Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

Bateman announced his retirement. I wonder if he'd do things differently if he had his time again. I think the move to prop was a mistake. I guess he knew his time in the game was limited so being unwilling to take a pay cut is perhaps understandable. Not sure the move to prop was a mistake - he wa...

Well would he been here during Borthwick time?
We've gone 360 ! Back to the "Would Borthwick take the England job" question :smt017
It's big maybe. But even IF Borthwick goes, maybe the personalities left might still be attractive if looking to catch a future England coaches' eye!

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

K'poku may have been disillusioned with English rugby before moving to Lyon, but he did come through Sarries' academy during the dodgy years. I can imagine he might want to come back and have a go at England caps, now the stink has had a chance to wear off. I imagine the chance to work with SB is a...

Does anyone know anything about David Aniebonam?
I know it’s a struggle to pronounce his surname 😂

Re: Leicester Tigers women's team?

Rumour that Lightning are merging with Tigers team next season. Not sure how true it is. Very strange if so. Yeh It makes sense from Tigers and Lightning POV though. IF true I suspect Tigers feel they have enough foundation down to absorb a league spot now and that doing it through Litchfield might...

Re: England Squad for down under

Odd not to see Marchant in there. He’s not one of the senior players who would benefit from a rest. Will have to see if he is in the Quins team this weekend. I suspect Jones has chosen to include as few of his "senior" players as possible. Notable that the "leadership" group are...

Re: England Squad for down under

So an England get together just b4 the play-offs. You couldn’t make it up :smt017 Thought it was next week It is but still a risk of injuries. Do you know the itinerary? I bet half of it is probably going to be squad photos for the newbies etc. I'm not sure they'll get to the smashing seven bells o...

Leicester: Worth; Betham, Tait (capt), Roberts, Brady; Burns, Kitto; Genge, McGuigan, Balmain, Wells, Kitchener, Williams, Thacker, McCaffrey. Replacements: Youngs, Rizzo, Bateman, Barrow, Hamilton, White, Williams, Smith. Is that fairly well loaded? Yes. I think all of those players by that point ...

Re: Glaws after compensation from Wuss

I read that earlier today myself, it appears they claim it cost them £250K in lost ticket revenue after refunding all tickets & hospitality sold. Easily that. Averaging solidly over 10000 attendance per match. Complete sympathy with their position. I think Worcester's insurers need to be paying...

Re: Tigers v Newcastle (A) 21st May 2022 KO 15:00

Given the week off this weekend, and the week off the weekend following this fixture, I think it'll be a fairly strong team to secure top spot. However, I could see a scenario where Ilione and Edwards are given Premiership debuts from the bench. That's a risk worth taking perhaps. I take your point...
