So that's what they are, I thought they were stretch marks. biggest problem with the old days was that after a really good shoeing it was often necessary to replace your studs.
Or at least ask the other chap to pull them out of his leg and give them back.

Re: Geordan Murphy

All the best, Geordie. You've been a superb Tiger and a great part of the club. Sorry to see you go.

(I'm rather surprised as it goes...)

Re: Wigglesworth in!

As hinted at on The Other Thread, my only minor cavil would be "is this where the money needs spending?". Do we need a SH coach? Quite probably - it’s a highly specialised, pivotal position. Can we recruit one having just made one redundant? Probably not. It would not sit well, or possibly even be ...

Re: Wigglesworth in!

As hinted at on The Other Thread, my only minor cavil would be "is this where the money needs spending?". Standard caveats apply, I'm assuming the powers that be know that it is as I have no reason not to do so. I have no qualms about his supposed sins at Sarries. Since names have been mentioned, Ca...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Where's Wigglesworth going to play? Behind Youngs? Behind Youngs and White? Behind Youngs and White and Simmons? I'm happy we're signing a good player, but I think we have, if not an embarrassment of riches at 9, at least a decent showing. Sure he could cover when Youngs is with England, but can't ...

Good point.

So Wiggy behind Youngs and White in your opinion?

Re: Commentators

Talking of Squidge Rugby, there are a few decent youtube channels like Squidge Rugby that make a competent watch. Squidge talks sense but is very quirky in his humour and delivery style, whereas RugbyAnalyst is more normal but still decisive. The best one I have seen historically is The 1014 Rugby ...

Re: Commentators

I enjoy Brian Moore's commentary for it's bluntness and accuracy, I enjoy Eddie Butler's commentary for the accents and every time Teddy Thomas touches the ball the man practically has an intimate personal moment and cries the player's name in a manner that is borderline indecent. If either were re...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

As I think most are, I am gutted for Manu. He was a player I loved watching in Tigers colours, a real legend of the club for me (and I don't say that lightly), he frequently set the game on fire. Others will differ of course, they're wrong. :smt002 I hope he has a swift recovery (as far as is possib...

Re: QF cancelled - Castres forfeit match!

Frankly I think Tigers played brilliantly. A real step up from last week's derby match, and, although the moaning minnies on here will pick apart every error (real or imagined), it's great to see the progress in the team. I think the calls to sack Cockers are totally out of line given the troubled t...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Personally I'm laughing at the moaners. These are dead games! SB has been given a golden opportunity to find out about his players and his coaches (and I expect a small turnover in the next few months). If by next Easter we see no improvement, then moan. I really think none on here have been in a t...

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

Radio Leicester, the Mercury, BT and the national papers need to demand answers from Borthwick over his selection policy and total lack of attacking plan I am in no way disagreeing with you. My thoughts are this: What is the plan? Why: SB is no fool. Coached at the highest level. We've had big chan...
