Re: Where will we finish

Take nothing for granted: Quins v Irish proved that: Gloucester has it form too and Saints just played the wrong game against us. Wasps will come very strong one they get some players back. Then there’s Chiefs and Sarries: getting the wins again and Sarries only loss was to us! When did Tigers achie...

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2021/22 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACTS: Lord of the Mauls

Sarries makes sense to me: more money, move nearer to Twickenham, as well coached as any team, as good if not even better chance of winning things with them! Next few Tigers’ games crucial now: beat Quinsand start well in Europe then we may hang on to players. Lastly, when Cockerill got the sack Gen...

Never mind injuries! Are our South Africans and Argentinians back in Leicester/Leicestershire?

Re: Austin Healy

Austin just wants consistency. In yesterday’s Quins’ game there was a similar if not the same incident when two Quins players went into the Irish guy! TMO calls for a review but Christophe rightly judges it’s just a penalty! Sensible reffing is needed along with the need to protect players: in my lo...

Re: Next Number 10 ?

No point paying silly money. We have really benefitted from George not playing for England this season. Hegarty might develop into a very good fly half, so might Lancaster: Freddie Burns could certainly do it if he stays fit. Any international fly half we sign will be missing for too many games. At ...

Re: Tigers vs Quins - 05th December 2021 - 3-00pm

I’m sure, injuries permitting, SB will pick what he believes is the strongest side v Quins. Huge game as both teams should have good squads.
Personally I do think Reffel has to be in the squad: Quins won’t change the way they play so will look to attack all game.
Will rustiness affect us!! Could do!

Re: Wasps (A) PRC - 20th November 2021 13:30 ko

Shame some fans are moaning! Let’s not forget not long ago we put out a much weaker side in the cup v Wasps and got hammered! As we have a rest week next week some players need game time: we didn’t play George Ford, Dolly, Genge, Youngs, Montoya, Moroni, Wiese etc due to rest and internationals: Bur...

Hope we get out for Sinfield

I hope lots of us can spare a few minutes to get out on Monday to cheer Kevin on.
I’m going to Nottingham Road Barrow Upon Soar.
Go Kevin Go.

Re: Wasps (A) PRC - 20th November 2021 13:30 ko

An excellent team for Saturday. I hope we don’t do what Sale did last week but bet Steve Borthwick will try to make sure there’s no complacency. As others have said, Wasps, despite another awful injury list, remain a dangerous side.
Should win but for me another win will be brilliant.

Re: George Fords Departure - Why ?

I think the point some of the fans who are forwards are making is that if the pack is one of the best then a good to very good fly half can prosper. I was a back and agree Fly Half is very important but we won a lot of games last season against good teams without George! He’s going: I will cheer on ...

You mean George Ford! He might as well play this week end!
Now maybe folks who moan about Ben Youngs will now really appreciate his loyalty!
As for the best fly half I’ve ever seen for a Tigers: Joel Stransky.

Re: George Fords Departure - Why ?

Always liked the way George played the game going right back to his days in the team as a youngster. I did think at a couple of games this season, particularly Saints away that he seemed detached from us fans calling our thanks to him and the squad doing their lap of honour. He will want his place b...
