Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 2

Bristol do tend to splash the cash to get who they want (half a mil on Nathan Hughes for example). Only so many players you can splash the cash on. Doubt Bristol would have been able to offer much more, if any, than us. I suspect their bid would maybe have tried to emphasise emotional ties to the c...

Re: Tigers v Calvisano - Teams up!

A very strong side. We really should be winning comfortably. Does anybody know anything about why Cameron Jordan isn't in the squad? Given that we only have 1 lock playing it seems odd to leave him out unless he's injured. Maybe we’re just trying to practice winning matches without many lineout opt...

Think we might be ok, Browning will just be called to cover.
Or this gives the ability to extend Forsyth’s cover deal to a full injury dispensation.

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

I’m not sure if this part of the statement has been spoken about on here and there’s too many pages to check but how obnoxious can you get? Nigel Wray speaking like he’s doing everyone a favour by not asking for a review. “For the good of the game”- absolutely ridiculous. “It would be a costly, tim...

I’ve put the VPN and now rather than saying “not available on your device” it just says “channel offline”.

Why is Genge not starting? Is it purely the language problem?
It would be logical seeing as just about every minute Lavanini has played has been with Gigena.

That said, Gigena has been doing alright.

Re: Tigers v Pau Saturday Nov 16th

Good to see Gigena awarded with a start; obviously there to help Lanavini/Laninivi/Lavanavini with his English.

Not for Sarries..
FOR US, probably...
IF we lose to Irish tomorrow, that really makes us favourites..
It is an absolutely crucial match for us, and this cannot be understated.
Let’s see how we are at Christmas, without having a European competition to worry about.

Then I’ll listen.

Lavanini an international class lock ...he should start
I'm guessing this is a case of bedding him in with the language, lineout calls etc.
Possibly. Expect him to come on alongside Gigena again.

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

The revue/appeal won't be the end of it. Newcastle, Bristol and Irish were relegated during the years in question and I understand are poised to issue their own litigation. They lost millions in consequence and at least Newcastle can claim that their home and away defeats to Saracens contributed gr...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

If it is true as stated on here that academy players get around £30k pa that sounds pretty good for an 18 or 19 year old....or even 21, 22,23 year old Except that 22 year old is almost certainly going to have medical issues later in life as a direct result of his job, and a significantly higher tha...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

It won’t. It’s a review of process so I can’t see any appetite to let them off. The only way the punishment will change is through the disaster that would be the Courts. Then we can all thank them for their desperate clamour to the top and their willingness to sacrifice the club game as we know it a...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation

A very valid post Traveller. This is the big point; other clubs will have suffered by Saracens unfairly influencing the player market. Players who would have stayed at other clubs; depth of the squad that was only there by massaging the cap. Factors that can lose clubs games, lose them footfall, los...
