Re: Jordan Taufua signs for Lyon OU with immediate effect

I’m extremely late to the party here, but can I just add that if we were to bring in Marco Van Staden as JTs replacement, at a significantly reduced cost, then that would be an ABSOLUTELY TREMENDOUS piece of business. MVS is probably the form backrower in SA at the min. And that’s saying something. ...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Booooooooo Bill Mata extends with Edinburgh! Was hoping - if Taufua was to leave - that we could tempt him south!

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

The Burns move would be odd. Bonilla to move on with Henry covering full back? Could work. Can’t imagine GF FB ZH and TB all remaining on the books.

Loved Burns when he was last here, he was treated pretty shockingly by the club, but can’t help think that this would be a bit of a backwards move.

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Pretty surprised with how its worked out for Gustard. Was originally gutted that we'd missed out on him (pre-SB announcement)

Easter?
Lancaster?
Diamond?

To be honest, refreshing to read an article where we are not the centre of the 'premiership rugby sh*tshow'

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!

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

Enever is an odd one. Don't believe that SB could have signed off on that one given the lack of playing time we've seen from him. Maybe a contributing factor in GM and JM leaving. It was said in the media at the time that SB had been involved in the 'rebuild' contract wise but can't see it in this i...

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

Jonah Holmes the big one for me. Loved what he brought to the team, real electric pace. Potter is quick and a work in progress, Van Wyk you feel is pretty savy and streetwise (ignoring the 'slap' Vs Irish) and brings a physicality, but don't see him skinning his opposite number on the outside! Would...

Re: 3rd January 2021 v Bath

We lose that game last season. Badly. A lot to like about the apparent ethos SB is enstilling. Most I’ve enjoyed a Tigers game in a good while. No Taufua or Lavanini either. Was mass hysteria - myself included! - about JT potentially heading off to France last year; makes me feel a lot more confiden...

Shame. Scored a pretty impressive try for the Cheetahs today. One word to sum him up; rampaging

I didn't watch the game on Saturday, but by all accounts Sam A-R apparently looked pretty sharp. May be a chance to get him back in the starting 23 picture...

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

Does beg the question as to why Bonilla is currently starting over Henry if he is only here on a 'stop-gap' contract. From what Ive seen there is certainly not much between them, although I will say that Bonilla's kicking from the tee looks very assured.

Re: Bayonne - next opponents

Agree with the other posts here, really am 50/50 on team selection. One of the major reasons we've struggled over the past few seasons is that players just haven't had chance to play together, building understandings and partnerships etc - BUT, imagine if we pitched Ford in and he got injured... we ...

Player churn continues! Expect a fair bit of movement, especially outbound, again this summer
