Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

Too tall prop who scrummaged England to the RWC2007 final, played umpteen times for his country, toured with the Lions and was for a year or so regarded as one of, if not the best, prop in the world?

Hope Heyes is a similar failure...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

Was it me or did we seem to attack the blindside a large amount of the time? Wonder if it was something the analyst guys picked up on or might it be a new gameplan Just seemed to me the blindside on both sides was targeted multiple times in 1 phase repeatedly. Worked really well also. Agreed, I tho...

Re: Tigers vs Gloucester - Teams Up

Re: A Proper Clear Out

Looking at the situation it tells me that Murphy still had more control on team affairs as I said all along and that was never going to work. At least theres only one voice now., Or to put another way.... regardless of a lack of evidence either way, I’ve decided I was right and will disregard any o...

Re: Tom, Pinchen and Borthwick LTTV special tonight 8:30 PM

Sorry, one more positive at least we won’t see any poor tactical kicking in the new season as that was all Geordan’s idea. I assume that’s tongue in cheek? I think it will continue ad nauseum I just hope it becomes less than every time we get the ball and we have some chasers who actually chase har...

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

Are we likely to see any more new signings before the season starts?

I assume not and we have what we have until 2021/22 but perhaps others will be better placed to advise?

Re: Club Statement - COVID-19

Let’s face it, most of us don’t know the intricacies of professional rugby but it’s a fairly innocuous issue if we are wrong or give an illformed opinion as it doesn’t really hurt anyone other than your own ego if you are subsequently pilloried for it. This thread suffers from my bug bear regarding ...

Re: Wigglesworth in!

37 years old and heavily involved in two of the biggest sporting scandals in recent memory, we don't even know how long his ban will be for breaking covid regulations, could be severe. To be perfectly honest I want nothing to do with him. Not sure we’d be saying we don’t want Itoje if he joined bec...

Re: European finals 2020

Cockers inherited a good (Very good) squad that he, as DoR, oversaw a gradual decline over many many years across forwards and backs. There may well be exacerbating reasons for some of the frankly odd recruitment under the latter years of his tenure (that summer we signed a load from Treviso springs...

at least has been enjoyable to watch with some actual attacking Rugby
I agree - in and amongst the fairly turgid stuff defensively we’ve played some decent stuff 2nd half

Re: Tigers vs Quins - 04 Oct 20 15:00

Ignoring the blatant penalty... Look how much more threatening a supposed weakened Quins look ball in hand, compared to a near full strength Tigers. It’s painful to watch us so sterile and blunt in possession. We look like we have no plan other than kick and chase. We look like we’re looking for co...
