A win over Saints is always enjoyable. OK we make a few mistakes but the hunger seems to be back and some of the tackling pretty tasty. Great to see players with smiles again. Mr Nadolo looks like he enjoys it.
Green, white and red shoots of recovery.

Re: Midweek Game - Wed 09 Sep Away to Wasps

the slower we play the worse we are, but our performance wasn't as bad as "Sirs", he was reffing a different game. This above all is very disappointing, Karl Dickson was one of the better refs. He has, I think, gone backwards! I feel all refs have gone backwards and I believe it's the TMO constantl...

Re: Tigers vs Sale - 05 Sep 20

I may be blinkered but all I see are positives in the context that while Sale are a very good powerful team and title contender with a complete game (Their FH is wonderful to watch), we are only a few games into recovery from a 5 year Malaise . SB is building the game from ground up (Quite literall...

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

Lavanini lost the ball in contact, which led to a Gloucester try but I’m not sure if it was a rip or a knock-on, conveniently there was never a replay to show it. But he really stepped up yesterday and played well for most if not all of the game, was very good in close quarters defence and also his...

Let's hope this makes Murphy and SB learn their lesson as regards to selection. I hope so!
Learning lessons is exactly why the selection was made! That and preparing for Europe.

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

Been doing it for the last 2 seasons and yet we still persist with it :smt009 It doesn't help we have a half decent chase that don't want to go up and compete for the ball. You've got to get airborne and get stuck into the guy receiving it. I've defended him a lot on here but Owolfela doesn't look ...

Agree congratulations to Andrea, everyone seems to speak very highly of her. One of the posters on here, it may be Strawclearer, apologies if it isn’t, does sometimes hint he has inside information, it would be interesting to get their take The list of posters who claim inside information is a mass...

I raise you Ryan, Taute, Coghlan, Read, Owen, Cilliers and Viljoen
I fold! Except I still feel Taute may have something to give. And at J P Pietersen I nearly passed out! I think the memory of that much vaunted super winger is what sent me into this debate in the first place!

Re: Sarries vs Leicester - Teams Up

The fact is it's been 7 seasons since Tigers made a premiership final and we have had and continue to experience the 2 worst seasons in our history.. So please can you confirm how many more seasons do you believe we must continue to wait patiently for in order to successfully complete this long hau...

To be fair you do have reason to be cynical / grumpy. I play Jerome Schuster and raise you Joe Ford.
I see your Joe Ford and raise you Matt Toomua.

I see your Franck Tournaire and I raise you Santiago Gonzales Bonorino.

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

I don't know where you'd find that size and try scoring ability for less. The PI monsters who can play rugby aren't just waiting to be discovered anymore there's scouts over there picking them up from an early age. His try scoring record is ridiculous and so is his skillset. Having him causing abso...

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

Nadolo deal is rumoured to be £240k and a 2 year deal. Not bad for a player of his quality on the wing. I imagine May will have been offered something similar. Sounds too much to me for a player four years past his best. I don't know where you'd find that size and try scoring ability for less. The ...

Re: Tigers vs Worcester

Could not attend game as currently unwell. But from reports on here it seems it was ‘business as usual’ in many aspects of the game, and we scraped a win. Please correct me if this is wrong! Given the current ranking of both teams, a close contest was perhaps expected. I hope you're wearing a face ...
