Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE V: Borthwick Strikes Back

Just read on ‘Ruck’ that Ollie Lawrence may be leaving Worcester soon (so take it with a huge pinch of salt) .
If true I’d love to see him at tigers depending on price of contract.

Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

Do we really think Henry is going to improve significantly at his age? He's already 26 so not a development project. Yes he may improve a bit, but way off the standard of a premiership starter. Perhaps the bench when Ford is on England duty or those above him are injured. I think he may not improve...

Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

Henry is very medicore, and this is easily noticable by the standard of play we see when Ford comes on. Those who rate Henry should look at how he runs the back line (he doesnt). Mcphilips off Got to keep the argentines together now for a friendship group. 1.Ford 2.Burns 3.Bonilla 4.Academy I think...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

A player I'd take here if he were to end up available at the end of the season. Might be a bit pricey though at a time when the salary cap is reducing and we are concentrating on keeping our pack together and the current back three options are already under contract. The back 3 is probably the area...

With a potential for Taufua and others leaving where would people most want to see the spare salary cap used?

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Apparently Ollie Thorley is rumoured to be going to Sale, huge is they can pull it off, maybe using the cap they used to sign Manu for a year?

Re: Tigers vs Brive

Just checked on the epcr website and it doesn’t say that our round 1 match will be available to watch live but it does say it now is the tigers website anyone know if it’ll appear nearer the time or will I have to buy the £8.99 weekend pass?

Re: Tigers vs Brive

Interestingly, on the Good, the Bad and the Rugby pod gengey’s just said he’s available for Brive and wants to play. If Borthwick decides the play him, Lenny and Fordy then it’s up to him but they seem to be available as Gengey said they were in training on Tuesday...

Random second thought, how many of these are currently managed by a certain player agent Richard Wilks, who is rumoured to be replacing Jan?
Does anyone know who Richard Wilks is actually agent for as if he does replace Jan then who could he persuade to bring in?

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

I don’t actually see the use of any of the signings ruck have said because Obano would compete with Genge on big salary and there wouldn’t be space for the two back rowers unless we’re gonna have another re shuffle. The only one I’d fancy is the outside backs but I think Cordero is the biggest long ...

Re: Tigers vs Brive

:smt028 Does anyone know if this will be shown on TV or online? Can't see it on any TV listings as it looks like BT have opted for the Newcastle game. Perhaps the EPC Rugby website will be showing a handful of games like they did last year? :smt017 Ok so it looks like it might be streamed on the EPC...

Re: Predictions 20-21

I would also keep Aspland- Robinson as he hasn’t had a chance to prove himself because of injury so I think he deserves a go and is a good cover player for wing and centre. https://www.leicestertigers.com/news/extension-aspland-200706 Only mentioned as someone above said that they would move him on...

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

What about Semi Kunatani, seems like a really good player who is currently out of contract after he didn’t pass his medical for Castres? Not sure why he failed so apologies if there is a glaring reason he can’t join us to cover Lavanini
