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

Well, he’s broken his forearm.......AGAIN. so who knows what that might mean. He’s going to be out of action after the six nations at least. The way he went down seemed fairly innocuous did playing on a surface with no give contribute to the injury ? You have to wonder. Just to put some facts into ...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

Interesting interview with Kruis. Apologies if it’s been linked before, I only just saw it. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=g4_p5bZ4DM8 Apparently it is what it is. That’s all right then. Best questioning on the subject I’ve seen, definately the bravest! I do wonder if there is a lev...

Re: Tigers vs Cardiff - 12th January 2020

Good to see us string results together and whilst it sounds like it was a mixed bag, the results are improving and that is the main thing aside from progressing in the competition of course

Ravens or Tigers

Could this be us?

Might explain a bit of what’s been going on for a few years!

Worth reading anyway just to see the level pro clubs go to to monitor & predict player performance.

Re: Borthwick

This thread just sums up Tigers at the moment. What a shambles. Maybe or maybe it’s all being sorted and we just don’t know and can’t be told due to contractual restrictions and clauses. If it hadn’t leaked pre RWC we wouldn’t be any the wiser and not frustrated by the lack of update - I’d hardly b...

Re: Exeter Chiefs 21st December

Look no further than Saints and Leicester City to see just what a top class coach can make to a flagging team in a short period. Our Board are not blind but even now they still refuse to see. But if they believe Borthwick is the right man with GM as DOR which seems to be the likely situation then a...

Re: Exeter Chiefs 21st December

The performance by Tigers in the first half showed what our team is capable of. Taufua, Lavanini, Cole and Manu were exceptional. Great to see TV in full flow. The performance by Chiefs in the second half showed how capable a team can be with a top level coach. I can’t help thinking that our curren...

Re: Exeter Chiefs 21st December

Some of the comments on here would make you think we were playing some tin pot side that lose most weeks or that have a tendency to lose close games. Unfortunately that is us at the moment but to push a quality Chiefs side (it was still a more than decent XV they put out) is a signifivant step in t...

Re: Exeter Chiefs 21st December

Much improved and for 50mins were well in it but Chiefs did what they’ve done for years and to far better teams than we currently are and not many can do much about it. Some of the comments on here would make you think we were playing some tin pot side that lose most weeks or that have a tendency to...

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

You'd think the Americans would have learned from the MLS that relying on imported legends slightly past their prime doesn't really work. Yeah that really successful, highly profitable soccer league currently expanding with new teams, record attendances and increased participation should learn from...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

How long can we keep hearing the same post-match interview of "I'm gutted, disappointed, we were second best out there, we don't know where it went wrong..." before something gets done? My prediction is three more Prem matches. If we lose all three he will go. I think not, it must happen now as by ...

Re: Saints away - Saturday 30th November

I hate to say it but it looks to me like they recruited and planned to play a certain attractive type of rugby as evidenced in the early PRC games but have reverted to a sarries “get rid of the ball as much as possible” brand when results went downhill and a few players were injured. Unfortunately, ...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

7) all this means the players are left in limbo and the club is on the field rudderless Fair points made but reference above: has been questioned many times, where are our on-field leaders? Do some players see our current Captain as the unmovable object and just think 'hey-ho why bother getting inv...

Re: Murphy coaches and relegation

So this is what my thoughts are 1) the club needs some stability having had the churn of coaches in the past 5-6yrs even under Cockers (Burke etc) 2) this has meant we’ve no coherent pattern or style 3) the current coaches with some exceptions are struggling to turn this situation around as results ...
