When the season starts again with no relegation then just make happen what should've been happening for the past five years and give George Worth a proper go at fly half.
Be interesting to see Worth behind a decent back row for once, his opportunities only came when we were going backwards.

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Quins have been an average mid table side since 2012, they're not prepared to take off those comfy slippers and push top 4, so their loss Treviso's gain.

Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

I regularly saw Mike Ford watching his sons play (like any good dad) when waiting for his contract in America to be fulfilled. He sat near to us and I always thought what a waste, we're leaking tries and brilliant ex England defence coach sitting in the stands not coaching. Not so much a 'mates refu...

Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

O - you can only choose from the players that it's actually possible to sign. Spot on, agree finding them is the issue but that's the priority for those that know ie club scouts, various Tigers player development programmes, agents, team managers, head of recruitment(?) etc. Prospects are always ou...

Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

Sounds like a good move for you wellstiger :smt023 Some saying we should develop our young players instead of signing Burns, could someone please inform me the name of our talented young mystery fly half who will get less game time if Burns joins? Nope, because we have literally zero young fly halv...

Re: Freddie Burns coming back to Tigers?

Freddie is a good player, but why is he at a 2nd tier semi-pro Japanese side sitting round all morning waiting for half his team mates to finish work at the Toyota factory so he can train? Strange career choice even if the money were half decent. Would I have him back? - no - Tigers need to back a y...

Re: Time wasting

The laws already exist to ensure there are no unnecessary delays: Law 12.b - A 22 metre drop must be taken without delay. Sanction: Free-kick. Law 17 - When the ball has been clearly won by a team at the ruck, and is available to be played, the referee calls “use it”, after which the ball must be pl...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

True I think Youngs as an impact sub can be huge, his experience at the business end of a tight match will be great, I think him moving to the bench can also prolong his career! OTY will retire at the end of this season so great timing for Montoya and the club. Either Mamukashvili or Kerr will go a...

Re: Time wasting

Other leagues have a countdown timer displayed on the big screen when place kicks are taking place. TMO or similar starts the timer once the tee is placed on the ground. This means that all parties including the ref, kicker and crowd can see how long is being taken. The other answer is to follow am...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE IV: A New Hope

Assuming that Bonilla is that good, then what was Murphy's logic signing him as apparently he's also likely to be away on international duty? Henry won't be and would be a decent back up as Harrison was for YBY mixed with the homegrown youngsters. Further weakens the continuity in a key position IM...

Re: Saints v Tigers - 09th January 2021

Would suggest Matt Smith will be explaining to some of the newer signings what Saints games mean to Tigers. ...and the Youngs, Clare, Cole, Heyes, Bower, Wells, Green, Lewis, Reffell, Fordy, White, JVP, Steward and any other player likely to feature who've come through the Tigers academy i've misse...

Not Capstick as that was a clear penalty for Simmonds holding on Not Rees-Zammit as that space was just poor defending Nearly Sopoaga but same issue as Rees-Zammit Very close for Spencer for his heads up awareness and football talents Winner Wells for the kick, gather, YBY change of direction, Nadol...

Re: Non playing staff interfering with play

I would ban the subs from the in goal area, esepcially when they flood into that area to celebrate a try being scored. Apparently they already are...it’s just never enforced, mainly due to lack of space for subs to do whatever it is subs do in the in goal area Where for instance at Welford Road wou...
