Re: TMO question

Slightly different tack. 2 very close tmo calls in Russia v Samoa this morning both given yellows. Bayfield and his crew in the studio felt both should have been red what channel was that on, didn't show in my EPG nor is it showing on ITV Hub ITV 4. I think that’s where they are putting some of the...

Re: Tigers Financial Loss

No surprises there then, Season ticket have fallen from about 15,500 to 11000, that’s hell of a drop. The product on the pitch has been second rate at the very best! The days are long gone when you would buy a season ticket to almost guarantee to make sure you got first dibs at any Finals tickets! ...

Re: Dave Denton Announces Retirement

Today is a very sad day for Tigers and Dave Denton. On 6th October last year at Twickenham we supported Saints in their benefit game for Rob Horne whose playing career was finished in the opening seconds of the previous Tigers v Saints game at Welford Road. At Twickenham we lost Jonny May in the fir...

Re: James Haskell

Do we think that he'll really do it or is it media exposure to get on strictly! If the answer is "James Haskell " then you are asking the wrong question! This is just for publicity and he is hoping that his in-laws open a few more doors for him in the tv world. So glad he was never a Tiger. :smt019

No doubt Messrs Scott and Toms will do conduct a world wide search to ensure we get a world class owner, and we will end up with a debt laden management buy-out, lead by Matt O'Connor and Phil Blake.

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...

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...
