We miss you more with every day

So what do you miss most about the lack of matchdays currently? The Tig has been compiling a personal list in the form of an Ode to Matchday.

 

What we all miss most

Match day, home or away

Scarf and hat, pre-match chat

Green white and red, all born and bred

Saturday dawns, excitement forms

Welcome the team, man behind me scream

Big match warm-up, Quarter-final in the Cup

Pre-match nerves, Telusa swerves

Tom and Ben, Ellis Genge

Expectation, adulation

First scrum, crowd hum

The tackle, the jackal

Hit hard, yellow card

Drop goal, mauling roll

Forwards push, wingers rush

Knock-on gaffe, supporters laugh

Whistle blows, the ref knows

Manu in flight, A Good Good Night

Club song, all day long

Players huddle, TMO muddle

Hear the crowd, Tigers loud

Off the line too quick, Fordy adds the kick

Jonny try, rivals cry

Ball is on the ground, we say touchdown

Something in the way, big screen replay

Tigers score, mighty roar

Win, lose, or draw

Re-set waits, old mates

Mighty roar, wins once more

The cheers, the tears

(And the beers)

Covid-19, never before seen

Missing Tigers Family all, denied our common call

Till we met again, who knows exactly when

Together at heart, safe-distancing apart
