Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

Any knowledge why McGinity got the farewell? "The decision has been taken now, with recruitment finalised for 2020/21, to allow the new team led by head coach Steve Borthwick to have the best possible opportunities, time and resource in looking ahead to strengthening the squad for the future."

Mail on Sunday suggesting we're talking to Freddie Burns; Jordan Taufua may leave for Lyon before season-end; and Marco van Staden being considered as a replacement. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/rugbyunion/article-9179959/Leicester-Tigers-eye-Shokki-Shuttles-fly-half-Freddie-Burns.html Marco v...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

In current circumstances, can we justify having 5 front line hookers on the books? Montoya Youngs Clare Kerr Mamukashvili You'd think that, with Vanes coming through too, that at least one would have to be shifted off the books? Excited by Montoya. Try scoring machine from the rolling maul! Perhaps...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

I know a Quins STH that very much as his ear to the ground. Tells me it was a bolt of the blue and didn't see it coming. Post event rumours that there is a lot of player unrest with many considering leaving at the end of the season but it seems to me that is just taking a punt on the reasons. I gue...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Personally I would rather target a TH, I prefer Leatigaga at LH. I can't really recall him struggling much in either position to be honest. I think the main driver will be the ability and availability of potential signings. If the better option appears at tighthead then switch it around. If highly ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Looking at Wasps out of contract list and Callum Sirker would be top of my must try to poach list. I was thinking one of the looseheads would be a good target. McIntye in particular but also Harris and Zhavania would be upgrades on Bower without costing too much. McIntyre is a cracking prop who wou...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Great news I'm guessing we're possibly not paying him full whack for this season either as would have thought the whole point of not signing him till next year was due to cap constraints. Tom Youngs had originally been due to come out of contract at the end of 2020/21, Montoya had been in talks wit...

RB beat me to it!

I think Kerr will sign with Edinburgh but hope that Mamukashvili stays. He's a good hooker, won't take up too much cap and continuity would be a good thing.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Kerr and maybe Mamu. Thanks,who is our academy hooker? Have we one on the way through do you know ? Archie Vanes joined the development squad this season and is extremely talented. I was surprised he missed out on the recent England U20 squad. He's only 19 though. If Kerr and Mamu go then I'd expec...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

I reckon Earl will go back and Malins will stay. Pat Sanderson going to Sale might make things interesting though. Slight concern for some clubs might be what players Saracens will target once they come back up. Is it Alex Sanderson or Pat? The article on Ruck looks like Alex, not Pat, albeit the t...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Assuming that Bonilla is that good, then what was Murphy's logic signing him as apparently he's also likely to be away on international duty? Henry won't be and would be a decent back up as Harrison was for YBY mixed with the homegrown youngsters. Further weakens the continuity in a key position IM...

Thought May was really poor, easily outmatched by Radwan.
May didn't have the best game.

Radwan looks absolute quality though. I wouldn't be surprised if he pushes Cokanasiga and Thorley out the England squad. Same sort of pace as Thorley but a rock solid defensive game.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

For cap purposes from next season an 'academy player' is any player who is under 24 on September 1st 2021 and earning less than £50k a year. A 'home grown academy player' is a player who has been with the club since they were 17 and has either never been a member of another clubs academy or has been...
