Re: London Irish Away

Stupid I know but I was so frustrated with game that a basic malfunction on my phone made me snap it in half.
I have never turned a match off 5 minutes before the end either, normally not such a bad loser.

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

On a purely superficial note, I think the new kit looked really smart on Saturday.

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

Only one game I know. But it is the first time in two / three years that Tigers have looked fitter than the opposition. Almost any opposition. The players actually seemed to be playing 'for' each other . Again, the first time there has been any semblance of 'team' in the last couple of years. Final...

Re: Freddie Steward

I thought he had a great game and I have been impressed every time I’ve seen him in a Tigers shirt. Unlike some of the other academy graduates I always get a sense of confidence when I see his name on the team sheet. On that note (sorry to digress a little) I notice how some of the other recently ac...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

Finally some competition for places. Wigglesworth had an outstanding debut and Henry was impressive once again.. best half back pairing during the international break for ages.. Bonilla will fight it out with Henry no doubt and both look class. And that back row.. Liebenberg, Taufua, Wiese, Brink, ...

Re: Borthwick

I don’t care if people perceive Borthwick to have charisma or not, he certainly seems to have the respect of his players and is excellent at communicating his ideas. He is a leader and is willing to try new things - one simple example is his trademark use of a step ladder to evaluate lineout throws....

Re: Predictions 20-21

At this stage you would have to say anything other than relegation represents progress. You really would expect the club to aim for 6th as a minimum. Given how close it can be at the bottom, any lower wouldn’t represent much in the way of green shoots for me. I like what I have seen from a number of...

Re: DoR?

Professional sport is funny in that it causes grown men, women and non-binary folk get all worked up over events that they have no control over and make personal attacks on people they have never met. Murphy’s record as head coach in terms of results was terrible, nobody in the right mind would ques...

Good chance he’ll be picked in the next EPS as an apprentice player! Pity Martin picked up his injury as he may have been a shoe in too.
I was mightily impressed by Martin, it was a huge shame to see him get injured.

Re: Team vs Saints

For the first time in years I am seeing positives all around the team, some players are growing in stature every time they take to the field - I hope Steward gets a decent run at fullback for example. It does feel like once the full squad is available and the fixture schedule allows for more consist...

Re: A new defence coach?

Mike Ford is a proven world-class defence coach, who I would replace him?? He has had precious little time to make an impact on the team, regardless of the team selection carousel that has been forced on the club by the congested schedule. I felt a Little bit bit sick after watching the game yesterd...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

I applaud those folks who think that that after 5 season of terminal decline, finishing 11th last season and now only saved from relegation by Saracens transgressions, that Tigers still need somehow need to continue to learn from mistakes and defeats :smt017 Its as if upto now we have not been maki...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

I always thought that the 0-45 capitulation against Bath a few years back would be the worst game I’d ever see Tigers play. That was a dark day but it was unexpected and although the team was already in decline back then, the rest of that season almost seems like golden days compared to Murphy’s rei...

Re: Leicester Tigers Ultras - Matt To'omua

Matt To’omua is an incredibly likeable chap and is undoubtedly a class rugby player. Some people love him and think he was great here and other people think he was a flop. I tend to lean towards the latter, despite wanting to believe otherwise. He was absolutely fantastic for a few games but if you ...

Re: New Kit

I had no idea there was anything wrong with Umbro, how long has this been a thing? Is it simply the view of materialistic snobs with nothing else of consequence to occupy their time or is it the quality of Umbro kit suddenly terrible?
