Re: Tigers v Chiefs

I guess it make the Newcastle game a must must win game. Loser goes down. I think we will turn them over and Bristol and Bath. Some positives from the game...except the score line, defence at times and lack of passion at times! For that to happen, training early this week needs to include the playe...

Re: Cockerill - blame the hierarchy

It is easy to form the impression that the directing of the club is via a collection of individuals whose responsibilities and accountability is not clear, and who, if pressed, tend to say "that's not my area". This tendency is always accentuated when the Organisation they are supposed to be directi...

Re: Cockerill - blame the hierarchy

The powers that-be could begin by losing their suits and ties, their personal offices, and come down to ground level. Sit at desks in the ticket office and take phone calls from supporters, especially ones cancelling their season tickets.

Re: Tigers v Saints

If this was soccer ball, you'd be half expecting the club to bring in someone like Sam Allerdyce or Harry Redknapp to shore things up and try to avoid "the drop". I can see where things could be going next at Welford Road, just to finish off the job....

Re: Tigers v Saints

Congratulations all at Leicester Tigers. Over the past five years, a huge amount of work has been done, in so many ways, to transform the club into a rock solid league bottom three certainty with no possibility of making progress to the knockout stages of cup competitions. Those in charge should be ...

Re: Dear Murphs

Pity we didn't hang on to that bloke who took Toulon from 6th to Top14 final, struggling Scots side to Pro14 KO and now tops Pool 5 in Europe. :smt003 I don't remember him losing EIGHT games on the bounce either, come to think about it i don't remember any previous coach losing eight on the bounce....

Re: Telegraph article - Cole

At the risk of repeating an old theme, there are a couple of paragraphs in this article on Dan Cole's propensity to give away penalties: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/rugby-union/2018/12/03/weekend-demonstrate-difficult-dilemma-reintroduce-returning/ Fair point or kicking him when he's down?

Re: Gloom Doom & Positive Thinking

Am afraid Worth is far too slow for this standard The rest of the backs on display, apart from Eastmond are so far down the Premiership line, its embarrassing. What on earth has happened to the Tigers legacy ???? Horrible days for long standing supporters. The fourth choice 15 who is a utility back...

Re: How to Keep Manu at Tigers

I can forsee him just fading away, whether it's with Tigers or someplace else. He should be able to make a decent living from playing, for a few more years, but can't expect the same income level from it. As someone else has rightly said, he isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer and this, as he get...

Re: How long are we supposed to put up with our diabolical lineout?

I can't remember the last time we had a solid, functioning lineout unit. No matter the hooker, no matter the jumping unit. What has the club done to rectify this? I'm on the outside, but I can't point to anything. Boris has done wonders with our scrum. Surely we can find a specialist to tidy up our...

Re: How to Keep Manu at Tigers

Completely agree weather we keep Manu or not will depend on if he makes the World Cup squad, which I think will be between him and teo for the ball carrying centre. If he doesn’t make it I think he’ll go to France, which I believe would be a good move for him a change of lifestyle and playing style...
