Re: Tigers on TV today

We were at Sarries when Corry got sent off. It was right in front of us and poor Cozza had had enough of the ref not punishing Sarries for a variety of late tackles and cheap shots! At the time I think he had been elbowed to the throat so lashed out: my memory of who he hit is vague; might have been...

Re: Tigers on TV today

Thanks: at the time I was typing my dear wife was choosing her “Fit Looking “ Best Tigers’ team from 2000-2020 and mentioned Corry so I remembered him lamping Rodber one at a lineout at Welford Road v Saints. As you can see I realised my mistake after pressing submit to then put Robshaw. Must concen...

Re: Tigers on TV today

The best one was the one that was played in the league at The Stoop about a month earlier than the cup final. Great game even though my wife and I were sat right behind the posts where poor Tom Croft was so seriously injured. Take Tom’s injury out and it was a fantastic game of rugby. At Twickers Th...

Re: Could this be the end for some clubs?

These are sad times and everyone keeping well is the priority. Hopefully, like my wife and I who are lifelong (40years) season ticket holders, true fans will renew their season tickets and get back to cheering the team on home and away next year. The problem now isn’t just the health issues but the ...

Re: Breakthrough player of the season

I think I read that both Costello and Reffell we’re leaving, to go to Wales, maybe I was wrong!

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2019/20 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD PART 3

Like Crane, Kalamafoni will be sorely missed as he always gives everything and more importantly has been an ever present. To be honest I’m fed up of us signing players who aren’t fit at the time of signing. Ok, players could still pick up injuries after signing but let’s hope Brink is another Tuilag...

Re: Sarries vs Leicester - Teams Up

Well looking at the results this weekend shows anything can happen to any team apart from Exeter, Sale and Sarries. Look at Wasps: didn’t look great v us then beat a very weak ( if ever there is such a thing) Sarries side and now they’re in the top 6. I just hope we can get an away win this season a...

Re: Sarries vs Leicester - Teams Up

Eastmond had another very good game and when he became captain the backs began to improve. It’s frustrating as a win today would have put us within touch of top 6! Our attack still lacks running lines and invention which, considering Mike Ford is coach is baffling. Please Geordan now target Exeter a...

Re: Sarries vs Leicester - Teams Up

Good effort by Tigers. The difference was: their bench better Cole, Bateman couldn't carry on the great work of Heyes and LadyGaga TVs card and then Lewington proved what we all know: a class act who we should have got back. Lots of pride shown and I’d start with the same front row v Exeter as start...

Re: Sarries vs Leicester

Go for the win please. I keep going to away games hoping for a decent performance: last time I saw us win away was Newcastle and we should have won at Twickers. Beat Sarries and confidence will be high. As for the artificial pitch: our best performances in the last two years away from home have been...

Re: Cockers

Richard Cockerill didn’t get rid of players but, rightly, would never guarantee player’s fist team rugby! Fact: Waldron, rightly left, as did Twelvetrees and quite a few others due to us not being able to match others clubs salary offers. He won’t be coming back but I now keep an eye on results wher...

Re: Tigers vs Worcester

Being at the game TV thoroughly deserved his Man of The Match: kicked and chased well, took his disallowed( rightly) try very well, great dancing feet and was high tackled at least 3 times yet no moaning from him, brilliant cover tackles and runs onto the ball at speed. Holmes I felt was off form an...

Re: Murphy's "vision".

A huge problem for Tigers is that again we didn’t have a great pre-season due to World Cup call ups for at least 10 of our first fifteen and 3-4 new signings didn’t come until the season had started. Then look at the injuries: ok all teams get them but look what’s happened to Quins since they have p...

Re: Kyle Eastmond

Kyle Eastmond has played very well all season and he cannot help how others around him play. At Sale after Taute went off he was encouraging those around to defend by getting into the line faster: not his fault the backs didn’t respond. The only good half away from home care at Quins when, surprise,...
