Re: Geordie up before the beak...

All match official abuse should be stamped on with a heavy boot, especially those that use those cheap shots as an excuse for their own shortcomings. Core values anyone? or just when it suits you? I don't think a heavy boot is required on this occasion. Being at the relegation end of the table is a...

Re: Geordie up before the beak...

I've seen worse refs than CMK, in years gone by mistakes by the officials were far more palatable because the team was just so good and overcame most obstacles, a bit like Sarries presently, but when you're not at the top of the table these mistakes importance and the pressure because of them certai...

Re: GROUNDS

Taking into consideration everything and balancing it all out from atmosphere to travel etc my favourite Premiership ground is Worcester and least favourite is Sale. It always seems to be sunny whenever I go to Sixways which I think has influenced it. The Principailty is some stadium though, been to...

Re: What is retirement like for players?

Having watched all three in conversation, it was obvious which of the police contingent of Richards, Dooley and Ackford was the Inspector! :argue: Not sure being good conversation helped much with Mendes! For all you youngsters not yet out of rugby diapers and who have no idea what I mean just goog...

Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

The Leicester props arnt as strong? Of course they are! If you look at Afoa,he's the lowest scrummaging TH I've ever seen,it's not his strength thats ever had LH in trouble,like with Alex Corbisiero on the other side it was his incredible body angle. And that's what suits Thacker,Genge and Cole are...

Re: Rugby Paper article

Being no mug and an Ex Tiger is no qualification for the job that Kay allegedly performs. What does is actual job performance and in my opinion he has gone AWOL. Him and Underwood the Rugby Committee with no responsibility or consequences for the bilge that is sold to us under the slogan of the hom...

Re: Dear Murphs

Plenty of experts with relevant experience on here, get yourselves down there and get on with it. No? I'll help if anyone from the club wants to PM me. Conditions would be a complete clear out and the power to bring in my own DoR and Head Coach. Anyone got the numbers for Richards and Cockerill's a...

Odogwu to Wasps it seems.
He could be a good fit for Wasps who are one of the most dangerous sides off early phases that there are with the pace they put into their attack.
He will need to train very hard though to get the accuracy required to play at that pace.

Re: Tigers vs Bath

I don't think I've seen a game this season where the officials haven't had an impact on the result. Be it a try that common sense says was or wasn't or something else that seems so simple at the time but really isn't. What really is putting me off are the penalty turnovers given with the jackalling ...

Re: Thoughts & conclusions on the season.

I am amazed by BFG's about turn, he spent years complaing that Harry Thackers lack of size was a liability, eventually MOC agreed with him and signed Taf Polata-nau as back up hooker. McGuigan was injured for most of that season so was out of the reckoning. MOC told Harry he was not big enough, Har...

Mahoney did struggle with concussion though BFG.
As do a lot of players which is an even stronger case for a good rotation policy, horses for courses in particular which Leicester do seem to have a big problem adapting to with their automatic starter policy.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 7

It's about backing the right talent.
Saracens let many young players go every year.
