Re: Ringfencing finally here?

The gap between Premiership and Championship rugby is huge that is why a promoted team has to recruit heavily before starting their Premiership campaign even then they usually struggle. The chances of Championship winners beating the bottom Premiership team are slim as we found when a similar syste...

Re: Players retirement

I have some sympathy with those who lose their careers fairly suddenly. Although I am not a pro rugby player, I lost my nursing career fairly soon after being diagnosed with cancer. I was 31 years of age and left with disabilities that were incompatible with nursing. It was an absolutely devastating...

Have we 100% signed Coghlan? Because I can’t imagine us bringing in him as well as Wallace. Surely it would one or the other?
Yes Coghlan has 100% signed.

Re: London Irish: an immorality tale?

Anyone who is on the unoffy may have seen my post on there but I’m not going to repeat what I said. Anyone who is that interested my username is similar on there and that pretty much sets out my point of view. However a poster on the unoffy made a very good point. This was in Northern Ireland where ...

Re: Ealing beat London Irish to win cup

Hartpury have also been playing Bristol’s reserves as well as Gloucester’s- there’s been matches where they’ve played a stupid amount of players who weren’t theirs. Absolute joke. The limit for loan players in a match day team in the Championship is something ridiculous like 13 and Hartpury have tak...

Re: And breathe.......

Being a Geordie who comes from a place 10 minutes up the road from the Falcons ground but having lived in Leicester for 13 years and now being a Tigers STH, I’m not sure whether to feel sad or relieved..!! :smt100

Re: Ampthill anyone?

Problem is though once a Championship team builds a decent squad, Premiership teams often swoop in for the best pickings!

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

Jordan Coghlan (Irish back row) from Nottingham has signed. Been to the Nottingham Rugby awards evening and it was confirmed there. What's Coghlan like as a player? From what I've seen he's mobile, physical and likes to get stuck in. Not too dissimilar to Thompson. He’s a solid, reliable player- wo...

Re: Tigers v Newcastle - 12th April 2019

Yes Gengey made a few daft mistakes tonight but he could have done a lot worse, especially given how Ah You was constantly trying to take a pop at him. There was plenty of others being a bit naughty- Mr Ford and Mr May, I’m looking at you!! :smt018 I did feel sorry for poor Floody though- it seems l...

Somewhat squeaky bum time at the end but Guy Thompson- well done sir. Absolutely immense.

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

Just to add a little to the rumour mill. It would appear from their individual Instagram feeds that Ellis Genge and Jack Nowell are holidaying at the same place. Wonder where he’s off to season after next, nice and close to Bristol too I think Gengey and Nowellsy are mates. I don’t think there’s an...

Re: Season Ticket Renewals

I’ve bought only my second season ticket since I first started watching Tigers when I moved here in 2006. I’ve been away for a long time for reasons I can’t divulge but that reason has now been moved out of my way so I’m back. I am relinquishing my Nottingham season ticket as I’m a bit disgruntled ...

Re: Embarrassing / Too arrogant

I watched the interview with Gengey after the game and that is exactly what he called it- embarrassing. I was waiting outside the dressing room for him to sign my shirt and he said to me ‘Sorry about that’ meaning the result. Why on earth does he feel the need to apologise? I felt really bad for him...
