Re: England Training Squad announced

Kyle Sinckler, Ben Earl as well as uncapped Max Malins called up to the England squad for the Baabaas game following confirmation that Wasps can fulfil the Premiership, putting into doubt Joe Heyes' selection in the match day 23 however the fact that they have only joined could mean Jones just wants...

Achilles complaint apparently, don’t know why but my hunch says it’s something more.

Re: Now playing at Mattioli Woods Welford Rd

I'm in-line with the general consensus here - seems like a smart commercial move for the club and will make zero difference to the fans. If I think about it, I barely use the name of the stadium at all ("Where are you off to later?" - "to see Tigers / to watch the rugby") so I can't see it making a...

It's just trying players out in my opinion.
I'd find it a bit disappointing were Farrell at 12 but who else do you pick!
England need some sparks.
Reinach for example transformed Saints.
True, although I am curious as to whether Lawrence has a future at 12 or he is just a 13...

Re: England Training Squad announced

Eddie Jones has named a 32 man squad for the Baabaas this Sunday, interestingly he has only named two tightwads (Will Stuart and our own Joe Heyes) whilst it is an uncapped fixture it is still great news! Ford, Youngs & Genge also retained. https://www.englandrugby.com/news/article/jones-names-engla...

Re: Now playing at Mattioli Woods Welford Rd

I would be interested to know how much this deal is worth, but I'm well aware we will probably never know.

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

Hopefully Toulouse can bow out Kaino on a high, what a player he is and has been for over 15 years now. A remarkable person both on and off the pitch, and Toulouse have definitely got their money's worth from him!

Re: Now playing at Mattioli Woods Welford Rd

We get much needed money and financial security (it’s a five year deal) and the name Welford Road is retained, I can’t see an issue with it!

Re: European finals 2020

One thing I have to credit Exeter is smart recruitment and bringing the best of players being brought in, which is something I think we will start to see at Tigers with McGinty and Borthwick.

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

I was watching the Champions Cup final last night and I recalled how since the signing of Jonny Gray, how little Jannes Kirsten has played for the Chiefs... wonder if he could be an option for a medical joker to cover Lavanini?
