Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

Sorry Mark62, but you're wrong, Brits is much better than Thacker. I know Brits didn't win many caps, but Thacker hasn't even played once for the Springboks - even at age group level! Also Brits has an awards ceremony named after him in the music industry, what's Thacker done for music? Nothing, th...

Re: Tigers v Calvisano - Teams up!

Back in the 80s all the junior rugby club teams used to be printed in the Mercury on a Thursday along with a list of which referees were doing which games.

Of course this was prior to mobile phones and Tinternet

Re: Tigers v Calvisano

Call me cynical... have they announced the team a day early to try sell some more tickets.... teams for Saturday games always used to be announced on Thursday Yeah but not recently even teams for Sunday’s are announced on a Friday. Maybe there’s going to be a big announcement tomorrow regarding the...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

Brits is/was a better player than Thacker in my view. I’m not comparing quality I’m comparing style. Neither of them is particularly orthodox in the way they play Personally though would still take Brits over Harry T in a heartbeat.

Re: Tigers v Calvisano

I wasn’t too far off.
Both the Youngs boys have made a lot of the right noises about getting things back on track, let’s see it backed up with actions now.

50 points plus with that side

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

Who would you rather have ?? Olafewla 10 stone or Nayaravoro 20 stone ? Sums up half the Tigers these days. Especially the blinking locks and back row, bar Thompson. Back in the long distant past, the only lightweight was Les flipping Cusworth. Varndell at least scored tries for fun. Now our recent...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

Reinach, De Klerk, Hougaard, Heinz, Nic White, Takulua.. seems we have fallen behind in the 9 shirt department over the last few seasons. Such an important position and one that needs strengthening for sure. Easy to point the finger at one individual and that's not what I'm doing but there are some...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

Thacker does well in a team where the flexibility is given for him to do what he is good at. Under Lam it works it would never work on the international stage and a coach would have to agree to give him his head whoever signed him. Schalk Brits is a comparable type of player, box office and brillian...

Re: Do they read this forum

Only £120k a year? And I thought poverty in the UK was a thing of the past! And they have to pay tax too? I'm glad I don't have to pay tax... oh wait, I do. Except I probably pay a lot more tax because i don't get paid for image rights which I can have paid to a company in the Cayman Islands. And t...

Re: Do they read this forum

Read that average premiership player, is on around £120k a year, but after tax, and saving for the future probably more like half that, which ok is comfortable for a short period of time.

I would imagine that a Division 2 footballer is earning more than that

Thanks RB an MurphysLaw. So going on who’s not injured, suspended or on holiday I would guess at a starting 15 of Genge, Kerr, Lady Gaga, Green, Jordan, Lewis, Reffell, Coghlan, Harrison, Reid, Olowefela, Hardwick, Taute, Vieanu, Worth Reffell, Olowofela and Veaniu have all been out injured. They m...
