What was with the melee in the first half….seemed like Higgins and broad toe to toe.
and then later Higgins took Floss’ legs out from under him…..hmmm the talk about him not being popular seems to have legs.
You don't often see Broady get worked up like that.....he looked pretty angry with Missy, wonder if Higgins had a pop at him?

Higgins is not popular with the Tigers.

He left under acrimonius circumstances and the boys didnt take it too well, he is not afforded anywhere near the time or respect given to Butler.

I said in another thread, the lack of embrace for Higgins let us down. No doubt he'd be playing right now but he didn't want to buy in. After all we game him through his grief. *smile* him.

There were certain rumours circulating a while back and one of the most popular players retired. Just maybe there was something in that.

It’s safe to say Higgins is not very popular with the RFC.

He did. Broad had just spilled a mark and it slipped through and they kicked a goal. Higgins ran past him and gave him a clip I think around the head, may well have said something too as broad reacted very strongly. Higgins clearly not liked by his ex-teammates. Clearly something went on there with him.

Doesn't sound like the rumours that were circulated would make them so negative towards Higgo. If another player had slept his g/f then they'd be behind Higgo, clearly its the opposite.

Something clearly went on and some bad blood has been spilt there. It could be as simple as, the club stuck with him through all the brain surgeries etc, and as soon as he had the chance to jump ship, he didn't try and repay the club, decided he wanted to leave whether he had a contract or not. Maybe the players see him as a deserter.

Has copped a flogging for his selfish play over the weekend which burnt Gresham. Kicked 4 behinds too. Plenty of calls for him to be dropped this week. It's sure not working out for Higgo as he'd planned.

That burn of Gresham was diabolical. Typical of the selfish way he plays. He's really not that good a player.
