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

As Pirelli would say, power is nothing without control. If we can establish a bit of a grip on games, the power we have will be enough. After the three blowouts at Silverstone last Sunday I would consider comparisons to Pirelli for control, grip & power is like using Wasps for financial controls or...

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

Bower for Bateman is a downgrade, but probably not a huge one. I hope Leatigaga is used as 3rd choice LHP. Ahh yes because Bateman was in such terrific form last season. Agreed he had a good season and his LTTV interviews were good BUT he would not commit to Tigers in the time of need and decided t...

Re: Who’s your pick for Lions 2021

Jim Hamilton's Lions side: https://www.rugbypass.com/news/jim-hamiltons-2021-british-and-irish-lions-selection/ Interesting to see Underhill preferred over Curry, I would be surprised if Marler even tours to be honest but apart from that a very decent selection. I too would be surprised if "Little ...

Crane has gone into coaching with the Bears.
Doh, yes, my mistake, not Glaws. I need coffee before I post stuff.
Yes Crane is now "Academy Transition Coach!" https://www.bristolbearsrugby.com/teams/coaching/

Re: Transfers and Rumours Non-Tigers 2019-20

I'am not sure if this listing has been on the messageboard recently but it shows the arrivals & departures quite well. Points of interest ~ Jordan Crane has retired ( presumably to continue his Bristol car wash business) Luke Hamilton to Oyonnax, Gloucester showing Logovi'i Mulipola leaving Glous. a...

Re: Mike Slemen

What a great shame as Mike was a real gentleman, I recall the first time I met him was at Twickenham and as I organised the club's international tickets I always had a West Enclosure, south entrance and armed with the traditional Party Sevens (from the nearby corner shop) under our arms we proceeded...

Re: Tom Youngs

I can't remember seeing anyone look like they care more about Tigers than Tom Youngs. At his best, World class hooker, but always a true Tiger. Tom made the telephone call to my totally isolated season ticketed neighbour on his 75th birthday and they spoke for about 20 minutes and Brian still talks...

Re: New Kit

Has anyone else had an email from Tigers today about the new shop and kit? The one I have received has some background to the bringing of the retail operation back in-house and says that Tigers and the teamwear partners will be the only stockists of the new official Leicester Tigers gear. It won't ...

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

With the Béziers agreement falling through, I would love to entice Semesa Rokodugini here. Sorry JP but I would prefer to develop the young home grown playing strengths we have in the backs, they need game time and this gives them the opportunity. As for Jammy Roberts in the previous post, A BIG NO...

Re: Puzzled

The season after this is when they have to begin to make their books balance - for their somewhat inevitable Premiership return. Taking what we are shown at face value (I know , I know..) I believe that we have to commend those who have re signed and re committed to their club. I do agree, it will ...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

You’re absolutely right, though interestingly Manchester rfc is the oldest in the country along with Blackheath. I am not sure that you are correct on that fact on Manchester RFC.Mark, IIRC then the oldest club was Guy's Hospital established in 1843, then Liverpool RFC in 1857 but Blackheath were f...

Re: Manu Tuilagi

I would think Sale's biggest problem re attendances is being in The North. Manchester is not exactly a hotbed of rugby union fans, unfortunately. Hopefully Manu will start to change that for them, but I won't hold my breath. You’re absolutely right, though interestingly Manchester rfc is the oldest...

Re: Topps Tiles - new main sponsor

The Members stand ceased to exist years ago, it maybe a fond memory for some but it has gone. The slag heap disappeared over 25 years ago when we built the Alliance and Leicester. The club house went as did the Nissan hut, we still have the Crumbie stand and terrace but one day they too will go and...
