Re: Steve Borthwick

I suspect the board are fed up of the downturn and I would imagine the player's influence has slipped somewhat because of that. The England quintet of Dan Cole, Manu Tuilagi, Ben Youngs, George Ford & Ellis Genge have all been coached by him at England level and I thought those players held a lot of...

Re: Peter Tom - Statement

Was Geordie at Oval Park in the video? Bondi confirmed that Geordan was at Oval Park and confirmed that he was adhering to social distancing!! :smt023 Thanks, and I have no worry about that Geordie is a sensible man but also has to remember that this will be the kind of thing the press will try to ...

Re: Steve Borthwick

July 1st - SB and his coaching team will be in charge of a quite different squad of players. They will be putting their stamp on things. Every player will have to buy into SB style. As we have heard the process has started to get us back to the top. How long that will take will depend on how well h...

Fijian international Semi Kunatani has left Harlequins to Castres, shame that he never really made at Quins because he is some player.

What is he going to say next in 5 years time? Eddie Jones forced him to go back to union? Give it a rest!

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

Hamilton is leaving Bristol, might be a good return as he’s never kicked on elsewhere and can cover 6,7,8. Wouldn’t be demanding a massive wage. Seems Liam Gill is going Japan. Shame he’s left and has been unable to find a stable club since leaving us I thought he was quite rated at Bristol, never ...

Re: Provisional Premiership Return Date ?

Or like New Zealand just eradicate the disease through contact tracing so that there is less of reliance on the vaccine? There has never been a vaccine found for Spanish Flu yet life returned to normal after 1920. There is a huge difference in lifestyle and culture in New Zealand which has helped w...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

There isn't much of an issue with Scottish players playing outside of Edinburgh/Glasgow so I'm fine with signing players from north of the border.

Re: Steve Borthwick

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Borthwick only worked with Bakewell at Bath, 11 years ago. That's a long time ago in a sport that has changed so much. Maybe Bakewell was a brilliant forwards coach in 2009, but maybe he isn't now. I'm not sure which other forwards coaches Borthwick worked with,...

Re: Provisional Premiership Return Date ?

I thought that a return to training had been agreed last week and it would be built up in a controlled manner. The date for a return to playing now needs to be agreed with Premiership Rugby and the clubs, ensuring that all necessary safety precautions have been considered and implemented. Geordan h...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD Part 2

That's good counterpoint. Although I do think that has also been Exeter's limiting factor in Europe. Hence why they have signed Hogg and Richie Gray Yeandle has indeed been a superb player for Exeter. Yeandle is a club's dream player very consistent but also knows his limits. He gave Cowan-Dickie a...
