Re: Tigers @ Gloucester - Friday 24th September 2021 - 1945

I’m not surprised the red wine lovers are also the posters with the more balanced and sophisticated views. I’m a Bordeaux man thru and thru tho here in UAE am forced to quaff something pretty average and pricey stuff. All in the aim of a retirement in France where things will be a lot more enjoyabl...

Re: Tigers vs Exeter - Saturday 18th September 2021 - 1500

I found it very frustrating that Tigers supporters in the Crumbie had to suffer the closure of the ABC bar and lounge & adjacent toilets with no access through the tunnel ~ barriers and restrictions in the terrace and stand entirely due to Exeter players and staff falling below the 85% threshold on ...

Re: Tigers vs Exeter - Saturday 18th September 2021 - 1500

Anyone know the official attendance? Great to be back today, the lads left it all out there, and the atmosphere was great, but seemed to be a lot of empty seats… 17333 Yes I am always sceptical on these attendances is it 1) Season ticket tickets + match tickets or 2) Turnstile swipes ? I spoke to o...

Re: Scarlets visit - Thursday 09th September 2021

Well I feel partly to blame for two reasons: 1 - I had forgot to wash my lucky socks between Saturday and this evening 2 - Before I halftime I yelled at the Scarlets in jest to bring on some props who would bother to scrum properly, and they did… Lineout was poor, to me it seems a lifting issue. Ov...

Re: Match day Parking

In past seasons I and about 50 other cars park in the bus lanes on either side of Saffron Lane and walk to the ground. Could any Leicester based Tigers please confirm that both Saffron Lane bus lanes are still available to match day parking and they have not been converted to very wide cycle lanes e...

Re: Away Travel New Season

Well, what an achievement 25 years of the hassle organising coaches, hotels, ferries and fares and all the excess going to charity. Well done John long may you be a travelling supporter.

Really chuffed with the Dan Lancaster signing. We really needed somebody to develop for the post Ford era, whenever that will be! ... assuming he becomes good enough, and assuming he stays that long! I have been watching the England under 20's on Utube and my attention was drawn to Dan Lancaster ea...

Re: Transfers & Rumours Non-Tigers 2020-21

Agen confirmed in the french press a couple days ago Ibitoye wouldn't be coming back to them He certainly does not appear on the Wikie Pro D2 list of Agen signings but I note that Lawrence Pearce ~ late of Tigers has just retired from Agen.. Wow that seems years ago that he was at Tigers, perhaps i...

Re: A statistical comparison of the last 2 seasons

So I've put together some useful statistics to try and see a clearer picture of where we are currently at https://i.imgur.com/bmWoh6U.jpg Its hard to read too much into the results statistics as they have been effected by Covid results but there is obvious improvements there. The scoring stats are ...

Re: Tom Youngs Verdict

It sounds like the RFU made a very unusual decision in this case and even to praising the Tigers QC for his submission. The reasoning behind the judgement is well thought out and I hope Tom and the game will benefit. There is no reference to the Lam incident in this judgement, but for those interest...

Re: Ben Kay leaves the Board

Ben has put such a lot of his strength, time and effort into Tigers over the years and perhaps his broadcasting talents sometimes conflict with his Board position, I do not find him anti Tigers as he has been the voice of reason in front of the cameras several times. Thankyou Ben you have been a gre...

Re: THE BIG ONE - Wasps (A) - 12th June 2021

Sorry but after last weekends game and several others this season I wonder if Luke Pearce and Tom Foley will decide on the result with cards, language, off sides, flat passes and our overpowering scrum? :smt002

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD EPISODE VI: The Return of the Burns

Kieran Brookes and Simon Macintyre announced as leaving Wasps - might one of these two be heading down the M69 to play for us? Would we want either of them? Brookes has unfinished business here of course. Brookes is a "butterfly" of a player, yes a big butterfly. possibly more clubs than my neighbo...

Re: Tom Youngs Charged

Youngs comments along the lines... "What you did mate, is that you're not ******** strong enough to give a penalty try, and you ******** know it". When Tempest asked "Which one?" he said "******** all of them!" then added in "Its ******** criminal" for good measure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...
