Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Steve Borthwick and the Chamber of Oval Park

Shame to see Nemani Nadola confirmed as leaving to NSW Waratahs.
Dragons clearing the ex Tigers team - Greg Bateman released, Jonah Holmes released, Joe Maksymi released, and Jordan Olowofela returned to Tigers!!! :smt039

Re: Boots?

I have a grand daughter playing soccer at a high level and her boots are so light it must be like playing in socks, my old aluminium studs alone weighed twice as much as her boots, in fact I think my socks were heavier even after the mud was removed. Aluminium ones were very quickly made illegal, w...

Re: EPCR Quarter finals

Todays Racing v Sale ~ I just feel sorry for Sale as the Referee is the indecisive Andrew Brace of Ireland with his favourite TMO Joy Neville of Ireland. (Are they really a couple?) With Evans of Wales and Busby of Ireland on the flags.
I hope Sale do the job but I despair at the officials.

Re: PRC Semi final vs London Irish (A) - 26th April 2022

With Arundell you have to also point out London Irish also have Tom Parton who is IMO up there in terms of English Fullbacks, prior to his injury I'd have said he wasn't far behind Steward in terms of playing for England (certainly should be ahead of the likes of Daly and Furbank playing there) Hav...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Aled Walters and the Philosopher's Stone

Here’s my thing with Nadolo. Once in a generation player BUT he’s also 35 next season, he’s imo a worry in defense now the speed of the wingers coming through are just getting faster and Nadolo won’t be quicker next season either. I think he’s been brilliant this year but part of me does worry that...

Quins have entered a strategic partnership with London Scottish, one assumes this will be somewhat similar to our relationship with Nottingham? https://londonscottish.com/london-scottish-and-harlequins-announce-strategic-partnership/ Isn’t that young Tuilagi final place on his tour of clubs, or was...

Best wishes to Tom and his family in his retirement Tom's last game for us was the pre-season Tigers v Scarlets on 9th September where we came second 24 - 29 in a stop start game. https://www.leicestertige...

Re: Newcastle (A) Friday night -18th March 2022 - PRC

Ideal situation is to win the PRC and give youngsters loads of experience. Of the 2 I'd say the latter is far more important. I have no issue with anyone who is disappointed with defeat though. I have just had a look at the appearances for the Newcastle squad and there are over 650 club appearances...
