Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

You are Jeremy Corbyn and I claim my £10 It's really not difficult Mark. Life is more precious than money. You are aware that not every business has a lot of money in the bank, aren't you? Particularly the hospitality businesses that are suffering at the moment. Even many "wealthy" people don't hav...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Brittania Hotels (Pontin's Holiday Camps) dismissed all their staff forthwith but then "generously" took them back under the government 80% pay scheme. They will, however, not add anything themselves to the tax payers' contribution to their staff. Wetherspoons now refuse to pay suppliers until pubs...

Looking on the bright side it was almost an identical score as our home game against them. Indeed, one could say we are improving as we scored 3 more points in the away fixture...24-10 versus 24-13. 😂
Words like 'straws' and 'clutching'............................

Re: Sarries vs Leicester - Teams Up

The fact is it's been 7 seasons since Tigers made a premiership final and we have had and continue to experience the 2 worst seasons in our history.. So please can you confirm how many more seasons do you believe we must continue to wait patiently for in order to successfully complete this long hau...

Re: England v Wales

What for me is ruining the game is the totally arbitrary application of the laws, within the same match, at different phases of the same match (beginning, middle and end) between matches, and with different combinations of officials, including the use or non use of TMO reviews. I'll go with the MT r...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Furthermore, the last few years have been pretty bleak in terms of the senior squad at least. Anxiety and frustration, even anger sometimes and suddenly we are in danger of not being able to recognise the potential for a good thing to happen. We are clearly still a long way short of being able to c...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Sounds too much to me for a player four years past his best. I don't know where you'd find that size and try scoring ability for less. The PI monsters who can play rugby aren't just waiting to be discovered anymore there's scouts over there picking them up from an early age. His try scoring record ...

Re: England v Wales

Under 20 Eng22 Wales23 and MotM Costelow absolutely brilliant! Have we definitely lost Costelow? Unfortunately, he is reported as Scarlets-bound. Tonight he got a full house - try,conversions, pens and won the game with a drop-goal. Also made the other try and made a try-saving tackle......a star i...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

I think he’s that old, he may not be able to fulfil such a term. >30yo rugby players are spent and therefore should be euthanised at their first contract renewal post turning 30. :censored: geriatrics stealing valuable cap space. Agreed. 1) we don't want any players over the age of 30. They should ...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

What we need are. English players between the age of 22-29, who aren't anywhere near good enough to be called up for international duty, who haven't been injured before, who haven't played for Barf, Saints or Quins, who aren't coming to top up their pension. So - that's just Owen Farrell and Elliot...

Re: England v Wales

Wait for the headlines if North is concussed in this game. The WRU will be up against the wall, big time.

Re: SARRIES FUTURE

No movement of key players either.No noise of players wishing to move. This may not occur until after 6N. But whilst still at the club the club is still breaching. :smt018 Unless a significant number of players have accepted large, voluntary pay cuts in return for ......who knows what? A farm in So...

"No, the RFU aren't following the advice. They are being over cautious, probably because the hit of canceling an international game is much worse than a league game. But don't let that stop you from bashing Sarries at any opportunity for no reason." You make no sense. If the RFU was being overcauti...
