Would be a very good coup for Newcastle if true.

Re: Sale game moved

Not sure Martin has played a league game starting at lock yet... Yes we were in good form pre-circuit break, but it's hard to predict how Sale will play and how much of an impact Alex Sanderson will have made. Very hard to call but we'll still be able to field a pretty impressive side if Covid doesn...

Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

Wonder if it is agent talk? Burns wants to come back to the UK so he gets his agent to tell the Mail Tigers are in talks with him to boost any offers he's got from other clubs or by letting clubs know he's in the market to attract some genuine offers?

Re: Paolo Odogwu

"I do personally feel like in rugby there's is this subconscious tendency to comment on a POC's power or pace rather than his/her skill (and it's happened on this forum too) which does need to change and I hope our own Zack Henry at flyhalf contributes to said change in attitudes."

Re: Paolo Odogwu

What's done is done, but perhaps our experience with Odogwu will mean that in future Tigers will be more patient/take a different approach to academy players. Or, perhaps he wouldn't have matured if Tigers had kept and indulged him? Maybe he'd still be turning up late to training etc and not reachi...

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

Marco van Staden is a great player but I think 4 South Africans in the back-row is taking the mick quite frankly and is overkill. Spend the money where we need it, I don’t think we need a like for like replacement.

Use the money elsewhere in my opinion if he indeed goes rather than finding a like for like replacement in the backrow.

Even if Taufua is off, there's no doubt he will still put 100% in every game he plays until then.

I hope that he does well with England, but I'm suspicious as to whether Jones is just trying to prevent Odogwu from playing for Italy...
