There have been so many ‘Top 10s of this and that’ around in the absence of any live sporting action that The Tig has now assembled a list of Tigers Top 10s - and we are not talking fly-half here.
Such has been the outbreak of chart-sized features, The Tig was going to pick a ‘Top 10 of Top 10s’ for the blog this week. Instead, rather than talk about the greatest games, players and tries, this list of Top 10s puts the focus more on individuals, the characteristics of favourite players, the emotions of the big games and the split-seconds which can win or lose them.
It’ll take a while to populate them all, but at least the headlines are sorted.
No doubt this includes some of your favourites too - if it doesn’t, how about adding them on the Tigers social media to share with everyone else?
So here goes:
