Re: Sale (H) 23rd October 2021 - 3pm

Going to be massive battle up front, some tweaks in the pack for me. Probably best to keep some continuity in the backline as we’ll need to be taking our chances.

Re: Worcester (A) 16th October - 3pm

Be an interesting selection, need to give minutes to players returning but would be very much targeting the Sale home game. Still a strong team and one which can go to Worcester and win, I’d go for: Van Wyk Montoya Heyes Wells Snyman Chessum Wiese MVS JVP Burns Socino Moroni Saumaki Hegarty Muri Dol...

Re: London Irish (A) Sat 9th Oct & Worcester (A) Sat 16th Oct

That LI pack will be no pushover. Agree with Borthwick’s selection, we need to put our strongest team on the field to get some away wins under our belt. Can’t wait to see Socino and Nadolo as the big carriers in the backline to see ball in hand. Should give us some much needed physicality and direct...

Re: Round 3 - Saracens (H) - Saturday 02nd October 2021

Interesting selection, looks like most teams have heavily rotated this weekend. Starting to think we might not see Taute in a playing capacity again and have to guess Muri is injured. Don’t think the team is as weak as first thought. The back three could make something happen with both wingers wanti...

Re: Tigers @ Gloucester - Friday 24th September 2021 - 1945

Mixed feelings - 5 points in the bag. Other positives being Potter, Dolly and Kelly I thought were immense. Reffell has really grown in the last two games too, always a nuisance. But we left another 2 tries out there by just awful handling. Ford looked rattled in the second half and almost cost us t...

Need to swap both half backs and get some control in the game.

Re: Tigers @ Gloucester - Friday 24th September 2021 - 1945

2 games in a row we've seen some of the worst forward passes I've seen from us Scott's passing is utterly abysmal pass he decimated a clear try scoring overlap We should have at least 2 more tried on the scoreboard! Although overall a good performance so far - need to tighten it up for the second h...

Re: Tigers @ Gloucester - Friday 24th September 2021 - 1945

Not being harsh on Gloucester - full strength they’re a good team but looking at the lineups we really should be getting the win. Glad to see Snyman get a start - he’s looked like a shrewd signing. JVP deserves to be rotated with Youngs for a starting spot too. Not too many changes which is good to ...

Re: AUTUMN INTERNATIONALS 2021

Wouldn’t read too much into the training squad to be honest, Ford showed he’s still the best 10 in England so I’ve no doubt he’ll be starting in the autumn. Surprised JVP didn’t get the nod over Quirke, maybe Tigers bias. Both great 9s and could see them both being in the WC squad. Glad to see May b...

Re: Tigers vs Exeter - Saturday 18th September 2021 - 1500

I’m expecting a win in all honesty - think we’ve got the stronger XV overall and better bench. Youngs and Ford have had the summer off and are the test team pairing - hoping they come out with a point to prove and give a commanding performance. Exeter have a strong backline but missing key players i...

Re: Expectations - 2021/2022

It’s a tough one, we’ve the best squad on paper in over ten years, quality in every position and strength in depth. But also need to manage expectations and realise we’ve had a good squad more recently and still not done very well. The league is also looking tougher than it ever has before. Hopefull...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: There and Back again a Tigers Tale by Steve Borthwick

George Worth released... https://www.leicestertigers.com/news/georgeworth-departure-210811 Surprised by the timing, given that he's had 4 weeks pre-season with us, but sounds like there's something lined up for him. Go well George! No doubt we’ll see some others follow before the season starts, the...

Re: Greatest ever Tigers XV

Surprised so many people have picked Kayser - met the guy, great bloke but didn’t play that many times for us. Ghiraldini hasn’t got a mention but played more time for Tigers and scored more tries. Always an unsung hero for me whilst at the club. Wonder if Montoya stays for a few years he’ll cement ...
