Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

That's good counterpoint. Although I do think that has also been Exeter's limiting factor in Europe. Hence why they have signed Hogg and Richie Gray Yeandle has indeed been a superb player for Exeter. Yeandle is a club's dream player very consistent but also knows his limits. He gave Cowan-Dickie a...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Not sure I agree RB because that's not what I see when I look at the Exeter squad.
What I do see is cumulative strength based on hard work and built by a quality coaching team.
I wonder if players like Jack Yeandle would even get a mention on this topic but what a superb player he has been for Exeter.

Re: New Rugby Coronavirus Laws

Correct me if I'm wrong BFG, but I think for once you're agreeing with me. The risks of coronavirus, like all the usual boring day to day risks like driving and walking down stairs, can be mitigated against with a cautious approach - we don't all need to stay at home forever or cancel all sport for...

Re: New Rugby Coronavirus Laws

Some just don't seem to have the filter to reason.
The virus spread can be mitigated with a cautious approach.
Similarly risks are mitigated by driving to the conditions or sleeping downstairs when half cut.

Re: Ticket Refunds

Could clubs offer subscriptions to season ticket holders to show matches via a secure online platform?
It shouldn't really be an issue for television as season ticket holders would usually be in attendance anyway.

Ok, I'm going to bite... a) You end a sentence asserting that other people need to calm down by using not 1 but 3 exclamation marks!!! b) You agree that the topic of Olowofela is no longer interesting and not relevant to the thread - then you continue discussing the topic of Olowofela. c) Olowofela...

With reference to no specific post on the matter, the Jordan O debate has in my opinion gone past the point where it is of interest. Perhaps a separate thread for those who wish to continue the discussion? I prefer to see posts on this thread which relate specifically to transfers in and out and te...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

I'd back Wells alongside Lavanini and Green.
He is nearing his prime and a rather good coach is on his way.
Then there are some younger.

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

Dont think anyone could argue Matt Toomua's qualities as a Rugby player alone... For me those qualities were neither shown, nor were in any way apparent once his head was turned, and lets face it his own contract extension spin and rhetoric did nit help. Again , this has been covered times over , p...

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

Yes I thought that Toomua was quality in the 10 position during a period where Leicester just couldn't get in behind anyone. He stretched the play pretty well in front of teams which is no easy task especially early in matches when everyone is fresh. Also no coincidence that Exeter were interested i...

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

Bristol haven't won anything but promotion. Their injuries seemed to be increasing prior to lockdown, I recall they signed a hooker on loan. They were well beaten at WR this season and had the season continued I think they would've dropped down the table whereas I think after the 6N Leicester would'...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

What would you do if your employer demanded you take a huge pay cut when other employers were queueing up to offer a much better package? I don't know if you have a partner or dependents but Johnny does. What do you thing they're saying? Johnny May has always given his all on the pitch (IMO) which ...

Re: Provisional Premiership Return Date ?

Seeing the beach scenes over past days leads me to think that a tracking and tracing database might become a requirement for all.
I'd add that the ability to track and trace is the difference for schools.
