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 raise you Frank Tournaire
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 ...

Re: New Kit

Excellent. There’s 4 months of moaning material before July 1st! :smt003 Love it! 😂. But surely you don't mean on this Forum? Forum. Twitter. Facebook. Welford Road on Tuesday night. I reckon the green will be all wrong for starters. And at least one hoop will be the wrong dimension. We probably wi...

Re: Change of Tune

Benny hill theme tune seems more appropriate just now. :smt005 (not a serious post, for the pedants). I'm with the Benny Hill thing. It could also replace the warm up. They could also come out in Morris dancing kit and beat the bejesus out of opposition players with their sticks as they went past. ...

Re: England v Ireland

England very good defensively but still a lot of work-ons in my point of view. Still at least Farrell has learnt to wrap. It was embarrassing, like watching some kid having a tantrum after being told no! Can we please have a new skipper!!! Indeed, but Jones will never drop him. Watching Farrell bei...

Re: Sale vs Leicester - 21st February 2020

Did I say get rid on Monday? Was that my wish?? - This is has been a decline for 4-5 seasons and persons in all departments have accepted poor performances as the norm. For all the excuses I have stated. If we had dealt with this at point of origin we wouldn't be scratting at "reasons " for our dec...

Re: Sale vs Leicester - 21st February 2020

Some one has said it P45's If I am not up to the role for which I am employed. I either go into remedial training or shown the door. Why are professional sports persons across all sports treated as "untouchables" We can all have an off day. When the off days become the norm - then something is wron...

Re: Sale vs Leicester - 21st February 2020

Obviously I will be at Welford Road and at Sarries but luckily I couldnt get to Sale last night. I thought only a few players really seemed to care last night and the only rugby joy last night was Edinburgh’s win as I am a Richard Cockerill fan, always have been. The worry for all of us is for 2 ye...

Re: Sale vs Leicester - 21st February 2020

Do we have any backs moves we can execute other than through 3/4 sets of hands then kick it away or get turned over? Loops, wrap arounds - anyone remember them? Is that something to do with knitting perhaps? Looks like they have probably spent more time knitting than practising moves and line outs ...
