Re: Matt Toomau

Cockers on Radio Leicester last night said Pietersen will arrive in august after super rugby, but Toomua is contracted to Australia and so will probably arrive in October after the Rugby Championship

Re: 2015/16 Squad/Contracts/Rumours and Transfers Thread Par

Seems a bit odd to leave an announcement so late. Unless the deal sin't completed yet that is

Re: 2016 - 2017 kit

Messed around with arty farty designs for years now. A nice simple kit like the 13/14 one we wore when we last won the final or similar to the cotton trader days would be nice

Re: Next weekend

Thacker looked like he came off with a hand injury so I'd imagine it'd be Bateman starting with Ghiraldini on the bench. Maybe Smith to make a return to replace Manu?

Re: Bad luck or bad business?

O'Connor has played pretty much non stop since the beginning of last season due to ITM cup so I think there was always a risk of injury with fatigue, but he is seen as long term replacement.

Re: Barrow Cited!

Completely agree Iain, that's why I avoided making the comparison at first. I think he has the potential and physical presence to develop other similarities though, other than just having a good swing on him

Re: Barrow Cited!

I see/ hope to see Barrow developing into a legend of the club. He's clearly got a few a few discipline issues at the minute but he will get wiser with experience. He has a massive presence on the pitch and already has leadership qualities at such a young age

In RB's dreams there is a lot of substance :smt003 however it isn't happening and nor will it ever he is off back to Toulon after the 7's rumour has it..

Re: Interesting citing....

Ashton's reputation is always going to haunt him. The challenge was stupid but for me that clip doesn't show him going for the eyes. I hope he doesn't get a lengthy ban because I must be one of the few people who was looking forward to seeing him play for England again, he's been playing very well ...
