Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

I agree with BFG, something along the lines of a player coach at a Championship club for year would do Guy and players hoping to make the jump up some good. Absolutely I think he’s from London originally the sort of player/coach Ealing should be looking at if budget allows. He could make a wonderfu...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Yes,poor decision. Didnt start playing till very late so relatively young in rugby terms. Probably go on and win a couple of titles at Exeter or haunt us from Saints! And you really think either of those teams will look at an injury prone 33 year old back row forward no matter how old he was when h...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

But the point is that the 2 are linked whether you carefully avoided mentioning them or not. Being clever with words doesn’t detract from the fact that if he was 33 and virtually injury free Tigers may well have been more inclined to extend his contract by a year, but he isn’t so they haven’t. And y...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

I'm really sad that we are losing Guy Thomson, he was one of my favourites, its amazing that excellent players can be discarded because of their age. I'm also sure that Adam Thompstone will not be with us next season, another who gave his all for us and I think the same age. I think it’s false to s...

Re: If Sarries hadnt been relegated ?

Theoretically speaking, if Saracens hadn't been found guilty I would argue this season had the grounds to be written off like the Women's league so relegation or promotion would have been unlikely. Spot on JP14, the Saracens situation as well as the Falcons winning the championship at a canter mean...

Re: Saracens - The Road to Ruin

Good point raised about the du Preez brothers at Sale, I can't seem to find out who is their marquee players at the moment but let's say its Jean-Luc du Preez (who is probably the higher rated of the three brothers) meaning he could be paid (theoretically) 800,000 and his two brothers at a really l...

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

Ian Mcgeehan has suggested the following. He knows a bit about picking Lions teams

Hogg, Watson, Davies, Tuilagi, Liam Williams, Farrell, Gareth Davies

Sutherland, George, Furlong, Itoje, Ryan, Ritchie, Curry, Billy V

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Has been really good for us, but I would imagine his injury record and age combined have gone against him. Sort of player both Newcastle and Ealing would offer a 1 year deal to, best of luck to him With Taufua, yes I know it’s not his favourite position, and Reffell and maybe Gough or Lavin ready to...

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

I can't stand his attitude but a fit & on form Biggar would be my pick at 10. A shame his match time is being foreshortened, otherwise on current progress I'd have expected Hastings to be a contender. I would agree on both counts. Hastings issue may also be that Finn Russell has stated he wants to ...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Fair enough and I realise I’m in a fortunate position. From my understanding it won’t be a loan but as you say we will end up paying for it somehow my guess is a reduction in the tax free amount of salaries. As you say not all employees are going to be in the same boat, for instance if you started a...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

A quote from an email from my employer. HMRC have made clear that to be eligible for Furlough an employee must not complete any financially valuable work whilst on leave. Basically if you’re working and it’s helping your employer run the business they pay your normal salary, if you’re at home on ext...

I think the 9s could well be Webb, Davies and Cooney 10s Biggar Sexton and Farrell travelling mainly as a 12 who covers 10 Sexton isn't in good form, no point in taking him in my view. Webb now has the chance in the next year to prove himself. At this point you’re right but who knows what is going ...
