Re: Provisional Premiership Return Date ?

Or like New Zealand just eradicate the disease through contact tracing so that there is less of reliance on the vaccine? There has never been a vaccine found for Spanish Flu yet life returned to normal after 1920. There is a huge difference in lifestyle and culture in New Zealand which has helped w...

Re: Steve Borthwick

Forget the 11 years a go reference, for the past 5 years Borthwick has been coaching England to the standard any club would bite his hand off for. World class and completely in tune with todays game and the right players will buy into this.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

So I hope all these posters that are bringing up these stats, won’t be the same ones that are complaining that we haven’t given a young player a chance, when he moves to another club. Given a chance? Olowofela has had 39 appearances so far, and if that isn't given someone a chance then what is??? A...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

For all you stat lovers!! -for the last 5 Premiership games Olowofela started on the wing, his stats in bold and our other winger that day in brackets: Versus Worcester Metres run - 22 (0) - Tackles made - 4 (6) - Tackles missed - 5 (1) Versus Sale Metres run - 4 (13) - Tackles made - 2 (3) - Tackle...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

Am I alone in thinking that Jordan Olowofela showed enough last season to be considered as a first choice winger Last season 3 tries in 12 appearances doesn't set the world alight, hopefully Tigers objectives are significantly higher than that for this season. However, long term investment in Olowo...

Re: Good job Burns has left Bath...

Burns shows sparks of brilliance, but that's it. Had a good run 2007-14 with a mediocre/poor Gloucester side, came to Tigers and did a good job filling in for a long time injured Williams until a better FH deal was made. Played second fiddle to a much better FH at Bath. Apart from his time at Glouc...

Re: Rob Taylor joins as Assistant Coach

First time they’ve not all been ex-Tigers players or friends of the head coach...... this time we’ve actually gone out and recruited properly in the coaching department. Spot on :smt023 I can't remember who the ex Tiger was (Dusty?) who on a podcast bemoaned how Tigers kept on recruiting key roles ...

A shrewd and inspired signing, players will buy into Walters world class methods or they'll get found out quickly! Fitness/S&C coaches are the unsung heroes of a teams success.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

TY is a good skipper. Where others have cried off rather than be team players and continue to work to improve he has stuck around and continued to fight. The new hooker will be a good addition to the squad and help share the load which is important. Agree about TY, leads by example but we need a gr...

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

Hmm Andre Dunn the one that got away. We certainly could have done with a centre to come through for the first team. Sam Wager went to Doncaster and I think he came back for some A league games. Good year for talent production. Dunn had no visa therefore the club couldn’t legally employ him. Now pl...

Re: Jonah Holmes

Not sure what people are seeing in Olawefela! 🤔 To be fair to Olowafela he's been a part of a dysfunctional back line both in attack and defence, with little front foot ball from the forwards so i'd cut any back some slack under those circumstances. I also think he's been slung in at the deep end d...

Re: Jonah Holmes

Jonah is a good player and an asset to our club, however he is not as good as Johnny May, he is a very useful squad player who we picked up from the Championship and developed, he should have played more in his first season but for MOC in my opinion wrongly preferred Malouf. Supposing the rumour to...
