Re: Challenge Cup

We will believe all our Christmases have come at once when the new signings are announced, pre-season will be productive and injury free and we shall win the premiership.

What a mental season, we've only played about half an hour of decent rugby and we're only 6 points off Europe.
Realistically 8 pts off due to our vastly inferior points difference.

Re: Tigers v Newcastle - 12th April 2019

Given results this year it is not surprising that we were a little anxious after they scored but at the end the team dug in and toughed it out. Great nerve and a good performance by all. George Ford and Guy Thompson co-captains. Yes indeed.

Re: Guy Thompson

Immense. We have been critical of some signings but however signed Guy then take a bow alongside him. A leader and a real Tiger.

Re: Tigers v Chiefs

Relegated and ring fenced out of the premiership. Nice bit of development real estate next to a hotel?

Re: Tigers v Chiefs

I'm not confident the current BoD have the capabilities to resolve our issues or have really accepted them.

Re: Clarification please.........and a few thoughts on yesterday

But refereeing to the laws of the game would ruin the 'spectacle'. Tis after all no longer just a game but an 'entertainment'

Re: Mike Ford is joining/WRU block Edwards bid/Glynn getting sacked

We are in a relegation battle, Mike Ford is a hugely experienced coach available and it would seem he and Geordan are happy working together. What's not to like. I'll take anything that sees us finish above 12th.

Very interesting interview from Burns.

Hats off to the guy, seems a sound bloke who loved playing for the Tigers. Plus he played his best rugby of his career at Welford Road.
For me the moment when the spirit died.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 6

I would welcome anyone who can inject some confidence into both coaches and players. If that is an old head for GM to bounce ideas off and get back some validation of approach then great.

What we need at the moment is quiet. Let Geordan get on with the job, ensure continuity, have faith in what we have. It's going to take a few years for us to start to make an impact again. What we don't need is further instability.
I would add the 'instability' of a first rate DOR.

Reported on facebook tiger group that Mike Ford and Geordan were in the local hero together studying over a laptop for some time yesterday and then left together - read into that what you will
We need all the help we can get.
