Re: Tigers v Chiefs

Has anyone said “Fortress Welford Road” yet or are we still refilling the moat? Or even The Fortress @Mattioli Woods Welford Road :smt002 I would like to see Kerr, Henderson and some of the other upcoming players selected when the team selection allows. I am still gutted over our poor performance l...

CMK or J P Doyle I assume.

Re: London Irish Away

Bonilla needs another chance, this is a guy who steered the Jaguares to the 2019 Super Rugby final, there’s no doubting his ability. We all have off days, I seem to call George Ford missing touch kicking out of hand for penalties against Toulon and no one called for his swift departure! So is Bonil...

Re: London Irish Away

Irish animal rights protesters broke into a turkey farm near Brentford tonight, they escaped with over 5000 turkeys. A spokesman for the Irish gang said " We will be releasing all the birds back to the wild just as soon as they have been defrosted!" Sorry it is off subject but it is a Christmas crac...

Re: Manu - Sale injury update

Whilst I am very sorry to hear of Manu's serious injury and long term recovery, I am so pleased that it is not Tigers who are paying his convalescence again with his high salary and the monies that Tigers have saved has been exceptionally well used to recruit an exciting new set of backs.. Thank you...

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

[my bold] That's true but memories last a long time and the redundancy programme - did we really think that was the 'Night of the Long Studs? - will still be very fresh in the memory. Given that he put his head above the parapet for the good of the club when O'Connor left, it would be nice to think...

In these enlightened times candles are a thing of the past as the number required represent a serious fire hazard, not to mention the possibility of spreading disease as I try to raise enough puff to blow them out.
Great response JOHN. :smt043

Re: Happy birthday johnthegriff!

Thank you to all who wished me a happy birthday, for these difficult times I had a pretty good day, a walk on Knighton Park, a visit to a friend for coffee and chocolate cake, a few phone calls and a visit at home from one of my daughters and her husband. My lamb steak dinner went well as did the t...

Re: Changes since 2018/19

I'am probably not alone in thinking what a great post that was from Raging Bull and in those 3 seasons there are players that had slipped my mind - I hope this is not the onset!! Now several years ago and if my long term memory serves me well before the update of this forum - there was an A-Z of pas...

Re: Baa Baas game called off - Players charged by RFU

Nine from the team that thinks it is so special it is above the law and in those nine the rottenest apple in the barrel - Callum Clarke. :smt011 Another chicken coming home to roost for the RFU - they should have given him a life ban for his assault on Rob Hawkins. I totally agree Calum Clarke is a...

Re: Kobus Van Wyk

Van Wyk posted an Instagram story of him in the gym at Tigers around 2 hours ago. As others have said, if he’s fit he could be thrown into the match day 23 - though the other backs who are likely to be involved have put their hand up too. Kobus Van Wyk cannot play for Tigers on Sunday V Castres as ...
