Re: New Kit

Quality of C.T was excellent. - They were good for that era of Rugby. The game has changed where tackling a player now requires tight fitting shirts. C.T and poor Fran Cotton was left behind.( Like most of us "Old sweats") Ah! but the CT Cotton traders shirts still live on and by magic they still s...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2018-19

Thanks for the news Strawclearer on the transfers on "old Tigers!", even though Jack Roberts scored against us I would not recommend he returns here, but his aspirations were blown in Wales! So I had a quick scan at the current transfers & leavers of ex Tigers that I am aware of ~ ( yes I know the l...

Re: Geordie up before the beak...

The ref was awful. One of, if not the worst performance from a ref I’ve ever seen since I’ve been watching rugby. If only referees could be replaced at half time when they are having a bad game, like players can. I would say the same, even if we had won the game. What a shame we do not have red and...

Re: Catering & Bar Feedback Season 2017/18 & 2018/2019

I view the appointment of Levy UK part of the Compass Group as a really positive way forward. With them already holding the catering contract for the Leicester City FC this hopefully means that their already trained casual and permanent staff can cross the road and deliver a better hospitality,cater...

Re: Smithy

One Club, One positive attitude, One great motivator of those about him and One that should be considered as a member of a newly formed " Tigers Playing Management" whilst Board Members Underwood and Kay consider their input to an horrendous season. Very many thanks Smithy not a lot of tries but one...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2018-19

It looks as though Conor O'Shea's time as Italy's Head Coach is up as Franco Smith has announced he is taking over!! So where does that leave O'Shea if he knows he is departing? and where is Italy's backs & attack coach Mike the Catt going? Italy's playing record is similar to Tigers so we do not wa...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2018/19 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 7

So assuming Coghlan and Liebenberg join as expected, are we expecting any further back row arrivals? Will Thompson and Reffell be the only 7’s in the squad? Will Denton carry on playing? Will Tuilagi and Mapapalangi stay on as projects? Chewbacca is not the only one confused! Who are ~ Will Thompso...

Re: Quins vs Tigers

Sorry..this is brainless tripe. I've packed all my shirts into s parcel and am sending them back to the club. If they've got no pride in the colours why in the name of all that's holy should I. This was a sad day for you Big Dai, so we are not relegated ~ is it time for a small sip of Remy and pint...

Re: Positivity needed

Very good points from Ian above, but what annoyed many of us this season and particularly last night was the persistent box kicks from OUTSIDE the 22 which often went straight to Brown and we know his England records for catch & go and this occurred several times. Please ban box kicks outside the 22...

Re: Quins vs Tigers

Our season probably comes down to what sort of team Glaws put out against Falcons, with third already pretty much nailed on (10 points up on Saints who travel to Chiefs on the last day). The Referee for the Glous. game is Tom Foley who we have had mixed results with (at least it is not Luke Pearce ...

Re: Ellis Genge

of the whole thing you pick one of the ones who clearly has and still doesn't give up?!?! He does as much as Cole at a minimum, without the penalty or mistake count. He's one of the best in the forwards right now... In the latter stages of the second half Gengie and Coley won a series of scrums aga...

Only two teams have announced more than 5 players.

People acting like we are miles behind others in terms of announcements. We are really not. I had...
