Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

I reckon Olowafela just needs to play somewhere. What does not fit now could fit in the future. The fact is that the Tigers could not defend and that was more than just one individual. Defence had to be the starting point, what is going to be interesting to see is how or if that evolves into somethi...

Re: EUROPEAN SEMI FINALS

I watched our semi-final against Ulster and thought that Cooney getting injured was a big turning point. The fella was playing out of his skin in my opinion, it was one of those performances that you see every once in a while and can only WOW at. Great comeback from Tigers though to take advantage ...

Re: American Investors for Tigers?

The fact that you think of a rugby as a "fraternity" tells me everything I need to know . Did you know that women are allowed to play rugby now? And vote too? I bet you put your blazer on just to write that post, and then congratulated yourself on your 100th "glass half empty" comment. :smt044 I co...

Re: PREMIERSHIP ROUND 17

Spot on again. You lot Simmonds bashing again! :smt015 He played really well last night in my opinion. Massive workrate and high energy that England could do with a bit of, and another player with the ability to play through the centres when Manu isn't available to truck it up for them. He isn't th...

Re: SAINTS AT HOME 24TH APRIL 2021

I thought it was a good game to watch and that Leicester might grab the win near the end but just too many errors today. Credit where it's due though Saints were decent and after a lot of disruption losing the likes of Painter and Harrison before kick off and the injury to Mitchell when he was play...

Simmonds is like having another centre. Some days that is great others you really need the whole pack. In International rugby is more the latter. Spot on again.

Re: Ringfencing NOW upon us ?

We've often been having similar moral discussions about the 6N and this tier 1 and tier 2 malarkey.
Look at what happened to Lichfield in women's rugby.
The Pro14 or whatever it is now... :smt017

Re: Away vs Bath 18th April

That Wiese push was stupid but if Mercer doesn't react like that then there's no penalty in the first place. He committed the first offence but it was dense from Wiese. The players don't look too upset considering what's just happened. I thought that, quite a few smiles form our players. They’re al...

How did Bath keep 15 players on the pitch considering the number of scrum penalties?
I've got no idea.
No rain or mud in sight, anyone for summer rugby!

Re: Away vs Bath 18th April

The one that got away. Some penalties that might seem silly but the game is littered with niggle looking for a reaction these days. Thomas didn't react and had to go for an HIA and after taking the bait Mercer was let off the hook. A lot of hard work to get into a winning position, good game but the...

Re: Away vs Bath 18th April

What definitely would be a step forward would be for a change of tactics during the game if Plan A isn't working, that we are still to see. I acknowledge we are in a better position than we were, but part of that is others coming down to our level as much as us being vaguely competent again, much l...

Re: RELEGATION SUSPENDED UNTIL 2024-25?

Quite simply the RFU mandarins have to get off their backsides and find the money or investors to finance asecond tier of professional rugby. There are too few people playing and watching our game, the Premiership is available to only a few geographic locations and with ringfencing that will remain...
