Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

I know this thread is to do with player transfers but just as a matter of interest as I haven't seen or heard anything on the coaching side can anyone tell me if Mike Ford is staying at the club and also is Bakewell and Blake also staying. Thanks An article confirmed they were present for the start...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 1

I think if you change don't need much in terms of wage to cheap squad player then that's pretty much how fringe/championship/world cup bolters are talked about.

Re: World Cup Squads

Having one 8 is dangerous, especially since Vunipola has a long list of injuries, I guess Eddie Jones is expecting Wilson to cover but I would still prefer someone like Morgan. He persevered with Hughes when Billy was last injured so he doesn't really have any tried and tested options to call upon,...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

Are any players now in the development squad likely to feature in the first team this season? More a question if they could fill in if required rather than prominently feature.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

I don't really know much about the 3 players is it fair to summarise as:
Cheaper squad player who will do a job
Greater depth/upgrade in non first choice centre
Significant upgrade on starting back row?

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

We are where we are now. We need some stability and start showing some loyalty again to improve squad morale. So keeping GM with a mentor seems the best option. The issue is really the appointment of MOC but there's not a lot we can do about that now.

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

I don't see what else the club could do to improve the coaching set up(although a new forwards coach would be quite nice). Simples, appoint a proven world class DOR not a totally inexperienced Ex Tiger (now mentored by an Ex Tiger) whose only qualification for the job remains just that. What and re...

Re: Howard to mentor Murphy

It seems sensible to have a period of stability so it makes that Murphy stays. It also seems sensible that because we have some inexperienced coaches we bring in some experience, Ford ticks this box. It's also obvious Murphy lacks experience so it seems very sensible to bring a mentor in. I don't se...

Plus I think PRL have kicked off about releasing players early without compensation?
I think World Rugby put their hands in their pockets and sorted that out.

They did do one. Brad Thorne got yellow carded for an over exuberant tackle on someone from made in Chelsea.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

I also believe that Ben Youngs has lost interest in playing for us. His whole game for us last season was sloppy and half hearted. That was there for all to see. If he can play well for England, then how come he is so awful when playing for us? There is only one conclusion to be made from that! Yes...

Re: ALLEN JOINS COVENTRY

I don't think we've managed to replace him in the team yet either, Toomua for a season maybe. Shows how important he was.
