually everything yesterday but that has been the only game his kicking radar has been off. At Tottenham on Saturday he plays and i bet he kicks everything.

Nice try, but the pitch at Post Office Road is 68m wide ie maximum width..

Mark Kheirallah can expect a barrage of high balls, which was the weakness that Featherstone highlighted in Toulouse last season.


Can you expand on that? Who showed a weakness under high balls in Toulouse last season?

Last season Featherstone got battered by Toulouse in the first half of the Championship Grand Final. Fev made a good fist of a recovery by putting pressure on the fullback, Fev then signed him 5 months later knowing his biggest weakness..

Kheirallah will be targeted and besides Leigh half got some tall lads out wide.

I like Kheirallah, but I would rather have Aekins.

I remember Kheirallah dropping one in the final but he's usually sound enough under the high ball, I'd be more concerned about the wide kicks. As an aside, I also remember Aekins being like a rabbit in the headlights under the high ball at Post Office Road this year, to the extent that the Premier Sports summarisers were saying he didn't want to know. I certainly wouldn't swap full backs.

Jack, a quick perusal of wikipedia reveals, if correct, that the ground dimensions at Tottenham are 105m x 68m. The pitch dimensions are described as a 'standard size' and it is precisely the same size of pitch as both Old Trafford and Wembley..

Hopefully, no worries then. At least we are not playing on a mini rugby pitch such as that disgrace of a pitch, and ground, at Odsall. In this respect i am paraphrasing the recent comments of the York coach. Perhaps he was a bit more polite about it but it was the same sentiment and we all knew what he actually meant.



need to factor in both in goals though in the 105m length.... so i suspect it will be a little shorter than LSV
