Re: Come off if injured.

Haha It wasn't really suppose to turn into a how good Thacker thing. It was should players come off if they are limping around when we have a perfectly good replacement? And Ourla, I don't care if he's captain surely there are other players on field that can make decisions as was seen when he eventu...

Re: Come off if injured.

Okay in case you didn't notice I was talking specific about Thacker and Youngs and Thacker was better. And really Harrison didn't get enough game time to make much difference. Thacker came on and actually started to give us front foot ball and then the rest of the forwards played better making good ...

Re: Come off if injured.

The two clean line breaks he made and all the other meters he made with his carrying... Or did you not watch him play? He played a hell of a lot better than Young's did

Come off if injured.

There was a point in second half when Tom Young's got injured, medic came over and wanted him to come off but he refused and then limped away, clearly injured. I get wanting to continue and playing through, but at professional level with a more than capable replacement is it really acceptable to dam...

Re: Leicester Tigers 2016/17 Squad/Transfers/Contract thread

Sam Yawayawa ---> Scottish Rugby Academy contract. http://www.scottishrugby.org/news/17/05/23/latest-intake-top-young-talent-confirmed Shame I rated him, BUT it makes sense for him to make this move if he has eyes on playing international rugby in the long term Scotland is will be easier to break i...

Re: Only 2 Tigers in England 23

What do you really expect? Other teams are playing better than Tigers, they will have more players in the team. Its not like 15 years ago we aren't dominating now so I really think 2 is good enough considering our performances.

Genge unlucky not to be on bench though.

Re: Dam Drums during play!!

I wasn't there yesterday but was at games last season when they were there and found them extremely annoying. They always do it during parts of game when you don't want that going on. Its very annoying they don't do the right sort of drumming to create the atmosphere, its just annoying.

Re: "Captain?" Tom Youngs report.

IMO, captaincy is not for him. He is no where near the player of 4 years ago that saw cement a Lions place. He should step down and focus on his form etc and bring back Slater as skip. Remember, there was a whisper that Slater could be a future England captain when he lead the midweek side in NZ be...

Re: We need to invest more money in the team!

Isn't this topic a pointless one if I am right in assuming Leicester do spend up to the salary cap! Spongebob did specify better coaches/equipment in the OP. I don't know about a supercoach or DOR but there may certainly be room to improve the existing infrastructure and coaching team. Hey if there...

Re: We need to invest more money in the team!

Can I just point out I never said a thing about needing new players. The players we have SHOULD be good enough! What we actually need is some good experienced coaches who actually know what they are doing. Aaron maguer had only been coaching for about 3 year before he came to tigers! We need experie...

Re: We need to invest more money in the team!

We saved £8m to spend on the RHS? What do you mean sponge bob? In terms of top class players, we are spending up to the cap so it's not splashing the cash just spending it on different players? Surely? I mean we saved £8m that's how much it cost, that means investment from sponsors! Which should go...

Re: Booing at half time

Quite frankly I'm surprised it took that long for booing to start!
The team need to perform better these are pro players who look like they couldn't care less. Their is no pride in wearing the shirt like there use to be!
I think it should be sorted out or cleaned out!

Re: We need to invest more money in the team!

Assuming there is money to invest in players. If the building works are funded by borrowing rather than cash, that borrowing can't be used to fund player salaries. Unlike a capital asset like a stand with catering or entertainment earnings over the long term, No bank will lend £1000000 to play play...

I think we need to stop building this "amazing" stadium (which looked pretty empty yesterday) and invest more on better coaches, better equipment etc. Actually get some proven coaches in! Vern cotter is leaving Scotland after 6N get him in, he's done great with Scottish team!
